Sorry to hear you’ve hit a wall. This is an amazing build so far. Would like to have seen the end product.

That sucks, but it was great to see what you had done Thumbs Up

Maybe jam it back together & bypass the driver for direct drive?

There was more than one occasion Justin would start building or modding a torch only to have him say half way through that what he was trying to do could not be done and scrap the build in frustration only to come back to it at a later date and complete it. LOL

Bummer Jerommel…Don’t let it get you down… too much. I think it was a great idea, very innovative to say the least. So take a break and get back to it, start another one if this one can’t be saved, because I for one would like to see it done the way you intended it to be! Beer

Sorry for the troubles. I want to add my vote for you to finish this light some day, even though it isn’t in time for this year’s contest. It’s truly an amazing concept, and I’m sure it can work.
