How to Make Auto-Igniting Fire Arrows

About: I like turning boring things into awesome things! Usually on video.

I was thinking to myself a while ago that it would be really cool if I could launch steel wool high into the air to create a fiery comet effect. As I was pouring over ideas I thought, why not just make fire arrows? It turned out to be quite simple.

    Nope, no video here either. Sounds like an awesome idea. Hope you get the video on here for us to see

    I don't know if there is a video attached, but I don't see anything except for a picture and just and intro. Is it because I'm using iOS?

    I don't know. The new Instructible creator is worthless. The video is there for me, but when creating the article I had to delete the video and thumbnail several times before I could get it to work right. That may have caused issues.

    I'm halfway through a video detailing this same process! Great minds think alike. ;-)
