Yo FisherMAN,,

I found a length of tubing that makes a perfect candle mold for the collapsible lantern,,,
For the un anishiyated,,see yer Garret-Wade catalog,,you DO have a GW cat.,,don't you?
I have made 6 so far,,one at a time sucks,,but hey!, I got until next year dough-nie !?
I have access to a bit of 245 degree wax,,from left over stuff, so a ten hour burn candle should be do-able,,,I'll test when the rains set in ,,turn off all the lights and shit,,and report back!

As long as he doesn't try to blow the candle out, he should be okay.

reading is tuff for some kids,,
"when the rain sets in,",and at night,,hence the darkness needed,,duh!

(Fishy uses his as a lantern,,I use mine as a heater)

tease,

these are a mix of different re-cycle wax,,some of it unknown temps.
The reddish ones are 245 degree wax and should last the longest.


wax sticks,,with a fuse!

Tape them all together in a bundle (so they stay organized and easy to handle.) and put them in your suitcase. Bury them with clothes. Maybe even put your travel alarm clock in with them also(so it doesn't get messed up). You should be fine at most airports......

Tie it all together with speaker wire, for safety...

8 hour burn time,,maybe a bit longer,,but not much.
should get one thru the nite for keeping the condensation down.
a taller mold may be needed for more hours, but then,,,,

No shit about those less fortunate folks.

No, the tranny ain't done. Stoopid automatics. If it had been a 5speed I'd just fixed it myself. He'll have it done sooner or later. When it is, I'll let you know then Posum and I will wait for a Wednesday to pick it up.
