I know what you mean. It just isn't the same unless you can use the
acetylene torch to cut some metal. Even if it's just a piece of scrap
that you sneak in so you can put on a show. Then you can turn to your
girlfriend and say something like "I had to wear that strange helmet
because if I stare at the flame without one, it'll destroy my retinas
and I'll go blind." The bravery drives women wild. Gets you laid
eleven times out of every ten tries.
Kewl, but does it make proper sparks or is it just an efficient cutting
tool? A lot of these modern ways of doing industrial stuff have taken
away all of the smoke, sparks, and steam from the actual work. People
can't tell how hard you're working any more because you're not giving
off sparks. I blame the Japanese.
Yes, do that. Especially the ones with sparks and smoke.
That might do it. I was also considering what kind of ground up metal
filings you might want to stuff inside that tube for a good sparkler
effect. A little copper, a dash of molybdenum, some sodium, if you're a
real man, a bit of zinc, and maybe break out the oxygen bottle,
respirator, and protective suit and gloves ... then add a dash of
cadmium and beryllium.
