this is how to transform your ordinary bic lighter into lighter/ bowl turner/ stir tool/ pokeyjab/ bowl packer/ scraper/ whatever you wanna call it.

Step 1: Lighter

get yourself a bic lighter that still has the thumb safety.

Step 2: Disassembly

pry up thumb safety as shown

Step 3: Removal

remove thumb guard and metal housing entirely.



EDIT: easy tip for straightening , at this step before removing the housing, insert the toothed part into the slats on the back and bend backwards over the striking wheel.

Step 4: Augmentation

next grasp the flat part of the thumb guard with pliers. bend guard away from pronged teeth on flat part of guard.

Step 5: Housing

squeeze metal housing so it will stay on but leave a gap.

Step 6: Assembly

slip guard under housing, flat part up, pronged teeth down. then press housing into proper place (this will be very snug, even unlightable, guaranteed to jam if no more steps are followed)



EDIT*

to put the pick directly off the back of the lighter: before replacing housing, melt plastic in desired place and press the pronged end in the melted plastic to make a place for it to set and still avoid jamming. replace housing . pick is more comfortable to pocket this way.

Step 7: Heat

at this point you can straighten the new pick as you see fit.

add heat to melt plastic at base of pick.( ignore if you followed edit in step 6)

while plastic is hot use something to press downward on the housing, this will set the pick in its own spot.

Step 8: Safety First

pick is best off to the side because it jams the mechanism less. check for jamming by pressing button and releasing then listening for gas, and striking repeatedly. if it stays lit blow it out and jiggle the pick. you do want pick a little loose, as to prevent further jamming.

Step 9: Finito

there you now have your own pic bic!

      Why not just use a LighterPick? Seems easier and cleaner...

      Please don't add unrelated keywords to projects, i had to sit deleting each unrelated one by one, also please remove this from the bike contest before staff have to bother. Not a bad idea, still I just use a clipper... I left the drug ones in even though it's not the best of ideas to advertise it, you get a bunch of people whining about how they're bad...

      All the glass aficianados I have known have told me that you don't put metal in there.
