Yep , got a Magnesium Rod .. & They light up easy and burn hot ..
Magnesium is great for making difficult material burn ( As long as it will burn )
Mag burns at 2200 °C , 4000 °F ...
So whilst it's a short burn , it burns hard ( hot ) .
I keep mine in a old M&M plastic tube with a top ( Supermarket ) ..
Yeah , Magnesium burns ..
I remember working at an engineering place and the owner was turning 90% magnesium wheel rims ..
And he had to be ever so careful not to set the rims on fire .. ( Lots of machining fluid / coolant )
