I thought a marine/ former miltary could appreciate this.

These restoration videos are great. Here's an old Soviet motorcycle one

That is one of the coolest restoration videos I've seen. I love the attention to detail and the experience he has in not ****ing delicate things up.

My dead uncle left me one of these [pictured below]. He didn't give me the story but it's one of the ones pictured on the bottom line. I'm not pretending it had anything to do with the marines. But watching this 'One Flint Strike on Wick' video reminded me of it. I can't remember when they started mass producing 'One Strike and Close' lighters. Watching the guy in this video demonstrate how it was worked is really cool, and OLD school !
