While searching instructables i found a lot of Altoids survival kits and grills so i decided to make one myself. Unlike the countless other Altoids barbeques and grills mine has legs and is collapsible. I have found several 'ibles on how to make an Altoids grill with legs but none could be fit into a pocket and that is the whole point of making an Altoids project. On the other hand, most altoids grills have no legs and are not safe for use on most surfaces. In my 'ible i tried to solve both those problems in a quick easy project
Step 1: Parts and Tools
Four or eight nuts to fit your bolts (eight is more sturdy so that's what i used, four is only for bolts that are threaded all the way to the top and mine are not)
Metal mesh ( i got mine from a metal basket if you don't have one then you can use mesh from a window or a strainer)
drill or awl
wire snippers or some thing else to cut metal
Step 2: Cut Mesh
The mesh will be used for your grilling surface and should be about half an inch wider than the Altoids tin so it can be bent in. Be careful while cutting because the edges can be very sharp.
Step 3: Drill Holes
Step 4: Attach Legs
If you only have four nuts then put the bolt through the hole with the top of the bolt inside the tin. Put the nut on the bottom of the bolt and tighten. Repeat this with the other bolts. This way is much less sturdy and i do not recommend doing it this way if you can help it.
