Bienvenue au BLF! Smile

Toronto is still on my wishlist for one of the next trips to Canada. I’ve met some great people in Québec and Montréal a couple of years ago and had some of my best holiday experiences at all.

I'll give you my flashlight when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Ouch. I’m still a Habs fan but it’s hard being one these days…
With the Tavares signing, the Leafs will have a deadly offense. I love their lineup but i’m just unable to cheer for them.

Back to OP… welcome to BLF Sam Lee !

Welcome aboard Sam. Have you checked out the work of a machinist name Fritz from TLF who is working jointly with the BLF brain trust (ToyKeeper and others) to develop the FW3A TLF/BLF triple LED flashlight? I have signed up for two, and look forward to the finished product. I very much appreciate the good hard work of Fritz, Toykeeper, DEL, Tom E, The Miller, Pepinfaxera, MRsDNF, Neal, Lumintop, and others in this project!

We need three things in life: something to do, something to look forward to, and someone to love.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

My first projects will be a couple 3D Maglites, with MR16 triple emitters.
Similar to: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/16042#node-16042
Looking for suitable drivers.
Any suggestions ?

Welcome to BLF Sam Lee! You have a lathe and a mill? Looking forward to seeing a Sam Lee original flashlight. Smile

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