Today I started out making my first igniters out of cat5 and 36 gauge nichrome. Word to teh wise: this stuff POKES you. it hurts too. Anyways, I used Jim Ball's method and used a radio shack wire-wrap tool. These igniters take about 1-2 minutes for me to make, 3 or 4 including stripping. Does anyone have tips for stripping cat5? I tried the radio shack stripper, that's hard to do but gets easier with practice. I made maybe 25 in an hour. More pics later.
