Thread: Fred Pilon PhontonFanatic Picture Thread

  1. #1

    Default Fred Pilon PhontonFanatic Picture Thread

    Someone on another thread had mentioned about starting a picture thread of Flashlights that have been made by Fred Pilon aka PhotonFanatic. I thought that would be a good idea too, so here we go.

    I met Fred last year on line for the first time. I have acquired a couple of his LPK's (La Petite Killers). I made some leather necklaces with gold findings so I now will have one with me at all time. I also gave one to my wife. As many of you know Fred's attention to detail is amazing. His lights arnt half bad either. I now have an order in with Fred for a one of a kind lite that he will be making me in the future. I cant wait..........

    Here's my current 2 LPK's that are absolutely wonderful!

    So let's see your PhotonFanatic lights.

    Cheers, Jim

    Dunno for sure if it was a Modamag job, but I imagine it was.

    24KT plating.

    Bright in every way!

    antc_tw2002,



    Nice photos, great montage!


    donn,

    Actually, I had about six pieces of the Groovy gold plated. As you know, they are beautiful to look at, but impractical as a working light.

    I just want to say that Fred is amazing! I heard a while back that he wanted to focus on machining flashlights. I was looking for his great LED emitter sales again, but I ran into his website. This thread was my first glimpse into what he has created and I am just blown away! These are some of the most beautiful lights I have seen in a long while! The detail... the designs... the finishes... they are... wow! I am sorry for the over-use of the explanation point, but they just felt right!

    Is that Tasklight Two one of Fred's creations? If it was gold plated, I would finally start selling most of my creations for one. I am not a McLux or other premium light owner because I am poor, but I would sell my soul for a gold Tasklight Two! The knurling facets just make it twinkle so nicely already. I hope I am not coming off as crazy or sound like I am overreacting...

    -Tony

    EDIT: Oh, and aljsk8's flashlight shown in his avatar ties with HoopleHead's light for being my second favorite. He He... the reflection is nice, but I think the whole flashlight is nicer...

    Hey, Tony -- Hooplehead's piece is not a flashlight -- it is a Thinker's Toy, sort of like a worry stone, but given what was in the reflection, I don't think Hooplehead has too many worries.

    Ha ha. How foolish of me. Obviously I wasn't thinking. It looked so shiny and high tech that it could pass as a flashlight. Maybe it can be modded into one...

    I think I've done that already in this subforum, no? Or you can always visit my website, although I need to add the DG light build to it.

    Wow! Looking at the reflection I would not be taking pictures at a flashlight, In fact I would not be taking pictures at all!

    NICE!

    Damn, the TL2 looks even better in that pic. I didn't realize the nickel plating was so shiny.

    He wasn't photographing the light. He was using the light as a mirror to surreptitiously take a picture of the nice lady without her getting pissed off.

    Hell, it took me about five times before I even noticed it.

    I'm going to do a FPPFFP (Fred Pilon Photon Fanatic Family Portrait) when one more light gets here, but in the meantime, here are some photos:













    Still have a couple of Fred's lights that have been shy around the camera - that'll have to change!

    Great thread idea!
