Emergency fire starter

Uploaded on January 07, 2010

You can use steel wool and a 9 volt battery as a fire starter.
Keep the "componets seperate till use. Then pull apart some steel wool and just "drag" the battery across it to get some "fire". make sure to have your "fire" ready to go before lighting your "starter".

Who carries steel wool with them ? Nice trick to show cub scouts. Carry a bic or flint rod and know how to use it. Much better than any steel wool fire.

This fire starter is for when your gps takes you of course in the snow covered desert mtns and you have no fire starter in you suv and you did'nt think about a back up map or bic lighters.

When I pull my pants on in the morning I have both a zippo lighter and a matchsafe full of matches in the pockets. I'm pretty sure that I have some steel wool out in the shop, but I'm not sure if there is a 9 volt battery anywhere abouts.

AGREED NEAT TRICK TO SHOW SOME CUB/BOY SCOUTS BUT FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES IN A SURVIVAL KIT OR HUNTING PACK A LIGHTER AND A PACK OF WATERPROOF MATCHES WOULD SERVE MUCH BETTER.

NEW FUSE LIGHT THERMITE FIRE STARTER we got the idea from a trusted source, the u.s.military thermite was originally made for the military Thermite grenades are used as incendiary devices to quickly destroy items or equipment when there is imminent danger of them being captured by enemy forces. These new emergency fire starters are designed for extreme situations, such as deep snow or heavy wet rainy conditions. Match or lighter ignited. Safe and the most effective fire starter ever created. During survival situation the ability to construct a fire can make the difference between living and dying. The ability to start a fire is the number one survival skill you can have, without which you will likely be in serious trouble during an emergency survival or disaster situation. None of the current available fire starters on the market work in deep snow or extreme wet conditions were you would need them most. The ability to start an emergency fire is a true test for any seasoned camper. In survival situations, this skill is even more critical. Rarely is a fire started by simply putting a flaming match to wood. Rainy weather, green wood, blustering wind and bitter cold can make starting a fire and keeping it lit challenging. When you want a good fire and you want it now, thermite fire starters can be your salvation. Even under the most adverse outdoor conditions. , pouring rain or 3 feet of snow on soaking wet hardwood is no match for thermite. One match and you have 4,500 degrees of melted iron. Each 3 ounce thermite fire starter burns for about 20 seconds leaving behind 2.7 ounces white hot 4,500 degree melted iron that remains white hot for minuets after and remains red hot long after that to get even the wettest wood burning.
INSTRUCTIONS;
When you need a fire simply gather wood, wet or dry and spread it out on the ground and pile more up.
snow is no problem so you don't have to dig down threw 3 feet of snow to use thermite,just make sure to have a solid layer of wood on the ground to catch the melted iron. Now place a 3 ounce thermite fire starter with cap open and visco fuse exposed, now placing lighter or match under the visco fuse ignite fuse and stand back. Do not stand directly over thermite fire starter after fuse is ignited,theremite generates a lot of sparks.
Allow thermite to burn out and add more wood. The white hot melted iron will immediately ignite the wood.3-5 seconds later you will have 2.7 ounces 4,500 degree F MELTED IRON THAT WILL IGNITE EVEN WET DAMP HARDWOOD.
