Thermite is NOT an explosive and is legal to make in most areas.  I'm sure in Deomoncrat states they would hassle you if they find out you made some.

 

Correct:  Thermite is not an explosive.  That's what Tannerite is for.

I have heard you can ignite Thermite reliably by using cannon fuse run into a small bag or pouch of black powder or gun powder.  The small bag is closed with tape that holds the cannon fuse in the bag.  You can use aluminum soda cans as the canister to create Thermite grenades.  As I already said doing it is legal.  It is what you plan to do with it that can get you in trouble.

Thermite Grenades 

Because of their heat and volatility, thermite grenades are almost never used as an offensive or defensive weapon against people. The weapon is used almost exclusively for destroying enemy materials in a secure and controlled environment.

 

Thermite grenades (designated the M14) are one of the most destructive weapons used by the U.S. military. Thermite is a powerful incendiary device used to produce intense heat through a chemical reaction and destroys anything it touches. 

 

Thermite is known as a "pyrotechnic composition" that burns intensely when ignited. When detonated, thermite grenades produce molten iron from a violent reaction of the weapon’s thermite filler. Some thermite grenades have been known to burn at temperatures of nearly 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Thermite grenades are capable of burning through an engine block in seconds. 

 

Therefore the extreme heat makes thermite grenades is great for destroying enemy weapons/gear caches, bunkers, and vehicles. These are the type of targets that are ideal for use of the thermite grenade. The chemical makeup of Thermite is an aluminum powder (metal powder) and metal oxide (also known as rust).

 

Used Underwater

Thermite grenades use iron oxide as an oxidizing agent and they are able to function underwater and can be used by soldiers when their gear is submerged in lakes, rivers, and oceans.

 

The U.S. military provides detailed instructions and training to soldiers on the careful handling and use of thermite grenades to avoid injury or harm to themselves or unit.

Iron oxide is rust.  Old bridges submerged seasonally are a great source of iron oxide.  It appears on this type of iron as deep scales which can be easily broken off in dry weather, ground up by hand and stored.  Fine Aluminium powder can be obtained at a machine shop.  It is waste for them.  You may have to mix/grid  them vigorously in something suitable.  You may have to add water as you are grinding them together.  Then let dry.  As the videos show, it does not take much to disable large machinery.
