    Thanks, I appreciate the reply.

  22. make an indent with your knife then spin slow to burn and make a better place for it to spin, once you have that done make the notch and the spin faster

  23. at the end of the sipndle that needs to burn needs to be rounder and more flat then the other side because the more surface area that turning the more dust and heat and that means a faster coal

    I never saw an open flame at the end, but that was really fast. Very good video.

  25. Well he got it lit… in very little time… screw his form, as long his method works. What interests me, is the width of the spindle. I think thats a very important part of the method used here, and overlooked by most people who try to employ this method.
