Like any red-blooded, masculine man of the male gender, I love PVC weaponry. Youshould too. If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming$100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn’t appeal to you, you’re afrikkin' pansy. Also, you’re probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will. Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine. For those of you who laugh in the face of hypersonic shards of plastic puncturing your spleen, here’s an intimate look at how I’vekept myself busy for the past week: building a PVC flamethrower.If you're not interested in the building process, skip to the bottom of the post for the fire.My flamethrower has two main parts, a gun/hose assembly, and the tank. I made the gunfirst:It’s made entirely of parts you can get at your average hardware store. The hose connectsto a stop valve, which connects to a short pipe nipple that's tapped directly into the tank.
The tank took a while to make, because I let each set of chemical welds dry before doingthe next ones. The ends of the tank are two 90 deg. elbows and two 90 deg. street elbows,welded to make two full 180 deg. "U"s. One side of the tank is a 2' length of 4" sch.40PVC, the other is a 4"x4"x1.5" T with standard pipe attached to each 4” socket.Before assembling the parts, I drilled and threaded the two holes I needed in the tank ends: a 1/4" standard pipe hole for the outlet to the hose, and a 1/8" standard pipe hole for the valve that I would use to pressurize the tank. Interesting note: 1/4" and 1/8" pipeshave no actual relation to the measurements of distance commonly known as the quarter inch and eighth inch. The holes are actually 7/16" and 11/32" respectively. Hooray for non-metric measurements.
