    my first kydex sheet (carbon fiber pattern) and eyelets just arrived days ago. yesterday, tools for my DIY kydex press arrived - child's padding mat, 6mm drill part and some metal files for scouring the kydex sides. So far, my first two tries in making sheath were a failure. first one, I used a towel to press the hot kydex onto the knife which caused some deformations on the kydex. second one was I overheated the kydex and it actually shrunk.
    third try was a perfect press. will proceed with drilling for the eyelets and then trimming the sides,which will be a new learning curve on m part.

    I like lights which use a 1AAA battery and have used a 70 lumen Streamlight Protac 1AAA flashlight for several years. So when Streamlight came out with an upgraded 115 lumen version, I bought one.

    Thanks, but I prefer Eneloops for this application. I have a Microstream USB light which contains a 10440 for use when I need more light.

    What is hopefully the last in a long line, trying to find the perfect wallet. Also trying out a pocket organizer as a balance of space and convenience.[​IMG][​IMG]

    A pair of traffic wand attachments for my Olight S1R Mk 1 Baton, the TW-1 O (Orange), and the TW-1 W (White). Here's a little-known factoid - the White one is photoluminescent, meaning that it glows in the dark for a time, after you turn the flashlight off :D

    First tactical Crosshatch sling pack. For my new EDC pack . It has some really cool features like a back support that turns into an arm or leg splint!

    I have one of those, and I have been amazed at how handy it is.

    So, after the fs tops collection felt mostly "complete" (of the ones which interested me, except for a tungsten one, but oh well), a few other makers' incarnations caught my eye, and, like my 'Stangs, just waited till they all arrived to get 'em together in one shot, as Variations on a Top* (& the Yen Spin components have since been assembled to test it out):
