Things MacGyver might like


#1

Here’s something for fellow MacGyver/survivalist enthusiasts (say that fast)…


#2

That puts a new meaning to ‘tool belt’ now, doesn’t it?


#3

Yes, indeed!


#4

Cooool!


#5

I got one…

Junior Explorer badge for anyone who can identify what it is…


#6

fire starter.


#7

Nope! (But a very good guess.) :grin:


#8

Time to start wearing belts just to have that.

And that looks like what you need for a radio.


#9

High power divining rods?


#10

No, but those are clever enough to have me laughing! :laughing:


#11

Spark gap morse code radio?


#12

Nope…think survivalist…

hint - those wires are 99.999


#13

Water purifier from the copper ions created as current flows.


#14

Smurf Juice maker!


#15

I think we’ve got to give you the badge for that one - it’s close enough. (At least in function.)

That’s a pocket ionic silver generator, completely self contained, with enough silver wire in those two bits shown to provide antibiotic protection for a family of five for a good 20 years.

The wires shown have been in use for 10 years already. (i don’t drink it, i’m not going to turn blue, it’s better than antibiotics for cleaning cuts)


#16

Or platinum, right?

Oh, a second too late.


#17

Clever, but no badge! :joy:


#18

Yes, copper and silver are both bactericidal. Yay!


#19

Can’t afford platinum! :money_mouth:
