1935 Zippo Hinge
I do not do this kind of work (usually) but was curios about how it would come out.
There was this piece in the package with a lot of history on it and a 1935 Replica.
The request was to use its hinge for the sake of this well used beauty.
I did "age" it a bit so it fits in more nicely.

 DIY Zippo Stand
Would you like a cheap, discreet and easy to make Zippo stand?
All you need is a paperclip (a big one) and a piece of heat-shrink tube used in electronics (about 5 mm per stand).

Bend the paperclip like shown on the photo, place the heat-shrink tube piece on the end and heat it just a little bit so it does not slide.
It took me about 30 seconds to make this one.
The purpose of the tube is to protect the Zippo finish.
And that's it - easy as it sounds!
