Pocket bow-drill

I am now working on producing a mini or pocket bow-drill based on my larger version here

The design and specifications are not perfected yet, but yesterday I achieved an ember in 9 seconds.

I hope this size and design will be good for teaching fire by friction as I find they struggle to achieve sufficient pressure on a full sized set.
