Re: Price of Heet

This is not a reference to the price of Heet, but a comment in general about storing for emergencies. A couple of years back I went through several "just in case" bags and boxes. Most of the matches were over twenty years old, and over half of them did not work. Many of the plastic bottles...

Re: Price of Heet

Today (10 Jam 19) at 1600 the UPS driver rang the doorbell and left a package that contained a brand new 4-pack of Heet. This is the kind of customer service that will keep steady customers. Thanks Gold Eagle!

Re: Price of Heet

The guy I talked to was a manager and seemed to know what he was talking about. He told me that the plastic bottle would expand and contract a small bit during temperature changes. This would affect the seal between the bottle and the aluminum foil seal. The small gap created is too small to see, bu...

Re: Price of Heet

Follow up on the empty Heet bottles. I called the Gold Eagle company in Illinois. They are the ones who sell Heet.

Re: Price of Heet

This is an update fro my post of 5 years ago. The four pack of Heet that I purchased in 2013 has sat on a shelf in my garage for these 5 years. It was part of my just-in-case kit for power outages. Out of curiosity I checked the contents of this kit and got a surprise. All four bottles were still fa...

Re: Where to buy hardwarecloth

Not sure if you are still looking for a place to buy hardware cloth, but our local hardware store has it. It is not expensive, and they have a few different sizes. Lowes also carries it. Hope that this helps.

Re: Things that nest and lids that fit

Re: Try this one.

We aren't going to get away with calling it a special watchmaker tool. The hard ones are more fun. When I do figure one out, I can pat myself on the back and tell myself how clever I am. But it would be nice to get one right once in a while!
