#1 - My First Attempt. Named Chatter Star :) because it was my first, and well, yes, lots of chatter....
6061 Aluminum, SF E Series compatible threads. was meant to use CR2 body but was too long. Ended up using and AW IMR 16340 with fairly dented in ends to fit properly. Made on a Harbor Freigh mini-lathe.
#2 - Let's just jump right to Damascus :) . This is the proto for the Deuce
4340 + 1050 Steels, Triple Nichia 219b, uses 18350 battery. Made on a Harbor Freigh mini-lathe.
#3 - CR2 Mule or also known as "the light that killed the mini-lathe".
Solid Nickel 201 Body, Damascus mule head. SF E Series compatible threads. Uses McGizmo style engine. Killed the lathe twice on the Nickel 201. Sort of the turning point. If I wanted to keep going, I needed to do something about the lathe I was using. Go Big or Go home right? Since this isn't the last on the list, we know what happened :)
#4 - 18350 Nickel Silver, Deuce Body Styl, but start of the 3 ringed heads
Nickel Silver. Started out as an 18650 battery design, and due to some technical difficulties :0 it was salvaged into this 18350 light.

Uses McGizmo style engine. I only did the head on this light. Body is McGizmo Aleph, and tail is from RPM.
#8 & 9 - 18650 Triples, Nickel Silver and Brass
More of the Deuce Body grip style and 3 ringed heads.
#10 - 16340 single emitter, Damascus and Titanium (Head Only)
Another one where I just made the head. I had a small piece of the original Del Ealy Damascus from the Mr. Bulk DamCham run, and a small piece of Ti, and I decided to create a 2 metal head to go along with the 2 metal Tain Nova body that it's paired with. Uses a McGizmo style engine and a reflector I cut down to fit the small head.
