Well done! Crown

I like your consistent style. The leather on the flashlight tube and the leather of the holster leave no doubt that this flashlight belongs in this holster. The copper bead of the lanyard matches the orange cord as well.


Thank you Wink

I tried to make things look like a “theme” with all the colours “matching” the overal set! I like orange and I think it was the best option for this mod, specially due to location/visualization aspects!

The holster is a plus but I thought it would fit well in the overall mod Wink

The only thing that is yet to be assembled is the GITD gasket that has been delivered today and that I will probably put in this light tonight to finish the mod Wink

Then…the beamshots Evil

Thanks mate Wink
Tried to do my best on that, even if sometimes I tend to mess up with too many photos Big Smile

BTW, the gasket was delivered at my home today! I’ll see it later and gonna put it on tonight Party
I’m happy Big Smile

That would be a nice thing to do Wink
But…for now I guess I will stay for the photos Silly It is easier than having a gathering here ATM Silly

I’m hoping for a sunny day and dark night to show you the “last” photos of this build tomorrow Blushing

Yesterday I received the last pieces for my mod Wink
From CRX arrived a GITD gasket and a GITD tube (along with other stuff Love ) and as soon as I got them I installed them Party

The installation took me a while because the optics were not fitting the MCPCB very well, so I has to pull the MCPCB up, install the optic + gasket, and then “unglue” the driver to pull the wires down again. Then I mounted the head and glued the driver again Wink

I also installed the GITD tube in the holster adding an extra piece of thinner “paracord” in 2 empty holes. I opted to put it in that place because it will help me on locating the holster if needed.

Later I will try to take some photos of the all “modding” set Wink But for now…enjoy Big Smile

Looks very nice, good job MascaratumB!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Thank you all for looking and for your comments folks Wink
And thank you for the inspiration that directly or indirectly you’ve been giving to me and to BLF member along time! “Drinking” from your knowledge and from your builds and mods was something that also helped me through this small modding path Wink

The process of modding the Amutorch VG10 is now finalized!

In this post you’ll find (many) photos of the final products and also my balance of it! Big Smile

I will also pick my initial modding aims and check what was done and what was not Silly
Here:

This flashlight was: How I wanted it to be? What it is!
– Forward Tail Switch
- Black rubber tailcover
- 4 + 1 mode UI (L-M-H-T + SOS, w/ memory)
- 23 mm driver (chips on top, long spring below, brass ring on the edges)
- XML2 U4-1A Led (Cool White)
- Smooth reflector
- Non AR Coated Lens
- Detachable Pocket clip (reversible, not deep carry)
- “Tactical” ring
1- Forward Tail Switch
2- Orange or Green tail cover
3- Bistro UI
4- 22 mm driver
5- 4 x Samsung LH351D 5000K 90 CRI or 4 Luxeon V 4000K 70CRI
6- Noctigon or Led4power MCPCB
7- Carclo 10622 or 10621
8- Titanium Stainless Steel pocket clip
9- Leather handle
10- Glowing gasket
11- GITD piece inlaid in the tailcap
12- some extras to be thought Silly
1- DONE
2- DONE (Orange)
3- DONE (configured on mode 9)
4- DONE
5- DONE (Luxeon V)
6- DONE (led4power)
7- DONE (Carclo 10622)
8- DONE
9- DONE (call it “sleeve”)
10- DONE
11- DONE (orange tritium vial)
12- DONE (copper bead + lanyard, wood support, holster)

From this to that!

____________________________________________________
MY BALANCE

What can I say?
It turned out better than I could have thought! Smile
In the beginning I had the intention to modify a flashlight, and then I ended up modding it and “building” some other stuff creating a set.
Some important points from this process where I:

  • used several tools I had used before and bought new ones and learned how to use them;
  • borrowed my father’s help and tools in one occasion;
  • worked with materials I never used before, specially leather and waxed thread;
  • made some “stitchery” in MtnDon’s words (sewing and stitching) to make the flashlight sleeve;
  • made a copper bead;
  • installed a tritium vial for the 1st time;
  • recycled an old belt to make a holster;
  • recurred to BLF members as suppliers of materials for the mod;
  • had to improvise to get the job done;
  • ..had fun and learned Wink

This is it! It’s done now Party

____________________________________________________

Now, some photos of the flashlight, the wood support and the holster, and also the beam and the glowing parts Wink

Beam Profile!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to test it outside, so here are some inside beamshots! (WB 5000K)

To make these beamshots I temporarily configured the flashlight on the mode 8 (8 levels) + moonlight, so below you have 9 beamshots showing the progression of luminosity.
The battery used was a not fully charged Sony VTC6 3000mAh, unprotected.

With a luxmeter, just to show the evolution Wink

In the wood support Big Smile Note the orangish/reddish glow that comes out of the wood support after the light is shut off Blushing

Some beamshots comparing the modded Amutorch VG10 to the:
Skilhunt M150 w/ Luxeon V2 5000K (left) and the Lumintop Tool AA V2.0 Panda White w/ Luxeon V2 3000K (right)

Wuben T050R w/ Samsung LH351D 5000K (left) and the Emisar D4 w/ XP-G2 S4-3D ~5000K (right)


The glowing on the light and the holster. Despite dim, if compared to a green one, the tritium vial is quite nice and in pitch black environment helps to find the flashlight, which is the its main purpose Wink

____________________________________________________

And now, some glamour photos of the set! Love


Thanks for the all the comments and tips given here, and thanks for the opportunity to participate in the Old Lumens Flashlight Modders & Builders Challenge 2019 !

I also would like thank to CRX, kiriba-ru, led4power and Lexel for providing invaluable pieces for this mod: without their work, this mod wouldn’t be possible as I imagined it, and I wouldn’t have in hands a dreamed flashlight !!! Blushing Crown

To the other contestants involved and still on the run, good luck and good work on your builds and mods, and let’s show how BLF works Cool

Peace & Light! Thumbs Up

Nice sum up MascaratumB. I’ve enjoyed following your post from start to finish. Its nice to see the other members hear chip in with parts. Thumbs Up
Did you get any odd looks when you were taking pictures on what looks like the side walk?

Thanks for following it an giving your appreciation here Wink That is also part of the spirit Wink (although I subscribed all the entries this year, I can’t follow and comment them all Tired )

Well, about the odd looks…I took those photos in my lunch break in the parking lot of my workplace, outside. My girlfriend was with me, so I guess that it helped avoiding the odd looks a little bit Silly
She actually gave me some ideas and took the photo with the holster on my jeans Blushing
Except for my friends that probably thought I was crazy… Well…maybe not , as they know me for some years now Big Smile

Again, thank you for your comments Wink

Hey CNCman, thank you Wink
Well, as I said above, when the mod is “simple” (although with many ‘small’ things), the photos need to fill the eyes Big Smile
I am sure that you and the other modders (and builders) are capable and will do much better than what I did!

However, I am proud of it, I love the final result and I tried to do it (the mod and the thread) mostly as an experience and not so much as part of the “contest”.

It was like making the review of a flashlight, but in many phases, and learning a lot during the process Wink

I am also looking to the lumens data and beam on yours Evil

Thanks for looking! Thumbs Up

I like the way you summarized all the results, what you have done and what you have learned. I think this is the way that the OL contest is meant to work. Crown

You have got a homemade custom flashlight with high-end look now. Cool idea to take some outdoor pictures.

Seeing your beamshots I think that one of my next quads will feature the Luxeon V 4000K. Nice flood and tint! Cool

I tried to show precisely that, my process and learning. Others’ would be different, but this was the possible way for me Silly

About the beamshots, hopefully tonight I will take some outdoor photos and I’ll post them later!

I haven’t tried outdoor so I may be surprised as well!
The beam and the tint of these leds are probably the best or second best in my lights! (Wuben TO50R is probably the best Smile )

I’ll show it later!!
Thanks for looking Wink

Eheh, the mod has probably taken less time than taking photos and writing, I confirm Big Smile

So, the mod was finished, but the thread is not! And an important thing was missing, if you know my style! Evil

The night beamshots were missing, and…that’s what I’ll show below Wink

I must say one thing: I got surprised myself!! Shocked
The beam and tint of this flashlight is absolutely gorgeaus! It is possible that the photos don’t actually show how it looks in real “life”!

Floody but has a longe range, and the tint…simply perfect! I don’t miss High CRI leds when using Luxeon V Leds and this flashlight has only proven that even more! It is soft and smooth to the eyes, very pleasant even when the light is on full power!

It really makes me happy to have this final result!
The rest… see yourself below Wink

Trees at 20m

House at 16m

Big building at 50m and tower at 65m

1st house at 87m and the farthest at 160m

House is at 175m Wink

Tallest house is at 195m!

And this is all!
I think it is pretty impressive but let me know what you think Silly

I can tell you that if I ever had to sell my lights to pay for food, this light would not be sold after all Wink
The host is perfect for a quad version and I guess it worked pretty well despite all Cool

Hey, thanks EDSG Wink
Your light also turned our very nicely Wink Great work!

About the holster, recycling materials is something that can be quite nice and this one turned out quite “pretty” (although double tape is not the best option in terms of longevity Silly )
