Looks good ! Very unique
Thank you pinkpanda3310 Well, it surely is different thing, and although not perfect, it has a different taste than the last one Surely more on the budget side too
Thank you Henk4U2 I bet the king would have liked to have one of these in his collection of artifacts! But then he’d the “flashlight king” and not the “Sun King”
Ahaha, thank you Blahblahblahhuh Well, this is a challenge for you, as I know the modding bug has bitten you too! So…will we see you in next year?
Thank you everydaysurvivalgear Won’t you join the competition this year mate?
BTW, my girlfriend said it looked like a small photography camera and even tried to “flash” me
Thank you drewski Well the name could have been better, but I tried to transform the “joule thief” into “jewl” Not the best conversion , but it will do the job
Thank you Rdubya18 Well, I guess it will be really unique as I don’t want to burn my fingers again with the hot glue
At least I tried something different than what I am used to do and it was a good challenge
Cool! A night light too
Ahah, improvised, but yes
This is the time I wish I used a different LED, warmer at least!
But not being its primordial function, it will only be that way if/when needed
Lots more content, yes. Love the torch. I’d be careful taking it camping as it will camouflage into the surroundings.
Thank you MRsDNF
Well, that is a great advice!!! I’d hate losing it in the “woods” But this will probably stay inside, I don’t want it exposed to the weather, specially water
Very nicely done! I’m glad to see that you ended up in the contest after all.
Ahah, thanks gchart
Well, I modded some pieces of wood after all
So, what do you say about the “gchart’ed” collection of lights?
I think they’re brilliant!
Ahah, and long lasting!
Thanks again for your work on these
Nice one MB! I like your distinct styling
You ran into the same trouble as me, using a forbidden flashlight part that ruled out joining the handmade category. But in the end the important thing is that lots of special lights are made and documented.
Nice job MascaratumB, I really like how it turned out - also that it kinda pairs with last years, maybe next year we will see the 3rd instalment?
I love hand made lights that look hand made, and you can see the effort and thought that went into them - well done Sir!
Yeah, I was not completely aware that a pre-made pill was not allowed when I started so I needed to move my light into a new category. After a “giving-up” moment
I guess that my “mod” is not perfect, but it has been a user (on my bedside table) and I quite liked this new experience
Well, I guess I’ll aim for some kind of “trilogy”, making something “rooted in wood” in the next year I’ll start to plan the next year’s build (as a build, not a mod)
And yeah, this was hand made as hell, that hot glue in my fingers was somehow painful and funny at the same time
It is rustic
This is pretty. Square and pocketable.
Yup, quite compact in case I wanna carry it with me somewhere. But this is my “emergency” light in the bedside table, as it is laying down and that way I can easily access the switch to switch it on in the middle of the night without making it fall
Still, if needed, it is carryable
BTW, I was thinking…if I had a different driver, I would definitely make this light something better, more modes, different led choice! Maybe next year
