I just got my steamship back from the shop. To my surprise this hand torch was sitting on the boiler cask. A mechanic must have left it behind. I’ll return it after my daughter uses it Trick-or-Treating. Good thing the intake tubing doubles as a lanyard.

Step 1: Find Your LED Lights

First I picked up a press light from the home improvement store. My hat off to Sylvania on the construction. It was VERY well made and took more effort than I expected to tear down.

I took the 3 LED setup and the chromed back plate.
are you German? Who has this at home? nicely done but how are we to make something like this, without those machines
<p>This is fricken aweeeesome!!!!! I love it! :)</p>
<p>I LOVE this flashlight. I know this is an older posting but me and my husband have just come across it. Are there more detailed instructions on how to build this if I download the PDF? Thank you so much for sharing this project. </p>
<p>This looks super sweet man...</p>
<p>Man this looks cool.</p>
I love the style of this - it looks awesome! Have you made anything else steampunk? :)
My only other attemp was the music in the video for this. :)
you know I truly hate you....-grumbles- just kidding!!! <br> <br>your my hero...I love this.
Great job, I really like the fact you used other parts to construct it instead of just decorating a functional one, I admire the fun aspect of your project, I often take the fun out of mine by overthinking the details, I really like the variety of materials and style.
Fantastic old flashlight with modern interior. Congratulations with your prize!
Once again, very impressive project! Amazing craftsmanship!!!
Awesome! <br>One question, Why is a steampunk flashlight (and other steampunk related items) so complicated and over designed? Isn't a flashlight only a light bulb, a reflector, a lens, a battery, and a switch? Crazy punks. you'd think with all that rigamarole it would light up like a saber.
Because it runs on high voltage, and a steam reservoir. Steampunk tends not to use anything less than 10,000 volts for anything. :)
I don't know about that, but I think the thing is cool myself. Great wirehacking job :) <br> <br>Now YOU might want to go to Walmart and get a 2 dollar flashlight ... but this one not only produces light. It also emanates the creativity of the designer. That's why it's cool :) <br> <br>Seriously ... <br> <br>Lynn
Great design! So cool! I am insanely jealous of your workshop, too. :)
Thanks. Just 2 years ago my &quot;workshop&quot; was a piece of scrap carpet on concrete.
Not bad. The bed in my trailer converts into a computer repair shop during the daytime, then I move all my computer stuff somewhere else to sleep. We hackers use what we can and do what we can. I love your projects ... <br> <br>Lynn in New Orleans, LA.
You know, you leave me gob smacked each time you post a new project. If you won't marry me, will you adopt me? ;-)
Cute :) :)
I now pronounce you Mrs. CrimsonCrow-Balleng:)
You made my morning!
This is a very well made flash light! Thank you for your excellent post.
Thanks for the complement.
Now this is really COOL!!!!... :D <br>voted for this!!!... :))
Awesome! Thanks for the vote!
This is awesome!
