Random information on the term “Matches”:
A fire piston, sometimes called a fire syringe or a slam rod fire starter, is a device of ancient Southeast Asian origin which is used to kindle fire. It uses the principle of the heating of a gas (in this case air) by rapid and adiabatic compression to ignite a piece of tinder, which is then used to set light to kindling.
A fire piston consists of a hollow cylinder sealed at one end and open at the other. Sizes range in length from 3 to 6 inches (7.5 to 15 cm) with a bore about 0.25 inch (6–7 mm) in diameter, to 10 to 14 inches (25 to 35 cm) with a bore about 0.5 inch (14 mm) in diameter. A piston with an airtight circular seal is fitted into the cylinder. String packing, rubber gaskets, or grease are used to create an air-tight but slippery seal. At the end of the piston is a small cavity where tinder can be attached without it being crushed during subsequent operations. The piston can be completely withdrawn from the cylinder for installation or removal of the tinder.
