You're talking about the Brown's Gas Machine. It's currently made in
China and being distributed by one company in the U.S. I'm ordering one
if I can swing it. I'll reprint a little of an article I have on it.
Professor Brown developed a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and
oxygen taken from water that is mixed without causing an explosion,
hitherto thought to be impossible to do. He has made another state for
water besides ice, water or steam. It is Brown's Gas!. One liter of
water makes 1860 liters of this gas. When a spark is added to the gas,
it still does not explode, it implodes. Brown's Gas is the only
substance that impodes. When it implodes, it make the most unique welder
in the world. Peo who weld can confirm that it is impossible to weld
dissimiliar metals, glass to metal, metal to brick, and just about
anuything to anything, but you can with a Brown's gas welder. The same
pumpkin colored flame can weld two pieces of aluminum together at 900
degrees F (even if you are not certified to weld aluminum which usually
requires a lot of skill). The same flame can braze copper at twice the
temperature (1800 degress) or put a hole in brick at twice that
temperature. This same pumpkin colored flame can sublimate Tungsten at
over 13,000 dergrees F. As a matter of fact, it can become the
temperature of the sum (8000 degrees C)...

this is pretty amazing stuff, I have thought of so many uses for this
emerging technology it stuns me. Automobile engines for one, the car
that runs on tap water... imagine it!
I'll let you know when I receive more info, my contact has not yet diven
me the name of the distributor. The quote is from the Good News
