Introduction: HHO (Browns Gas) Generator/Torch
Have you ever wished you had a torch with a limitless fuel supply? Have you ever wanted to harness the raw power of hydrogen? Well here it is! The possabilities with this are truly endless. Now time to start building.
Caution: This machine is what some people might call "unsafe" but thats not for them to decide, I encourage you to build this truly great machine.
Step 1: Materials
• 20, Stainless Steel 1/4" Nuts
• 4, Nylon Bolts
• 12, Nylon Washers
• 6ft. of Flat Stainless Steel 1-1/2" wide
• Copper Wire
• A good length of Poly Tubing
• A 4" ABS Coupling
• 2, 4" ABS Male Plugs
• Super Glue
• 2, 3/8" Stainless Steel Bolts
• 2, 4" ABS Clean Out Adapters
• A 2" ABS Pipe
• 2, 2" ABS Cap
• Ball Pump Tip or Propane Torch Head
• Wire Strippers
• Angle Grinder (Or some way of cutting the steel)
• A 6-pack of BudLight to give ya that extra kick an motivation!
Step 2: Creating the Fuel Cell
Take the 4" Clean Out Adapters and put super glue all around the part that slides into the Coupling. Then slide the Adapters into the Coupling completely. Screw one of the 4" Male Plugs into the Clean Out Adapter. Take the other Plug and drill a 1/4" hole in the center of it. Drill two 3/8" holes on each side of the Plug. Drive the two 3/8" Stainless Steel Bolts into each side hole. Take the Poly Tubing and shove it into the 1/4" hole and screw the finished Plug into the other Clean Out Adapter. Thats that, The Fuel Cell is done.
Step 3: Creating the Generator
Take your lengths of Steel and cut them into about 5" pieces. You should have 14 of these pieces.Take a 1/4" Drillbit an drill two holes in each piece. Try and make the holes line up best as possible. Then take your Nylon Bolts and slide one plate over the bolts. From there on they go in the pattern of Nylon Washer, Plate, Steel Nut, Plate. In my case I made two small ones which works quite well but make sure the two DO NOT touch if you choose my route.
Step 4: Creating the Bubbler
Take your 2" Pipe along with your 2" Cap an put them together. Drill a 1/4" hole in each cap. Superglue one of the caps on to the pipe. Bubblers done.
Step 5: Putting It All Together
Take your Copper Wire and wrap one end around one of your Bolts and wrap threw one of the holes on the Plates the repeat with other bolts and plate. Slide the Generator into the Fuel Cell and screw the Plug on tight. Open the bottom Plug and fill the Fuel Cell with Water and an electrolyte (Salt, Caustic Soda, Etc.) Run Poly Tubing from the hole in the top of Fuel Cell to the end of the Bubbler that has been glued. Then run a tube out of the top end of the Bubbler. Hook a car battery up to the two bolts with jumper cables and your done, The end Poly Tube should now be pumping out the gas.
Step 6: Your Done!
Thats all there is to it. Your done and its time to start enjoying your new possibilities. Please comment if youve made one but diffrently, Id really like to hear how it goes.

I would caution that you are going to possibly get hurt if you don't insert a one way check valve into the end of your fuel hose to prevent flashbacks ....
