    I'm not generally much for lanyards and beads, but that middle one is very nice

    Just finished working on two McGizmos, a Sundrop (with DatiLED XP-L light enginge) and a RPM Haiku Lego (with DatiLED XP-L HI light enginge). Both heat coloured and stonewashed but the Haiku got a Blair´s Death Hot Sauce treamtment :-) which gives it the nice bluish patina finish.

    Those look great but how durable are the finishes and are they something we can do ourselves at home without getting burned?

    Thanks Dave

    I don´´t know what actually is different from anodizing titantium but I think heat colouring, at least to the temperatures I do, appears to more durable than anodizing. I use a torch that provides a 1500 degrees celsius flame (so burning yourself should be easy Kaichu ) and judging from the colour I guess I heat the titanium up to something between 500 and 600 degrees. Stonewashing is done in a 1L widemouth nalgene bottle with sharp stones of diffferent sizes. Takes about half an hour to get results that tumblers need quite a few hours to achive. The hot sauce (Blair´s Original Death) is applied to the titanium surface, than burned with the torch for a few minutes until it is just black. When I put it into cold water to cool it down, the black stuff flakes off and leaves the blueish surface behind. And I guess if that what you see is what stays on after a few minutes of stonewashing it should be durable. Also, heatcolouring and stonewashing can alsway be redone.

    McGizmo 119V HIVE Mule and its friend the Maratac AAA Copper.

    Maverick Workshop recently made some lanyard beads out of turbo glow material which is handy for finding your flashlight in the dark!

    Agreed, very nice. Just looked and they do orange too, which is a bonus. GiTD beads are less likely to scratch the torch or damage the lens than tritium beads or lanterns (IMO)
