Default For the insurgency minded home handyman - Build your own Nuke!

From the armaments of shot down attack helicopters, or from spent ordinance recovered at battle sites, find 30mm Depleted Uranium rounds.

Reduce the captured DU to swart with a lathe, acquire redundant 175 mm High Explosive artillery shells, remove the fuse and base plate from the shells and drill holes into the HE.

In an argon purged environment, to prevent the DU swart from spontaneously combusting, pack the Uranium swart into the drill holes, replace the base plate, fit the primer and detonator and voila .. a home made nuke.

Reason that the tremendous heat and pressure, generated when the High Explosive detonates inside the 175 mm artillery shell case, enriches the DU and precipitates a nuclear blast.
