Re: New survival tool for Bug Out Tins

It looks like you'd cut the crap out of your hand no matter which tool you go to use.. I love multi-tool gadgets. but Yeah... this looks painful. :shock: I was thinking that if the saw worked ( I'm not sure the raised portions on the ends would help your already limited draw length) you could cut e...

Re: New survival tool for Bug Out Tins

I'm on my way out the door at the moment, and will get back to this thread shortly, but I'd like to clear up a couple things. Have any of you guys ever used the little saw blade that came with the old Swiss Army Knives? I haven't owned one in years, but I do remember them working quite well for sawi...

Re: New survival tool for Bug Out Tins

A fire starter that you need an allen wrench to access? :shock: The main magnesium stick is exposed to allow scraping and striking. If that one wears out, you can remove the set screw (with an allen wrench) and then replace it with the magnesium stick spare, which is stored inside the tool. However...

SolidWorks for main design. MasterCAM's SW Plugin to generate the tool paths for machining.

New survival tool for Bug Out Tins

While constructing my own Bug Out Tin, I began to ponder the idea of a multi-purpose tool that would fulfill the most basic functions for survival, yet fit perfectly inside a common Altoids can. While there are other multi-tools on the market, they were all lacking the ability to start a simple fire...

Re: My "Ultimate" Altoids Tin

I really like that Altoids can setup! Very clever indeed. One question, how do you tie up the 550 cord so that it doesn't come undone in your pocket or wherever you have it stored? I don't have much experience with wrapping, or all the different knots that could be used, so that peaks my interest. ...

Re: If I designed L4D3...

I know the primary focus of the game is multi-player, but I wish they would develop the single player aspect a little further for people like me who hate online play. I'm not talking about a fundamental change, just some extra options for those of us who'd rather be on our lonesome. A Romero mode w...

Re: Breaching Brake - ZS Edition

I agree it would be nice if the brake was done on a screw in choke, in fact if they are made I would like to have mine made to fit a screw in extended choke tube. Be very easy to silver solder on. http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z271/reloader1959/shotguns/choke.jpg I see what you're saying, and ...

Re: What have you bought lately? (Bug Out Version)

Just scored 2 cases of .gov issued MREs, from late 2009. Menu A & B.

$35 each. Local guy still has 8 more cases. If that's a good price for them, I could pick up the rest from him and ship them out if anyone is interested!
