Name: Fog Machine , Model: 400 N88GB , Power: 400w , Fuse: T3A/250V , Volts: 230V/50HZ (Manual from maplins)


Check the level of 'fuel', if necessary refill it with 'smoke fluid'. Plug it in, let it warm. Once the light on the small hand set goes out press the button and smoke should come out.

Smoke rings

You will need:

  • Some form of reasonably air tight hose/tubing (something like extractor fan flexi tube is excellent)
  • A container with 3 holes in
    • One large hole: the entire end of one of the SMA tin cans works well
    • One 'entrance' hole - best put in the side of a tin can and about the right size to attach to the tube
    • Smoke hole - this should be smaller (perhaps 50%) of the total diameter and needs to be in the opposite end of the tin can to the large hole

Attach hose & can with hole to the nozzle on the smoke machine; fill the tin can with smoke then flick what ever rubber glove/balloon etc has been put over the can to (theoretically) create smoke rings
