How to remove big stumps.20kg ANFO

I buy explosives from a licenced supplier. We use safety fuse, no.8 detonator, detcord, 1/2 stick powergel for primer charge and 8 -10kg anfo for each stump. Did ya see the hunk that ended up on the flats? Its still there, a good scratching post for the bulls.

Flash powder log splitting
What to do when a log is a bit too tough to split with an axe? Use flash powder instead. Obvious really! Around 3gm of Mg/NaNo3 flash powder (my thanks to Dornier335A for the inspiration) in a 10mm hole drilled into the log, capped with bentonite to stop sparks setting it off early, and a visco fuse. Skip to 1:21 if you're just here for the bangs! Enjoy.





Let's Blast!
NOTE: Although this video shows an up-close look at the blasting process, NEVER go near an active surface mine or blast site without Federal training and permission. FYI, the white bags are Emulsified Ammonium Nitrate. The read cap is TNT and the silver rod that is connected to it by the yellow wire is the blasting cap, it's what ignites the shot. The white pebbles that are emptied into the blast holes by the powder trucks are the main explosive- "ANFO" or Ammonium Nitrate, which is a mixture of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Once the holes are filled with explosives, rock fines or "stemming" is pushed back in the holes and packed down to keep the explosives under pressure. After all the holes are loaded and rigged up, it's time for the fireworks! And remember kids, don't try this at home! Want to see more Blasting?
