Instructables user PDRWLSN created this pocket-sized flame thrower not because it's freaking awesome, but to as a way to start a quick fire when you're camping and only have access to wet wood. The gun uses materials readily available at any hardware store with butane lighter fluid as a fuel source and a BBQ ignition switch as a trigger. Below is a video showing the machine failing to melt snow. If any of you are crazy enough to try this, please, be safe.

From the submitter:

A while back I decided to see how my coffee maker worked. I busted it open and by the time I figured things out, I couldn't put it back together (broken). So I decided I didn't want to buy a new coffee maker and I built this stand for the machine innards. The reservoir was built into the old machine, so I had to add the bottle to hold the water as it heats up. It works great!
