Dragon with flames

Postby hacnwac » Thu Oct 26, 2017 5:52 pm

I did post this pic in the file sharing thanking the original poster for the file but I thought I might as well put it here to. I wish the flame was bigger but good enough for first try and halloween.

Love it.
Would like something similar in my front garden (without the flames) :-)

Love it also!!!
I would like to know more about the flame design. Propane, I am assuming but what is the burner end? Is flame continuous or do you have it on some kind of timer to go off intermittently?

Thanks

tnbrdr you are correct that it is propane. This is a first try with flames. I just robbed a scrap bbq for tank connection added extra hose and attached a 6 inch long 3/8 pipe and cap to end with a 1/8 hloe drilled in the cap. This was a spur of the moment thing so currently it runs continuous. I would like to get a low voltage solenoid to make it go on and off. The only issue with that is you would either need an igniter (scrap bbq) or as long as the shutoff leaks a little propane past there is a small flame always on at end. I only know this from a couple hours screwing around. I am no expert so this is one of those things they tell you to not try at home. It is fun tho.

Very cool! Any way you can share the scaled up version you have done?

I will see if I can find it when I get back to the shop. If memory serves I think it is just scaled up 3x what the original poster shared on the file sharing forum. Any of these 3d puzzels can be scaled up or down easily. All you need to do is take the original slot size and multiply or divide it to the size of the material you want to use. Sometimes you have to be careful about strength if you get it to big. I think this one used about 75 sq feet of 1/4 plate and I'm guessing weighs around 700 lbs.
