You are completely out of this world with this build CRX, and the fastest modder out there. That build took you half a day??

Great zoomie, man!

The king of brass strikes once again! Seriously good looking build. What keeps the lens slide in place? Is there an o-ring tucked in there for friction like the SK-68 has?

I love carbon fibre stuff, it’s actually way more affordable than I originally though.

CRX, you are like a magician! You think of it and “poof”, there it is. Excellent work.

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

Thanks, it is very thin copper that works as the slide stop, you can see the detail in the picture with the red line marking on the brass tube.

It has become a lot cheaper over the years, I bought a 500mm x 14mm tube for £8, the cars are still a bit pricey though Smile

Then it will need a deep red led (650nm).
