Primitive Technology: Simplified fire blower and furnace experiments.

Each week we'd like to provide you with interesting and entertaining content we think you'll enjoy.

My cousin introduced me to a YouTube channel called Primitive Technology.  I've watched several including where he makes an axe out of stones and wood.  A couple days ago I watched this video below.

It is quite interesting to ponder this is how fires, blowers, pottery were made back in the day. 

"Blower description 
The purpose of this project was to test a simplified blower design connected to a furnace. I purposely did this to show that people in most natural environments should be able to replicate this design without difficulty. This blower differed from the previous one in several ways to simplify the construction method." From the video


Enjoy!
