-Glue gun ( + glue sticks haha :> )

    No problemo mon ami. Its a disposable camera, so one-way.

    thanks, and gg for your inventions!!

    Hi everybody! Eeh I'm kinda new here and I just wonder how do you watch the videos?

    Hi mate,

    finally you have a dedicated DIY channel. I have been following your other youtube channel for a few years now and really liked your projects so far.

    If I may I would suggest you go into more detail with the individual steps. The spark generator is definitaly an Instructable I will be looking forward to see.

    You got another follower here and my sub on youtube.

    Cheers Alex

    The shocker will get its own tutorial, dont worry :)

    Any idea how long it would take you to put together a short tutorial?

    When I have the time I guess.

    Yeah so you understand! I've been documenting my steps to make a ible and I'd be happy to link you in it

    Well I am working on a pair of wrist mounted flame throwers like the K Ton Palm Flamethrower to use with my Skyrim mages costume, but no one explains the ignition system which is what yours is perfect for!

    Yeah, I have made 2 palm flamethrowers also. Tricky stuff.

    Hi! I was wondering when the video on the modified camera stun gun would be out! I'd really like to make this integrated into my Halloween costume! Thanks

    Hey. I will make a video how to do that soon. But is it not too dangerous for Halloween? Whats your plan?

    I like the idea. I feel like I should know this but in your 3rd step you title it a video tutorial but there is no video or link to a video to play. Am I missing something? When I click on the picture I just get the picture in an album format. I would love to watch the video. thanks. looks cool.
