Default The TOURNIQUETADOR...say wha?

I have had this old Tourniquet case since I was a little kid. I purchased it a ARMY surplus store (I was 10 or 12 years old). I have loved it since I bought it's never really been used for anything. I'm guessing Vietnam war era but don't know for sure.
I will add some spanish cedar for good measure.

Nice.

Do you have a couple sheets of cedar? That would make for a better environment.

It's got a rubber seal and is (was) made water and dust proof. I did water test it and only got a couple drops which could have been on the outside.

definitely a cool herf box, I agree that a couple thin sheets of cedar on the top and bottom would be a good idea, not absolutely necessary however.

Default Re: The TOURNIQUETADOR...say wha?

I was hankering for a game of cigar tetris and I had some cedar dividers from my desk top so I figured I would see how I could use it in the TOURNIQUETADOR.

This is how it fit with absolutely no modifications.





I fit 38 cigars in it. That's a decent overflow storage until I get the Wineador.

Neat looking box.
I've seen 50 cal ammo boxes converted into a bunch of uses, I've got one I use as a watertight tool kit for the truck. A buddy has one he uses as a humi.

That is bad ass. Period.
You should get some closed cell weatherstripping for around the inside edge of the lid. It'd hold humidity great.
...
Now I think I see an old rubber seal in there? If it's good, erase what I said.
Dood, super cool. I envy you.

My Fiancee is in the Coast Guard, and she brought home an old .45 Ammo Can. I was thinking about cleaning it, and trying it out. This idea has me pretty interested.
