The 6th Annual BLF / Old Lumens Scratch Made Light Contest

Yeah, I’m not a fan of that proposal for several reasons. Most obvious is that part of the contest is to get it done during the time frame.

The people have spoken

Bump to keep this on the front page.

:beer: BUMP

Is there a thread where I can see past winners, like a Trophy Thread ?
I may not enter this yr because I was unaware this existed and thus am ill prepared with no reflector in hand.
But I may still try. :beer:

Inside you’ll find links for the lights entering the “contest” each year :wink:

” MascaratumB ” :beer: Thank You, I’m checking them out now :+1:

I needed to see the previous competition, so far they have Great Imagination. :beer:

I would love to enter the contest for the first time. I have some very interesting things in mind but there is too much to figure out to have it done in this timeframe… And I will probably dont have enough time anyway.

I will follow this, and good luck to the participants.

:+1: :beer: :sunglasses:

Yes, hopefully you’ll see that even the lack of a reflector doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t enter. :wink:

Morning bump.

Is a sign of a healthy circulatory system, from what I hear.

:+1: :smiley: :smiley:

Careful FMC. That guy’s trouble! :smiling_imp:

Oh oh, he has a keyboard! :open_mouth:
Run for your lives :smiling_imp:

(and take a flashlight with you :stuck_out_tongue: )


Bumpity-bump, MRsDNF. I’m mentally sorting through the 2 or 3 ideas I came up with. The one that seems most likely to come out on top seems to involve more assorted wood pieces than metal. :laughing:

I will open a build thread when I decide which way to go.

But then here comes Johann…

Hmmm… hmm… :expressionless:
I entered once in 2014, 1x AAA angle light, and i hardly finished, that is, the light worked for about an hour, and then a short circuit developed, and the tiny TIR dedomed a 219B for the second time…
I still have the parts somewhere… :person_facepalming:
The build thread has no more pictures…

I was gonna join the scratch build contest again, but can’t think of anything special and / or doable…
So i might join, but only when i have a good idea.
