Introduction: DIY HHO Torch (Water Torch) for Only $4

About: Hi I'm Angelo (TechBulder)! I am an engineering major in BS-ECE at the DLSU. I use my course as an inspiration for making my current projects! I've been posting projects here ever since I was 10. I also run a …

Introduction:

In this Instructable I will show you how to make a simple, cheap and effective HHO torch that can melt small pieces of metals like tin cans. This can be used in various applications it can be connected into your fire torch or in your car which is also known as the HHO Hybrid Generator which can reduce your fuel consumption although I don’t have a car I am still a 12 years old boy.

Definition:

A lot of people are asking what and how does a HHO Torch/Generator works. It is simple a HHO torch/Generator separates water molecules into gas, now you will have a mixture of Oxygen and Hydrogen gas which can give a powerful kick or flame.

Use:

- You can connect this in a fire torch pin which I will show you how to make.
- You can use this for your car to reduce fuel consumption. But this will not be mentioned for this Instructable, it would be better of you Google it.
- You can use this to weld o melt thin metals

Warning: It is not my responsibility if any of you gets injured or burned so don't blame me for your mistake. Luckily I made some safety features which are already tested and prevents some common problems with HHO converter like explosions and implosions which creates cracks or even explosions. Hydrogen are highly explosive especially of you mix it with Oxygen. Batteries not included.

Be sure to rate this a 5 star. This instructions are very rare and hard to find.

Step 1: Materials

You Will Need:

- Vinyl Tubing/Fish Tank Tube 2m (50c)
- Air Tight Container x2 ($1) 
- Fish Tank Tube Connectors x3 (30c)
- Stainless Steel Plates x12 ($2)
- Wire 1m (20c)
- 12 Volts Battery (revised)
- Inflation Pin (10c)

Step 2: Cutting the Metal Sheet X12

Cut the metal sheets into 12 pieces. The measure should be a 2x4 inch rectangular sheet. Then cut a line above leaving a small metal for the wire to be connected.

Step 3: Stacking the Metal Plates

Stack the metal plates with a 1 cm styrofoam on each sides and one in the middle, use a hot glue gun for bonding the metal plates and the styrofoam. Then connect the the metal terminals with Magnet/Copper wire.

Step 4: Installing the HHO Converter Plates

Place the HHO Converter in the air tight container. Then make a hole for the wire and be sure to seal it with a hot glue gun.

Step 5: Adding a Tube Connector for the Air Tight Container

Make a hole for the tube connector. Then glue the tube connector.

Step 6: Making the Bubbler (with Saftey Feature)

Get a jar then make two small holes for the tube connectors. Seal the tube connectors with a hot glue gun and be sure to connect a tube for the inlet. Then make a rectangular hole and seal it with a cling wrap with hot glue.

Safety Feature: The cling wrap serves as a safety cap. Most bubblers explodes when implosion occurs. This prevents this from exploding.

Step 7: Making the Torch Pin

Get a inflation pi then connect a tube connector, then seal it with a hot glue gun or use epoxy for better results. After that connect all the tubes to is proper connection.

Step 8: Your Done!

Your Done! You may want to add a switch to the battery.

    Cool project, well written and documented. I've had a build for one of these on the agenda for a while, because nobody answers any questions about them.

    Compared to a normal torch how would the flame be, in terms of heat and gas flow?

    there are not many instructions because hydrogen is a very dangerous explosive. you better research it a little more before you try the way these instruction tell you to put this together because this is not a safe instruction. it will work but you better put in an inline check valve for your own safety. that is the only thing he left out. but that is enough.

    This type of torch should produce 5000-6000 F

    Nice ibble'! I really wanna try it but in Singapore, 12 year old boys like me aren't often seen cutting steel and making a torch...

    PS: The clingwrap pressure valve was ingenius!

    Adding a flashback arrestor will enhance its safety,otherwise a good upload!

    omg no spark arrestor? one way check valve? people out there PLEASE becareful safty first.,,< blast gogles> check! 911 on speed dial check! and a bag big enughf to pick up your body parts when you make that one easy mistake. take it from a dummie like me 11-24-2020 was my Bday. guess how that day went doesnt take a hydrogen scientist to figure this one out.bubbler blew up in my face. no eye protection /sheld/ so i had melted plastic in my eye under the eye lid no one around to take me to the hospital some people say i was looking to close at it. lol...but not funny it could happen to the best of us. 4 months i been researching HHO gas set up ect. get a set up that dont blow up . spark arrestors most important...dont make one unless you absolutely know what your doing go out and buy your self one please! i just dont want anyone to go through what i went through. isotopes of hydrogen combine under extremely high temperatures to form nah! its not that bad but its bad! not a thermonuclear wepon but you sure would think so if it blows up in your face! so b careful!

    OK. I have a question. It says to use 12 plates, yet you have 14 plates. Why is that? Thanks.

    u can use 2 or 6 or 1200 it does not matter , the more the better.. u need 1 plate for positive and 1 plate for negative = 2 plates ( stainless steel)

    Also add the neutral plates to increase efficiency when using anything more than 2-3v

    Everyone and author if you are using stainless steel to make the plates,
    The water will get dirty with a grey colour this is hexa-valent chromium carcinogenic and nasty stuff I was 14 when I made my own and didn't touch anything without gloves.
    Also you should add neutral plates to increase efficiency when using anything more than 2-3v as most energy will be wasted and water starts getting warm at 12v you should add 4 neutral plates between each anode and cathode to get a voltage of 2.4 v between each plate sounds crazy but tested method almost doubles hho production

    someone should have made a post sooner about this but i just now ran into it. i hope no one has been hurt from this project.
