new mini, good plan or not?

Unread postAuthor: cardinals08 » Fri Dec 23, 2005 11:10 pm

What do you think of this? A mini with a regular size Tylenol bottle for a chamber, 2-3 pen tubes for barrles, you could leave a long nosed grill lighter in tact and put the end in the bottle so you can have butane fuel by pushing the button slightly so it doesnt trigger the spark, then when you think you have enough butan, push the button and BOOM! There would be no need for a cap this way and you could vent by blowing in one barrel, and air would come out the other(s)

The lighters tube is hollow and will not seal but, I'm not sure if it would matter in a mini. Put the end of the lighter in your mouth and blow... you will see what I mean. If you could get the lighter to not leak air somehow... it would work great!

I havent gotten around to doing this, I have done a double barreled shot gun though, to get the lighter to seal I could take the barrel off, stick JB weld down, put the barrel back on and viola.

If there is butane in the chamber there is a risk for the lighter not to ignite.And the air comming form your mouth isn't O2 rich.If it don't work take out the gas tank out of the lighter and try again.

Just make sure you block the butane tank, those things pack a punch on fumes alone, try smashing one on the ground.
