Introduction: How to Make a Small Flaming Vortex of DOOM!
Thats right, of DOOM!
Step 1: Supplies
You will need;
Computer cooling fan (as big as possible)
square by rectangular box
twelve volt thingy
small alligator clips
motor oil (gas is too combustable)
wait... wrong list, ignore the last three
Step 2: Cut the Box
on the right side of each face of the box draw a rectangle really thin by really long (your box is probably differently sized than mine, for me it was 1/2 in by a foot)
you should use a wood spacer to make it a whole lot easier
on one side draw a rectangle semi wide by really long (for me it was 3 1/2 in by a foot)
in the center of the top draw a circle the size of the fans blades
cut out what you drew
Step 3: Finish the Box
duct tape the fan on top
put packaging tape on both sides of the big rectangular hole
Step 4: Rig the Power
attach alligator clips to the red and black fan leads
attach the red alligator clip to the top of the jack and the black to the bottom
Step 5: Vortex Time!
soak a wad of paper towel in motor oil but leave a corner unsoaked (I used penns oil)
put on plate and place in the box
light the unsoaked corner, and after the oil is burning turn on the fan
watch the awesome flames
don't leave the fan on for more than a minute or the blades will melt
We have a be nice policy.
