This particular flame thrower is made to fit in a normal backpack, keeping your arms and hands free for throwing flames while you use it!
With an air compressor, a diesel nozzle, a fuel tank, some hose, and some fittings, you’ll have a flame thrower capable of running off of tiki torch fuel.
Here we have the step by step instructions, but you can find the full video instructions at the bottom of this post.

Start with an air compressor. You’ll want to remove the regulator, and fill in the space left behind with a brass plug.
Tap a hole in the bottom of the compressor to add fittings.
Your fittings should look like this with the correct valves.
Run a host from the valve and fit the end with an internal check valve.
Connect the internal check valve to a diesel nozzle.
Remove the spout and add a pipe running down to a tip and hose as pictured. The tip and hose will run the fuel for your flame.
Run a hose with a nozzle to a fuel tank tapped with a valve and fitting like this. Fill up your tank with tiki torch fuel! Add valve along the hose to better regulate your fuel.
Spark up and start throwing flames! You can adjust with the nozzles on the hose. The whole rigging will fit neatly into a backpack.
