Re: Show you`r brass Alephs......

Only one made,

And that was not a original,it was Custom Made specially for me by GanP.
There has been some 1x123 tubes also made by him.

The Only material Alephs have been made of is Aluminum.

Most of the parts made today in exotic materials is copy`s and not Orignal Aleph material.

Re: Show you`r brass Alephs-clones......

GanP made a brass light for a member of his family.
It was a twisty with an Aleph compatible head.
I wonder if Colin would mind if I posted his pictures here :thinking:

The problem with brass is that it tarnishes over time ...
I dont know want the correct term is but brass goes kinda green
after a while.

I would be more impressed with a light made of Stainless steel :D

Re: Show you`r brass Alephs-clones......

I know exactly wich one you mean TX....!
For his grandchild (daughter) right...

If you EDC it in you`r pocket it will stay nice and polished I think...!
And IMO the tarnish located in the lower points of the surfacestructure would make it look realy cool....!




Thanks again Benny...!

Awesome pictures...!

Re: Show you`r brass Alephs-clones......

THe oxidization that occurs creating the discoloration/darkening of the brass is known as the patina. Common on many other metals. Some Some people like it (aesthetically) some don't. Some peoplw will use different stuff (like mustard) to create that patina... :)

I agree, that the combination of tarnish/darker in the low spots of the knurling mixed with the bright polished areas would make it look good... IMO

Just some UFI for the day

Ha ha, just stumbled across this thread. Yes, I will be happy to post some photos. I'm swamped with work today, but maybe tonight or tomorrow.

Love my brass GanP A19. Really solid and looks great when I polish it! Benny did a great job on the light engine too!

With the brass, the light has a retro-19th century look.
