    Plain old copper or brass tubing from the hardware store works too.

    You can also get stump remover at any hardware store or lawn & garden center. Pure saltpeter. Dissolve the stump remover in water and soak the cotton rope in the solution to make a slow match. You can also soak your tinder in the salt peter.

    We used to have to test the fire kits for chemicals during competitions at rondys. I have seen bird nests go up like a road flare when hit by the first spark!
    We came here to have family fun so shut up and make a freekin' smore!
