    Its good, but if you don't have matches, you probably wouldn't have batteries or steel wool either. good though!

    Steel wool is great for tinder, and batteries can be used for many things.

    But, for example, if I was in the wilderness, lost, alone, and confused, I doubt I would be able to find a Battery and steel wool.

    Lol! This is called a 5 min video and it's 1:02 mins. Anyway this is awesome! I had no idea this would work! Also, would it work with #3 steel wool?

    i have watched this video on practically evry website that is about making stuff, the EXACT same video.

    Nice Instructable, but it has been done before.

    Well I'll be damned. That is a good idea.
