The good book tells a story of David vs Goliath. History shows it took a few stones to complete the task. Hence all those 'stones' on the bedside table.

Now a few of those vintages I restored from non working, some arrived like new. And it all began with a Coast HP7 my wife confiscated. I needed a brighter light than my incan mini mag at work one night. I went to a nearby Lowes and bought an HP7, Energizer Hard Case and a Lux-Pro... the collecting began that night.

Just scored a minty Stewart R Browne F-81x with less than a minute to go.

A WW2 era, Army issue light that was used in places where static electricity could ignite a bunch of fuel. Miners, gas and oil pipe workers, phone company workers in manholes, railroad yard workers, pilots, and lots of other intrinsicley safe uses were met by the F-81x.

The Navy version has USN on it where this one has US.

Stewart R Browne lights are in the Smithsonian in a "first plastic flashlights" display from stuff Mr. Browne was using way back in or about 1918. The company still exists today.

Also recently scored a Laser Products 6R, which was the 6P with a rechargeable battery.

These were reportedly nowhere near as popular as the 2 cell version but that means they are rare... and cheap.

I managed to score a GT Price Smoke Cutter for less than the shipping cost.

Formerly a company called LA Screw made these lights that contained a 're-reflector' setup and some other proprietory tech that aided a fireman in a burning building. In time  famous for their TL-122 and MX-991 light maker GT Price acquired LA Screw. Reportedly later Don Keller acquired GT Price and rekindled Kel-Lite briefly with some 2x AA lights.

(http://i1301.photobucket.com/albums/ag118/bykfixer/z%20flashlights/vintage/IMG_20170605_194857_zpsbvkvv8pt.jpg~original) (http://s1301.photobucket.com/user/bykfixer/media/z%20flashlights/vintage/IMG_20170605_194857_zpsbvkvv8pt.jpg.html)
A genuine LA Screw Code 4 3+2= 5D with a never produced in mass toggle switch. LA Screw used a switch assembly that could be placed between barrel segments for better balance on the longer lights. GT Price designed a no "click to on" toggle switch that had LA Screw distributors say "not no but hellno!!" so it never went into serious production.

East meets West,
(http://i1301.photobucket.com/albums/ag118/bykfixer/z%20flashlights/vintage/IMG_20170622_053111_zpsk5v9gslu.jpg~original) (http://s1301.photobucket.com/user/bykfixer/media/z%20flashlights/vintage/IMG_20170622_053111_zpsk5v9gslu.jpg.html)
Next to the green Mag is a 4D Streamlight made from the 3rd generation Kel-Lite design shortly after Norm Nelson sold Kel-Lite designs to Streamlight to pay off debt... Norm was hired by Don to help get the company out of debt and at one point ended up running Kel-Lite so founder Don Keller left in 1973.
For clarity I do not say that to tarnish anyones name or reputation. See, Kel-Lite's success was a problem. Selling lots of lights meant more equipment was required to keep up with demand, which led to more success, that led to more equipment required, which led to more success, which led to....
Streamlight had the resources to keep up.

Meanwhile Tony Maglica was making some over flow stuff for Kel-Lite and Bianchi B-Lites. He was a shrewd man who had been making stuff for the US government and had acquired a stellar reputation as an exellent, dedicated machinist. When Mag Instruments was founded in '74 Tony was ready for the task of making flashlights. He also had the know how to produce much of the machinery required. So with flashlight veteran Don Keller along side Maglite changed the world of flashlights by 1979.

The photo shows that parts of early Maglite and Kel-Lite stuff could be interchanged. It also shows Streamlight made in both Pa and Ca.

Back to Don Keller,

A pair of early, very rare Brinkmanns
Don went to Brinkmann and developed a bunch of lights after parting ways with Maglite. The pair shown are low production numbers being an Eddie Bauer promo 3C and a gold plated 3x AA executive model.

Another Keller company, the Sigmalite

Only made for about a year, this was the answer to the minimag folks were begging for. Clicky tailcap so their favorite beam could be saved or stealth tactics could be used with one hand.

A pair of Justrite aviator lights. Top is WW2 issue and bottom is Korean Conflict era. 2x AA lights using #222 or #224 bulbs and a sliding device which slides a red cover over the bulb. Both have a signal ability or full time on/off. The top one is an alluminum tipped Stewart R Browne Tuffite body with a pocket clip sliding switch. The bottom is all alluminum with a twisty tail cap switch akin to 1990's 2x123 cop lights.

The light that led to Polyester Streamlights

Title: Re: The Bykfixer collection
Post by: bykfixer on June 25, 2017, 09:59:03 PM
I like it a lot Johnnie. It arrived with nearly all of the chrome gone from the clear plastic reflector. I thought I was stuck with a room lighter with only a slight bit of throw unless I invested in some kind of re-chrome materials.

Well I lucked up and found some new parts for LA Screw lights including a metal reflector made by Qualtech back then. I noticed the like new reflector in the LA Screw light looked awfully similar to that B-Lite reflector that I had painted white (to boost the throw a bit). Lo-n-behold it was the same reflector!! It also turns out that a Maglite lens works. It now has a Mag White Star bulb and a flashlightlens.com ultra-clear glass lens. And it beats the pants off of my 2D Maglite for brightness and throw. Only my 4C Mag with 3 cell krypton bulb can beat it.

But my favorite part was the "super star" sticker on the taiicap.

I like to think it came from a policemans kid. But it was an eBay item so I don't know the actual history.

The plastic Pro-Light I showed has the officers badge number on the bezel and the charger, while that Sigmalite has FPD engraved from a Fresno California police mans estate.

California Company Cop Lights.
Custom white reflector bottom left is for turning some into close quarter tactical flood only lights. Rechargeable batteries for hot wired numbers. Once the Pony Express gets a few more delivered there'll be unseen gaps in the photo filled.

Has a high switch and a low switch.
Focuses like a Maglite with a Brinkmann twist... better shaped reflector for max spill without the hole while still preserving a nice spot when adjusted to flood mode.
Irony? It came with a Maglite bulb in it.

Speaking of Maglite...

Once upon a time Maglite made drop in modules.
Circa 2006 Mag made drop in modules to double the brightness of a 4 cell light and drastically increase runtime. I managed to score a few.

Later I found a Classic 2D Mag LED in blue at my local Wal Mart. Those things are drying up these days as the ML stuff replaces them. About as bright as a 6 cell incan without being required to carry the Louisville Slugger sized flashlight. At only 168 lumens their real world output is nothing short of amazing.

E addiction continued to 4, but now I'm cured
I acquired an LED body for my Defender and have discussed with "Tana" a nichia 219 module that puts out like an original beam with 17 available configurations.
An olive drab click Executive and a natural finish clicky was too. The NA clicky will get a Tads setup, and the olive will stay stock-ish using a 6 volt Lumens Factory bulb.

Being it's mid November there's still time to add to the collection , yet there's nothing on my radar until Maglite releases the ML150 3C sized Magcharger number touting 1000 lumens. Eh, if I stumble across a 2 cell ML300 or an XL version at a local store I'll but those. But the SureFires might just be the last ones for 2017.....

Thanks SG.

Recently I took advantage of the foursevens clearance sale and snagged 2 more PK Knights for $37. Paladins were already gone.

Another SureFire A2 with white LED's was added. One with a lot of miles on the chassis so it's a carrier when rough duty is on the menu.
A Tana module was added to mimic the light bulb in my E2D daily carry. It has a 219B chip and a bunch of settings options including a couple with memory. So I keep it at the 25% (approx 28 lumens) setting via the 100/25/4/1% mode.

A minty SureFire 1 cell Executive with the cross hair logo was added. It's the gun metal edition.

The other night at WalMart I bought yet another gray Maglite Solitaire LED. I think that's either 8 or 9 of those...

I'll take a group photo and post it along with a few not shown yet that I recently dusted off for use at work.

Somebody asked me recently if I had over 100 flashlights. "Easily" I replied. They asked if there are 500 yet. I responded "probably, but I stopped counting at 300". lol

Upside down stamped minimag.
Only one had ever been posted online. It was in Finland. This one from Ohio USA makes #2.

Vital Gear prototypes.
The 3x123 switchless at the top never was produced. The far right vertical one with a clip was a regular production item. All the rest including the NIP drop in are pre-production samples. The drop in is a blank body with no LED installed.

When many hear 'Lego' flashlights they often think SureFire but

How about a Klaurus P1A with a Malkoff M31W in a VME head? About 150 incan tinted lumens from a 1aa flashlight.

A big head Kel-Lite 3D circa 1969 (using a PR based Maglite xenon) and a Malkoff MDC 1xAA using a VME head and M31W. It was my "happy 50th" to Kel-Lite who began in 1968, and 50 years later the little 1AA light gives a similar beam.

3 Pentagon L2's added.
Seller wanted $25 for all 3 so that was hard to pass up.

It's been a quiet year collecting-wise. Instead of adding more and more in some kind of drunken sailor fashion, I'm being very picky and enjoying the plethora I already own.

Hey Wilson....

I got another SureFire the other day.

A pre-built lego.
SureFire's new Aviator body mimics an E1 body very well.

Also decided to see what those crazy kids at Quik Lite were all excited about.

Peachy keen little flashlights.

Cop light family reunion.
100+ years of police lights all gathered for a photo earlier today to welcome the newest member the Quik Lite pro hands free ticket lighter.

The aviator in the previous post now has a Tana singLED in 4000 kelvin flavor. It runs at about 25% output on a CR123.... which in this case is about 25 lumens.

In general the light collection isn't growing anymore. Noticing that box stores seem to have less and less old school name'd lights and more as seen on tv junk, I have turned my sights to some classic names like Rayovac or Energizer. I've noticed a vast selection of Rayovac "essentials" at various places like drug stores and grocery stores. At between $3 and $10 they are long running numbers with old school 2 C or D outputs. And Rayovac has also reintroduced the Sportsman in a solid 3x,aaa platform that can run on an 18500. Energizer has a line of "smart" lights with switchless touch feature or adjusting output for throw or flood from the same light.

Some budget friendly numbers that are actually pretty good.
Left is a smart light that looks a lot brighter than the numbers suggest. Middle is an old school plastic number with a sliding switch and PR based LED. Right is a 2018 Sportsman that makes a mighty fine ancestor to the long long line of classics.

Oh, and speaking of classic...

After a near 2 year search...
Not one but two old school pencil beam Microstreams. While I was at it I tossed the tan G2L in the cart. The original P60L and plastic head version.

Until next time....

Added a Fenix EO1 to the daily users

"They" told me it has an ugly beam. I didn't mind it but.... I wanted to show "them" how to clean it up with a reversable mod. The conventional wisdom is to scuff the globe but a sharpie did it better and is reversable.

The white wall pic.
Spot is hardly affected so throw is not compromised. Yet spill is better blended without all the different color rings.
