This particular homemade flamethrower is crafted to be as small as possible, which keeps your hands and arms free to throw flames while you use it! With an air compressor, a diesel nozzle, a fuel tank, some hose, and some fittings, you'll have a flamethrower capable of running off of tiki torch fuel.
Homemade Flamethrower Tutorial
Step 1: Air Compressor
Start with an air compressor. You'll want to remove the regulator of the machine and fill in the space left behind with a brass plug.
Step 2: Tap a Hole
Tap a hole in the bottom of the compressor to add fittings.
Step 3: Set Fitting
The fittings should be properly connected and make sure that there will be no leaks coming out.
Step 4: Run Hose From Valve
Run a hose from the valve and fit the end with an internal check valve.
Step 5: Connect Valve to Diesel
Connect the internal check valve to a diesel nozzle.
Step 6: Remove Spout and Add Pipe For Fuel
Remove the spout and add a pipe running down to a tip and hose as pictured. The tip and hose will run the fuel for your flame.
Step 7: Tap Hose To Tank
Run a hose with a nozzle to a fuel tank tapped with a valve and fitting like this. Fill up your tank with tiki torch fuel!
Add a valve along the hose to better regulate your fuel.
Step 8: Adjust and Test
Spark up and start throwing flames!
You can adjust with the nozzles on the hose. The whole rigging will fit neatly into a backpack.
