That is a totally unique design CRX. Amazing once again!

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

Funny, when I read “plumbers delight”, the first thing that came to my mind was the Fenix TK70… Old school…

Fantastic. Were you planning to make 3 spare heads?

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

All of your mods are awesome, and most go over my head with your skills. Although this one, in all its simplicity, is my favourite. Thanks for sharing. Beer

I’m not sure if the lights nuts or the guy building it. Regardless this has all gone down the s bend.
Seriously though, speechless. Well done.

CRX, you’re so very creative and talented! Thumbs Up

I’m wondering why you didn’t incorporate any magnets in this one, though. You usually do! Not saying that it needs one, of course. But, a coin size magnet in that tail would make it possible to hang it up to give area lighting in small places. Innocent

You sir are a master craftsman of flashlights. I’m impressed with all your builds, especially these itty bitty creations your coming up with.

Crikey.

I want it. I need it. I NEED IT I TELL YA!!!!

But, being the magnanimous chap I am, I’m wondering if a certain old plumber that you’re working with next week might love it even more if it’s sitting in his pocket getting warm and tarnished.

Of course, feel free to tell me to pish aff and mind my own business, but I am so lucky to personally know what a warm glow a person can get by owning one of your wonderful little jaw-dropping creations….. It’s still in my pocket mate, all the time….

All the best buddy and keep them coming.

Paul

Maybe a side clip to hold small one attached for a removable flooder mini-light Smile
