Introduction: Mini Torch

About: I'm a young inventor and entrepreneur. I build stuff and make art when I have spare time but my main priority is to do good in school. If you like me subscribe!

This is a small torch that I made on a rainy day. It can be made pretty easily with a few materials. I hope you enjoy!

I took these pictures with my new Ipod Touch™ 4th generation. It's pretty cool!

If you have any suggestions on how to improve this let me know.

Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for what you do with your mini torch. Please use it wisely.

Step 1: Materials

  • A steel rod 10'' to 13'' is a good length
  • Cone type thing (I got mine out of a fan I took apart)
  • Glue
  • Straw, grass, or a rag covered in something flammable (this will be the "light")



Step 2: Glue It Together

All you need to do is insert the point of the cone into the rod and glue it on.
You may want to put some glue in the rod before the cone goes in to make it more secure.

Optional: After your finished take a fine grit sand paper and sand down the excess glue.

Step 3: Put the Flammable Material Into the Cone

Stuff the flammable material into the cone and this step is done. Make sure it's not going to fall out and catch something on fire.

Step 4: It's Done!

Ok. Now your torch is done!

If you are asking yourself, "Why didn't he weld the two pieces together?". I tried that and the cone was literaly melted on the lowest welding temperature. Glue was the next best thing.

    well, im president of my schools Go Green club and every year right before/after break we have a "shovunda" which is a re-gifting party. The thing is, the day right before break we were supposed to have it on it snowed (not alot) but they cancelled all after-school activities and made us go home early. So then we rescheduled it but I forgot my camera, so im trying to get pics. So yea the instructable is on how to have a shovunda. Hbu?
