i broke my knife…but i got an EMBER!!!!!!!!
i decided to harvest a new busting set to see if i would have better luck. i made a new base board and spindle. in the process of carving out the trench (where the air flows into the baseboard), i broke off the tip of my nice knife. blasts. BUT…then i got an ember! yahoo. there is hope with this whole busting thing. i didn’t want to use my nesting (natural things i’ve gathered that will light well…aka: i can put an ember in a pile of nesting and ideally blow it into a flame); i’m waiting for the real deal. i’m on a break from busting practice now – it’s tiring 🙂
