PVC Flamethrower

By Deane Barker on July 1, 2004

Homegrown PVC flamethrower: This is probably the granddaddy of bad ideas, but it’s very interesting nonetheless.

Warning: the site is questionable. Banners and text content may be NSFW, but just scroll quickly and you’ll be okay.



  1. A friend sent me that link this morning. Scary.

    I wonder if Homeland Security has paid this kid a visit yet. Or if he’s spending some time at a Shriners Burn Hospital.

  2. What does “NSFW” mean?

    There was some discussion of this on a mailing list I subscribe to yesterday. The gist of the conversation was that flamethrowers are dangerous enough (to the operator) with metal parts; making one from PVC is suicidal in the extreme.
