Introduction: Air Pump for Barbecue With Plastic Bottles

It's time for Reduce, Reuse and Recicle.

With this in mind, I will show you how to build a Blower to your next barbecue.

Every good barbecuer knows that a good blower helps to fire the coal.

All you need is:

- Two identical plastic bottles - cylindric models are the best.
- Scissors or a sharp knife to cut the bottles.

Step 1: Cuttin the Bottles

- Remove the bottom of the bottles. The objective is insert one bottle inside the other.

- Chose one of the bottles and make a cut from bottom to top, as shown at video.

- Inser the cut bottle inside the other.

- Remove one of the lid.

Step 2: Using the Blower

Your blower is done!

To use it, just hold the blower by the ends and make push and pull moviments with the two parts.
It will blow a lots of air at every move.

Step 3: How Does It Work?

Our blower acts like a pump, taking in air when you pull and expelling the air when you push it.
Exactly the same way when you fill your lungs with air and then blow the fire.
