I got this floor lamp today.

floor_lamp

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-Torchiere-Floor-Lamp-Silver/199407642

 

It's a very simple on/off floor lamp for $16.59.

It's 5 feet 11 inches tall, and I really like it.

Instead of shopping on Amazon all the time, like I usually do, I should check out Walmart.com as well because sometimes they have the best deal.

This lamp is exactly what I was looking for, and it was pretty cheap to boot.  :THUMBS-UP:

I’ve got a 10-pack of these:

These are my first lights of this kind. I am positively surprised by their quality. And that they have a dual action switch, momentary and toggle.
One has a rngwn LED already.

Cool! They should be comparable in performance to the KW CSLNM1-TG. Let us know your experience with them!

What is the Osram letter soup name for this emitter?

Thanks! Just found it too. Looks similar to a 3030 solder footprint with a non-neutral thermal pad.. Need an anodized shelf if using DTP mcpcb.

I remember that when I saw it I was like “200 mA max? meh”.
Now I see that it actually has the same thermal resistance as Boost HL despite a smaller package.

Few things I picked up in the last week. Nothing super interesting. Horrible photo though. The lighting in this house isn’t all that great. Guess I should probably do something about that. Big Smile

I think I see a UF-T1, DQG Slim AA, a Leatherman Wave, and some kind of bolt-action pen (probably titanium). What kind of pen and knives?

 

And good taste - I own a wave, UF-T1, and DQG Slim AA Wink

The pen is a CoolHand Ti. A parker Gel refill makes it pretty good. It came with a Schmidt medium ball point that wrote very good as well. The little knife is a Two Sun TS128-UP and the Purple Ti handled one is a Stedemon DSM 2015. It’s a pretty large knife but, carries pretty well, as long as it’s the only thing in that particular pocket. Smile

yup, mouser. But do be aware of the non-neutral thermal pad.

I’m aware, thanks! I think it will go into my Jacob A60 that currently has a CSLNM1. This light has an anodized emitter shelf so its perfect. As is, the light is seeing 234kcd running a 12× 7135 driver. I think they are all 350mA chips.. But would have to check that. I’ve tuned and measured this light dozens of times so I’m confident in my readings. I’ll report my results with the ‘BFSLOL

The Two Sun somehow reminds me of the Buck Vantage Avid knives, nice shape.

Today I got a 1955 Leitz Ortholux with double lamps, for transmission and epi-illumination, including the Ultropak attachment for the epi-illumination with 11x objective. All in fine shape, well preserved and working well. I bought it via Marktplaats, which is a friendly dutch version of ebay.

It is because my other hobby is collecting cool microscopes. And although I like the antique copper microscopes, I have a few nice ones, nothing compares to what they made in Germany in the fifties and sixties. The Ortholux is IMO the Cool -est microscope ever built, but thusfar missing in my line-up. Apart from the fact that it is mechanics at its finest, no plastic is found anywhere and all the mechanics still work without play after 65 years, it is not just function, it has a really cool fifties design, and it is a huge plump black thing Love

I’ll admit I haven’t seen anything like it. Pretty cool indeed!

These seems to be expensive items. Do you collect them or use them professionally?

I collect them. I did work as a technician in a microscopy development lab for 10 years (for who is into these things, the first working confocal microscope was invented by my boss where I worked), but that was over 20 years ago. I paid 400 euro for this Leitz, which is not that much more expensive than the GT4 that I also own Wink . But microscopes are too big to buy at the same rate as flashlights, given our small Amsterdam appartment, and the “limited Innocent “ enthousiasm of my wife for my hobbies, I get away with a max of one microscope every two years. And I might have to sell one or two now to make room for the Ortholux Facepalm
