SXTL 2 Pack Primitive Fire Starter Bow Drill Fire Starter Kit Friction Fire Kit Scout Tool Survival Practice
2* Instruction Books 2* Base Board
2* Bamboo Handle
2* Bag of Tinder for two fire makings
1. Place the tinder under the pit of the baseboard and step on the baseboard to secure it.
2. Put the head of the drill in the pit, firmly hold and press the top of the spindle with one hand
3. Pull the handle back and forth to drill in the baseboard
4. When you see smoke going, continue drilling for another ten seconds
5. (Important!!!) Wrap the baseboard with the tinder both above and below the hole to prevent any heat loss
6. Hold the tinder and baseboard, blow through the hold slowly and firmly, keep blowing until the smoke turns to a fireball.
Reasons for failure:
Potential reasons for failure:
1. I can’t get any smoke even I tried my best to drill
Reason: Your drilling speed is not fast enough and/or have an insufficient normal force to make friction between the baseboard and the drill head.
Solution: Pull the handle back and forth faster and push the drill against the baseboard.
2. I got glowing red coal but it got cold after I transfer it onto the tinder.
Reason: The coal lost some heat during transfer
Solution: Try to wrap the coal and the baseboard with tinder, keep the coal inside the hole, then blow it.
3. There was some smoke when I just started blowing, but no more smoke generated later
Reason: The coal was not hot enough or the environment is too windy
Solution: Drill longer before blowing the coal and make sure you are in a windless area.
