    Ok. It worked.....BUT, when I aimed it out my gate, and ignited it, this Old decreped voice blurted "Oh, dear god!". It was one of the Old bags on my HOA. She threatened to call the cops on me, and I told her it was just an accident. I explaned that I had an open fuel container, and when my air compressor turned on, the motor ignited the fumes. SHE BOUGHT IT. Anyway.......I may try again tomarrow, I'll just have to make sure "the coast is clear".

    Now. On to the construction of this, so you too, can make one your self! :D
    I used a hard plastic 3/8" tubing for a mister system. 1 "T" for a mister system. 1 small waater baloon. Air compressor with 120 regulated psi. And 1 Cheapo lighter for ignition.
    I filled the water baloon with about 4oz. of 87 octain gasoline and pinched it off with a "C" clamp, and set it aside. I cut the tubing into 3 pieces. 1 6" piece, 1 3" piece, and 1 2' piece. I connected the 6" piece to my high pressure air nozzel, connected a "T" fitting to the end. Then connected the 2' piece of tubing going tward the front, and the 3" piece on the top of the "T". I pressurized the water baloon of gasoline, and attached it to the top of the "T". I mounted it to the Top, so the pressurized fuel would be sure to feed into the "Flame thrower barrel". I then taped the lighter to the "ON" position, and lit it with another lighter. as it was burning, I pinched off the water baloon-O-fuel, and removed the "C" clamp. At this point I was laughing my ASS off. I then aimed at the lighter that was burning, released the fuel into the Flame Thrower (un pinched the baloon), and hit the air!

    pppppPPPPPSSSSSSSSSFOOOOM!!!

    It was then that I heard the "Oh, dear god!" cry. :D
