Hey /diy/ done a google search for this shotgun like lighter I bought at a local gas station so I could have a smoke for later.
Unfortunately I tried to get this thing to work, but I don't know what I'm doing, and I'm hurting my fingers by attempting to get this fucking piece of shit to work...
Does /diy/ know how to get a cigarette lighter that looks like the pic to operate and work?
Pic related. Fuck you google for being a piece of shit.
1) If you only just bought it and it is broken, why not simply exchange it for another?
2) It is almost certainly gas but just incase could you confirm what fuel it uses?
3) Can you explain the nature of the fault? Are you unable to operate the mechanism in some way? Are you operating it but nothing is happening? If it uses a piezoelectric sparker is that not producing a spark? If it is gas fuelled then is gas issuing from the valve when you operate the mechanism? You'll be able to see escaping butane as a ripple in the air or smell it
We need more information.
I think the issue is simply that OP does not know how to operate the lighter in question.
>Unfortunately I tried to get this thing to work, but I don't know what I'm doing, and I'm hurting my fingers by attempting to get this fucking piece of shit to work...
This makes it pretty clear to me.
Well unless it was made in some alternate fucking reality where firing a gun involves some strange mystical rite then I suggest he tries pulling the fucking trigger.
Seeing as that's so blindingly and moronically obvious I assumed that wasn't the issue.
Did you test it before you bought it?
That's on you then. Shit like this attracts people to play with it, people play with it until it runs out of fluid.
You bought an empty lighter sinpie.
Looks like the end of the gun butt may come off? Probably the refill panel. Try taking it off and putting more fluid in. Don't break it if it isn't a removable panel. If it is only fill with a reasonable amount of fluid.
I got it at a marathon gas station, I asked the guy to try it out to see if it works, and the fucker tells me, you got 7.50?
I tell the git that I got 7.50, and then I bought it, the spanish fucker doesn't give me a receipt after I get out.
