    The lathe that you use must be quite rigid to pull that off.
    Thank you HarryN, I've thought about it long, how to post the small size of it in perspective so everyone has something to compare to....It did take quite an effort to machine it, but assembly was more difficult. It would be fairly simple making it on an cnc lathe, but assembly would still be a pain every time (This is the reason I'm not offering any for sale...maybe in the future:-)

    Wow. That is one gorgeous tiny light George. You must have eyes like an Eagle for such fine work.

    Thank you for the kind words, my eyes are good, but I'm using magnifiers and microscope, to check fine details...still eye fatigue is a regular occurance, when working on small parts...

    This is awesome! I'm about to start on my first build but nothing this small, a 20mm triple. Great work! I've worked on some tiny parts in the medical manufacturing industry they can really be a pain.

    Thank you Spanky, it's always a good idea to start with one that's relatively easy and well documented, in case you run into some issues. I love challenging and unique builds, and I will have some really cool concepts to post early next year:-)

    I appreciate the kind words Icarus, I spend quite a long time shooting a project, without the proper presentation, it's hard to show off your work, unless you can show it off in person...

    Very cool “micro light” George. (If any light deserves this name it’s this one
    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    Thank you Steve, I've loved miniatures since I was about 4 years old. I'm glad now that I have the knowledge and the skill, I can create some myself:-)
