Gaucho Fire Drill
I found yet another method of fire by friction. This one seems pretty unique to me, I don't recall ever seeing it in any of my scouting-survival-bushcraft-outdoors type of books.
Worth giving a try.... I think it might work very well with a nice socket and a more traditional type of fire board/ hearth on the ground.
The picture appears to show the "gaucho" standing upright and leaning into a tree. I would imagine that you just twirl the drill...
I'll take some pictures and report how well it works if I get "round to it."
