    Default How do you display your collection ??

    Ok, I have ordered a few and the ones already here are starting to lay around a bit. As I already have a workshop I am shamelessly wondering what sort of wood constructed displays you may have. What criteria would be important for display and instant use of a growing number of flashlights?

    I don't have a display case yet. I have my lights stashed all over the house. It would be nice to have a case to put some of the nice ones in but I've not found any as of yet.
    Do you have a link to any stores that have cases for sale?

    Take a look at the mini-mag collection here, there are a few display cases that show off individual collections. I believe most of these are custom built. I made a cabinet for my stuff, not a display, but it holds them.

    Try hunting around on the internet for display cabinets,

    Hi,I was looking for a ceramic knife over at bed bath and beyond's web sight,and clicked on the clearance section then hit Gift and a nice looking Burlwood deluxe pencase came up it's dimensions are 8.3 inches wide 6 inches deep and 3.8 inches high,it even has a glass window and it is 8.99.I thought it was a good deal,but a little too specialized to put in the good deals section.I thought a solitare collector might have use for this.Sorry if this is inapropiate for this section,just wanted to share.

    Under $10 - real burl wood, not likely. I have seen similar boxes, they might be fiber board with a printed covering to look like burl wood. But then, for under $10, how wrong can you go. Something like that it is best to see the actual item.

    Jim & Linda Cox make the most beautiful, durable, attractive & functional case available. I looked at many before buying from them, and thought hard about making one in my shop. In the end, I bought his largest, a 24x54 in black walnut. My son bought a smaller one.

    Because of the fitment of the foam, guns, knives, lights, etc., are securely held in place, and can be rearranged instantly.

    Like Surefire, not the least expensive, just the best you can find.

    Does this type of case use the glass to press the item into the foam to hold it in place? Rearangement is done by removing it from the wall, lying it down flat, then opening it ?

    They are nice looking cases...

    will,

    That is exactly how the Cox case functions. There isn't a great deal of pressure between foam & glass, but there is enough to hold items when the case is hung vertically on the wall. You can also switch the color of the display cloth easily - it is a lightweight fabric, nothing special about it.

    If you look at his show schedule, he travels quite a bit. So it is possible to pick up a case at a show & save shipping charges.

    Default How do you display you collection?

    While doing shows I have been playing around with different ideas looking for the best way to display my lights to customers. I have seen some knife displays that look like they will work well so we are considering using them. I am wondering what everyone else does? How do you display your collection?

    Thanks

    Thanks Morpheus!

    You will probably need both your arms because these cabinets weighs a few pounds....or alot...


    Hopefully I will have one of the smaller display cabinets soon..

    Very impressive, Team Member

    Do you have any closeups of the flashlights inside the case, like you do for the knives?

    I have an Oakley display case for my lights and knives.

    Once things leave my hands I am not responsible for what happens.

    chipwillis, thats a nice one. Those are kinda hard to get hold on.

    Do you have some kind of lightning inside it or is it just spotlights outside?

    Came with the light. Looked for one on evilbay and they were around $800 plus shipping. I found this one on craigs list for $400 delivered inside my house. A guy worked out a deal with the Oakley store in the Mall of America. My wife is starting to get use to it.

    great pictures

    I personally don't display mine at all.

    But when I need to get them, its like opening a safe of Hard Core guns.

    except photons not bullets.
