Very few folks know there are formal 'clubs' for pyrotechnics.  

We have many members who deeply love the art, but the guild doesn't tolerate 'bangers'... people who just like to burn stuff or make noise.  We actively promote safety and artistic display of pyrotechnics, and lobby our politicians to keep them legal in as many places as possible.  

Also, as you see with our Florida Guild, most guilds and clubs around the country have at least one charity to receive some of their efforts in the form of staged, high-quality shows.

You won't see fireworks as well-made or as artistically displayed anywhere, even from the big international pyro companies, except perhaps on the island of Malta and in Japan, both where it's a national obsession.

I'm 70, and have been actively building fireworks from scratch since I was 14.  I joined the Florida Guild in 1995, three years (sorry, ONE year) after it was formed.  We had 22 members, then.  Now we have almost 200!

Hi Steve, may I ask you what rotary axis are you using?
Nice jobs!


It's an old Haas 5C indexer. My buddy got it as part of a big lot of stuff at an auction. I had to tear it apart and clean it up. Put new bearing balls in it. Also had to repair the closer, it's compressed air actuated and leaked rel bad. After that all worked out A new stepper was fitted and now it works real nice. Paid nothing and have about 100$ in repairs.

Steve, you never stop to amaze me  Shocked
Waiting to see the little beast running.

Going to be a while. I have a 4 year plan. Takes most people 3 years to build one. I'm going to try 2 in 4 years.

Which engine are you building?

It's the Hodgson 9 cylinder. Started out making 2 of everything thinking I would get one good one of everything. Haven't made any mistakes yet so I made 22 cylinders and have started 20 heads so I guess i'm building 2 or I will have a huge pile of spare parts.

I'm currently working on a document to summarize all the ways Cambam can be used with a 4th axis ... but certainly it will take months until it was finished and translated in english  Roll Eyes

Who knew there was such a thing as a Fireworks Club?   Huh

Pyromaniacs unite!

Sounds like fun.
"Pyromaniacs striking matches ..." - remembered an old song from Dr. Hook  Grin

Lloyd, it'll be nice to see more bragging like this.
