Friction Fire 4 Ways... Fire Roll, Hand Drill, Bow Drill, and Bamboo Fire Saw

  • I did a video way back called Friction Fire 3 ways. That's before I learned the Bamboo Fire Saw. So for a long time now, I've been wanting to make this all inclusive video... I start off with the very easy Cotton and Ashes Fire Roll and show how the ignited Fire Roll can linger for 3 minutes and still be brought to flames. Then I show the Hand Drill (Horseweed on Pine) and use 100 floats (still trying to improve my float endurance) and 3 passes down the spindle to get the ember. Then onto the Bow Drill using the Pine 2x4 set. Notice how much sap was in the dust. It wouldn't even knock off my board. Then the Bamboo Fire Saw went off without a hitch. Come check out these 4 different Friction Fire techniques. Please SUBSCRIBE at the end of the video. Thanks!
