Fire! / Re: My first attempt at Friction Fire
« Last post by Punty on August 08, 2018, 04:38:49 PM »
  Hey, thanks for the feedback and taking the time to read it, guys. :D

  I wasn't actually trying to start a fire, just to accomplish flame, so I wasn't too concerned about the tinder bundle. I've gotten flame with that green twine in the middle using charcloth and flint and steel, and the rest is birch I figured if I could get flame with charcloth ember, it should work with an ember from a firebow. I have no idea if it would have. Unfortunately, everything around was just saturated with water from nightly downpours and thunderstorms for several I didn't really bother to try to put otgether a tinder bundle from the stuff around me. I just grabbed some birch bark off a dead tree and went with that.

I did a quick mod to my nimblewill. It's not an original stainless but a tin copy. I have had issues with a few of my pots and pans not fitting. So I drilled holes for some support. This is an extreme presentation just to show the versatility it now has. The front to back stakes perfectly support the left to right stakes. I am using dollar store steel garden stakes. Two stakes are all that are needed for my Fosters pot. I use four for my canteen cup.

This one works pretty well for reading Orbean, weighs nothing, and collapses down to a small size.

personally I like the UCO candle lantern with the reflector on it. I have read that the keychain lights with a ping pong ball cover diffuses the light well. if your headlight is large then maybe a milk jug plastic diffuser will work for you.
Is it the glare or the or is it just not bright enough.  Check your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto. They seem to have a good selection of lights.
For more light I would suggest a COB led.

For less glare maybe a diffused bulb.

I am in the market for a rechargeable lantern that would work for reading at night. My head lamp is not cutting it. I don't know if it is not bright enough, or if the led's  put out bad light, all I do know it is not a good reading light. I think part of the issue is the LED's themselves, it seems to me that back when headlamps and lanterns used old school bulbs the reading light was better.

Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks

I'm not sure but I think Hushnel scored a Wick Damascas blade at a rendezvous here in FL years ago.  Man, I was standing right there... a neck knife of beauty.  Opportunity lost.
