how do blow torches work

Hi I need help see I have been on the internet for days looking for a diagram, or someone, that could tell me how a blow torch works. Like if there is pressurized air in it, as my friend tells me but he's not a very reliable source. So please if you know such information or have a diagram of it I would be very thankful.

a Blucky corpse

stage 1 ok, so i have begun.the Blucky i chose to work on is a bargain basement Blucky, literally. when i made the trek to the Spirit Store and Party City last October, i happened upon some marked down Bluckies. they were 10 bucks, and not guaranteed to not fall apart in the store, lol. so i got a buggy and picked up a couple of them. the cashier pointed out that they were defective, did i still want them? of course i did! 10 bucks instead of 12, for something that i'm going to probably screw up anyway...so the 1st order of business is to fix the defective joints. i decided to disassemble it, and fill the bones with spray foam insulation. then re-assemble. hoping this will meld the pieces together well, and add a little weight. nothing looks faker than a Blucky blowing in the wind!it is laid out on the counter at the shop. the customers kept giving me strange looks.. can't imagine why! so i figure the excess that is oozing out can easily be trimmed away. i do have a back-up plan in case the spray foam won't hold firmly enough. it involves hot glue. hopefully it won't come to that though... the panty hose i plan on applying next should bind things well.STAGE2so today i began stage 2 of the Blucky. cutting his arm and leg bones to more closely resemble an actual body. i used my Dremel, and a razor knife to trim them up. i made a HUGE mess, and had fun. i'm sure i didn't do such a great job on this, but it is my 1st time. STAGE3so today i tackled stage 3 of teh Blucky corpsefication, carving the skull and ribs.ummm. it is MUCH harder to do the ribs than the skull, let me tell you! the dremel tends to 'get away from you' on the long curves of teh ribs. my carpal tunnel didn't help matters any, either! it's kinda crappy looking in fact... i am rather disappointed with myself. luckily they wont all be visible after the pantyhose goes on! the teeth proved to be difficult too. Danny said it looked fine, though. i do have some pics somewhere...we went to Lowe's last night and got some carpet latex to coat it with. the girl in the flooring department thought we were crazy at first, then warmed up and was interested in our projects and plans. she wants us to bring some pics by in fact!here are some of the how-to's i'm using as inspiration:http://hauntforum.com/showthread.php?t=8659http://www.fulcrumsites.com/haunt/html/corpsification1.htmlhttp://skullandbone.com/tutorial_02.htmiam kinda mixing and matching techniques. i'll be using paper towels or toilet paper, pantyhose, cotton balls, great foam, maybe cheesecloth and various colors of stains/paints.the hair my Blucky will have is Grade A. i had my long hair cut off, and instead of donating it this time, i plan to utilize it. the hair dresser kept asking me if i was sure i wanted her to cut it, she said it was "beautiful and so healthy!" i imagine i'll have to distress it little so it will look like it belongs on a rotted corpse. LOL!!!!i'm wondering... does anyone ever put remnants of rotten clothing onto their Bluckies they corpsefy?STAGES 4 & 5ok. so i worked on Blucky today at work. first i taped up the arm and leg bones that i had cut out with the dremel. this is probably a useless step... but i think i was trying to stall actually getting going with the scary part- the latex.i used some masking tape i bought at wal mart in the paint department. then i applied the pantyhose. this part caused customers to stop what they were doing and come watch. Josh and I struggled with it until we got 1 set on the right way, and one set on upside down, covering the arms and head. we overlapped the torso with both sets.now came the scariest part. donning the gloves and applying the latex. it stinks! i put down a couple of trash bags and dove in... globbing and smearing until it was covered. i had to warn customers away from it, so Blucky wouldn't stick to them! one guy nearly bumped into it, just walking by. maybe i should have done this step in the back room, away from people. i hope he turns out ok... hair, stain and paint are the next steps, when he dries out. STAGE 6so i stained Blucky. i think i got a lil heavy handed with the stain... but he is my 1st ever, so it's all good! i bought MinWax mahogany gel stain and a large pack of cheap brushes (getting my Lowes connection price of course- dented can)i placed Blucky's feet into a large box. having stained my kitchen cabinets once, i expected a HUGE mess... but the gel is marvelous! NO DRIPS AT ALL!i did get a little splattered onto my left hand and forearm, but that is because i'm a slob, LOL.several customers wandered over to watch, and inquire about him... several seemed genuinely interested in our Halloween obsession! a couple of kids who were there were thrilled, and assured me he looked totally gross! only 1 customer questioned why we were working on Halloween in February. this is a far cry from last year when i was detailing the tombstones at the shop and had people looking at me as if i were crazy... maybe i'm rubbing off on them, or maybe they are used to my eccentrics by now, LOL!Josh and i left the shop at 6, and Danny stayed over a few minutes, (he's painting truck parts in the back room) he said when he walked back through the empty, half-lighted, locked shop he caught Blucky out of teh corner of his eye and it spooked him! a sure sign of a job well done! anyway, i suppose Stage 7 for Blucky will be eyes... or LED's. definitely an LED in the chest cavity. this will be up to Danny, as i don't do wiring (yet, lol) so the ball is in his court!my motto? the couple who haunts together, stays together!

Brake lights

So i have a '95 chevy suburban, and it has a few issues. at the moment, the biggest issue is my brake lights. Basically, when the vehicle is in accessory and i depress the brake peddle, my brake lights come on, YAY! but when i have the vehicle running and i depress the brake peddle, the 15 A fuse blows and the lights go out. now i have a schematic diagram for the whole vehicle (in parts), but im still trying having a hard time finding where my problem is. im sure there is a short somewhere but it is just all really confusing to me. thanks much in advance. note: night time lights work as well as all turn signals.

Non lethal poison blow darts???

Non lethal poison blow darts.? I was thinking about making blow darts then the topic struck me, could common natural non lethal poisons or toxins be used in blow darts. This sounds a bit vague, so heres and example: you take poison ivy leaves and either wipe the darts on the leaves or grind up the leaves then rub darts in the mix. Would this work, how effective would this be?. I am not planning on even attempting to try this, this is for informational purposes

Covering up computer vents?

My computer has these vents on the case that are blowing out cold air while my expansion slot vent is blowing out VERY hot air. I was thinking I could cover up the vents that are blowing out the cold air which is very cold so I could make the inside of my comp cold so my video card doesn't get as hot. Is this a good idea?

Fire blow darts?

Ive been trying forever to get some that work but I just can't! I made them out of paper and stuck match heads as the point struck them let them burn a little and try to shoot them but they go out before i can get them in pretty much they don't burn clean. I also tried hanging part of it out of the end and lighting it but that didn't work. I've tried many other things to. Any suggestions?

Seems it is possible to blow an amp

Well, apparently something is wrong with my sub amp, not the sub itself, at least it doesn't sound blown to me. But it definatly does sound different than last time I used it and there is a slight growling sound you can barely hear if you turn it up to a certain point, almost like the voice coil rubbing but a softer sound as I do know what that sounds like. Time to chuck the amp eh?

Oven blows up and no photos.

My wife was making potato wedges last night when in the middle of cooking the bottom burner catches fire and starts to sparkle like a party sparkler. I run for my camera and when I get back to the kitchen its over my wife turned off the stove and when I turned the stove back on nothing happens. Now that the fun part is over does anyone want me to do an Instructable on how to repair an oven element? The white marks are from the electrical fire.

Is it good idea to replace laptop's fan by fan of cooler pad ?

There are nasty fan inside of my laptop. The fan is loud and sound is nasty and works always (its such model of laptop), so I want to remove bottom of the laptop's corpus and may be top of the cooling pad and use the pad instead of internal cooler (which I will plug out). I have AMD. I think that it's may work because: fan inside laptop blows at radiator (which is on another end of copper pipe), not right at place where processors located. And I want big fan that will blow right at those part of cooling system where processors located. I'm not gonna remove copper pipe, just plug out default fan and use pad's instead so that it will blow at cooling system from the bottom. I'm gonna use pad with 220-250 mm fan. What do you think ?

Warning to anyone who does explossives

As a former pyrotechnician, I fell like I must war people how dangerouse this shit is. Black powder is a high explosive and can be detonated with a slight impact of a feather. Flash powder is EXTREMELY DANGEROUSE, IT CAN BE DETONATED WITH OUT SPECIFIC REASONS. AMMOUNIUM NITRATE Is also another highly unstable high explosive, it can be set of even if you drop it. Gasoline is a high EXPLOSIVE, it just takes a spark to detonate. That why they are use in cars! DON"T LISTEN WHAT THESE OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT GAS NOT BEING AN EXPLOSIVE, IT REALLY IS AN HIGH EXPLOSIVE, I know this because I'm an pyrotecnic. Molotov cocktails are often used in the army, they canblow up holw rooms, and if the fire on the rage hits the inside of the jar youre dead. Sparklers are another high explosive, thats why they are illigal, they can detonate and blow your whole arm off. M-80 can blow up for no specific reason, the gun powder(AKA BLACK POWDER) is extremely unstable. Match heads are also as unstable as gunpowder, it can even ignite under it's own weight. Nitrogen triiodide is also unstable. Thermite can detonate with a powerful heat and force but it can only be detonated with magnesium. Pottasium nitrate can even blow up if you just leave it there. SO, DO NOT BE DOING THESE FIREWORKS!

need help with capacitor charger

I am new to this so please excuse my stupidity. I want to make a capacitor charger (for a small coil gun) I know there are instructables about them but they are all with chargers that came from a camera which I really don't want to do because i would like to make my own circuit that i can play around with and not blow it up by accident. If someone has a link to a project like this please post if not i have another question. Could I just take let's say a camera that has an 80uF 330v cap and switch it with a parallel bank that has 5 or more 220uF 25v caps or something larger. Would that work or would that blow the circuit or would it be better to buy the same caps as the camera and hook them together. Thanks
