Hello Global Tribe of PhyreKeepers (GTOP)!

02/25/2022 – Welcome to Phyre Dojo’s 71st Phyre Phryday Vlog.

In this week’s VLOG:

I give to you Part 6, Section #030 “The (QD) Q’APLA Drill” from Phyre Dojo’s (FORMER ONLINE COURSE) the “HIDEN DENKI DENSHO” or “HDD”. Hiden Denki Densho roughly translates from Japanese to “Trade Secrets, Electronic, Scroll.” The “HDD” was created from 2010 to 2014. Again, there are 46 Sections (currently) and I will be releasing these Sections every week until JULY 2022.

Part 6, Section #030 is about:

THE (QD) Q’APLA Drill 

In the (QD) Q’APLA Drill video, you’ll see how Phyre Dojo figured out how to create a Drill/Axis Phryction PhyreKeeping Method that allows one to get a Coal with only half-turns and one-quarters turns!!)

Here, we get away from the BASICS and are now just “playing around answering questions.

HYPOTHESIS: I think it is possible to achieve a Coal, with a variation of a Drill/Axis Device Method that allows for ONLY Half-Turns and One-Quarter Turns ONLY!



BONUS VIDEO: I created 2 new (PD) Pump Drills for 2 individuals and here I test one out with the help of my son, Jake, holding the camera. THANX JAKE!

Sets ate made out of WHITE ASH (Fraxinus Americana) and RED OAK (Quercus Spp.)

The HearthBoards and Reloads are made of WHITE FIR (Albies Concolor).



Phyre Dojo’s The S.T.E.A.M. Universe of Phryction PhyreKeeping UX/UI Experience Workshop – JULY 2022

So, on July 4th Weekend of 2022, I will be hosting a gathering which will be a Hands-On, User Experience (UX)/User Interface (UI) Workshop which will not only cover EVERY METHOD and ALL PRINCIPLES/VARIABLES of Phryction PhyreKeeping, there will be READY TO GO SETS available in most known MATERIALS. 

This Workshop will be broadcast LIVE on YouTube that weekend for FREE. 

This 1st time UX/UI Experience Workshop is closed only to those who in the past had signed on to the HIDEN DENKI DENSHO (Online Course) (but is now available for FREE.)

All following Workshops will be open for Registration to all once I have an available schedule for next year.


FOR COMPARISON: ( Atlantic White Cedar (Chamaecyparis Thoyoides) OR Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) (i.e. “Your Cedar (BD) Bow Drill“) are ONLY Janka Hardness Rated: 350…)

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…
