Hello From the Netherlands

Hi everybody,

I’m Bart from the south of the Netherlands.

My job is CNC milling/turning in a small company.

I was checking the Blf forum for many years now, and there has been a lot of usefull information i’ve gathered from here.

I also made several flashlights myself in the past few years. i enjoy that very much. (Pictures will come later)

modding flashlights is a hobby beside that too.

See you around.

Bart

Everything is moddable!

Ha Bart! Welkom!
Nice to see a dutch machinist over here. I’m curious about your own flashlight designs, and am already jealous of your equipment and skills!

Hoi Bart, heel erg welkom.
Nice we are joined by someone who can operate such awsome machinery.
As a longtime lurker we don’t have to warn you about the dangers of BLF.
For the amount of sleep you will be getting and for your wallet. Or do we?

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Welcome to BLF Yammie! Looking forward to seeing the flashlights you’ve made.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Agreed, those flashlights look really cool!
