    Humm... I heard about this. Rumor has it those guys on the flashlight forum are crazy! Or maybe I started that going around.

    Got any particularly interesting photos to share?

    I was a flashlight nerd at one time. I will try to dig out a few old treasures and post.

    I have one of these for instance:

    I also have collected mechanics hand tools, and records. Both kind of went by the wayside after I got married (going on 8 years now.)

    The tools fell off because I can't afford them and the family both. Wright, Armstrong, SK, Williams... I still have everything, just not buying anymore. I'm glad I bought what I did while I could.

    The records? Those are all boxed up downstairs, and I pray that the girls never pull them out. Too many questions I don't want to answer. I really should sell them.

    i probably spent 40-45 k on snap-on tools since 1992.. most are sold now..but they were my work tools,plus i owned a shop in the last years..got tired of it, property was sold ,now i just service write at a friends shop..still have enough to work on my cars, if you can work on a car or 3 at home,even just your own cars, they will earn their keep..

    I collect animation art, fountain pens (both vintage & modern) and Swarovski crystal figurines. The art collection includes pieces dating back as far as 1914.

    Oh yes, us that belong to the top secret flashlight society are all nighters. ;) it's actually funny because my youngest son was over last night and he told me that his son (my grandson) had stolen :angelic007: his work flashlight, the boy is 6! Where could he have taken it?
    Anyway, I think everyone needs a good a sold flashlight so I gave him my SureFire, I'm 100% sure that it'll be lost/stolen in a short time but it's important he has a good one
    A new rule of thumb is I don't spend more than $25 now on flashlights, always buy rechargable batteries, trying to do my part saving the planet. I'll get some together when I charge the batteries and take a picture.
