Pine Pitch Glue Sticks


Pine pitch glue is a cool and a fairly helpful primitive glue that you could use for a lot of diverse factors in a survival scenario.  Making pine pitch glue is fairly effortless as effectively.  The initially point you will want to do is discover a couple of pine trees with pine pitch oozing out of them.  Then get an old metal container and collect up a couple of ounces of the pine pitch.  Then get a excellent fire going and burn some excellent fuel sized wood and get a piece of throughly burned charcoal.  You want the charcoal to be about 1/three of the quantity of the pine pitch.  Crush the charcoal into a fine powder (The charcoal acts as a bonding and hardening agent).  Then melt the pine pitch in the metal container (I applied an old spam can) more than the hot coals.  I discovered the challenging way that attempting to do this more than open flames is not the greatest due to the fact the pine pitch keeps wanting to catch on fire.  So excellent hot coals operate greatest.  Let the pine pitch melt down to a excellent constant liquid.  Remove the metal container from the fire and stir in the charcoal and mix totally.  Then let to cool slightly.  Now take two sticks about the size of a popsicle stick and stir in the pine pitch glue.

Jerry Samouce from an short article posted on a forum on  http://www.Silver Seek.Com has a recipe that calls for adding some beeswax and gum arabic.  He says that adding extra beeswax will retain the glue from hardening also significantly.  He added that in ancient occasions the Israelites would take the sticky pine pitch glue and cover throw sticks with it and throw them at birds.  The glue then stuck to the feathers of the bird and kept them from flying off or pulled them out of the sky.  Pretty cool trick!  He also points out that pine pitch glue is also excellent for holding leather or cord wrapped handles on spears or walking sticks and can also be applied to add strength to whipping on spear points or primitive knives, and so forth.  To see Jerry’s complete short article click right here.
