I grew up with something similar to that in the house. :o The one we had was a bit smaller and for the life of me, I don't remember what its specific use was for. Maybe for making gun powder :?: I wonder if we still have that thing. Mom had it sitting on the fireplace hearth.....hmmmm.....I need to sleep on this one and seek knowledge from my elders :oops: :lol:....ok...it's all coming back to me now....there was a reason it sat on the fireplace hearth.............You put oil in the pot, stick the soft rock in the oil to soke up the oil, light it and stick it in a pile of wood chips to start a fire. :DBfire: :fuel: :fire: :DBfire: :cheers:

I imagine you wait until the fuel is burnt off before putting it back in your bucket of fuel... :o
