#0008 – Phyre Phryday V/Blog 02/21/2020 – (ED) Egyptian Drill: Proof Red Oak Coals Are More Than Probable
Hello Global Tribe of PhyreKeepers (GTOP)!
02/21/2020 – Our 8th Vlog opens with the Red Oak (ED) Egyptian Drill. I basically destroy a perfectly good reloading (CD) Crutch Drill Spindle and turn it into a smaller (ED) Egyptian Drill. A few months back, some was asking about how to do a HARDER Maple (around 1,500 Janka I think), with (BD) Bow Drill. A lot of advice was given by many. I offered a clear video and explanation of using the (ED) Egyptian Drill instead of being stuck doing “what you know” or “you’re comfortable with,” meaning (BD) Bow Drill.
When I was demo-ing the (ED) Egyptian Drill in Japan last June 2019, I purposefully made the entire set from Rock/Sugar/Hard Maple (Janka Hardness 1,450, about the same as Oaks…). (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEWe15Zid1I)
So, here’s the deal, as soon I I get the sense that any wood is getting more than 800-900 Janka Hardness, I’m going to leave (BD) Bow Drill behind and I’m going to change my technology to an (ED) Egyptian Drill.
I forgot to thank my son, Jake for doing the videoing of last week’s VLOG #0007. This week’s #0008 VLOG video, I thank my daughter Alexa for videoing for us.
There is a Universe of many other Methods (Basics) waiting for you to Discover and Explore…
Still VERY busy trying to update my PhyreDojo site and fulfilling Orders while making these VLOGS and Balancing Life in general…
