Fire Horn

firehorn

Artist [Ariel Schlesinger] has managed to replace an air horn‘s compressed air tank with butane fuel. This hack manages to change the pitch of the horn slightly, as well as making one very noisy flamethrower. While not as impressive as other flamethrowers, this would probably take the cake for most achievable. Currently the site containing the how-to is down, but we would have to recommend not doing this at home anyway. Video after the jump.

  1. Very lame. Still not as lame as the otehr post with file renaming utilities.

    Anyway, we can’t be always pleased. Keep up the good work.

  2. just lame imho
    I think everyone of us played with fire before and mostly made much more impressive fireplays
    sorry, but such “hacks” should immediately gtfo of hackaday

  3. This works better with a paintball gun. Run a pilot burner under the muzzle and make an adapter to connect a propane cylinder to the inlet. I didn’t originally try it for the flame, but just because propane is cheaper than having a 20 oz. CO2 cylinder refilled. I should look around and see if I still have the adapter and take some pics.

  4. Paint ball gun eh, So short explosive bursts of pure unadulterated pain. interesting khordas… works terrible but looks and sounds funny at least.

    Yea make a good impression at the home game there dave. “WIN or die, win or die.!”

  5. There’s geeks doing dangerously silly yet technically remarkable stuff. (You can recognize them by their advanced engineering skill to properly handle a camera.) Then there’s poorly executed, dangerously moronic stuff. Guess which one’s this.

  6. ragnar>i wonder how many of you crying for safety here got electrocuted, burned, cut and all the like doing stupid stuff.

    That’s how we know not to do them.

  7. You can make it lot better (without the horn of course) by uing an electronics cleaning spay with oli and directly use a lighter on the spay!

    OF COURSE IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! YOU PLAYING WITH THE FIRE!

    USING BUTTANE ON HORN IS THE BEST WAY TO GET INJURED SOON OR LATER!
