    Seattle Area Get Together Flashlights and other gear Spring 2019

    Well the C-19 has kept me busy with many ideas and cool new searchlights. When the cure, treatments and inoculations have killed the C-19, we can have another get together.

    Seattle Area Get Together Flashlights and other gear Spring 2019

    Been a few busy years working on many ideas and haven't kept up to date posting pics and trying out new ideas, some with amazing results I'd love to show sometime this Spring if possible. My 24 inch LightSward edition of searchlights has really responded well to the 1,200 watt HMI short arc...

    Fall 2016 Seattle Are Get together

    Currently three searchlights are in final to near final stages of construction. Several, minor, yet very pesky and demoralizing design flaws and focus issues made it difficult to achieve my desired results. I'm only three months behind schedule. I'd still like to aim for a possible show in...

    Fall 2016 Seattle Are Get together

    Still aiming for October or late September...with some delays. All my searchlights are in various stages of work, some because I had to cannibalize parts due to hard to find items or costs. I'm hoping to get everything back together and fixed because of some minor design issues, I'm a few...

    Fall 2016 Seattle Are Get together

    Been real busy, so progress has been slow on the reflector focusing. See several people have voted for a September Get together. Not sure I can have anything ready to show by then as I have been slowed trying to eliminate the "three focus points" problem I'm having. Most of the reflector does...

    Fall 2016 Seattle Are Get together

    What's the price..? Tested the 36 inch Aluminum reflector searchlight and was thrilled but not totally satisfied with clarity of image. Am removing reflector, (pain in the azz, integrated construction design), to make minor adjustments on the reflector to make it a perfectly sharp, focused...

    Fall 2016 Seattle Are Get together

    :cool: Why in deed...? No real reason, mostly the late nights; this time of year, not dark until 10:00pm. Also, I'm not totally finished yet, though hopefully within the next month should be finished. A Summer showing could be feasible....Any ideas anyone.? A 6,000 wat power supply would...

    Seattle area 2015 fall meet-up - "It's getting cold" edition.

    Be good to get a Portland Area Get Together up and running anyway, and maybe cater to the "Keep Portland Weird", trait and promote some of our Hand Made and Home made or assembled flashlights and spotlights to maybe create more interest. We could have "build your own flashlight", workshops with...

    Seattle area 2015 fall meet-up - "It's getting cold" edition.

    What park did you have in mind..? PDX area would be nice. At the moment I still only have the little Kia Rio and a small trailer to tow my big searchlights and large power generator. Only traveling within the Portland Area for now would be nice.
