what is the exat brand / exact model lighter

Sorry for the delay. I used a 'grill zone flexable lighter'

search in flipkart

Um... Can any see this instructable anymore? All I see is this is haw to make mini cannon... Then the download box (I'm not premium) then comments no directions

For my experiment, I have much larger objects that I am propelling instead of airsoft pellets, and I was wondering when you use the exact model of BBQ lighter, could you expand/ enlarge the size of the tube hole so it would be large enough to fit a marble? Thanks!

May I use this for an experiment I'm doing? I'm testing something, and I came across your video and think having a small, hand-held cannon would work best for my experiment.

Can we useperfume
