Anthony and Ben - Dance off to save the (PCF) galaxy.

(I will not be attending as I need to attend to the recent announcement of Kifer Milling and Berg Airtite Smashing, forming Millsmash. We’re on Round A funding, very excited).

I'm so happy you two found each other. It was evident to almost everyone that this was fate.

"f**k it, just caulk it... caulk hides everything!"


This right here, words of a wise man. lol

I'm a car and metal guy, not a house and wood guy even though carpentry iswhat most of my family has done all their life. So let's just say I've been very nervous about doing the "lite" remodel in my house I've embarked on:floors, baseboard, drywall, etc. I was making myself sick over the baseboards along the long walls and all the rounded corners I was thinking I was making look horrible-- and then I found the absolute joy that is caulk and spackle. Sheeeeeeiiiiit, this is just like mudding a car. I can DO this. Lol lol

Just gotta sell before itall starts cracking. ;)

Don't let @FordPickup92 near it when a buyer comes to look. They see backwards toilet paper during a walkthrough and kiss the sale goodbye.
(Back in the car, the apprehensive couple looks at each other and says the same thing at the same time….”Did you see the toilet paper? They’re….they’re…monsters!”)

There is a very simple utility tool that you can buy for about $3 to $5 that will open any air-tite
In a matter of a few seconds with no damage
to the air-tite . It is a watch repair tool used to
open the back of watches . Mine has been misplaced - but I will attempt to locate it and
send a photo . Otherwise - you can probably
buy one of these watch repair tools online .

Guys everyone is overthinking this. The solution is simple. Apply brute force. If it’s not working, you aren’t applying enough.

Like those Dogbegone videos using Large Cal Rifles on prairie dogs... sure a Ruger 204 will do the trick... but why when you can use a 300 Win Mag! Lmao bigger is better... other than the cost of Ammo.

Not posting a link... the Jack Chop was enough for one thread!

Has anyone tried these ones before? https://www.ebay.com/itm/182488823951

Looks like they have a little notch that looks like it'd allow for easier opening:

They're also cheaper than others. I don't have any valuable chips to protect, but I was thinking about making a custom chip (label) for the players in my regular game, putting them in these things and give one out to each of the guys.

No, but it looks like these will only fit 39mm chips. I don't have many that are 43mm or bigger, but I prefer the padded edge anyway and having the flexibility to be able to fit larger chips is nice.

I see a lot of the Air-Tites (or generics) have an interior depth of 3mm (or less). Any issues with the Air-Tites not closing fully since many chips are 3.3mm or more?
