You know, I know I shouldn't...

So I won't.

Thanks for sharing Zam-man! :)

I was expecting a totally different method. There is a fire thing technique that uses long flexible strips of bamboo or vines to generate heat in a notched hearth board by rapidly pulling them back and forth. You can get a steel cable as from a bicycle brake cable to do the same thing. It will get smoking hot.The key is to arrange your materials in such a way that the hot dust collects in one place to form an ember like a bow drill does.

So, your saying you have learned a new method? if so, then the time and effort to post this in our new Forum was worth it ...  :fire1:

Just some random "your thong's on fire?" grade school stuff, Zammer. But I was mature and didn't go there... Yay me. ;D
