What I Fixed Today
What I Fixed Today (WIFT#1)
The start of something new. Becoming known as the Mr Fixit - seldom a day goes by without having to rack my brain and innovate a new solution to put something back into operation.
In this inaugural post we have a cool zoomable LED flashlight.
When received it arrived with a loose switch assembly, a spring and besides the flashlight body and battery holder not much else.
Basiclly it did not work!
First - manufactured a small 4mm dia x 5mm aluminium tube inside the spring loaded switch activtor. Determined a 4mm spacer was missing between the switch assembly and the battery holder. Added a Lexan retaining ring to secure the switch assembly inside the threaded housing. Arranged a support for the central battery / switch contact.
Hey presto! One amazing working flashligh - if only this was mine ;)
