A friend told me that flamethrowers are still legal.
Can that be true.
And how many US parts must you have?

See the prudential real estate sign in the yard next door? Looks like the neighbor is movin' out. I wonder why?

Be carful playing with PVC pipe. Wife took care of a guy that made a potato gun. Seems he got the charge wrong and blew both his arms off. He died a few days later.

Idiot...enough said.
Not for building or playing with such a toy, rather for doing it in the middle of a neighborhood.
I could care less if he was out in the middle of a bean field and blew himself up, but endangering others is BS.
What a crazy SOB.
I have a feeling that nature will be weeding out the stupid quite soon.

Yes, flame throwers are legal.

This kid's creation has "hey, hold mu beer" written all over it. Apparently a bunch of the folks over at Something Awful are going to start building their own after seeing this guy. Perhaps a cool idea if the world was coming to an end anyway and you wanted to make a gigantic political statement on the way out, but not something I would want to build as long as Dairy Queen is still serving blizzards and I can get 99 cent Double stacks with Cheese at Wendys. I'm too handsome to spend the rest of my life in a burn ward.

He used denatured alcohol because according to him the petrochemicals ate PVC. Neat idea if done in steel.

Read the responses. All the other 18 year old morons chimed in to kiss his butt and see how many variations of F-word based explitives they can collectively develop.

I have a vision of the Air-Life helicopter landing in his cul-de-sac after the hose lets go and coats him in a yummy mixture of melting clothing/skin/PVC and burning alcohol

I agree with 19kilo...its called culling the herd.

I have visions of him burning the neighbors house or hurting someone else. Seems like these slackjawed inbreds always make it unscathed.

since the cat appears to be outa the bag, i will let out that i rolled one of these smokes monday night, in steel and fuel injection hose. it will be in action tonight at the mason dixon shoot on foggy mountain.

i started with a pair of stainless steel high pressure fire extinguishers that were out in the barn, and a magnesium backpacking frame. added some 180 psi fuel injection hose, high pressure clamps, a panel frame made of 3/16" box wire, a gun made from 3/8" std pipe and a few leftover amd65 pistol grips, steel and brass fittings galore, a pair of brass ball valves, some black duplicolor #1634 and ty-wraps to match, a propane gas pilot, and,
"voila, lafayette".

the wet run monday night with water under 120 psi got me about 100 feet of stream. i am thinking about looking for a smaller nozzle (currently 1/4" hose barb), so i may bring a variety of sizes to the shoot. have been in canada since then, and didn't get back till late last night, so i'm really a little in the dark on the performance characteristics of this baby, but i should be able to illuminate the question this weekend (pun intended).

thinking K1, because that's what i have handy. anybody up there got any deisel and pj?. only worry is the o rings in the water tanks, but i will be carrying a 45 in case things go really badly. wish me luck, and look in the after action report of the mason/dixon shoot thread on monday for a pix or so of

"death wish, part two".

If I remember correctly the young'n added a back-flow stop valve to the rig, so this kid ain't all that dumb. Ans he used denatured Alcohol, which as far I know won't eat PVC piping.
Still not the brightest thing to do but, maybe if I got some Ti. tubing from work???????????

well, friday i was hot as the sun. the K1 i had in the garage gave it a flame. just like the real thing. leftovers were shot friday night on the mountain, and fresh fuel was drawn from the local station saturday morning.

there-in lie the problem. the local fuel was colored pink, and wouldn't lite-off on the pilot. no other fuel within 15 miles, so i shot a more ordinary selection of firearms. more r&d is in order, and efforts will be directed at increasing and stabilising the pilot, so that this baby will go with a mix as crude as waste oil.

deltaten has pix from friday night at o'dark-thirty of a flame-off in progress. maybe he will be so kind as to post them.

thanks for the eulogy, oh poet laureate. i am sending it to the stone cutters a pronto.

actually, it never occured to me. backflow preventers are for acetylene torches and shit-pipe. i just shut it down before the pressure gets too low. working with low volatile fuels, it shouldn't be a problem, and don't think a plumbing valve would work in a bad moment, anyway. looking to get the pilot hot enough to run waste oil.

cripes, this thing goes 60 pounds with 5 gal aboard, already...

problem solved by removing the torch tip from the propane line (wish i'd thought of this last saturday), and allowing an unimpeded feather of flame that runs about 24", and lights off the pink stuff just fine. the propane bottle ices, and will soon be empty, but propane is cheap, and the flame lights up the night. was running it thursday night in the front 40, and the local fish and game went by. i could read the sign on the door and see the horror in their faces by the light of the burn.

WTH

All I can say is what the heck are you thinking? Flame throwers may be legal but that does not necessarilly mean you need to have or use one. Have you been trained in proper use of a flame thrower as well as what to do if the flame decides to go in the wrong direction. Please tell me you atleast have a fire extinguisher nearby. I don't want to seem like a an a$$ but I have heard too many horror stories that result from people playing with fire.

I will also say this, be careful with the legalities if you do really know what you are doing. I say this because a lot of towns and counties have ordinaces against the use of such items. I know the town I live in specifically has outlawed the use of not only flame throwers but potato guns/cannons (except when approved for research) too. This may result from the fact that I live in a college town but I also know the county fire marshall is extemely strict.

Just my 0.02

pennsylvania statute outlaws molotov cocktails, but does not address devices like this.

as for training, i am in the process of getting some (in the front pasture).

go back to kollidge, we know the real truth is there.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

I don't want to seem like a an a$$ but I have heard too many horror stories that result from people playing with fire.
Shucks yeah he has a fire extinguisher handy. In fact, he has two of them right there on his back.

Want? Need? Do you live in a sod hut eating boiled field corn and cattail sprouts? Or do you have a lot of stuff that you don't really need but want? I ride a bike without a helmet. Not only is it kind of risky, but I don't even need that Harley. The risky stuff always seems to be the most fun for some reason. Some folks are just of a different mindset I guess. He's a little crazy I reckon. Not right or wrong, justadifferent.

Bringing this thread back from the great beyond.

I got to see JAS's flamethrower up close, but not in action. The thing looks doable, a very cool gizmo.
I still can't believe it's legal in PA, but it is. Nothing in the statutes about a flamethrower. We can't let this secret get out tho. Fast Eddie will run with this and push a ban on all things that shoot flame.

This is *just* the thing for lighting those recalcitrant bonfires at Dirty Mary's winter shoots Or any other time, for that matter!

If it only didn't take so much room to pack in the Chrysler

Best,
Paul
