You liked my idea! [happy dance]

Even though I still probably can't remove the MC-E cover, at least the parts are designed to be reusable now. That's a plus for me on an ethical level if nothing else.

I reiterate that I think the Tri-V will set the bar for technical accomplishment in portable lighting for years to come. I must have one.

So you are the one making all those strange noises, downstairs.... :p

I did NOT say you could not live in my tree house, I said your whole family could not live in my tree house! :poke:

Hey Dave, where are the pics by the pool with the wife in her bikini? :drool::drool::drool::drool:

The light looks awesome, by the way. You know that one in the pic has my name all over it. :eek:

being a former machinist myself I can only imagine the ingenuity that went into machining something like that . . .just awesome work.
On another note I really like your holding jig too . . .keep up the great work !!

I just now came apon this thread.
Very good timming I must say.

Is it ok if I drive over to your place now Dave?
I'll hold the Tri-V for you so you can take the pic's.
I'm only 20 min away,Your still up right?

Send me an email if you still want to stop in and see the prototype. I will be around this week.

Yea, I will post some beam-shots. Usually I do not post them because of how common my McGizmo reflectors are but this Tri-V is different isn't it.

I took the Tri-V to the DE shore with me this weekend. Went walking on the beach at night with it and gave it a good breaking in. It worked well searching for stuff in the surf, switching between flood and throw and back again. In the pitch black, as I was walking down the beach with my family I heard but could not see a person setting on the board walk, off in the distance he yelled out "nice flashlight man". :tinfoil:

Setting under the umbrella during the day and drinking a few cold ones, I started the interface design. Wrote it all down on my hotel paper and stuck it in my pocket. Five minutes later my kids are like, "lets hit the surf dad". . . it was still in my pocket, I remember what I wrote anyway. :nana:


Cheers
Dave

There has to be some correlation between great flash-light design and beaches. Do you swim with fish as well ?
