I've always been a bit of a Pyro, even as a kid.
The picture above is of Yours Truly having a little fun with a $25 Roofer's Torch (my 'Dangerous Toy') purchased from Harbor Freight Tools and modified with a 10 foot hose.
I've since added a backpack rig to hold the 20# tank which also can be inverted to create a 8 to 12 foot plume of flame.
A stunt like this is not for the unprepared or the faint of heart. I take precautions to provide myself with Fire Protection. Many thanks go to Wally Glen aka Pyro Boy for his invaluable support and sage advice on Fire Performer Safety.
