Introduction: The Lighter Gun

I realized this lighter gun just for fun.

2 september 2016 : I made a new PDF file named LG2.PDF for cutting wood parts. Dimensions seem correct if you print at 100% scale. Try it.

Step 1: What I Need

  • a lighter
  • plywood 12 and 5 mm thick
  • 2 wooden dowels 5 mm diameter 22 mm long
  • wire (from a clothes hanger)
  • 5 mm silicone tubing
  • any screws
  • jigsaw, drill, screwdriver, sandpaper, file, pliers, varnish or wax

Step 2: Preparation

    the PDF file give you the approximate dimensions.

    (Be careful, inspire you from the drawings but adapt the dimensions at your lighter. The drawings are not perfect)

  • print page 2 of the PDF, report the print to the plywood (I glue the paper on the wood before cutting)
  • cut wooden parts : front and back side (5mm), inner blocks and trigger (12mm), dowels ..
  • drill the holes
  • the trigger must be sanded or file to be a little thinner than 12mm, so it can move between the 2 faces
  • the small wooden rectangle is the guide for the wire
  • paint or wax the wood parts (not the faces wich will be glued) or paint it later

Step 3: Assembly

  • on the rear side glue the pieces called "inner blocks"
  • glue the small wooden rod (dowel 5mm) which prevents the lighter to go back when trigged
  • glue the second 5mm dowel on the trigger
  • put the trigger at his place
  • assembly the front side with screws
  • bend the metal wire by inspiring you from pictures
  • screw the metal wire on the trigger with the small spacer (5 mm silicone tube)
  • screw the small rectangle of wood that the wire guide

Note: what is glued is not removable
what is screwed can be disassembled and reassembled

Step 4: Finish

You know. I get sore hands at times and this would be great for myself and even others with arthritis.

Great job and thanks for this :)
