Looks like pressure washer material to me. Pre-spray them let 'em have it!

i can confirm this, 2 years of smoking 200 grams of tobacco per month pretty much makes you an expert on distinguishing between different brands of lighters.

and in the interest of maintaining my current 5 month abstinence from smoking at all, I suggest that a cd is used in the future for remote guesstimation of size determination.

lighters are just too damn distracting.

oh and for cleaning those heatsinks, get some degreaser from the auto place and use that, it should get all of that gunk off right down to the molecular level, tho yeah washing detergent works fine too it seems.

Beginner, Newbie, whatever........24 months?! So, you are a kid....with sense though. You gave up. But real men don't bear their pain in public, especially here!

Some of us have been facing this struggle for nigh on 50 years....you have some way to go.

it seems marriage spoiled ya all

looking at pics of heatsinks, all what they are talking is - about cleaning .....

nobody asked for thermal capacity , intended purpose , rest of case

Mea clupa. I did not take a close enough look at that dreadful little thing they call lighter that you are making lighter stands for. I suggest you use a proper BIC next time.

Btw what can the thermal capacity be for such things? Are they safe to use for christmas candlesticks?
