Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about our products
If I cannot find exactly what I want, can you help me build custom projects according to my ideas, or make minor alterations to your models?
Yes, just contact us. We continuously develop new equipment and are happy to help you out if we have the time! We like new ideas, exciting suggestions can be rewarded with a free prototype. We can also use our contacts to get most equipment related to fire art and juggling.
What fuel should I use for spinning fire?
Be aware that fuel names and availability can vary greatly between countries.
We recommend the liquid "paraffin" which is by many considered the best and cleanest product. Pure paraffin can be difficult to find in many places, look for kerosene, lamp oil or barbeque lighting fuel that are about the same, but sometimes producing more smell and smoke. You should not use gas, pure alcohol, lighter fuel or other explosive or highly flammable liquids, since it can be very dangerous. For names in your country, have a look at column 1 at this fuel translation page.
For how long does the wick burn?
This depends very much on which prop it is, which fuel you use, and how you use the prop. Our regular sized poi wicks has a burn time of at least 4-5 minutes with good flames, the larger props considerably longer. A big factor is the shape of the wick: A larger surface area and thus more exposed wick gives bigger and more dense flames, for example the knotted rope wicks we make. A larger volume can hold more fuel, so the more unexposed wick there is, the longer it'll burn.
How do I maximize the flames of my fire equipment?
Didn't the first burn meet your expectations? A Wick tends to burn better and better over the first times, so give it a few more tries. Soak the wicks rather than quickly dipping them to let them absorb much fuel, and allow the fire to really catch before swinging quickly. To keep them burning well and last longer, follow the recommendations that you got with your fire gear.
What if something goes wrong with the equipment?
In the (we are proud to say) unlikely event of any problems, contact us! Using defect or broken fire equipment can be dangerous, so don't hesitate contact us if you're not sure. We are eager to help you find a solution to any problems, and can give hints on how to repair it, even if it was your dog that chewed on it or if the product is no longer covered by our warranty.
Im allergic to the metal Nickel, common in many alloys. Can I use your equipment?
Yes. Almost every part we use is completely free from nickel. Ask us when you order, just to be sure, and we can suggest alternative options if needed.
