    QUESTION: what Brands/types of lighter are useable for this?

    This is awesome! great instructible!

    I seem to recall that cheap lighter contents are liquefied-under-pressure, pretty important for it to be very empty when you crack it open.

    oh no no..not the original author, but the original instructions were published in Chinese, and i translated them to English and post it for English-speaking users..Am i violating anything? I aint really sure about these things..haha

    Technically, you are violating copyright, unless you actively sought and received permission to use these images.

    Ideally, it is expected that members post projects that they have actually made themselves, using images they have created themselves.

    Sometimes original images are not possible or appropriate, but in this case they are.

    I recommend you follow these instructions yourself, taking photos as you go, and then replacing the copied images with your own versions, and your own description of the Make (which would include different approaches you took to the plan), along with a link back to the inspiring original.

    That would then become a genuinely awesome first project, rather than a somewhat disappointing copy.

    Might be best you link to his blog/post entry to credit him and would be nice to let him/her know.
    think he wouldent mind just a translation as long original author is credited.

    either way , nice to know ! but don't play with fire !

    PS. add some general safety instructions like only use empty lighters and be carefull with fire. seems obvious but sometimes we can just forget.
