Introduction: Original Altoids Survival Tin
an original, useful survival tin. I know that there have been many others before this, but this one is top quality and awesome.
Step 1: Making It
Before I start, I forgot to add one important, vital thing that will still fit. A small flint and steel set. these are not matches or lighters, but if you know how to use it, it will be even smaller and dependable.
- you will need duct tape, a small knife, a flint and steel set, an altoids tin can, a somewhat larger piece of foil, rubber bands, paperclips, and a needle and thread*.
- as shown in the pictures, you should place everything in the tin can in an organized fashion. Put the flint and steel in the spot it fits in.
*needle and thread are used for sewing things. the ONLY reason you should use them on yourself or others is when you have sterilized the needle and this person will NOT stop bleeding and you need to stitch them up. This is for EMERGENCY SITUATIONS ONLY!!! this is always a LAST RESORT for life or death situations.
Step 2: YOUR DONE!!!
you are now done with your survival tin. You shouldn't have to use it ever, but this is a just in case type of thing. the thread can also be used in snares if needed. Please vote and comment if you like this. Its my second instructible and I'd like to know how to improve. Thanks for reading.
