hi there /diy/, i have an old zippo lighter that i never use and want to do something cool with it, please tell me what i should do, i have seen people make them simple storage compartments, vapes, and also guns. you decide its fate /diy
How old is it OP? The date is stamped on the bottom.
Have you considered filling it with a flammable liquid and using it to start fires?
They're the size of a matchbox, what useful things can you fit in a matchbox?
heres a pic of the bottom, its 4 years old but barely used, i know its a waste of a good zippo but i don't use it anyway
Bumping for interest, i have a zippo i dont use lying around as well. If somebody knows how to a make a jammer or a gun out of it, or a way to have it detonate when opened thatd be great.
pull out the insides, fill it with strike anywhere matches, then scribe a striker onto the bottom.. sell to hipsters as an old school pipe lighter for about 50x what it's actually worth... repeat for max profit...
I think you can buy different internals for it that take butane or some gas instead.
I have two regular zippo and the novely of having to fill it up every few days gets old, I just went back to using bics and put the zippos on display.
Print onto transfer paper with laser printer toner, get some etching solution (Ferric Chloride), make weeaboo lighter for weeaboos
