Sometimes I wonder whether you have a real job Wink Or do you just design, develop, engineer and craft flashlights all day Big Smile

These are wonderful! Thank you for sharing.

Is that a smear of the blood of the artist I see on the “bezel” nut? Another fantastic build.

I hate to admit it CRX but you are a somewhat talented Scotsman! I am a “Knucklehead” that really admires your work.

I have one of your earlier Brass Nutz and it’s brilliant and one of my all time favorite lights.

Does your inspiration come from your constant consumption of great Scottish whiskey or your Scots penny-pinching?
