The $^* is simply a tube - I think Michael Bush said that it is copper - pinched together at the end with a hole drilled in it.  A wooden handle is inserted in the tube.  The handle has a hole in it to provide the vacuum to hold the wax up in the tube.  You can see a picture of it on my blog:

This is when I took it apart so you can see what the component parts are.

Here is a video of how it's used:

thank-you. that helps. i suppose that any non-heat conducting material would work as a handle.
i also found plans for a triangle escape board on the dave cushman website.
