Thread: 500 Lumen - AAA Flashlight (photos) - Work In Progress - Part 2

    Sign me up for at least two, in aluminum.

    Bare Alu would be fine with me, as it looks great when polished. I have bare alu bicycle parts (including a crankset - down in the dirt and wet) which I de-anodized and polished more than 20 years ago, that still look like new - just a slight whitening of the surface, much like slightly tarnished silver..

    Hi FsTop,

    Thanks very much for the post and info on the bare aluminum
    Just wondering how often you have cleaned the crankset and have you had any issues with rust (or was rust not an issue due to regular cleaning)?

    ?!? !?! That post count error is WEIRD.

    As far as I can see, none of your posts have disappeared - it's just the count that's gone screwy...

    Let's hope it's just a temporary glitch that will reset itself.
    Resistance is futile...

    I'll be wanting 2 or 3 Black AAA ones, each with charger and preferred battery. I subscribed.

    Almost literally never. It's a road bike, so it doesn't get covered with mud, although it gets used in the rain. When the bike starts looking dirty, I just wipe it off with a slightly oily rag (any rag used to clean a bike is slightly oily) or wash it once a year whether it need it or not.

    Long ago I also had a bare alu cigarette lighter that always drew compliments because people thought it was silver - I suspect that the cloth of the pocket polished it a bit.

    LOL - not many people would be able to take this unfortunate setback so well, and in such good humor!

    Please be assured the matter is being looked into, and we hope it can be fixed...

    DM51,
    Thank You for being so proactive and seeing the first post notifying about this one

    More importantly is that all of TGWNP posts are still here! Yay.
    May I ask, are you getting a Torpedo also?

    That is a shocking and a bit funny coincidence :P tgwnn and tgwnp!!! Maybe mods can just put his post count back? Not that it matters but it is a visual sign of a members involvement and interaction on a board.

    Thanks ruriimasu,
    The black version will be the default (first production run).
    After that, I hope to take counts on the various requests regarding possible options and try to accomodate where possible.
