This video is an addition to the all about fire video (video 1). Due to time allowances I had to break it up.
Here you will learn how to make a fire from a magnifying glass. Sure sounds easy enough right? It’s actually easy if you know how to do it the right way and understand how to do it. If you don’d know the right way and what it actually does your odds of getting a flame are very small.
You must think of it like a ember you get from a bowdrill or hand drill method. You have to build an ember then use air to coax the ember hot enough to actually make the tinder catch on fire.
A credit card size magnifying glass will fit in your wallet and you wont know its there. Having one with you in the woods just gives you one more option incase things go bad.
