Great pictures!
I don't even know where to start with questions and comments.
You did what to that poor Zippo?
Where do You get powdered Magnesium?
Worlds largest lighters, or worlds smallest condoms?
You built a time machine? Out of a Delorean? Er, I mean, You built a solid fuel tab stove? Out of a floppy disk?

Cheers!

These also work great for the deer hunter. Cut in half, put into film cannister with deer "scent" , leave string hang outside and snap lid on. You can put several in a cannister. Go to your tree stand and take them out of the cannister and hang on tree limbs in the vicinity of your treestand. ;) They Work!!!

Mofified the zippo to use a sewing machine bobbin wound with jute twine as the fuel(consider it tinder on a spool ;) ) Pull a small amount out and fluff it. Turn the spark wheel and the fluffed twine ignites. The lighter is kept in my emergency grab and run kit. It's always ready to lite :)

Powdered magnesium is available on eabay occasionally.

I used large "finger cots" available at Kmart pharmacy to waterproof the lighters and batterys. After 1 year the latex dries out and falls apart. bummer!!!! Don't use as condoms or as long term waterproofing.

In the early days of the comact disc the metal piece was made of stainless steel on the better quality discs. I was into fire related items when I frequented a survival site back in 2003. That site is where I came to know tiny and his cute behavior.

Very clever ideas.If You don't mind, I'm gonna try the Zippo trick. I guess You use it dry without fuel?.

Sorry You and Tinny don't get along :cry: I like You both so I'm gonna stay netural.

Get some jute twine first, fluff the end of it at least 1" inch of it and lite it with a spark. Practice first, then buy a cheapo lighter to cut up.

There is a video I made to show the jute being ignited with a ferro rod, have you seen it?
