Fine. I'll make a fire sword.
Started with some 18 guage sheet steel cut into sword-blade shapes with a little extra around the edge of one to create a lip.
Spent a theraputic half hour or so banging on it with a plastic hammer.
(Plastic mallet doesn't stretch or dent the steel as much)
Made a little form out of 1/4" plate to do the tip.
Now since I'm pretending to know what I'm doing, I laid the parts out and tried to puzzle out how the gas should flow through the manifold(blade).
I decided to run the gas up through the handle and put the igniter at the base of the blade.
So we start by giving the blade more depth by grooving it up the middle:
Then I welded a piece of tubing to one side, then sandwiched it together and welded up the edges:
After some careful grinding, we have a nice hollow sword shape.
Here's where it gets tricky;
I have no idea what size to make these orifices, so I'm starting with hacksaw cuts:
This is as far as I got today:
I'll pick it up during the week as time allows.
