Canteen cup seconds giveaway
« on: April 07, 2012, 02:45:10 PM »
I have a couple of canteen cups that have some issues, since I will only sell first quality, I'm giving them away to the first two people that post that they want them.

Please only take it if you need it and plan to use it.

Thanks

Cup #1 is missing one of the butterfly handles but is otherwise perfect.  A bit of heavy wire and some J B weld or a spot weld and it would be good to go.

Cup # 2 was bent, slightly smushed.  I bent it back out but it just isn't right.   However it is in my opinion a perfect candidate for a DIY canteen stove modification.


First poster gets their pick, second poster gets whats left.

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

:thumbsup:



I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Very generous of you wilderbeast, and yes, pics of it being used on an outing should be a must with giveaways :)
