Idea: Use hairspray without the gunk left from burning.

Unread postAuthor: Extrusion » Sun Oct 08, 2006 11:28 pm

ok so i used to use hairspray and after only a few shots there was a thick slime in the chamber now i understand the stuff used to propel the hairspray out of the bottle is the combustible stuff so i had the following idea.

1st Get a normal coke bottle and drill a hole in the cap small enought for a shrader(cant spell it the little tire valves.) valve to fit in nice and tight if there are any leaks put some epoxy around the valve.

2nd spray alot of hairspray inside the bottle and put the cap on then pressurize the bottle to around 50-60 psi or so with a bike pump or compressor ( dont worry it shouldnt blow at these psi's) now wait for all the liquid floating inside the bottle to settle on the sides and bottom of the bottle leaving only the propelent floating inside!

To fill your chamber simply put the bottle inside your chamber and put the pin inside the valve with your fingernail (Not sure for how long proply the same length of time it took with the normal hairspray can) then when you have the desired ammount of fuel take the bottle out screw the end cap on and fire!

Im not 100% sure if it will work but it sounds like it would i havent got the chance to try it yet because its 12:30 now and i dont feel like bothering with to much at the moment.

Post comments suggestions and ideas.

Or... use propane! Or turn the bottle upside down!

Hmm seems liek a good way to get a straight fuel. But it seems like a lot of work to do.
Plus it defeats the purpose of combustions.
Quick, no pumps and no other gay stuff.
But it sounds like a good idea.

srry it was just an idea :P

breakfast cereal with nicotine would probly taste like shyt since the nicotine gum tastes like...shyt lol although that wouldnt ruin your lungs or lip lol.

it would be just like having a full bottle of hairspray if you sprayed it all into the bottle and would still be quick i will try it tommarow beings i ran out of propane (Reason this whole idea came up.)

Ha or straight nicotine...well nvm 100% nicotine would kill you beings nicotine is a poison.

Yes ciggarets contain enough nicotine to kill you ( i think) but most of it is burned away i read somewhere that soaking a pack of them in water then doing variouse other steps i shall not revel will produce pure nicotine wich is so potent a few drops even on your skin will kill you.

Rightguards formula is no longer flammible so no i dont think so unless you have an older can propane is pretty cheap and with a good meter it is extremely powerful you could use it.

Hi I am new on this site, but I have been making these for many years. I have always used Brakleen that is used to clean oil off of brakes when you do a brake job on your car. There is two kinds, you want the one with toluleen. The flamable kind. My potato gun is double walle in the cumbustion chamber So it can handle the pressure.

Hope this helps

I have a bar of soap with nicotine in it. It's pretty cool, just wake up jump in the shower and forget the morning cigarette.
