apologies, there's tons of this kind of bullshit out there on the web, and
it doesn't have anything to do with a lathe or milling machine, but, this
seemed pretty funny to me, wanted to show you guys.
seems one could spend hours at this site.  (oh, oops, he uses some of the
photos in multiple categories)

I can relate to the shotgun using match heads for powder.

In high school we used to make single shot pistols using a bicycle
spoke. A shotgun pellet in the bottom of the wheel part, followed by
match heads. Then the spoke was screwed back into place. The wire
spoke was held and a lighter flame applied to the wheel part and "pop"
goes the pellet.

Was not a rapid fire device!

Sounds like a typical "Zip gun" device.

You didn't try it with the spokes still on a wheel, mounted on an axle?
Load all the spokes. apply heat sequentially.
Ought to be good for, what, 30 rounds?
