I can get the smoke going in a matter of seconds, but no fire.
Here are the drill holes, I have tried.
They have a v notch in the side to allow some of the embered powder to fall into the pile that accumulates below the fireboard. I have tried a lot of different depths of v notches.
I am going to get some poplar sticks to use instead of sassafras tomorrow. The one piece of wood on the right is poplar but I was still using a sassafras drill.
Has any one else tried this? And if so, can you give me any tips?
