Re: [Technical_Insanity] flame for dragon!!
- All a regulator does is restrict the flow of gas in a line. When you remove
the regulator, then the diameter of the pipe or hose acts as a regulator.
You will get a bigger initial "push" but then the pressure drops back down.
We have been operating devices like this for years with no problems. You
need to understand that fire requires oxygen, and there is no O2 inside a
pipe or hose connected to an LP tank. It is impossible for the flame to go
back into the device and ignite.
I have a licensed installer work on all our fire gags anyway. He has
come up with many different ideas for using fire.

- Hello All,
I agree with all of the previous concerns and warnings. Nothing is
worth harming someone. In the spirit of the haunt I'll just offer
We went to dinner last night at a Japanese hibachi place where they
cook the food at the table. Part of the show was that the cook would
squirt regular cooking oil from a squeezeable ketchup bottle on to the
grill and then light the fumes by hand. It produced a very nice
flame, good heat (even from 15 feet away), and seemed to have a low
level of danger.
You could meter the amount of oil by using a smaller plastic
container. That way, even if you drop the bottle on the grill you
won't have a huge spill.
