Aurora Fire Starter

The Aurora Fire Starter is a must have item when it comes to survivability, check this out!

Do it yourself: PBR Burner

What You Need:

2 Aluminum Cans (Beer or Pop Cans)
1 Piece of Sandpaper
1 Exacto-Knife Or Other sharp blade
1 Small piece of insulation (fiberglass)
1 Thumb Tack
1 Bottle of Rubbing Alcohol
1 Lighter or Matches

Step 1

Firstly you will want to drain the can and ensure its empty. You then
want to use the piece of sand paper you have to smooth out the can
and remove any paint that may be on the can. Then you want to measure
up about 1 to 1.5 inches from the base of the can and slice it off
as cleanly as possible.

You will want to repeat this process for the 2nd can as well.

Step 2

Now you'll want to grab some of that fiberglass you have and place a
piece of it into the base of one end of can you have cut off. Once you
have the fiberglass in you will want to fit the 2 pieces together. Do
your best to make sure it is even and tight all the way around as you
do not want any fuel to escape.

Step 3

Grab the thumb tack that you have and poke 5 holes into the center of the top
can. (Use the pattern for 5 from a dice) Then you will want to poke 16 evenly
spaced holes around the outer ring of the can.

The top of your can should look something like this:

Step 4

Using your rubbing alcohol carefully pour 3-5 teaspoons into the 5 center holes
of your burner. clean up any spills you may have made, and light it.

Congratulations you just built your first PBR Burner.
