Old lumens isn’t only the soul of BLF, the godfather of light modding, the Maestro of file work and grand pimp of maglites, he also happen to be an incredibly generous man with both his time and money, he gave away an insane number of flashlights and other items, treated us with countless modding threads and never kept a secret in the process spoiling us with the fruits of his ingenuity.
As you may know he is in trouble actually finding a job due to his age, as a man of many ressources he decided to create his own work and make good use of his great talent by offering customized lights and knives.
Thing is, he doesn’t have a lathe wich is perhaps the most usefull tool for a light modder, even if OL is renowned for being a human lathe, able to replicate lathe work with a few hand tools this really doesn’t compute with business where time is money.
Here is your opportunity to give back a little, let’s chip in and set the man up with a lathe suitable for his needs, that is a lathe in the 12” category at least, we probably need north of 2500$ (remains to be seen, something practical is required as there are a few constraints, we’ll advise)
If you wish to donate please say so below (you don’t have to tell how much you intend to pledge), this thread is just to raise awareness for the cause and assess our striking force, donations will probably go directly to a senior USA member of BLF, i’ll keep you updated about how to proceed.
This is happening !!!
