Yes, nice collection and great idea for a thread. I know Father Azmodius has some awesome stuff. I have some of the smaller and medium size TnC lights, will post a photo of those soon.

And I don't recognize the TnC models.
Chris Ogaz (TnC) has been making flashlights for some time, see link below. I havent' been active on CPF for some time, but was very active between 2005-2009.
TnC KeyLux and N cell can be searched. Chris also built a SF series that was modular and interchangeable and I have a few.... also a C flex series, I believe he still manufactures...

Wow, that's the most of those rare little vintage classics I've seen in one photo ... :cool:

Not sure exactly what you were asking, @bykfixer , but part of the base is "carved away" to allow for the split ring attachment point. Is that the feature you were wondering about ?

Yep.
When looking at the top pic I thought "wut-thuh?",

But the one below had me going (facepalm) "oh I see said the blind man." "Lanyard area."
Don't know the technical term.

This thread hasn't seen any action in a while so thought I'd post this.

This is most of my TnC collection, mainly coppers, along with one brass, one mokume gane, and an electroless nickel. There's a couple of lights missing but when I find them I'll post another group photo. I also posted this over in the copper thread and then remembered it could go here too.

Great collection. I wish I wouldn't have sold all mine after seeing this picture

I've been eyeing a copper XPL-HI 18350 dragon, unsure if I want the triple or single emitter.

Are drivers easily swappable on these?

the entire pill screws out from the front. the driver is held in with a retaining ring, so should be mod-able.

I put a Nichia 219b triple in with the stock FET driver and a frosted optic, and WOW! it was great!

Really nice collections Father Azmodius & magellen!!!

Here is a TnC throwback to, IIRC, 2005. This is a 2nd generation Hyperlux, 3 cell in blue/black splash anno with a LuxV emitter and twisty operation.

Just a classic design that went on to become the SuperFlashlight which was a collaboration between TnC and Arcmania, with Arcmania providing some excellent light engines.
I have collected a few samples over the years of different variations.
The pic below has:
-TnC Blue/Black Hyperlux
-SuperFlashlight V (Nat anno, 4 cell, 15W Ostar)
-SuperFlashlight III (Nat anno, 2 cell, upgraded to ??Ostar for throw and McClicky)
-Ti SuperFlashlight III Combat Body (2 cell with another mystery Ostar for flood, McClicky)
-Tain Hyperlux Ti Tribute (2 cell, XML, electronic switch and ridiculous knurling!!)
-SuperFlashlight II Orange/Black (2 cell twisty with LuxV X-bin)

The machining for the SuperFlashlights was done by TnC where the Tain is a fantastic rendition of the original SuperFlashlight but in titanium.
So, in a way, all TnC!
After 10+ years, still one of my favorite designs.

I just acquired the Extreme Micro Turbo Dragon mokume gane CR2 and the Nano Lux copper 10440, so when I return in a couple of weeks I'll post an updated group photo.
