Ironic because it's a fire extinguisher. And yes, i do know the stupidity in this and the chance of explosion. But i live for danger.




EDIT: I can't embed?

What chance for explosion is there?

Flamethrowers are quite safe for the user because as long as the tank can survive the pressure the fuel is stored at, it won't fail. Some people seem to think that the flame could somehow travel backward to the tank, but I'm sure you're not that stupid... So what is the risk here, other than to the idiot holding the lighter in front of it?

If it's one thing that pisses me off it's people who don't understand stoichiometry and say explosions are possible in an incredibly unbalanced mixture, or even 100% fuel.

No i didn't know that. I knew it wouldn't explode but i thought it would when the fuel/air mix ratio gets at a point to where it's like a hybrid.

So... are flamethrowers like a gray area in the "flaming projectile" department? I've never really heard one way or the other (Doesn't mean I want the topic locked :)).

You weren't allowed to talk about them back on Spudtech....

I for one like homemade flamethrowers, please let the topic stay.

thats easy to make just get a schrader with a 1/8"NPT and replace it with the existing gauge that doesn't tell you the psi, just when to recharge

I think that the only risk is if there start to be bubbles even then the chance of it traveling into the tank are ridiculous I ought to make on once I get a 1/8" NPT which may be never because my resistance to buying stuff on the internet

Ta-da! Embedded. You need to use [youtube] [/youtube] to embed youtube into posts. You will find a button for it in the "complex" posting.
