    Please astound me? No more cool lights, you're kidding right?

    Hi, it's been a while but popped back to see what's happening, what's new folks? I remember the first day I visited this site and stumbled upon the TiPDS, falling in love immediately I tracked one down and still own it and use it (them) . The next/last light to make me feel like a kid at...

    Spy Questions

    There are numerous threads where questions are being asked about different elements of the Spy and it would be fairly difficult to check if your question had already been asked/answered during an earlier exchange. The Spy has some features pretty unique to the flashlight world and I imagine...

    Your thoughts on resilience.

    I could have asked this question in many places on this board but just felt this was a good place:thumbsup:. First my disclaimer: I'm no engineer and will go further to say I have no knowledge that can be applied to this subject other than that which would be viewed as common sense...

    Opportunity to vote for your top McGizmo

    OK - if you regularly participate in this sub forum you likely think, most, if not all Don's mainstream works are top notch, but I thought it would be interesting and fun to see a spread of favorites. With only 10 options I have had to narrow down the field to 9 options plus an "Other". It...

    Removing/replacing the thumbstud on a Sebbie?

    Does anyone know how Chris tightens the thumbstud on the Sebbie. I want to swap one of mine over to another Sebbie, but given there are no flats on the front or threads on the back I'm stumped. Any ideas? Thanks

    Sold/Expired WTGA: 27LT-S (GONE) Milky Modded 120P ADDED (ALSO GONE)

    I'm trying to slim down my collection, and whilst this has a much nicer beam and a better tint than my Malk SF 6P, and is a better thrower, and has a more resistant finish, and is a McGizmo, I just can't be parted from the 6P for "sentimental" reasons. The light is not mint, it has a ding in...

    Is anyone working on the Titan Mark II?

    I've only had the SF Titan for 48 hours but I'm realising it could be, despite it's imperfections, the most useful light I own! The TiPD-S, modded HDS or a Novatac would be my choice in a "if you had to choose only one" situation. BUT I cannot religiously carry one of these due to thier size...

    Sold/Expired FS: SOLD! RARE McGizmo Ti AlTiN S27C

    Time to let this one go as it remains a shelf Queen, and that's simply not the true destiny of this tough little light with the toughest of coatings. I will stand corrected but I think there is only one other of these McG originals out there (maybe two):thinking:. I'm in the UK and shipping...

    Relative Reliability - HDS EDC Series vs. TiPD Series

    Over the past 6-8 months these two light have become my EDC's of choice. I remain slightly sceptical about the long term reliablity of the HDS switch, whilst problems with the PD are rare but not unknown. I'd love to know of your experiences with these two lights, in terms of reliablity...

    Why do I keep buying more lights when I already have a TiPD-S?

    This light was the reason I joined CPF. Goatee (my favourate CPFer:kiss:) sold me one for a very fair price. I later picked up a non-Mizer courtesy of Groundhog (my favourate Hog:kiss:). I think I commented at the time that these were the last lights I would ever need to buy!!!!!!!!!! My EDC...

    Why no Micro/Multifunction Switches?

    Why does Don not build these small, versatile little things into a light? One of the many reasons I carry a TiPD-S over all others is the faith I have in the simple mechanical switching operation manifested in the twisty and piston/kilroy interface. The many options of a Novatac/HDS light are...

    What is the folder equivilent of a TiPD-S?

    My favourate folders are a Bradley Alias, a CRKT Lakes PAL and a SOG Arcitech. However I know there must be a whole host of nice things out there I'm oblivious too. I want something with a 3 inch blade there or thereabouts, one handed opener (no autos) and a pocket clip, something strong...

This thread is going out to all those CPFers with hidden gems in thier collections, either rare customs or intriguing mods, one offs and rareities, old and new, LED or...

    The perfect McGizmo?

    The first time I saw a cool flashlight, it was one of those brick shaped blue and white Ever Ready flashlights, found in my dads glove box when I was about 5 years old. The second cool torch was a tin plate 3D jobby I bought on scout camp when I was 11. The next was a Surefire 6P about 8...

    Sold/Expired FOUND -WTB Mint TiPD-S

    I think the title says it all - I have a "user" and love it so much would like a back up Shelf Queen. Would prefer a non-mizer but will consider a mizer, a mod with trits in the bezel would be a real bonus and would be willing to pay accordingly. Looking for $500 plus shipping to UK...

    Bradley Alias vs. Sebbie

    My new favourate folder is the Bradley Allias II, a volume production model sharing similarities with the Sebbie. My only dissapointment is the coating, after just a hour or so accidentally carried in a pocket with coins and keys the finish is...
