Then there are barbecue lighters, which have the long nozzle and are good for when you need more distance between your hand and the flame, or if you just need a longer reach, such as when lighting a grill.
YouTube personalities Peter Sripol and Sam Foskuhl made the lighter/blowtorch/lightertorch out of a modified weed torch, an electric ignition, and a blowtorch, as well as custom housing to hold all the components and give the whole build its lighter-esque charm. It turns out their creation is well suited for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to igniting a batch of fireworks and destroying a barbecue grill, as demonstrated in the video. It could also be useful if you need to light a candle across the room but don’t want to get up. At this point, it’s important that I stress that you please don’t actually make a flamethrower lighter yourself and do that, thank you.
What do you think of this giant lighter? What wild but non-nefarious purposes would you use this flaming death machine for? Share your thoughts in the comments!
