    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    Very interesting. I wonder if just hammering the cotton roll as the last step would also light it up?

    Thank you I try I do a lot of small classes for a church group called the cowboy Church they do a men's day or weekend and have all the adults with there sons and daughters wives and some times my brain gets too far ahead of what I am doing.

    Oh by the way no one would ever Rob this church they all tote guns pistol to shot gun at the service it's actually pretty cool

    That is an interesting question. I would think on a rock maybe. @Bishop do you have a hammer?

    I don't think hammering will work because the board is help keep in the heat in

    Wonder if that will work with jute twine instead of a cotton ball. If you make a tinder bundle by teasing out the jute before adding the wood ash or rust. Something to try out...
