Trying to improve the only pain point I still have with #Saintflint which is the loading operation.
Found that having an “open” design (literally) helps to put the PTFE line in place, but not totally satisfied yet. Will still work on something better (hopefully).
This design is available here (Onshape):

@shauki Do you put the hot glue on the nuts or on the PTFE?

Hi @Thai_Architect ! Someone once said that the Saintflint was like the engine of a diesel tank: you can throw whatever at it, it will still work… The question here is merely about the diameter of the hobbed gear to avoid any collision with the “jaws”. The Bic gear can be a little fiddly to correctly put in place without breaking if you’re not too handy (not everybody is gifted like @shauki or @Mauro_Manco ). MK8 and MK7 have different diameter, that’s about it…

Lol Michel u just remember me how many lighter find on street (and 90%working ) Now have free lighter for years :slight_smile: anyway I move on mk8 38 tooth gear cheap and no risk to break it.

Yep! Still have the same reflex today as well… Looking down!

We city have Good quantity of free resources lol

Circular economy (pun intended)!
