I think the dime sized piece of charcloth ajusted for inflation
should be the size of a silver dollar.

:cheers: I am going for the first 50.
Good work.
edit, I just went to give it a try & need some help. I have flint but what can I use as a striker? I am not going to use my knife blade. I tried the tang and side of a few files & a old band saw blade. The most I got was 1 or 2 small sparks.
Any ideas?
