    hiya people..

    i'd like to fit a spark generator/ heat source (glo plug?) into a
    space
    between 1.5 and 2 in long.
    1.5 in. high.. anywhere in there.

    is this possible? glo plug, battery, microswitch, all in a space so
    small?

    how else could it be done?
    how do those electric lighters work? they have a nice spark produced
    from small works.

    what's the smallest glo plug?
    what's the minimum current requirements of glo plugs?

    all i need is a spark or a hot coil for a second to trigger a
    theatrical effect.
    the spark sets off a tiny bit of flash paper. poof. small.
    no i don't want finger flashers and other flint wheel asmemblies.

    the whole works should fit into a space about half the size of a
    matchbox.

    best,
    B
