The other day I realized I hadn't been active in the flashlight scene for a while, and people from half a decade ago were still waiting for pics of some of the lights I owned. So, to kill two birds with one stone, I've started photographing my entire flashlight collection for the entertainment of CPF.
I'll be slowly posting them as the get the photos taken, and have the time to resize and upload them all.
Kel-Lite 26" Batonlite. These lights use 5C cells plus an aluminum spacer rod. Without the spacer, this one holds 12 C-cells:
Kel-Lite 22" Batonlite. The silver bezels are made of solid stainless steel, for durability:
Mag-Lite 7D. They stopped making these in 1989:
Kel-Lite 7D. Medium head models were a late-'70s addition:
Bianchi B-Lite 7D. A post-Kel-Lite Don Keller design:
New Products Development Co. Tru-Grit 7D. Each knurled section unscrews to vary the length. I believe these guys ran afoul of Kel-Lite's lawyers around 1972:
Pro-Light 6D. Another Don Keller design:
Mag-Lite 6D. Recent production:
Streamlight 7C. With a surprise...
Trouble with unruly suspects or hippies? Well...
Out pops an ASP baton! It takes up four cells' worth of space in the light:
Streamlight 5D. Streamlight made a whole raft of D/C-cell flashlights in the '80s based on late designs they got when they bought Kel-Lite:
Brinkmann 5D. I believe Brinkmann's series of similar lights use a design originally from LA Screw Company's Code-4 models:
Mag Instruments Vari-Beam. This was an '80s Mag-Lite sold through industrial suppliers. Designed to be hard to lose in dark shops:
