Original production 6 D-cell Maglite with halogen lamp
New production 6 D-cell Maglite
(more cheaply made despite company claims) with a 1000 lumen LED mod
Toy laser pointer at best aim. It was extremely difficult to point it.
High power near-IR laser powered
with an unusual source 870nm, max
output power 1.2 Watts, Class 4 (which means extremely hazardous i.e.
the invisible beam, even if reflecting off matte
surfaces and fry your retina in a fraction of a second.)
This was an idea which popped into my head while I glanced at some
parts. I thought I'd try it but didn't think it would work
and I was concerned about applying the wrong voltage and current since
they're a little sensitive about such things.
I could not believe it worked and was very pleased!
I'm planning on using this as a long range covert illuminator and think
it will easily reach 1000 yards.
I have over-gloves for Fast Roping and
I've been wanting to test them. This is my first really short
test to see how hot they got before I go up a big tree (without any
oars) to test them out at the length of my
climbing rope. They worked great! With just tactical
gloves, my hands started to burn just at that short distance and
carrying the same weight. I was pretty tired today and kind of
worried because these are the kind of times I get into accidents and
part of my mumbling to myself was wondering how long it would take for
someone to find my body :D btw - I used to rock climb so this
heght doesn't seem like much to me.
I noticed how clumsy things are with the gloves, I think I'll do a
short one again with extra gear and see how it works
See? I do need an MP-5!
Trying hard not to swing back into the ladder like last time!
time with tac gloves, even at this short height my hands
started to burn. This time, didn't feel a thing!
