    Default CRX Hand Made Flashlights & Stuff

    I thought I would share some of my favorite hand made lights here that I have built over the last couple of years.
    These lights are mostly made from scratch with various materials using only small hand tools such as files & hacksaws, no lathe or other machines are used except a drill occasionally.
    Some are just lights with new casings or using other parts, anyway something a little different.

    Thinking out of the box is what makes your work so unique! A flashlight could take any shape and form! This is awesome

    Oh my! These have got to be some of the most beautiful pieces of functional art that I have ever seen! And if I were ever to vote someone most likely to build a actual light saber, you have now made the top of that list!
    You obviously do this because you enjoy it, but if you ever intend to release any of these into the wild, please please let us know. I know I would certainly be happy to give one of your creations a good home.

    Keep on building and modding! I can’t wait to see what other amazing ideas you create!

    Wow!
    Sell ‘em and make other designs that come up in your head. Much respect for hand making these treasures.
    Even your little vise is absolutely gorgeous.

    This is a bit overwhelming. I've never seen so many hand made torches by one maker before, and they are all in a single thread!

    It looks like some of these are slip fit, the silver knurly ones have threads. How do you do threads without a lathe? Just tap & die everywhere?
    Have torch, will travel.

    Jesus. I’m stunned. What an incredible lineup.

    Are any of these for sale? There are several I’d like to have.

    Some of the "slip fit lights" are held together via a strong neo magnet soldered to the driver & switch and tube friction.
    I don't even have taps & dies so the lights with threading are parts that I have found to use

    Thanks for letting me know.

    But really, it’s time to start your own flashlight design company. ;-)

    Interesting idea but I believe that would require a machinist, I only work with small hand tools at the moment.

    Quite a compliment coming from you, I have seen some of your exquisite small lights just recently. Very nice, something I might aspire to.
    The CRX brass tiny XM-L2 was in fact inspired by your tiny flashlight

    Yes, wee hotrods the D25C Ti triple, FET driver and Thrunite T10T XHP-50. I see you also had the Airayaland MT-G2
