    Enjoy






    Ironiclly.. had i waited a week or two before ordering this i could of gotten his already "hollowed out" hollow RF with lens.. *sigh*

    Going to make my own.. Two LEDs blinking alternative with the use of a transistor and perhaps two/three condensators (?? not sure if they are called that in english) and a white or green light which shines out the clear lens.. or i'm going to paint the lens with glasspaint. haven't decided. Oh.. and a tiltswtich & battery ofcourse..

    condensators = resistors.

    If you don't get around to making one I can sell you one of mine, the development of my one is about 60% done.

    I'm not 100% but i'm pretty sure that is not what i meant. The resistor increases the resistans and hightens the voltage (If i remmeber my physics correct) but the thing i'm talking about is one of those things that takes time to charge up and then releases the current only to charge up again...

    anything particular you used for the lens??? I'll be hollowing out an old hollow BM rangefinder soon and am on the lookout for a lens....I was thinking plexiglass,but not too sure yet.

    I used 4mm thick plexiglas.. but don't use a dremel tool to cut it out. the high speed only melts the plastic and sticks to the blade making an uneven cut. I used a really fine toothed hand saw.. (bowfile in englsih ??)
