I admire your modding abilities, I can’t lie…but since I don’t have an SRK and the good ones are hard to find, then I’ll be really happy to own this one !
BTW, really nice creation, once again !!!

I'm quoting part of the PM I've sent to CRX, cause I don't want to write a simple "THANK YOU"!

Unbelievable! Shocked

I'm really stunned and extremely happy Stevi! PartyPartyParty

This is the most "one of a kind" gift I ever got, besides the drawings of my kids when they were younger.laughing I really don't know if I'm gonna have it on me all the time this wonderfull handmade flashlight, or I'm gonna put it at the best place in my home, as a trophy for everybody to see!

Can't thank you enough... really...

 

BTW, I saw in the last pics you've added the tool you've made to pull the magnetic removable battery carrier. Very simple, yet very-very clever! Thumbs Up

Yeah it got that today along with a brass bezel insert. The battery carrier can be removed by holding the light and hitting your hands together, as if getting ketchup out of a bottle but i thought someone else might prefer something a little more eloquent Big Smile

Well, you ‘ve got me once more mate. I don’t like ready ketchup, never use it. Too industrial/vulgar for my taste! Silly

BTW, congrats to DavidEF and Serp! Thumbs Up
I totally forgot to congratulate you, as I was too excited before. Innocent

Woohoo! I’m just now checking in to BLF for the first time today and I see I’ve won! Thanks CRX and congrats to the other two winners evankouros and Serp! I’m really impressed with the handmade light, but I’m still glad that I chose the SRK because I have never owned one.

CRX's Carbon Fibre & Brass Flashlight arrived a couple of days ago (Jan. 16). Stevi air-mailed the package -as registered- last year, before X'mas. We were hoping I could have it for new year's eve (we were tracking it everyday), but because of the crazy X’mas period for postage carriers it arrived a little late (note: CRX was more worried for it's arrival than I was LOL ).

My impression with very few words:

  • It's a unique piece of art!

As I was thinking from the moment CRX informed that I'm the lucky guy of his 1000 posts GAW for his handmade Carbon Fibre & Brass Flashlight (I named it CRX-1000p), I really don't know if I'm gonna have it on me all the time, or I'm gonna put it at the best place in my home, as a piece of art to admire! (Most probably that's what I'm gonna do.)

 

The day my CRX-1000p arrived, my first impression was that it had very good/protective package.

Just take a glance how well made the hard carton box was: tailor-made to protect everything perfectly (wishful thinking: if everyone could make packages like CRX...).

 

I was very surprised to see not only CRX-1000p in the box, but even more amazing items!

 

Here are the basic parts of CRX-1000p

 

 

Some pictures of the unexpected CooYoo (@CRX please explain your DIY interventions):

  

Making such a brief presentation was the least I thought I could do to thank CRX and show my deep and honest appreciation. I only hope that my photos (for more see gallery) and description are decent enough.

 

@CRX:

Stevi, I really appreciate your great handmade gift with it's unique personality. One more simple "thanks" is not enough my friend!

Hey cool, I am very happy that you like the gifts and thank you for posting a very nice response here Thumbs Up
Yes i must admit i did have thoughts of some customs inspector pocketing it as it was held for two weeks with no progress Innocent

I do usually add an extra or two with my packages Wink
The titanium mini cutter i’ve had for a while but never used so thought someone else might find it’s purpose, i don’t think that particular one is made anymore.

The cooyoo, well that’s been through a few different iterations in it’s life.
First i stole the charger board to use in my Brass dual flashlight build

Then it was a momentary switched light, then…
Now it is a mule flashlight with a forward tail clicky switch with variable QTC pill, XM-L2 4C emitter on 10mm copper sinkpad, brass lined head & positive contact with graphite aesthetics, the tail switch is made of magnets for your annoyance or convenience LOL
I didn’t know if you had a charger for 10180 cells so the tp4056 charger board is set to a low current for them.

CRX-1000p – i like that Smile

@CRX:

I'm really glad you liked my brief presentation Stevi. Smile  I hope everyone who reads it will get an idea for your great piece of art. Thumbs Up 

I didn't have a charger for 10180 cells, so thanks for thinking/making/gifting! Party BTW, how low have you set the current to tp4056 and what's your estimation for CooYoo's Lm output? (I'm not asking for CRX-1000p, cause it's very impressive Shocked )

 

@giorgoskok:

Thanks for your kind words, though my brief presentation can't be compared to your great flashlight reviews! Cool

Sweet kit!

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

I think it’s around 60mA

I really have no idea with it being a warm tinted mule, i think it’s time i got a testing setup Blushing but maybe around 200 to 300 emitters lumens on full.

I haven’t been back here to say that I got my package a while back, but I had already sent CRX a PM. I’m really enjoying the SRK. My package also came with an extra bit of goodness. CRX sent me a BLF-348 modded to a direct-drive MT-G2 mule, including the two 10180 cells needed to run it! Here’s a post showing some pics of the mod. I couldn’t find any build threads about it. It’s crazy bright and turning it on is giggle-inducing. LOL
