I rarely design and build something that does not have redundancy or dual use. Engineering and trouble shooting my bizarre concepts is the best part. That way I keep learning.

realityguy, you have given me more ideas. That is called enabling and only contributes to the disorder. :DP:

You might as well construct a "fire piston" while you are at it..not far from it... :roll:
Okay more..fishing...
A nail knot tool for tying up steelhead and salmon flyfishing leaders and tying on flies with gloves on.
For checking the contents of what your mini-trout had for breakfast before you caught it..for "matching the hatch".
Pulling fishhooks out of fish mouths(disgorger).


or..cleaning the poop out of your boot lug soles when out "camo-painting the landmines" on the AT... :roll: (another thread) :lol:

For holding that one last desperate dry emergency match while you're sweating bullets(Please light!..Please Light!.. :o )..
For quick-deflation of a Sevylor canoe when you're too lazy to wait or in a hurry for the air to come out on its own.. :shock:
For checking the depth of the glaciers on Mount Rainier..a little at a time... when you are getting paid by the hour... :roll: ... :lol:
(I hike more Mountain Loop Highway because it's closer to my house and usually not as crowded..so I'd borrow it and use it on Three Fingers.. ;) ..)
For carving your initials on all the signs in MRNP... :mrgreen:

You now have kept me busy well into 2011. :roll: The rapid canoe deflation wand is an excellent idea, I shall start with that one. :lol:

Rain? Slightly north of Seattle surely you're kidding! That is why I have my metal and wood shop. Doesn't matter what the weather is I am creating and making messes.

Believe me if I could get into my garage and shop..I'd be there also. :lol: Why do you think I'm selling bicycles!My herd has out grown my barn at about 15..I'm slimmin' that back down to 9-10..
I do need to get out there and at least clean off the 18" depth on my work table..mostly stove crap. :lol:

I suggest packing a mask,fins, and snorkel for driving the freeways up here today..appropriate attire. :evil:

Dual use or redundancy. Hmmmm.

The idea of a striker still makes the most sense. The rod portion shows a lot of wear, almost polished. A small sharpening steel maybe? You might also use the other end to drill a hole in something....but why???? :?

The tube would work for a couple of different knots.

Hmm..he makes knives and hatchets..that sharpening steel maybe one of its purposes.

Maybe he's like me on the trail and bakes a lot of muffins.That drill is for another hole in his belt when he's had too many... ;)

I am drooling.(my birth year but what month?) I have a 220E from 56 on my birth month. I have a loft filled with lanterns. I need to thin them out like your bikes. :oops:
