Words fail me for how dangerously cool this is.

This guy made a flamethrower from scratch using PVC, valving, a blowtorch, and denatured alcohol.

Highlights include pictures of himself shooting streams of flame across his cul-de-sac.

I would not recommend trying this yourself.

So it's a $100 super soaker. That's cool. Enticing pictures.

I'd make it and try it out, but I'd be arrested by our friendly neighborhood police before I could say "BURNAGE!". but that looks fucking AWESOME.

At first I though this topic was going to be some retard asking how to make a homemade flamethrower. I didn't even think it was possible. O_o
That is amazing. I'd try it, but in the area I'm living it, if it touched anything it'd set off a 50,000 acre wildfire. :)

How friendly. :)

Yes, I too wish to build a smaller version, but regrettably there is a local campfire ban, deeming such a tool useless, save for intimidation and cooking small meals.

Hehe seeing as Alex said "hot", I have to make reference to a certain person's sister he so avidly pointed out... hehe... Sorry Alex. Can't forget that wonderful, oh so wonderful moment.

Anyways, cooking squirrels... sounds good! My friend needs me to kill some squirrels, so I can roast them, put them on a stick, and go to one of those crappy carnivals and sell them. They sell everything on a stick, so it wouldn't be weird.

Heh, I could do something like that, likely a couple times more impressive that what he did. His design was poor, he wasn't getting enough output. He only used 85 psi too, too low for such a weapon.

I have a couple videos of people using converted Super Soakers as flamethrowers. The problem is that I need to find them, I forget the URLs and the videos aren't on this machine. Really cool, don't try this at home kind of stuff.
