I am bound in a book but you cannot read me,
I am struck and played but not musically,
I am your equal in skill and also in stature,
I am used in heat and light manufacture.

What am I?

Cool. Fun and quite easy. May I share an observation? "...bound to a book but you cannot read me" suggests that the rest of the book may be read. Was it the intention to make us realize that the cover of a book of matches indeed has writings on it that people read? Thanks for the teaser.

I didn't get it, but I should have - I got it 3 years ago. Worries me that I'm losing it!

This was an unfair puzzle. The clueswould have been confusing but fairer IF the answer were matches or " thew word match" a march induicates one object. and the clues refer to 2 VERY different item with completely different meaings

Easy, though I did have to read it over a couple of times.

There is something exquisite about this one. I didn't get it but worth the time spent.
