What does a used can of soup, old PC speaker, and propane equal ? A "Pyro Jam Can" of course! Inspired by a Rubens tube that I built the "Pyro Jam Can" is flame spitting candle that likes to jam to the rhythm of the beat. Finished eating your soup and ready get building? Lets light this can so you can jam out!
!!!!!!!!!WORD OF CAUTION!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU BUILD THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. BE SAFE. KEEP A FIRE EXTINGUISHER NEAR BY. HAVE A FRIEND NEAR BY TO ASSIST IF THINGS GET OUT OF CONTROL. ONLY USE IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA WITH NOTHING CLOSE BY.
BE SURE TO TRIPLE CHECK FOR ANY LEAKS. NOT CHECKING FOR LEAKS COULD CAUSE A GAS POCKET THAT WILL IGNITE! TURN GAS OFF IMMEDIATELY IF FLAME BURNS OUT AND WAIT FOR ROOM TO CLEAR OUT BEFORE REIGNITING.
OK, now on to the build ;-)
Step 1: Materials
- PC Speaker with built in amplifier
- Scrap wood, I used 3/4" plywood cut down to 5" squares x 2
- Propane Tank
- Propane regular hose
- 3/8" Plastic tubing
- 3/8" OD PTC x 3/8" flare adapter (used to attach to regulator hose)
- 3/8" x 1/4" Hose barb
- 3/8" male NPT x to 3/8" OD PTC
- Misc Bolts
- Wood Glue
- Helium rated balloon
- Primer and paint
- All weather caulk/silicone.
Step 2: Building the speaker box
- Cut your plywood to be about 1/2" or so bigger then the diameter of the size can your using. Cut two pieces.
- Cut out the center equal to a little more then the diameter of the can.
- Cut the other pieces center out just a little smaller then the diameter of the speaker your using.
- Drill a hole in each corner of the speaker piece so we can attach stand offs so the speaker doesn't bottom out.
- Attach the bolts and glue the can piece on top of the speaker piece.
- Sand for a smooth finish.
- Tape off bolts using masking tape.
- Primer with latex primer.
- Spray paint red or whatever color you want.
