Friction Fire Hack: How to Get Coals While Utilizing a Hand Drill

hand drill fire

Knowing several methods of starting fire is a critical skill for casual and experienced survivalists.

It is particularly important if you participate in activities off the beaten path – hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, etc.

In addition to carrying a few different types of fire starters, it is equally important that you know at least one way to create fire without using the fire starting tools that we have grown accustomed to using.

One such method is to use a hand drill to create an ember that you then can use to light tinder and then kindling.

This method is relatively simple, at least in principle, but you must practice it several times before relying on it in the wild.

To learn how to use the hand drill method of starting a fire, please check out the step-by-step instructions on the following page.

    Dear DieHardSurvivor, I just wanted to ask you whether there is a reason all articles on your web page are compiled not on one page and most important part of the article is visible always on “next page”? I assume that in all survivor situation easiest way is the best way 🙂 just asking no complaint

    Hillary is a part of a political globalest special interest organization that has chosen the most evil religion Islam to bring in a new world order and to take away the second amendment, freedom of speech and Christianity. Hillary and Obama are letting Isis win to bring in a new world order, under Hillary Isis wins. Putin is right we are arming Isis to bring in a new world order and recently threaten to start shooting down American aircrafts. Putin recently did a drill they have bunkers for 40 million citizens that they went to and he has a military defense system to stop missiles. Trump will build our military defenses Obama has neglected this. Hillary is a guaranteed failure. Isis is calling for knife attacks on beaches and camp sites and bus stops, Hillary will not care she will bring violence on America just like she did to the Ambassador, she will sacrifice anyone for the new world order.Hillary wants to bring in 5 million. America has never been more unsafe we need to vote for Trump. When I was younger I had a great vision of the Lord Jesus Christ blood going through my skin into my wrist. Jesus was wearing a heavenly blue garment and holding my hand and then I saw a sprinkle of the Lord Jesus Christ blood going through my skin into my wrist. Hebrews 12:22-28,Heavenly Jerusalem, Acts 2:17-21.Matthew 24,Heaven and earth shall pass away but by no means shall my word pass away. In revelations God says to come out of the whore that you receive not of her plagues and in her was found all the deaths of the Christians. This is saying to vote for Trump!Hillary is setting us up just like the 9-11 victims were set up.Voting for Trump is voting against evil.Trump will be bringing back the jobs that are disappearing and bring full time jobs.Wikkileaks prove that Hillary was a part of a arms deal to sell Isis weapons that she was paid off to do just like the 5 million that she plans to bring into America to disable Americans to bring in a new world order.Bringing jobs back and creating them go hand in hand with welfare and college degrees and only Trump has talk about this it is a easy decision he is best to save America.Go on you tube and listen to Wikileaks:Hillary Lied Under Oath About Arming Isis,subscriber Lionel Nation a attorney at Law and he says the media does not care about reporting about how dangerous Hillary and Obama are.This is a sign of the rapture or blessed hope that Jesus Christ Prophesied.Epistle of John.It is odd that in other airplane crashes there is always evidence left but 9-11 there wasn’t any and many scientist are saying because there wasn’t any and out of 86 videos only 1 video shows airplanes and a chemical that is only found in bombs was found in the Twin Towers and 3 weeks before it happened when it was close they where doing work in there when it closed and witness described what they where bringing in and it sounds like they may be right these scientist who investigated 9-11 properly.This is the reason the black boxes where never found which would of withstand the fire and crash.Some 911 researchers are saying that the radar showed military aircrafts behind all the airline planes and there is a way to leave that path and not be detected because of the same path and only a military drone plane would be able to have the speed a big airliner would not at the low atmosphere level and would not be able to hit the target and also weak parts of the plane like the wings or tail would fall off it wouldn’t just disappear into the building perfectly unless it was a military drone which some witnesses say it looked like “That does not look like a commercial airliner “.
