About this Product

Fire pistons, or fire syringes as they were called then, were popular household tools throughout Europe during the early nineteenth century until the safety match was invented in 1844. The fire piston may have inspired Rudolf Diesel in his creation of the diesel engine around 1892. The piston with an o-ring makes an airtight circular seal and is fitted into the cylinder. The compression of the air when the piston is quickly rammed into the cylinder causes the interior temperature to rise sharply to 260°C (500°F). This is hot enough for the tinder to ignite.
