Flammenwerfer Part 4

Good eeeeevning to All my Droogs and Droogettes out there…
Big Country’s been making some serious drive time as of late due to the Christmad Horror-day… err Holiday and unexpected expenditures.  I’ve been pulling 10-12 hour daily runs behind the wheel, with the rule being “No returning to the barn until $100.00 or more is made.”  So far, so good.  That being said I’ve also been exceptionally late with the follow up to the Flamethrower., so it’s time to continue with the Weapon of Mass Destruction:  The Flammenwerfer
This part of the game, again the disclaimer:

DISCLAIMER: 
I AIN’T RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIT. 
I KNOW NUTHIN’ I HEAR NUTHIN’ AND I SEE NUTHIN’.  
THIS’S STRICTLY FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES 
AND IF YOU ARE CRAZY ENOUGH 
TO FOLLOW THE BOUNCING BALL, ITS -ALL- ON YOU.
Ok Nuff said.

Now: Part 4 of this is going to be the Hose and Gun Build.

Parts Needed:
Female Quick Disconnect x 3/8” Male
NPT https://amzn.to/2mXkvTe

Female Quick Disconnect x 3/8” Female
NPT https://amzn.to/2kNQODg

High Pressure Hose 3’ https://amzn.to/2kQddzS
Teflon Tape Yellow https://amzn.to/2n9LJ98
Tools Needed:
1” Wrench
7/8” Wrench
¾” Wrench
Simple really.  Wrap all the parts with the Yellow Teflon
Tape.  It’s really important
to use the yellow as it’s resistant to petroleum based stuff like, oh Napalm
and gas… using -regular- Teflon tape and yer hosed (pardon the pun.)
You’ll want to connect the hose(s) to
the fittings hand tight at first, then crank them down with the wrenches
thusly:
Scissoring them nice n’ tight.  You do NOT want any leaks in the hose area.  Things could get HOT muy malo.

OK… once thats done, you can connect the hose to your previously built tank and see if it fits.  The quick releases are the bomb so to speak b/c it allows you to clear each section IF and only IF you have a clog or something goes pear-shaped during the running of this.  Onward now to the Gun Itself:  For this
Parts Needed:

OK Starting with the Red Brass
Seamless Pipe Fitting, Nipple, Schedule 80, 1/8″ NPT Male X 3″ Length
 https://amzn.to/2kSl6VD,
Tape all the threads again: (Small hint: do this to ALL THE THREADED PIECES
PARTS
.  It’s a given that like
-everything- on this puppy needs to be neatly sealed.)  Once it’s ready, take the 2X Anderson
Metals Brass Pipe Fitting, Coupling, 1/8″ x 1/8″ Female Pipe
 https://amzn.to/2lrNJsP
and mount them on the pipe you just wrapped (heh… that sounds obscene…)  Use the two socket drives thusly to insure
again a -tight- fit:

Then take  the M22 Male x 1/4” Female NPT https://amzn.to/2mpaEp2
and crank THAT on.  Once you have that
installed, attach it to the front of the sprayer.  You now have the gun completed ALMOST.   The only thing left is to attach the Erie Tools Pressure Washer Twist Connect
M22 X 3/8″ Quick Disconnect Plug 4500PSI High Pressure Brass Fitting 300°
F Max Temp 
https://amzn.to/2lpJq1j to the endo of the
feed assembly.  Once this is done, you
should be able to do a pressure test once you’ve connected the hoses to the
tank and gun respectively.  Give it a
shoot so to speak.

And it should look roughly like this:

Which then needs to have the propane tank slung underneath.  For this I used some shims to stabilize it, and used the aforementioned Hose Clamps to strap it on.  Adjustments will vary person-to-person.

For that matter, it’s pretty much at this point complete.  I’m sorry it took so long to do, but what with life, liberty and the pursuit of drunken disorderly charges, I’ve been swamped.  I figured I owed it to you clowns to finish this as an early Merry Christmas for all your kind words, support and even the tips that I’ve gotten from a few of y’all.  You’ve all made my year a HELL of a lot brighter, and you have my thanks for it.

Til later, I remain, the Intrepid Reporter,
Big Country
