Done myself a mischief
« on: November 04, 2020, 08:48:48 pm »
Just done myself a mischief, steaming up a Mamod SE3 and splashed the table with metho from the lit burner, felt like I was getting a little warm.........


This flanno is only about 4 years old and just getting broken in  >:(

The flame thrower effect of some of those old spirit burners is very impressive isn't it and handy how its pointed at the operator.

I keep a water bottle atomiser that shoots out a goodly amount of water handy now....its what I put myself out with a little while ago  :(

Yea... Had to grab that one out of the engine with my hand so I didnít burn the paint!  :D

I keep a couple wet towels handy, made my table top metal and have a concrete floor in the basement

Haha, no, all buried in the shed for winter. I let them play with a few buckets of dirty carrot water in their sandbox and they were happy  :D

Ouch ... but good thing you had a fairly thick shirt on, as the flame would have been through a t-shirt and onto your skin in no time!

Glad you only lost a shirt tail Jim ...... really glad you didn't lose more!!!

They will bite back on occasion and good on you having the water sprayer at the ready.

I have found that some of the flamethrower vent tube effect can be prevented by putting a silicon tube 5-6" long on the vent. After it gets hot, this gets the vapor far enough away from the flame that it rarely ignites. The tube extension also gives you something cool to the touch to grab onto when you need to pull it out.
