Mini Prop Flamethrower

Do you want a personal flamethrower for melting snow, melting zombies, or home defence but dont want to spend $400 then this is for you.

Step 1: Gathering Materials

For the first step you will need to procure a fire extinguisher, a vehicle tire valve, some fuel, some sort of air pump, a drill with a 1/2 inch bit, and a file

Step 2: Prepping the Valve Hole

Next you must empty the canister of its pressure and contents then drill a 1/2 inch hole directly behind the nozzle and file the edge smooth

Step 3: Pressure Valve

For this step I recommend you tie a decent amount of string to the neck of the valve then feed the string in the top and through the hole you drilled then pull the sting and valve through the hole until the valve snaps into place

Step 4: Flame

Here you can get creative if you like but I used a strip of metal about 2 feet in length that I bent to my liking then I taped one end to the extinguisher and tied a rag to be soaked in fuel on the other end

Step 5: Fuel

For this step all you need to do is make a mix of 75% gasoline and 25% diesel and fill the canister half way (If you want to spice things up ad some Boric acid to turn the flame green)

Step 6: Compression

Now all you need to do is hook up your air compressor or air pump and fill until it sounds like it is getting full (If you want to test its stability first do this step before fuel and while empty or with water instead)
