    Fire Science (swedish torch)

    This is by far the best thing ive seen in a while. If you are into camping, surfcasting, hunting or any outdoor activity and want an easy, quick and long lasting fire with good light output this is for you. 2-4 hours is expected just from pine.
    All you need is a nice dry ring from a log or cut them wet and store until dry.
    Make 8 cuts with the saw of your choice and add 1 cup of gasoline to the centre and youre away!
    Ive got a couple on the back of the ute ready to go.

    Nice

    Simple ideas are usually the best.

    Will definitely give this a go.

    Cheers

    Big native wood is bloody good but takes a few years to dry properly.

    Thanks Gibo and it just so happens that I know where there is old dry pine logs not far from the road end.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Good one Gibo - when you cut with the saw do you put the nose of the saw downwards in the centre to create a cup for the fuel?

    Nah doesn't seem to need it mate. Just make the cuts and stay at least 2 inch from cutting through. I was dubious as but my mate wacked in the cuts, poured a touch of gas and away it went. Perfect amount of air/fuel mix to make it hum. If the wood was wet it would fail miserably.
    Have a go mate its bloody cool.

    I have owned a heap of Huskys and one stihl. I would use the stihl for this job. I'd leave it in the wood and use it to start the fire. Best thing for the plastic heap of shit.
