Visit this maker's website: Photon Fanatic. After a variety of ?regular? jobs, from retailer, to publisher, to investor relations director, Fred Pilon, is now designing and making custom flashlights on his Swiss lathe. His interest in flashlights was piqued 10 years ago when he took up the sport of rogaining?competitive orienteering over 24 hours?demanding good lighting for the night portion. One thing led to another and hand-held LED flashlights now occupy him full-time.Today, Pilon produces one-of-kind high-brightness LED flashlights which are sold to collectors worldwide. When demand warrants, production of some lights is directed to a cooperative local CNC machine shop that specializes in aerospace components, but the electronics and assembly work is still performed by his company, Photon Fanatic, Inc., located in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts.
