what is acetone? i have seen a combutel blow up in a guys hands (he was using little waght pvc and hair spray then he got the "brillitan" idea to fill it up from a cutting torch he had on his truck) luckly I was some dissent from him at the time but we (a couple of my dads freands) had to rush him to the ER with cunchs of PVC sticking out of him ... he lost a hand. so any who I dont like combustiables all that much but thought that H2 and O2 would be a powerfull mix.

H2 is a viable source for combustions as long as you make a good H2 generator. You will of course need a stronger construction material since hydrogen detonates instead of combusting does it not?

Wait, your afraid of hairspray in a combustion but you're ok with high-powered fuels like Hydrogen and pure Oxygen? That's kind of backwards, Hydrogen and Oxygen have a much higher chance of blowing up.

Look up fuel cells, they use the process you're talking about to make Hydrogen.

Before you mess with oxygen and hydrogen, I suggest that you learn how to spell properly. A poorly constructed post leads us to think that you are inexperienced.

Oooh! Ooooh! I know what he's gonna become!!!!!

He's gonna grow up to be one of those crazy people who remote fire ABS cannons filled with stoichiometric mixes of propane and oxygen.

Believe it or not, that's an entirely different hobby...
