    Party Seattle Area Get Together Flashlights and other gear Spring 2019

    Been a few busy years working on many ideas and haven't kept up to date posting pics and trying out new ideas, some with amazing results I'd love to show sometime this Spring if possible. My 24 inch LightSward edition of searchlights has really responded well to the 1,200 watt HMI short arc upgrade and makes such a bright beam that I'm selling the 1,00 watt Xenon searchlight I bought for using in comparison purposes to rate the beams etc., and now need to make room.

    Thinking sometime in April, May, perhaps in the same location as years past.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    Have some fun toys I've been making, such as the 1,000 watt high pressure short arc Xenon, 8 inch Cyclops, using all kinds of components..! It's three feet long with all the equipment needed. Test have it making a nice, laser looking beam...bright and thin. Also several 24 inch LightSward spinoffs using aluminum, getting nice smooth finish it shines much like the 36 inch Gorilla. Whenever or where ever we have this show soon, here in Portland area or same or near same spot near Seattle at the barn. Photos soon. So busy with these projects, haven't posted anything. Have some really neat plans for 10 & 12 inch mega lights using Xenon.

    Iím always interested but sadly the local wave has died down in recent years. Mike is out of the flashlight biz too. Those were good times. Hey, for a good memory, you can look up the video I made back in 2011. Wow, 8 years!
    If your future's not bright enough, you need more light!

    Sorry for the late reply on this - haven't been on CPF much lately. I'm in for another get-together. I think a lot of the momentum was around the awesome location we had at the "party barn". If we have a good place to do it I think we can drum up some interest. BLF and Reddit are pretty active these days, and I might be able to snag a few people from work.

    Have a couple new powerful and very portable searchlights, (relatively easy) love to bring to a get together) One of the lights needs about 3,000 watts and the other about 1,300 watts. Barn sure nice place. If it has to happen during Spring 2020 so be it.
