DIY Bee Line/ Ital Hemp Lighter - a low cost organic ignition source
    #283308 - 09/20/09 03:38 PM (7 years, 2 months ago)

DIY Bee Line/Ital Hemp Lighter, a hemp cord coated in beeswax for a more organic ignition source. Here's a simple method on how to make your own.

Supplies

1 Beeswax Candle


1 ball of 48Lb. hemp cord, I went with the 400 Foot ball


The How To:

First I light the 100% beeswax candle.


Get a nice pool of wax built up in the candle.
(I once heard that a candle should be burnt for 1 hour for each inch in diameter that the candle is. Depending on the size of your candle, it might take a little longer for the wax to pool) this took close to an hour for me but I only have big candles at the moment.


Take how ever many feet of of line you want to make & cut it off. I like to Untwist a small section to dip (usually ends up being 3-6 inches).You don't have to untwist it but I feel it absorbs better into the hemp when untwisted, so that's what I do. If you decide to just dip the cord as is, you should rub the excess wax into the cord while wiping it off.





Start feeding the cord into the pool of wax.


When coated, twist the hemp line back together while wiping off any excess with your fingers.



Then smooth out the line so it is round again.


Repeat until the length you have selected to dip, is completed


This gets a little messy. There is always excess wax on your fingers, so a sheet of news paper or something that will collect the wax you rub off your fingers is a good idea.


Allow to cool & wrap it up around a plastic card or a piece of cardboard. I chose to use an old gift card that I made 3 or 4 cuts in.



The cuts are simply to hold the line in place both while using & on the card.


Now you light the wick with a lighter, candle, stove, or some form of fire power & toke away.



Make sure to extinguish after use!!!
These things really hold a cherry so make sure it is totally out so you don't burn something.

Closing Thoughts
It surprisingly does taste better than when using a lighter. This is pure speculation but, I think this thing works because hemp alone burns like $H!T. Since the hemp doesn't burn very well on it's own, I think that's why beeswax is added... to fuel the flame. I think the result of combining these two organic products (the word organic appeals to a pretty big crowd these dayz), causes the flame to burn @ a lower temperature than the lighter's flame does. One last note... it is kinda funny that essentially the idea is lighting weed with weed.

lately i haven't been untwisting the cord & just dipping. then after wards i have been using a propane torch to remove excess wax from the line & to help cook it into the line.

untwisted line ran threw the hot wax before cleaning (notice how unevenly dipped it is)



the reason you can't use this right now is because when you light it... any spot on the wick that is over dipped, will start dripping wax onto what you are trying to light.

the tools - paper plate & propane torch


As Small of A Flame as Possible


Simply heat the line & keep it moving to prevent it from catching on fire. i like to work with about 12"-16" at a time



notice... the wax will start to boil & absorb into the hemp right before combustion. a good technique & a smooth rhythm will prevent combustion.


if the wax starts to bead up too much on the line... simply wipe it along the edge of the plate & continue.

the line comes out very clean & smooth

seems like alot of work for something that costs like $2 but I guess if you dont have access or just live your life DIY style this method is for you :smile:

I might try it but I just dont want to spend $5 on a candle :mushroom2:

Nice Pics BTW :smile:

Cool idea but as far as organics making better tasting weed and better food and crap is pretty much pure bullshit.

that is way too complicated. If you want to smoke with a hemp wick just get a long peice of it out, dip just the tip, let the wax burn off a little bit and then take the hit.

Thanks for the effort man.
Looks like the easier way to do it is untwist, dip, twist.

I bought two packs of the marketed product today.  They work pretty great and you can definitely tell a difference  :bongload:

Seriously guys?
I mean, cool tek and all, but bee line is cheap as shit, and you don't have to do anything but order it and use it.
Here, I made it easy.<---There's MY diy tek.






























































































I also think DANK is TheNewGuy's :puppet:

Why would he make a puppet?

He was a good member and had no reason to pose as anyone else...

Maybe he wanted a new username but didn't want to pay for it.
He also disappeared at almost the same time that DANK showed up.
AND it seems suspicious that DANK randomly asks about a DIY tek for making BeeLine Wick...not something I think people randomly just wonder IMO.
Last thing: Note the title of this thread, then look at the title of this one.
How many people call lighting pot "ignition"?

Just a feeling I have, no big deal.
If DANK proves to be a good member then I say WELCOME, you're not thenewguy anymore :grin:

look up ignition in the dictionary. It's a fairly common word. Sorry for my lack of conformity, maybe it would've been better if i called it, 'sparking up a bowl'? just tried to sound more official

It only seems logical i would inquire about the methods used to ignite, and then i would inquire about a specific method after someone posted something about it..... right?
