A tribe in Indonesia (I think, or somewhere around there) use a square box type of tube, a plunger with feathers for a seal, and some vigerous pumps to ignite dry shavings. This is their fire stick!
As a youth I oiled my pumps with motor oil or whatever and have never been able to ignite anything. That was in the 70's when the valves had a rubber tube mechanism needing something like 20lbs to get the air through the valve.
Air rifles are a different story
