    Here is the thread with the photo of my titanium piece. I sent it back to Fred, and I asked him to put a small dimple in the middle of the top.

    I have para cord to form a lanyard, with a Ti bead by Peter Atwood. The bead has a groove all the away around the circumference of the bead with dimples added. This bead is an amazing match for this wonderful light.

    I think I will order another and mount it in the company truck, with a clamp and arm or goose neck!

    Thanks, Fred for the cool TLT, I love it!

    Best,

    It is Alum and is from Fred.

    It really is a nice accessary. I like to clip my lights to a lanyard or tether and this works great.

    I've been lusting for one of these for a while and have a few questions:

    1. Do you offer them in different tints if requested?
    2. Can these potentially be modded to new emitters later down the road as technology changes?
    3. What's the beam like?

    Thanks for your time! I've always been intrigued by your work Fred!

    These were a production run and I also had all the LEs assembled by Darkzero, when he used to do that kind of work, so there is no choice of LED tint.

    As for modifying the LE, yes, it could be done, i.e., remove the LED and install a different one, but it probably would be easier just to machine a new LE and install the LED/driver that you want. Mind you, the driver that is in the TLII is only 10mm in diameter so finding a replacement might be hard.

    The beam is nice and smooth, since I use a slightly orange peeled reflector--there still is a noticeable hot spot though.

    BTW, I am down to my last two of these.

    I bought one recently from Fred. He said he still had a few available.
    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    Fred,

    Could you please save one for me? This is one, if not, my favorite lights, ever!

    Thanks,

    Fred just upgraded my tasklight with Nichia 219b, perfect for reading at night and a great match to my Novoflex tripod
    Fred was very helpful and patient and his work is absolute perfection!

    No, I used a modified 3-level FET driver from Mountain Electronics instead of the original.

    Thread revival... just saw this and it made me regret selling mine a while back. Jmayot's sounds fantastic!

    Yup, you are right YummyBacon, it is a fantastic light! Indeed, we used it last night to read a bedtime story to the kids
    Added bonus: it looks like a museum piece
