Of course a lighter is going to be easier. This is an ible' though on how to make fire without one.
None at all. I just wanted to make mine more compact.
Yeah it does. The lens is from an old projector that I had lying around and it has a "zoom" feature so you can adjust the spread of the light. It doesn't spread a huge amount but it does the job

I've always wanted to try this but was worried I wouldn't be able to get enough light out. Does the lens help spread the light out more?
Well it's actually called the British Imperial system. And while Great Britain adopted the metric system starting in 1965. (the US ditto in 1975) That doesn't mean either country actually uses it. GB has made the biggest push to use the metric system. Scientist and such in both countries use metric. However; even in GB many times the 'British Imperial System' is still used.Metrication in the United Kingdom remains equivocal and varies by context. Most of government, industry and commerce use metric units, but imperial units are officially used to specify journey distances, vehicle speeds and the sizes of returnable milk containers, beer and cider glasses (though fresh milk is often still sold in multiples of pints, with the metric equivalent also marked). Imperial units are also often used informally to describe body measurements and vehicle fuel economy. In schools, the use of metric units is the norm; however, schools must also teach childrenabout those imperial units that remain in common usage in the UK.I believe that in 2009 the requirement to ultimately force the use of the metric system was removed due to public pressure.I believe "stones" is still used sometimes to specify weight. British money units after Brixit are pounds, pence ?It's not as easy as some would like to switch from one system to another. It's very hard to think in metric if bought up 'Inperial'. It's pretty complicated to switch plumbing in the US to metric simply because there would be a need for two sizes for many, many years. I've been a proponent of the use of the metric system, am 70 and I still have to estimate 6 centimeters to 2+ inches to visualize it.
