Fire Piston

Came across this on a website...

Anyone have any experience using one? Ima gonna make one and try it out next trip.

Non sunt quaestiones. Modo solutiones

I've seen them used on Survivorman.  Compressing a gas QUICKLY creates heat.  He was able to make an ember on the first try....and create fire with the ember.  Sure it works.

Thx mtn, I saw it in a website related to boy scouting....theory looked kool. Originated in Borneo......from what I read.

If I get one made soon, I'll give a heads up on it.. Forum Index -> Gear & Fitness
