STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT
 The rights to this invention are not made under any federally sponsored research and/or development. Federal funds were not used to develop this invention.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
 The present invention relates to the field of tobacco smoking. In particular, the present invention relates to the field of cigar smoking and cigar smoking accessories.
BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
 This cigar aerator punches three holes in the end of a cigar, thus increasing the amount of airflow into the cigar. The result of such action is that the smoker of the cigar is able to control the amount of air into and through the cigar. This invention eliminates the need to cut off the end of a cigar or punch a hole in the end which not only leaves cigar pieces laying around but you can't control the air flow once a cutter or a punch has been used on the cigar. One can use the aerator to punch three holes into a cigar without mess and totally control the amount of air that flows into the cigar.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING
 FIG. 1 Working view--shows how to use the AERATOR. You hold the cigar with one hand and the Aerator with the other hand and punch three holes at one time. If you do not get the right air flow you can punch additional holes. When you use a punch or a cutter, you do not have this option. With the punch or cutter you have cigar pieces to discard and you do not have this with the Aerator.
 FIG. 2 shows the Aerator with cap.
 FIG. 3 shows how the punches look.
 FIG. 4 shows how the cap covers the punches to protect them.
 FIG. 5 shows the dimensions on the Aerator.
 FIG. 6 shows the dimension on the cap.
 The Aerator comes with a key ring.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
 The aerator is a cigar accessory used for cigar smoking. The aerator is a cylinder shaped device approximately 5/8 of an inch round with three points on one end to penetrate the end of a cigar. The aerator also can help control the amount of air that flows through the cigar. The aerator differs from a cutter and a punch also used for cigar smoking because once you punch the end or cut the end you can no longer control the amount of airflow. One only can hope its not to strong with that procedure. However, using my aerator one can use the three hole punch. And, if it s not enough, one can add more so one can control one's smoke. Also with the aerator one has no mess because one actually punches three holes into the cigar, whereas with a cutter or punch one always has the mess left over from the part of the cigar one just cut off.
 The first step in making the Cigar Aerator is design and thought in which one draws a print. The next step is--one gest a block of steel and cuts the design into it. One adds runner systems and ejectors so the parts come out of the mold. After completing this mold, which now houses the designed part, one then places it into a molding machine. The molding machine is a machine in which one takes small plastic pellets and the machine melts them down at about 500 degrees. The machine then has a barrel with a large screw inside which pushes the melted plastic out of the in or nozzle into the back of the mold. After the plastics have entered the mold and cooled, the mold opens up the machine ejects the part ant two pieces fall out which are the cap and the body of the aerator. The parts are then sent to a milling machine and a hole is drilled in the Cigar Aerator for the key ring. After the hole is drilled a key ring is placed on it and it is ready for delivery.
 The invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the spirit or essential characteristics thereof. The embodiments disclosed in this application are to be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive, the scope of invention being indicated by the appended claims rather than by the foregoing description, all changes that come within the meaning and range of equivalency of the claims are intended to be embodied herein.
