    I like the little LED lamp and the generator feeding it. Nice one.

    Minh, Your skills are improving... nice work.
    I'm designing my first flame eater and I'm "borrowing" the design from many other peoples work. I'd be interested in seeing more pictures of your valve mechanism.
    Thanks.

    So I take it that the valve is thin enough that vacuum ultimately creates the seal?
