Posted:that's not sparks per se, i think that guy just put waaay too much fuel on his poi and didn't let it drip off before lighting, so that when he did light it and swung it around it threw the excess fuel off, pretty yes, dangerous yes, stupid, yes...

man, i gotta try that!

Posted:try a search in the bboard, cap'n. These are made but using steel wool, but the trick is to find/construct a cage that will allow very small particles(read sparks) to pass thru, but no big pieces to burn your audience/friends/family/animals...

I'm in the process of tryin to build such cage b4 tom night meself, anyone have some hints?
