I thought of the MG because awhile back I cut up a few of those cheap $3 fire starting flints for some fun so I have a nice large prescription med bottle of it. I'll have to try it myself and see what happens.
It's not too hard to light a sparkler. Have some of those relighting birthday candles too that I haven't tried yet. Fuses for smoke bombs or whatever are really easy to light. I'll admit to smoking a few flying ants that got in the house with one of my Ebay 405nm but they were really stinky.

That's great, now you can use 10 x 8 watt diodes rather 10 x 1 watt diodes.
YES, you know you want to do it, just make sure to post a video after you do. :D
RC is right! You must!!!

Has anyone tried lighting magnesium from one of those cheap fire starting flint kits?
Tried mg today PMan, shavings lit easily, may chunk it up like you did and try it later, kinda scary tho, mg cannot be extinguished ( i think) and throws sparks bigtime

Can you use the small shavings to light the cubes? Like kindling for a log set it up so the little bits fire the chunks.

Just burn some stuff with my spiker 5w 445nm today;)

I like the fire popping sounds so much, it's fascinating even though it pops quite frequently.:crackup:
