Most memorable thread for me is OL’s thread on building your own copper star with copper and kapton tape. Although it is easier to use a premade board now, it can still be handy if you needed a custom size. It also is a great “educational” thread.

Sorry ryansoh3, I could remember the most memorable experience, because this is an awesome forum and I have every week some great experiences. Great reviews from other members,  nice comments for the own reviews, a lot of modding knowledge and helpfulness. I like this forum really much.

Light up the darkness.

Most memorable for me was finally moving from extra cheap sub $5 flashlights, after reading and lurking a lot to the real things like Convoy L4 Smile

Over two years ago, I googled for latest LED light and found Don’s beamshot comparison in the woods. After picking up my jaw from the floor, I recollected myself and started reading BLF in more depth. Soon after I joined in the fun.

A lot of experience from BLF after that but the original still tops the list. Smile

It sounds like the XM LEDs won’t really be suitable for flashlight use. Pity…

For me it has to be either Cone talking smack about something he didn’t want to supply pictures for, or the whole tacticool story/thread.

My most memorable time with BLF is when I was looking for lights for volunteer first responders and found how helpful the people around here are.

My most memorable experience was just finding this forum. I had tried a few that were slightly less than friendly, and I had no ‘finger on the pulse’ of what the problem was. This site became my ‘gateway’ to a modest flashlight addiction, starting with my venerable Romisen RC-N3.

My most memorable day was first finding this Forum, and discovering there are others to collect or build lights as a hobby, and spending 4 hours browsing through the many topics and photos.

That Canadian flashlight guy & Lantern Guru -Den / DBSARlight

… is every time I have a question, an issue, am searching for a new light, etc..

Being new to the hobby, BLF has made it a whole lot easier and more fun. NOt sure if torches would still be a hobby for me without BLF!

There will always be more darkness than I have lights.

My favorite thing about this forum is the kindness and generosity of the other members. You really can’t help getting involved and helping others out when you can.

Thanks for the chance.

Most memorable moment was finding out how to reflow and getting it right first time :bigsmile:
Even get to do it again since I gave it to much power for the host to handle for an extended time, the led is now at an angle, presumably hopefully, the solder melted Party

Cheers David

Nothing to see here folks, move along...

The forum is great in general. Interactions here is great in general and a not too prominent admin throwing around bans and locking threads etc and acting not so NORMally…

Thanks for the giveaway!

Never ever forget and forgive. Niwal**er new kid on the block trying to act tough.
