    Interesting, not seen that method before. Seemed to work though. One to try I think. Thx for sharing that.

    I've seen it done where you make a few cuts with a chainsaw but thought this was quite well video'd

    I saw these recently in Chur, Switzerland for sale in a petrol station though they claim they're Finnish. I presume you have to leave the forecourt before lighting them :P



    They cost CHF 26.90, which is 17.94 Sterling for the big one on the left. "A fool and his money are soon parted." I thought. (The woods around there are littered with pine trees that've come down due to wind or snow.)
