Has anyone got hints on fusing cakes/candles/shot tubes together?

I'm thinking of taping up 2 shot tubes and twisting the fuses together anyone tried this or similar?

Here is how I connected 4 plasmic lights together successfully last year.

cool that what I was thinking, like the look of the fuse used in the vid but don't know what it is or where to get it?

Hi, I'm new to this fusing business but want to fuse some of my barrages to run in a line for my finale this year. It looks simple enough and I understand about working out spacing for the burn rate of the visco fuse so it doesn't all blow up at once, but is it really as simple as using tape to connect the fuse? Is it better worse or no different to using cable ties? Any advice or pointers is gratefully received

use zip wire from the pound store and masking tape work great

I was gonna say just quick match them but you want them to go at different times?

Be careful about connecting Fuse the way picture shows as it may effect fuse delay time. By sticking visco together you will speed up the burn time alot kinda like when you have a few sparklers held together. Also warping it in tape will do this. So make sure you have a single strand of visco as your primary. Great tip's for delays sparklers make great time delays bend the handle so it looks like an L shape stick the handle in the ground so sparkler compound runs flat and attach your firework fuse at intervals you can get pretty good timing doing this and you can just keep adding sparklers great thing about this is you can get ignition flat to fireworks on both sides wich is great for single shot stuff above :)
