OK, Boredom  Can Be productive some times....

Been wanting to try making a Trench Lighter, and today the right amount of boredom and motivation was mixed together, and this was created

A couple empty .50 cal casings along with and old 5.56 casing,  and a sacrificial Bic Lighter. 

FIRE....  Was released from what was a  small handful of brass.

The Snuffer cap was made from the neck of a .50 cal casing, along with the base.


The neck was Flared to go over, the business end of the Lighter and the two pieces were soldered together.

The average age of the world's great civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
from bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to complacency;
from complacency to apathy;
from apathy to dependency;
from dependency back again to bondage."

Real nice.

Outstanding!  If I tried that Malpaso would see the smoke plume at his place.

Version 2, I like this one a bit better and kinda of what I originally  envision.


Same basic idea as the last one except the snuffer cap is just a cut down .50 casing. Added a piece of cheap gold plated chain to both of the lighters to retain the snuffer caps.
