I’m assuming that both of these caps involve melting lead or solder into a cap. I always wanted to do this but my parents wouldn’t let me operate a soldering iron in my youth, much less a plumber’s torch (which you need to melt a lead sinker effectively).
However, in my adulthood and, as I mentioned earlier, armed with a Home Depot credit card, I have melted a fishing sinker into a bottlecap. The blasting power is tremendous, and you need relatively little lead (I filled a cap “to the brim” and it was so heavy as to be nearly unshootable). You sure as heck melt all the paint off the cap in the process, though!
When I got a little older and was allowed to use a soldering pencil, I used it to melt the wax/candle into bottlecaps… probably safer than using matches, IMHO!
Kids, don’t try this at home. Please look forward to the Streetplay instructional video series “Streetplay Skully 101” coming to this site in the next few months.
