Propane torch Answered

I've considered several times buying a propane torch to burn weeds in my driveway, or melt ice. The one I'd like to have looks like a cane with a threaded connector on the handle end to attach a propane bottle. They all seem overpriced to me and I've always wondered if I could make one cheaper than I could buy one. I can find the tubing I need but I've never been able to find the rest of the parts.  Any suggestions or would someone like to post an instructable showing how to make one?

i have a propane oxygen torch which i have used on occassion as a propane-air torch. it tends to blow itself out unless fitted with a tin can to contain the air fuel mix. most torches and burners have a way to mix "primary" air, and "secondary " air. understanding design helps with improvising.
