No, for tattoos you would use a rasp.

Although, someone as manly as yourself, ygmir, might just use a hot iron.

I went to home depot and got parts and paint this afternoon.
Amazingly, I bought only one or two
useless items that I didn't really need.

Rustoleum has a kick-ass powder pink gloss spray paint.
It makes me want to go paint things that aren't mine :).

With that paint, Project HellAKitty limps off the line.

Image
The starting point is a foam rubber movie prop gun.
Ebay, $30, 1997. Nice detail but really chewed up.


Image
This shade of pink will be the base color.
For contrast detail I got some white but should
have grabbed some darker pink too.
I still gotta find some quality
decals or learn how to paint.


Is the green painters tape (gecko?) really better
than the blue masking tape?

I decided to make another fire poofer using only home depot parts.
Most folks have one or something like it nearby.
They had everything I needed except an accumulator.
Of course you could buy one of the exchange cylinders...

Total cost: $76.01
That includes $20 for an ice maker install kit for
the 15ft of 1/4" copper tubing to make the pilot.
It seems they no longer carry bulk Cu tubing @ my HD.
You could save $10 - $15 by going to a hardware store
and buying 6-8 feet.
I have SS 1/4" tubing in the shop but wanted to
do a solid HD only parts build as much as possible.

This is for a manually actuated ball valve type.
I prefer solenoid valves and so should you.
Or perhaps a quick-opening, self-closing globe valve,
AKA 'whistle valve'.


Image

Overall view of parts laid out ready for assembly.
Disregard the middle ball valve.
That's for shutoff when using a solenoid valve which
this one will have after testing to see how it works
as a manual piece.


Image

Closeup of the manifold.
Again, omit the valve at the bottom of the pic
if you're not running a solenoid valve.
When using a solenoid, omit the top ball valve and
install your solenoid valve in place of it.


Image

The assembled poofer. With a three foot stack this is
going to be a sit-downer, unless you have no need for hair.
A four foot section would be much better.
When you install a solenoid valve it won't matter.
You ARE going to install a SV, right?


Image

Closeup of the assembled manifold.
I'm not too crazy about Watts brand compression fittings.
If you can afford it, go with Swagelok, Cajon, Colder, Sno-trik,
Or other industrial compression fittings.
Expensive? Yes. Ultra reliable? Definitely.
Look for em on ebay.

All of the usual disclaimers apply:
Don't start a fire any larger than you think might
attract undue attention.

Offer burn gel to victims after extinguishing them (common courtesy).

Check that your fire insurance premiums are paid up BEFORE
setting the house on fire. Collecting will be more difficult
without a valid policy.

When using inside your home, turn the ceiling fan on first.
This should confuse the flames and prevent a house fire.

Don't listen to 'Safety Fakers'.
They are jealous of you and have extremely tiny penises.
We're talking hung like a fruit bat here, folks...

You probably shouldn't even consider building this.
I'd suggest closing your browser.
Then burn your computer.

I have a Hitachi Li-ION impact wrench and a hammer drill.
I'm going to be bringing them.
You may fondle them if you wish.

Hey, I'm hung like a fruit bat myself.
Maybe closer to a field mouse.

Touche Fishy. Touche. :)

I've been thinking about scaling down in size
to make them a little more portable. More mobile...
A mini-poofer.
I converted two old Manchester Power Jet 'Fires of Hell' limited
edition weed burners with combo whistle valve and adjustable pilot.
They're all 1/4"NPT.
To convert I removed the orifices from the main tubes.
And that was it. They're the shorter straight tubes.
Made up a 1L accumulator system and ran the other
straight from the tank. Couldn't tell the difference.

When testing tonight my neighbor down below
came out on his porch and lit some roman candles. Love that guy.

Image
The accumulator tank.


Image
I may mount two of these tanks on a packframe with three 1lb cans.


Image


Image


Image

They're louder than the 1/2"NPT.
Gonna hafta make a 1/8"NPT micro-poofer.

No, they are not.

Home dpot does not carry sch 80 in any size.

Yggy, you should go to NAPA and buy compression brake fittings instead of using that ice machine crap.

we already know he does not plan on using this stuff at BM...right YGGY?

will have to meet with foxfur and give him a bit of "training" about what might pass inspection..

sure it works, but is it safe?(enough)

read the flame effect guidelines on bm website...sch 80 pipe.. flare fittings vs compression, etc.

What he built will work on playa(except for that white tape), but he needs to add a regulator into the mix to make it pass.

I for got to say Great work everyone!

ygmir, awesome work, but WHAT are you trying to keep out with that door. I'm afraid.

Firefox, you're on the right track, but needs a few adjustments, feel free to PM me and we'll talk about it. But most importantly if you plan on using it on the Playa it NEEDS to be sch 80 or turn down the pressure via a regulator (who wants to do that?). And either way you MUST use yellow gas rated tape, not the white kind, good catch OED.

Between espresso dude, OED, and I ,surely you'll be getting some great hard learned tips. Although you might watch out if OED tells you "its just the tip"
