Folks,

If you have empty Altoids tins, I could use some for a project. Wanting to collect a few dozen. Will reimburse you for the shipping.

PM me if you can supply any.

Thanks and regards,
Tim B.

Altoids tins now come in regular rectangular, giant rectangular, and round. Which variation were you looking for?

I have two friends who store their cameras in the regular altoid's tins!

I'm wanting the ones the size of the peppermints box...1.76 oz (50g). Would that be regular rectangular?

LOL, no, but I am familiar with ReadyMadeMag.

I am making a Christmas gift for a friend that:
1. Enjoys woodworking, like me.
2. Enjoys Altoids.
3. Needs to organize screws, nuts, and bolts, etc.

Regards,
Tim B.

If they don't, you'll have a pretty potent breath odor once you eat all those Altoids. :p

The last time I saw an Altoids tin was several years ago in the UK.
Is there a sugar-free version these days (like Hacks and Fisherman's Delight now have)?

Altoid gift boxes and after dinner mints for Thanksgiving and stocking stuffers for Christmas. Oh wait, is the gift for this Christmas?

The urbanlegends website suggests Altoids have other virtues than just breath mints.

Do you care if they are tins from different flavors (i.e. cinnamon vs. peppermint) or are you looking for only 1 flavor for consistency of color?

Great question.
At this point I don't care. I know that there are (at least) 3 flavors in the size tin that I want...Peppermint, Cinnamon, and Wintergreen.

Consistency of SIZE is the only thing that I mind about.

I didn't recognize them as a spammer. The question asked was consistent with the thread title. I should be more observant.

But then, since spammers are going to take over the world, is it really harmful to show them a little courtesy? :rofl:
