Introduction: K-TON Palm Flamethrower

Picture of K-TON Palm Flamethrower
This is a new version of a wrist mounted flamethrower I made this summer. It is similar some others  flamethrower seen on youtube but they all seem to have complex electrical systems. I wanted to do something much more simple. The gas flow control is entirely mechanical. The only electrical component is the ignition system powered with a single AA battery.

pk_raine (author)2013-06-24

I'd pay 80-100$ for one

16lundgcodm (author)2013-05-09

Sometimes you just have to let stupid flow, from your palms, on fire, and it becomes amazing.

budhaztm (author)2013-01-24

nice. You should do a step by step for this.

waleter (author)2013-01-15

I recently made a basic stick mounted flame thrower to use to light a bonfire I was put in charge of. I had three days to design and make it, and it went off without a hitch. I now have until July to try to make one of these to top what I did at the bonfire. Between now and then is another bonfire where I will have a better designed flamethrower, but I want to have a couple of wrist mounted ones to be to surprise everyone with a burst of flames from my hands to use to light the fire. Is there any chance you can help me out with a design for a wrist mounted like this? My main issue with designs so far come in with nozzles and fuel control. I'm asking around for help. Any thing you can to help would be much appreciated.

chemistrywiz (author)2012-04-13

could u please post the instructions on here or post them on a website of another

The Cartographer (author)2012-04-10

That is so cool.
You should make a device for the other hand that focuses on shooting fuel, so you could use your right for distance and aiming and the left to ignite it.

DiyAllDay (author)2012-03-26

How did you regulate the butane flow if its a valve whats it called? And also how do you keep the butane from condensing inside the tubes?

39otto (author)2012-03-19

Could you please post the blue prints or any kind of instructions, please.
Also its perfectly legal

Shiva Shastry (author)2012-03-14

how did you make the ignition system ?

willshubert (author)2012-03-12

hey i'm in the process of drawing blueprints for my own device and i wanted to also do a purely mechanical device, do you think you can email me on how the valve system works to regulate the gas i would really appreciate it.
thank you

dczupik (author)2012-03-11

Hey, i was wondering if you could tell me how to make a valve for a mini butane canister. im modifying a toy gun i have to be a flamethrower. i already have an idea for the ignition source, but im lost on how to actually release the gas strong enough to make a decent sized flame, your help would very appreciated,

tell us where to buy it I need it

adam97nguyen (author)2011-06-11

I think the best part about the entire system is that it doesn't look all mechanic and iron man that takes months of time to produce bravo great job

If you wouldn't mind I ask how much money would it cost to produce this system and how long

Valencio (author)adam97nguyen2011-06-16

Development Time: 1 month
Building (after the development): 2-3 hours
Cost: Definitely less than 60 bucks

a7n7d7y7 (author)Valencio2012-01-25

I love your device, where can i buy it?

adam97nguyen (author)Valencio2011-06-19

Thanks for the information I know that there are federal laws against this kind of thing so I'm pretty sure you won't be making a building instruction for a while and I am very interested in this cool gadget and would love to have one for the next fourth of July and was wondering if you could maybe on your own time possibly inbox the instruct able to me I would really appreciate it


kewlbanana (author)2012-01-19

Destruction increased to 26!

mettaurlover (author)2012-01-15

Only thing I'm wondering about is how to do the mechanical cutoff...

Matrix-technician (author)2011-12-12

Very cool! I'd be happy to send you a badge and feature an ible if you could get one up. :p

armor-guy (author)2011-12-03

please! please! please! make an instructable so we can make are own!

p.s.or at least tell us were to buy them.

Adum24 (author)2011-12-02

Hey quick question. Would you mind if i made my own and made an instructable? I wouldnt copy your design exactly, but at least try to make instructions others could follow, so they can make their own

mstyle183 (author)2011-04-14

wow thats insane!! i want one

Valencio (author)mstyle1832011-04-20

Thanks! I have been requested to sell them, I still don't know if I will, I don't even know if it is legal or if it can get through the customs.

xonar (author)Valencio2011-11-22

You can infact sell these legally. little known fact is that flamethrowers are not regulated by the federal government. And if there are no local prohibitions on them, they are perfectly legal.

sporgo (author)Valencio2011-11-18

What kind of valve are you using?

Spyhunter223 (author)Valencio2011-08-22

Just ship it in peices, if you can. I wouldnt mind buying one!

asingh9 (author)2011-11-10

when will you post the construction informatiom??

jrbobdobb (author)2011-11-08

1st, This is awesome and I need this for next years Burning Man.
2nd, the wrist control system, is it like the helium balloon fillers? it bends and opens or is it like an air compressor release, where it pulls a pin on a spring thingy?

ncowley (author)2011-11-01

how does the gas out put system wrist control work?

dczupik (author)2011-09-26

im pretty sure this is legal, flame throwers are still legal because i guess its the only thing we have to fight against... BEES! yeah, thats why they havent been out lawed i guess, but id check your local laws to be sure

lug big lug (author)dczupik2011-10-27

oh ya

fire_head (author)2011-08-28

Pleaaaaassseee....... specifically, what kind of ignitor did you use? where did you get it?

BuildIt6000 (author)2011-04-21
