The thing he designed is what is called "the bullet" in the book.  He gives it to Montag just as Montag is about to leave Faber's house after the first time he goes there.

Faber has made this thing over the years because he has dreamed about leading a rebellion against the society.  He has hoped that there would be people who would go around undermining society and he, Faber, could sit there behind the scenes, telling them what to do without being in danger himself. He says this shows what a coward he is.
