Judging the entries:

A panel of Judges composed of current BLF members from all walks of life and from different countries will judge the build entries to the competition.

What criteria do we Judge the contestants on?

  • Skill Level/ Finished Build Quality: Judged fairly on the persons access to tools, materials and abilities. Is the finished build functional & looking good? Difficult to make? Was the build completed, started or no work done at all?
  • Uniqueness/ Innovativeness of the build: Is the light unique, one of a kind or does it operate in a special way?
  • Build Thread Quality: Did the contestant do a good job of showing and explaining to the forum how they did the steps in the build? Good thread organization, pictures and descriptions of the methods used?
  • Purpose Built: Was the light purpose built for a specific use? Is it a special new EDC, upgrade or something for use that simply can't be bought easily?
  • Technical Details: Including new driver firmware, PCB designs, new technical ideas, programming and special switches etc.
  • Problem Solving & Obstacles: Were any specific problems encountered, documented and resolved by the contestant? Documenting the obstacles and using the power of the BLF community to solve them is seen as a big plus!
  • Enthusiasm to Participate: Did the contestant give it their best shot even knowing they would be up against more skilled veterans? Did they support other contestants build threads by posting encouragement and even giving help?
  • Following the Guidelines: Did the contestant follow the rules and guidance given?
  • Shown Operational: Did the contestant show us the light operating, its functions, beamshots, videos etc?

     

Some history of how the yearly contest started:

Old-Lumens was a predominant member of Budget Light Forum who loved to make things, particularly flashlights and related items, with his own hands.

He went even further and encouraged others to do likewise by starting the annual Old-Lumens Contest which involves members making their own flashlight using only hand tools in one category or machines in another.

Sadly Justin (Old-Lumens) passed away in 2016, we here at BLF wish him to rest in peace and to continue to celebrate his life by hosting the yearly Old-Lumens Competition.

 

We thank the sponsors for their generosity, and would like to see members supporting their business.
Please look to them when purchasing quality lights and accessories:

            

                  

 

                       

                       


If you are a store owner who would like to donate a prize or have good relations to people that would like to support this great BLF community event then please contact us.

 

Well done for completing and showing your builds!  Wink Thumbs Up

Old Lumens 2019 contest results with some of the judges comments collected on each of the builds:

Hand Made Category:

01 - gchart

H - gchart
The finish and extra little personal touches on this make it really stand out, and also the wireless charging, a first I believe?
Fantastic effort, well done!
Really amazing . Excellent use of current technology.
Wow, he just gets better and better each year. Seriously impressive circuit wizardry, fantastic planning with the 3D-printed mock-up.
A very strong contestant.

.
02 - MtnDon

H - MtnDon
Beautiful workmanship here.
There's just something nice about this one.
Amazing attitude. Way to go Don!
.

03 - YuvalS

H - YuvalS
I loved this build, yes it could be better finished, but I love it for it's roughness, it looks like Yuval 'fought' it out of materials lol.
How he made it in some of those locations, I have no idea!
I love the industrial-chic look. Smile Again, *impressive* work with the driver and circuitry.
If I needed to wear a hard hat, I think I'd want this light on it.
.

04 - Asian8640

H - Asian8640Very impressive first showing! Nice looking, and impressive electrical knowledge.
Pretty and functional.

.
05 - Kame Sennin

H - Kame Sennin
Great looking, and impressive technical expertise with the driver.
Handmade inductors get some extra problem solving points here.
I really enjoyed the driver studies. And the finished light looks so good.
.

06 - everydaysurvivalgear

H - everydaysurvivalgear
Really glad he made time for doing this build, he never disappoints! Tasmanian oak, so cool.
Definitely improving with each entry.
.

07 - HandOnTheGlock

H - HandOnTheGlock
I really appreciated the approach to waterproofing. More experienced builders skipped this part because it is normally uneasy.
Not beautiful, but serves a purpose and great attitude by the participant.

.

Machine Made Category:

01 - grin

M - grin
What can I say. My fave, he went the extra mile on this one. Virtualluy everything is own made.
The sheer amount of blood and sweat that went into it was huge and the result is fantastic.
A well thought-out, classic design.
Insanity! Did he just out-GT the BLF GT?? This thing is beautiful and amazing.
I want it.

M - PinkPandaAn interesting use of unusual materials and great crasftsmanship of all the parts made.
One of a kind.
Wow! That's a real looker, extremely unique. Amazing skills and a great attitude.

.
03 - MRsDNF

M - MRsDNFLooks OEM and performs better than OEM.
Extremely positive and helpful in all the other participants' build threads.

.
04 - alpg88

M - alpg88Very unique and loved the end result - totally different to everyone elses.
Enjoyed watching it come along, and seeing how 3d printers worked very well for this, bonus for the blf branding.
Unique , clever , and original.
Another really nice 3D printed project, also took a lot of skill to get those angles right.

.
05 - JoshK

M - JoshkOut-of -the-box thinking at it's best . Well executed.
I really like his goal of generating enthusiasm for 3D printing so more people give it a shot in next year's contest.
Very innovative. Really exceeds what I would expect from 3D printing.

.

Modified Light Category:

01 - Skylight

z - SkylightOne more perfect thread example. Simple and effective.
Got lumens? Very cool.
Brilliant! This guy has some serious technical skills, really pushes the bounds on what a "modded" flashlight can be.
Flawless execution, real prowess and planning for the internals, great sense of aesthetics.
I had never considered that the MT18S and L6 could be hybridized. I'd use this light.

.
02 - MascaratumB

z - MascaratumBHis build thread should go to the BFL library and should be linked as reference for future contests.
Thread quality is amazing.
What a pleasant surprise!
Totally unique, amazing aesthetics, absolutely moved the bar in what we can expect from modified lights.
Relatively speaking showed impressive technical and aesthetic skills.

.
03 - CNCman

z - CNCmanVery clean work and great results.
Another huge surprise!
Was expecting a simple driver swap, and here he makes custom machined components and de-domes it, the works!
Fairly practical set of changes to a well-known light. I'd use this.

.
04 - The Whispering

z - The WhisperingBlinded by science!
I'm very impressed with the electronics knowledge and analysis seen here from someone with no background in electronics.
The mod seemed easy at first. Not so much, the effort that went into it is really impressive.

.
05 - Flashy Mike

z - Flashy MikeClever and fun.
Why weren't there 3D printers when I was a kid?

.
06 - lumenzilla

z - lumenzillaBeautiful results.
I love it, should be encouraging to others that don't have special technical skills, but even so a lot was achieved.

.
07 - teejay

z - teejayTotally unique idea, and props for entering the contest and finishing on time!

.

We look forward to your continued support for future events and a big thank you from us to everyone involved  Thumbs Up

I would love to do a build for this contest. But I need to know if my 3D printer is allowed. I draw all my own parts from scratch. I assume a 3D printer is allowed as long as the models are your own creation?

Yep, we had one last year (and it was super interesting). That’s a good question about what category it belongs in, I assume “machine made”, but maybe one of the organizers could chime in.

What type of printer is it?

Standard 3D printers are fine and a new build would enter into the Machine Made category Thumbs Up

My guess would be that it would fall under machine made, comparable to someone designing parts and using a CNC machine. But hopefully we can get an official ruling.

I’m sure if you 3d-print something that’s otherwise allowed to be an “off-the-shelf” part, like a switch boot or centering ring, that would be fine. My real question is, where does the 3-Doodler fall? It seems like a hand tool to me Silly

That is a good question, maybe a smart thing to do if concerned about this would be to build and fully document the build from start to finish then if you’re happy with it make a build thread and release it in stages.

It doesn’t really matter how the build thread is released to the public as long as the work is done within the stated timeframe but allowing some comments from members is a good idea in between stages of the build I think.

It’s a FlashForge Creator Pro. So it’s FFF, the most standard printer type there is.

Yes you should enter. You cant enter when the times up. Sad
We all wreck things now and then. Crying
In some ways we are all idiots here so no need to feel special. Party
