Fabulous! Many thanks for risking life and limb to get those photos posted!

I’ve often wondered if people who sectioned tracers ever had any ignite in the process…

I would say it depends much on the tools used. Power driven tools certainly raise the chance for an unintended ignition.

I have sectioned many tracers. I use hand tools instead of powered and have never ignited one.
