Since a flamethrower would probally be either a Class 2 or Class 3 weapon, yes you would be arrested and charged with some heavy stuff. Don't be suprised if more than 1 officer draws their weapons on you.

If you build a flame thrower use of it should only be in a secluded area where no one will mind and it's safe, not your front yard and down the block.

Yes you'll be in big trouble.
Flametrowers are banned internationally I believe.Weapon of war they call it here.It would be just as bad as shooting a machinegun in the streets

nah, flame throwers arent illegal, just not regulated like a firearm. for the most part they are legal in the united states. I live in a redneck state where they burn blueberry fields every year and all the local farmers use flamethrowers made out of modified fire extinguishers (ironic huh?)
Check out rolandtowers post on somethingawful.com i made a flamethrower sort of like his using non flammable c02 to pressurize the fuel tank.
im not 100% sure but i think there is a limit to the amount of flame making the flamethrower illegal. Of course the biggest factor to determine if its legal or not is how its being used. If you shot someone with a spud gun you'd probably get bagged for assault with a deadly weapon, if you did something simmilar with a flamethrower you would be nailed for arson, attempted murder and a dozen other felonys.
check out this moron torching stuff with a fire extinguisher made flamethrower.

yeah they are designed to be refillable but not how these guys filled it, they used compressed air and a schrader valve. this is VERY dangerous because air, as we all know, is fuel for a fire, when you have a pressurized fuel tank it is imperitave that methods be used not to let a flame suck back into the pressurized fuel tank (flashback arrest valve or something like that). If a flame was to suck back into the tank (from letting go of the trigger with a "pilot flame" still burning for example) it would explode violently, kinda like an overfueled and overpressurized hybrid

I am not shure but there was demistraion of a workshop rag on fire and (the stuff also comes in a arisol can) sprayed it on the rag and the fire went out then he put a blow torch on the rag and it didn't cach fire fire again. how it works :? :? i don't know and I think it drives away the carbon (sorry for saying distroy)
P.S. Go to rotteneggs.com you can most likly find a flame thrower there and then some :D

BC Pneumatics ill try to post some pics (I really want to ) but at the moment the digital cam is broken can someone tell me how to use a cellphone cam to post pics? any way I was going to use propane as a pressureriser (like in real flamers) I saw it on www.howstuffworks.com but in the end my mom would'nt let me use it as a force (I was a little parnoid to even tho I was sure it was safe)

It drives away the carbon?! Does it replace it with silicon, maybe? :lol: Yeah, I'm sure it has nanobots that make half-burnt rags indistructible. Or maybe it involves temporary phase-shifting. You know, ripples in spacetime and the like. Or this "demistraion" technology you talk of.

Sorry, but I HAD to do it. It's just too damn funny.
Drives away the carbon, he sais. :lol:

stop mocking me i will find out soon :evil:

UPDATE: ok it is called cold fire and it encapsulates the hydrocarbons and accelerates the biodegradation of the hydrocarbons thereby helping to prevent re-ignition when properly applied

there i was almost right so stop mocking me

here is a simple flame thrower
red string=nicrome(sp)wire
red box=9V battery
things coming out of the battery=thick wire
big yellow box=arisol(sp) can
black strip=tape

Creating a spark with a 9V eh? Wont work... Even if you installed a stronger spark emmiting component I wouldnt think it work well. A small pilot flame would be a better choice, which could be made out of a butane lighter.

It isn't a spark it is nicrome(sp)wire when a electrical current runs through it it gets really hot and should ignight(sp)the arisol cans propellant (if flammable propellant)

I made a flametrower once out of a small aerosol with a "one touch"lighter taped to it.
Could be operated with one hand.
works like a charm
