My entry http://budgetlightforum.com/node/70304 I had been planning this anyway and thought it would be an appropriate build seeing as the idea came from Old Lumens.

Ok, I need to get started on mine but (embarrassing as it is) I don’t remember where to post it!

I’ve gathered materials after sitting down and drawing a napkin sketch, so I pretty much know what I’m going to do just haven’t started yet… be doing good to remember where I left the lathe. Silly

My entry is listed now… http://budgetlightforum.com/node/70368

Subscribed and generally read (very diagonal…) all the building /modding threads!

Great ideias, great skills everyone! In the impossibility to keep track on each and every thread, I hereby compliment you all for the ideas and work done so far Wink

@ pinkpanda, great “small” build you have there! Impressive gorgeous light Blushing

Question…
With an entry in the machine made category would it be a problem if I ALSO made a thread in the modified light category?

I have something in mind that would be appropriate there… Smile

Right near the top of the first post it states, “All skill levels are very welcome and you can enter into one of the categories below:”

I’d like to inform that my mod for the 2019 OL Contest is officially finished!
The modding post with a summary of the mod is on this link: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1596051#comment-1596051
And this is the “final post” with the completed “products”: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1624573#comment-1624573

______

Thanks for the all the comments and tips given, and thanks for the opportunity to participate in the Old Lumens Flashlight Modders & Builders Challenge 2019 !

I also would like thank to CRX, kiriba-ru, led4power and Lexel for providing invaluable pieces for this mod: without their work, the mod wouldn’t be possible as I imagined it, and I wouldn’t have in hands a dreamed flashlight !!! Blushing Crown

To the other contestants involved and still on the run, good luck and good work on your builds and mods, and let’s show how BLF works Cool

Peace & Light! Thumbs Up

Thank you pinkpanda Wink
Well, when the skills to make a “great mod” lack…one has to amuse the eyes with other stuff, right? Big Smile

Hi,
could you please add my contest entry to the modified light category:
Flashy Mikes Entry to The Old Lumens Modified Light Contest

Sorry for being so late but I was not able to join earlier. This years’ contest appears to be special, there are so many beautiful builds and mods, and I really don’t want to miss it. I hope I’ll be able to finish my mod on time.

Just sit back and relax YuvalS Beer Nothing really to do until the prize winners get announced which could be a few weeks. Comp closes in a week and judges finalize their decisions after that.
