Hey, Pyro here.
This is my first instructable so please be nice.
This device is basically a modified BBQ lighter that attaches to your finger. Also known as, the PyroGlove - 1.0
It goes without saying but just to be sure, this probably isn't completely safe. Also, this involves fire. It isn't my fault if you damage yourself, others around you or anything else. Now that's out the way, let's get started!
Step 1: Acquiring Materials
Step 2: Dissection
Step 3: Keep or Can
If you want the low down on these parts, carry on reading this step otherwise, go to step 4 and live a happy life.
Screws of Power! -
SCREWS! You can never have enough of them, so plonk them in your parts box for other projects, replacement screws for appliances or as a gift for that special someone.
The Gas Chamber/Tube -
These parts are practically the only parts we are going to use for the PyroGlove. The liquid fuel (butane or propane, whatever you find more alluring) is injected and kept in the gas chamber in it's liquid form. When the gas release button is pressed, the pressure inside the gas chamber forces the fuel out into the gas tube. When the fuel combines with air in the tube, it vaporizes into it's gaseous state. When the fuel is ignited, we see the warm glow of fire's warming glow.
The Peizo Electric Ignitor -
The Peizo Ignitor uses the Peizo effect to generate a high voltage current to two electrodes (more commonly known as the two wires on the end). This voltage is high enough to create a spark between the two electrodes if the gap is small enough. To learn more about the Piezoelectric Effect, click below:
Step 4: Bridging the Gap Between Flesh and Fire
Step 5: Time to Test
To fire the PyroGlove - 1.0, point at target, pull the Gas Release Button and hold a lighter just in front of your finger until the gas has lit.
Straight forward, huh?
Thanks for reading this Instructable. Enjoy making it and stay safe.
