    Maybe a magnifying lens?

    Too tentative g. You are answering a question with a question. Too darn metaphysical. Be bold. Show me your magnifying glass making fire. I don't believe you even own one.

    I bet you haven't lit a fire in years. Moved away from your inner hominid did you? You are not dead yet. Fingers still depress the keys on the keyboard so there is hope.

    Thanks for the challenge. I've been meaning to collect all my magnifyers and take a pic of them together.

    Maybe I'll post a video of me burning something.

    Gadfree daniel, you do have some magnifying glass my friend. I will never doubt you again. You have 1/2 a beer coming. I'm jealous of the desk model with the light as I've always wanted one like it.

    I really appreciate the pic. Burn something for me. Thank you.

    I would really enjoy seeing a pic of the Blazer in action, flame on. I looked it up and it appears to be a serious torch capable of melting some metals.

    A pic would be terrific. My imagination tells me you have Zippo with a rainbow ti finish, no wait, a pinup maybe, no um, elegantly simple brushed finish perhaps.

    My father carried a Zippo. I can still hear the clink it made opening and closing. I wish I had it now to remind me of him.

    Dang it but I've been trying to open your link and cannot (dialup here, out in the sticks with the hicks and do I fit in). Are talking about the giant Tesla coil arc?

    Funny stuff. I was worried gas buildup problem in the atmosphere but didn't anticipate that it would go as far as to spontaneously combust cartoon folk. I'm driving less starting right now.

    Yeah, we are talking 8' sparks and standing quite close you often feel all the hair on your arms and head start to stand before you get the spark.

    The site is loaded with images so your dialup wont like it.

    I've actually lit the "strike anywhere" matches on my jeans by holding the match close to the business end and dragging it along the pants covering my upper leg. You need to quickly shift your grip when it ignites and somehow keep from breaking off the tip.

    Thanks for the pic.

    I thought we were guessing what happened to the .50 round, but I guess not.

    If it's fire you want, it's fire you'll get:

    WD-40 flamethrower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dyG_v32lus
    Survivor LED flamethrower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZG7ivJxPPk
    Minimag vs. newspaper: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GUDyOC41yw
    Minimag vs. match: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ewe_RcH_k_8
    LK12 vs. newspaper: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmJcGpvCYYc

    I'm working on a hotwire build that should provide similar results.

    I would really enjoy seeing your hotwire in action. Good luck with it. I've built 3 and each was a ball to piece together. Some of the best fun I've had via CPF.

    I've molten the core out of zinc pennies before. Takes a while. Not the hottest not the biggest heat transfer wise, but the most reliable

    I'll get a pic later on =]

    Excellent. Thank you kindly for the pics.

    Can't recognize Lincoln anymore.

    It puts out a beautiful flame. Very striking in the dark room.

    Is there a vendor you can recommend?

    My lovely wife blew up our last pressure cooker which was chock full of hot beets at the time. Fortunately, she had stepped out of the kitchen at just the right time and wasn't injured. It looked like a slaughter house with red mush everywhere.

    She has a sense of humor about it so I gave her this butane lighter disguised as a tiny pressure cooker. She doesn't want the real thing anymore.

    I actually burnt my finger tip while taking this photo for you. Fiddling with camera and a flaming pig's ass at the same time has its risks. But, thanks for the warning.

    This post begs for a photograph.

    A modern day Buffalo Bill. I would pay to see this done. You might consider getting your act together and taking it on the road.

    Actually, your finger tip is better than somethings you could burn!
