!{width:100%}!

that’s my light staging area, there are a few missing (two edc’s, bedroom light, some that are out of sight of mrs gords etc )

I tend to use the same two lights for my work edc’s, one on my lanyard with my h03 and my d5 in my screwdriver pocket, mini 02 and srm h02 on my house keys, then my off duty hours pouch has an en01 and xiozhi loaded.

When we move house I’m going to have a cabinet in the gords cave to keep most of my lights and knives, keep them out of both mrs gords’ way and out of little fingers that my end up hurting themselves (both my boys seem to like turning hard driven xm-ls on to high tgen shining them in their eyes).

mrs gords bought it, got about a chapter in, then got in a chat with some rather scruffy distant step aunts who were all raving about it. she threw it on the shelf in disgust and there its lay ever since lol.

to better put those shelves into perspective

and this is more representative of gords literature

I need another one of those bookcases for my warhammer collection too.

Me, I use an old messenger bag type laptop bag. Tongue Out

Which holds most of them. Well, the majority of them. 

 

Or something.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I do like any light who’s form remind me of a 3d maglite, guess I’m a traditionalist at heart, I also like my convenient sized lights I regularly carry.

That blue one is a nice host, their available in cherry red too and have pretty good machining to be honest.

Perhaps another blf giveaway sometime in the future.

You can’t see most of my smaller lights as their either in pockets or my day sack or tool boxes lol, the big ones are shelf Queens till I get out camping again tbh

There is a big difference!! One involves looking at people’s bodies, the other is looking at words.

The one right of the a8 is the uniquefire c108. It’s my c8 host.
The one all the way to the right is the energized ultimate 2xAA
I would like the shelf a lot more if it was just wide enough for my zy-t13 with the collimator head lol

Woah hold up, that’s a small sun?? With crelant head??? Didn’t know that swapped worked. That’s cool.

Been considering a zy-t13 to resistor mod. That would be badass with the collimator.

I measured 155k lux average with an xre ez1000, stock driver, and crelant head. I only checked at two and three meters so far though, might focus better at longer distance.

Edit: it’s not a perfect match though. You need to back the head off a little to get it focused. If you tighten it all the way it will be out of focused a little. With the xre, I have to back it off about 1/16 or so

Damn that’s cool. Had no idea they were same size and threads. Awesome.

Did you try it with XML at all or just XRE?

No I didn’t. Once I get my intl outdoor order I can try it with a t6 and let you know.
Search zy-t13 aspheric mod, and it should pop up with my thread on that light

I copied Dale’s idea. My flashlight collection just isn’t as many so I had some of my knives displayed at the bottom.

One of these would be a good alternative to the benchmade box, about $169 in Australia.
