Posted:hey
i've been spinning fire for about 2 months, and i (along with others i've seen) tend to just spin the excess fuel off into the grass. this seems to a) kills the grass and b) wastes a hell of a lot of fuel.
is there any other way to spin off excess without killing things, and preferrably save the excess fuel as well? i have a few half-baked ideas (such as attachable cans) but havent yet experimented with them...any ideas?
thanks
kevin

Posted:Buy a paint can with a handle. Stick your poi in the can and hold the handle so that the poi are hanging half way in, not touching the bottom. Spin the whole setup at a full arm circle for about 10 seconds. No need to attach the can or anything. This will collect all your excess fuel to save the grass and allow you to pour back into your fuel supply. Cheap, simple, effective.

Posted:ditto ICoN, it's amazing how much fuel comes off. I wouldn't squeeze though Kash, because you might easily squeeze off more than you need to. If you spin off using a bucket or can you don't waste any fuel and you don't lose any more than you need to from the wick. Remember the idea is to only get rid of the fuel that would fly off during normal spinning, whilst keeping as much as possible in the wicks.

Will those capable of telekinesis please raise my hand?

Posted:If you put a stainless veggie steamer basket in the bottom of your can or bucket, you can spin off excess fuel quickly and easily. The addition of a stainless (or other corrosion resistant) funnel to your kit, and you can easily pour the recaptured fuel into your tank for future use.

Slice a whole in the side and slice a cut from the whole to the top. But this has all been discussed before.
