Fire Wire – Burning Steel Wool

at 5:55 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, What Were They Thinking


Fire Wire is a way to put on a simple but cool fire display. All you need to do is tie some steel wool to the end of some wire using a slip knot. Then using a lighter light the steel wool. Spinning the burning steel wool produces an impressive (and possibly dangerous) shower of burning metal particles.

    This is really smart thing to do ey?
    I’ve been aware that steel wool can burn for quite awhile.
    Never seen someone put on a show like that.

    I’d wonder if there’s really a use for this beyond entertainment…

    love that song. . So we did this in our church parking lot. But we took it one step further and attached the steel wool to the end of an arrow and fired it in to the air, that was pretty sick
