YouTubers and Redditors Are Making DIY Clones of Elon Musk's Flamethrower

•, Mack DeGeurin

Several weeks ago you may have seen Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk selling flamethrowers on the internet to raise money for his Boring Company infrastructure project. Needless to say these inferno bringers sold like wildfire. It took only four days for Musk to sell 20,000 of the flamethrowers for $500 each. 

While Musk's version may be sold out, this has not stopped some from going the do-it-yourself route. 

One of these intrepid pyromaniacs, YouTuber Jason Salerno, uploaded his Boring Company clone earlier this month. Salerno's version is made of an airsoft gun, a propane torch, a propane tank, a propane extension hose, and one bottle holder extracted from an unsuspecting bicycle. 

The creator began by stripping the white airsoft gun clean and removing all the firing mechanisms. He then had to modify the blowtorch to fit in the plastic gun's handle. He then reinserted all the necessary components to transform the plastic pea shooter to a handheld firebreather. Salerno did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Motherboard.

And last but not least, he added a black stenciled sticker featuring the Boring Company brand name.
