crazy spark strip and fan

you should have seen a 3d version of this a week or so ago in my sig
the spark strip is simple enough, if it stops working, I can take the whole thing out, adjust the wing nuts to lengthen the gaps, or i can close them completely and use one big gap if fuel fails to ignite.

the fan is sort of one of those traveling fans, but it wasn't a handheld one, unlike what DR and SMOMW used, it is supposed to run on 6v, not 3v, damn bloody powerful too, also the whole motor is sealed off, so the sparks inside it will not ignite the gas, the bad news is that the wire is very thin so as you see, i hooked it to a thicker wire and also put it in a vinyl tubing so it is protected from combustion gases and also protects from ignition sparks.

i doubt the fan blades will survive long, i broke one already, and hot glued it back in place.

it was supposed to be a nice looking thingy, but in the process of making it, my hand got injured and after that, i just got lazy.

wait so let me get this straight, you adjust the length of the spark by rotating the wing nuts so that the distance between the wings varies correct..?
That is a really good idea... to bad about the weakness of the fan.. also im not sure but if somehow the mood gets some liquid fuel on it and you shoot it, the whole contraption will burn

in my experiance, one combustion never burns for more than a second.
the wood wont burn on its own after a combustion because all of the oxygen in the chamber will be used up in the combustion.
