Went to a Federal building yesterday in Philadelphia. Had to place my ti Chameleon in the basket while I went through the metal detector.
 
The agents were absolutely fascinated with the light. Asked me dozens of questions about it.

I felt like I time-traveled from the future with a rare artifact that primitive humans shouldn't have seen.

Cheers,

I think you should offer the collection to the Museum of Modern Art. The design core of MoMA doesn't seem to have any titanium lights.

I saw him at The Whack, he couldn't have played across the river... Camden (?) :)

It was at the Tweeter Center, Camden, NJ Saturday, September 16, 2006 : Awsome show! IIRC, they lost another flying pig at that show.

I'd like to know what the "evil color" is that makes "everyone" sick.

Searched their website to no avail.

General Flashlight Discussion / Re: Titanium Lights (I love this thread!)

Greetings all, I have to admit that this is one fascinating thread... I hope it persists for a great while. While I'm just starting my modest collection of titanium lights (will post a pic in the near future) I do greatly appreciate those of you that kindly IDENTIFIED your ti beauties.

Sometimes it is difficult to figure out exactly what you have.

Also, where are the ti Spy lights? I often admired those. Gatlights also seem under-representated.

Anyway, thanks for the drooling session!

Regards,

Mark

I took a Milky "Cyanator" (in a SF M1 body) to Roger Waters concert in Camden. It was well rec'd ;)

I suspect it only performs like that at close range, but sure it's possible.

Mr. Bulk / Ti Chameleon Club: The hardest part...
« on: July 22, 2007, 02:31:09 AM »
Hi all,

As the newest member of the club, I want to share one of my impressions, that I suspect is familiar with all of you already.

I occasionally rotate my Ti Chameleon into EDC. When at work (hospital) most people never look twice at it... but every so often, someone that appreciates unique tools, titanium, or bright lights will go nuts over it.

And they are always asking me, "where can I get one?" and never believe me when I tell them the story of these unusual tools.

How do you all handle this situation?

Cheers,

Mark

Materials/Theories/Fabrication / Ti rocking chair
« on: May 27, 2007, 09:30:55 AM »
I saw a ti rocking chair at a craft show a couple years ago. The craftsman made it from scraps salvaged from his job in aerospace welding (retired.)

It was beautiful; mirror polished; and used 1/2 flat stock, thick rods, and 1" tubes.

Sorry I didn't have a spare $1,750 at the time.

Regards,

Mark

Actually I usually carry at least one titanium light (current EDC is a Ti-PD-S) when I'm working at my hospital job. I work in an Emergency/Trauma Center and our patients often need MRI imaging. 

At any given time, all I have to do is drop my cell phone, and I'm 100% magnetically neutral --my watch is stainless and sterling; pens are sterling (brass refills); flashlight, tools, o2 tank wrench is copper; all keys, belt buckle, pant's zipper are brass. Actually some ti and stainless watches use parts inside that contain iron, and they stop ticking in the MRI field. I've had great success with a Rolex GMT Master (original series, not the II)

I can walk right into the MRI suite with my patient (while my associates are stripping their EDC stuff outside.)

The MRI uses a superconducting magnet that would otherwise pull all significant iron-containing gear through the air at high speeds... then smashing into the superconductor.  Small bits are acceptable, like the iron in batteries, if they are mounted in something substantial to keep them from going airborne.

It's really funny to see the MRI techs (that don't know me) glance up and see me with all sorts of "metal" and issue warnings (or duck!) They generally don't have time or interest in metals to say what is "ok" and what isn't... so they usually just advise to leave all "unknown" metals outside the magnetic area.

I'm just one of those weirdos that knowns the composition of all my EDC stuff ;)

Cheers,

Mark

Troy, perhaps each light should have a tracking history. 

For Example:  Reptiles, Philly,PA    (originally owned by Frenchy LED, France; Then by PSM, Titletown,FL)
Of course, this is my cheap way of trying to be on the prestigous list of elite flashaholics.... :evil6:

My light has been to France? cool.  Was Frenchy LED the 1st owner?

Somehow we're all just temporary owners since these lights (or at least the case) should last 8,000 years or more.

Cheers,

Mark

Yup, I'm in Pennsylvania.

I might keep my Ti Chameleon on a shelf... but the shelf is padded and weighs 1,565 pounds ;) [and good for 2.5 hours at 1200 degrees F.]
