GENERAL DISCUSSION TO INCLUDE OFF TOPIC / Re: How many carry a lighter...
« Last post by john k on February 18, 2019, 11:45:15 PM »
Do not carry one daily anymore, but when I do, carry a Bic for lighting stuff.  When I was in the Army,  ended up carrying two,  smoked cigars usually when off duty.  Whenever I had one out, sure enough somebody would run up and ask for a light.  Would pull one of the Zippos out of the left pocket and oblige him.  When I would light my own,  did it with the one in the right pocket.  The one on the light was fueled with lighter fluid.   The one on the left was fueled with lighter fluid, and diesel fuel.   First puff and the fellas bumming a light sure got a funny look on their puss.

It's too far from me to make it worth my while to even take a look.  Even if it was ten minutes away, I doubt I would.  Here's some more pics.  The pool table looks worthless.  Now if he said, if you clean it out you can take what you want, that may be different.  Nobody is going to pay him $1,500.

Keep em around but don't use them.

I've got a US ARMY print Zippo that my dad was given which he gave me because " I don't need a lighter if I don't smoke ", but I don't use a lighter often enough and Zippo's loose their fuel within a couple days.
I tell ya if you're going to keep a lighter of any kind in your toolbox a butane torch lighter sure is handy.

Excelite did put out a 9/16 and a 5/8 ;D

Mama!  :-\

Shoot, I forgot I have some VACO screw starters as well.
And all of my enclosed nut drivers stink! The ones hanging on the pegboard are fine.

What exactly are you looking for, mate? I've got duplicates, and would gladly help you out if I have what you need.


Iíve bought a screwdriver set and hex keys off Amazon so Iím good there. Metric wrenches and sockets is the biggest need. I have ratchets. Not all my ratchets were in my top box. I had the bottom chest that I got from Jabber at my house with a few ratchets in it. Iíll get an inventory this week. Iím pretty sure I donít have anything 1/4Ē though.

OK, shoot, sockets is the one major item I don't have alot of spares on.

Though 1/4" drive I might be able to put together an SAE set for you. Mixed set of Craftsman, Thorsen, perhaps Bonney. Just PM me.

I have a Zippo or two, but don't carry them anymore as they dry out after 2 or 3 days in the typical desert air. Plus once in a while they flip in my pocket, land upside down, and leak lighter fluid. Got a chemical burn on my leg - guess I'm allergic to it?

But I keep them handy at home just in case I need a light.

I have a few vintage Zippo's from my dad's time, but I don't carry one. A few friends of mine have the mini-BIC lighters in their EDC rotation though.
