New from California with an odd LED project completed.
« on: March 18, 2012, 08:24:42 PM »
Hi all,

 I joined a large flashlight forum yesterday but found it was too slow trying to convey ideas with that forum's policy about no links. I belong to about 20 forums (and own one). and they are great way to get up to speed on any subject.

Yesterday I just bought over the Internet, an LED flashlight made in Oregon by the name of the Big Bruiser. I will share beam, throw, and flood pictures when I receive the light.

This was my last LED project. When I swapped out my Muncie M21 4 speed for a Tremec TKO 600 5 speed, I now had a modern transmission that has a reverse switch for back up lights. Years ago before LEDs, if I wanted extra bright back up lights, I had to wire a relay to save the switch in the tranny from high current. No need to now with LED, only 1.85 amp draw, plus I fabricated the light with a powerful magnet and coiled cord so it could double as a work light.

That would be from Elektro Lumens, a great maker of extremely powerful (and aptly named) lights.

Nice work on the back-up light!   :thumbup:
