DIY HHO Torch (Water Torch) for Only $4





Introduction: DIY HHO Torch (Water Torch) for Only $4


In this Instructable I will show you how to make a simple, cheap and effective HHO torch that can melt small pieces of metals like tin cans. This can be used in various applications it can be connected into your fire torch or in your car which is also known as the HHO Hybrid Generator which can reduce your fuel consumption although I don’t have a car I am still a 12 years old boy.


A lot of people are asking what and how does a HHO Torch/Generator works. It is simple a HHO torch/Generator separates water molecules into gas, now you will have a mixture of Oxygen and Hydrogen gas which can give a powerful kick or flame.


- You can connect this in a fire torch pin which I will show you how to make.
- You can use this for your car to reduce fuel consumption. But this will not be mentioned for this Instructable, it would be better of you Google it.
- You can use this to weld o melt thin metals

Warning: It is not my responsibility if any of you gets injured or burned so don't blame me for your mistake. Luckily I made some safety features which are already tested and prevents some common problems with HHO converter like explosions and implosions which creates cracks or even explosions. Hydrogen are highly explosive especially of you mix it with Oxygen. Batteries not included.

Be sure to rate this a 5 star. This instructions are very rare and hard to find.

Step 1: Materials

You Will Need:

- Vinyl Tubing/Fish Tank Tube 2m (50c)
- Air Tight Container x2 ($1) 
- Fish Tank Tube Connectors x3 (30c)
- Stainless Steel Plates x12 ($2)
- Wire 1m (20c)
- 12 Volts Battery (revised)
- Inflation Pin (10c)

Step 2: Cutting the Metal Sheet X12

Cut the metal sheets into 12 pieces. The measure should be a 2x4 inch rectangular sheet. Then cut a line above leaving a small metal for the wire to be connected.

Step 3: Stacking the Metal Plates

Stack the metal plates with a 1 cm styrofoam on each sides and one in the middle, use a hot glue gun for bonding the metal plates and the styrofoam. Then connect the the metal terminals with Magnet/Copper wire.

Step 4: Installing the HHO Converter Plates

Place the HHO Converter in the air tight container. Then make a hole for the wire and be sure to seal it with a hot glue gun.

Step 5: Adding a Tube Connector for the Air Tight Container

Make a hole for the tube connector. Then glue the tube connector.

Step 6: Making the Bubbler (with Saftey Feature)

Get a jar then make two small holes for the tube connectors. Seal the tube connectors with a hot glue gun and be sure to connect a tube for the inlet. Then make a rectangular hole and seal it with a cling wrap with hot glue.

Safety Feature: The cling wrap serves as a safety cap. Most bubblers explodes when implosion occurs. This prevents this from exploding.

Step 7: Making the Torch Pin

Get a inflation pi then connect a tube connector, then seal it with a hot glue gun or use epoxy for better results. After that connect all the tubes to is proper connection.

Step 8: Your Done!

Your Done! You may want to add a switch to the battery.

    Cool project, well written and documented. I've had a build for one of these on the agenda for a while, because nobody answers any questions about them.

    Compared to a normal torch how would the flame be, in terms of heat and gas flow?

    This type of torch should produce 5000-6000 F

    little bit late, aint it?

    Nice ibble'! I really wanna try it but in Singapore, 12 year old boys like me aren't often seen cutting steel and making a torch...

    well now that you're 18, I hope you give it a try :)

    PS: The clingwrap pressure valve was ingenius!

    AWESOME! This is a very good Instructable! Thanks, I will try to do it!
