Looks like they just opened the valve and torched it off.....
I think there may be some danger to this proceedure but perhaps not as much as i imagined.....(i guess one could close the valve fast enough so the
fire didnt get back inside the tank, or simply let her burn out...).
You could have several at the ready......or even spray cans of paint or a spray gun with real portable air a pipe for a barrel and bic for ignition
after depressing the nozzle
Another idea that hits me now that my train of thought is on improvised munitions,
How about some acetyline bombs where you pour water over carbide and let the acetyline build up then lite the fuse and throw....?
I remember the welders turning tin buckets over on a line of gasoline they poured on the concrete floor.....and filling them with acetyline from
their torches, then setting them off....the boom is tremedous and the bucket can go hundreds of feet.
Perhaps a horizontal arrangement with a bucket inside a steel pipe with the end welded shut and a valave to let the acetyline into the pipe behind the
bucket.....then merely fill with nails rocks and what have you and torch her off....like a giant shotgun.....homemade grapeshot......takes out a whole
segment of detractors.
A reloadable version would be simple to make as well....just cut the flat end off an acetyline cylinder or other gas cylinder,
Bingo, you have a gas cannon that needs only the rounds and the acetyline source attached to it.....
Could be made in any welding shop in less that ten minutes.....finding the right size buckets may be a challenge but im willing to bet some tin cans
of fruit or whatever from a super mart will fit well enough....
If time permits a rough welding job to a mount will let you aim from a pick-up bed or wherever it can be mounted.
Drill oput and thread a spark plud into the side of the chamber for ignition...with a condenser and coil or old distributor from a car.....and a
batteryHardware store have nails by the keg.....short roofers 1 inch or so would be deadly (they are sharp and flat heads too)
Oh, and STAND CLEAR when FIRING heheheh
I wonder what a booby trap version would be like?
The idea would make a wicked IED as no explosive powders are required, (less detectaable)and acetyline is commonly available everywhere.....
Propane or other natural gas would work as well.....
