Welcome back for another exciting episode of...FLASHLIGHT  FRIDAY! I have been cleaning up some more battery operated, lighted beauties,
from our past and I ran into this hell of a handheld. Made from the very popular RayOvac company, this 6 volt handheld was the Hot rod of
flashlights back in 1960's....



Classy black and gold paint with cool foil decal. The Nite Hawk name was used on several of their flashlights and represented the best of the best in styling and functionality...



Battery compartment can be reached by rotating headlamp and opening from the rear...

On board switches can be operated by your thumb, with an easy sliding movement..


Original hang tag went over the specifics on operating this piece. Want to see this beauty throw a beam?
I can't hear you.....


That's only the half of it. Want to see more?...


Built in emergency blinker in the handle! What, What? and just when you thought it was over, this old girl has another trick? By dropping a few Viagra in the battery compartment and closing it....Wahlah!...Lol...


After bulb gets warms, it flashes to draw attention to you needs. Just a fabulous handheld flashlight that stood the test of time in functionality and styling. As always thanks for l@@king! Feel free to post some of your flashlight related finds...campinut...

First we hear that Lancaster Lanterns is bringing back the Night Hawk, now this!  Darkness will be no more!!
Seriously, that’s a nice one Russ.  I always enjoy it when you share these classic beauties with us.

Looking for 6-56 and 6-58 Birthday lanterns.
There's been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about.

Yay, Flashlight Friday!
I love the square / round-ie-ness of that one.  Very stylish.  Also, that exciting popcicle accessory is just tooooo much, man!

Thanks, Russ!  I was needing a FFF (Flashlight Friday Fix).  Awesome flashlight and thanks for sharing!
That is way too cool!  If that were sold now, it would still be a hot rod!   Dang, I'm going to have to keep a sharper eye out for flashlights.


Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.

Wow!  Very cool.  And it takes “D” cells!

The best part is that it uses regular D batteries... I am not a fan of strange and hard to find batteries.
Can't sleep, squirrels will eat me....

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

That's a neat one. I picked one up I'll show for Flashlight Friday, it's a Bright Star 2208 lantern for hazardous locations. Apparently it belonged to Earl at some point. Uses two of the 6V lantern batteries and casts a really good beam. I enjoy Flashlight Friday!

I have no idea on the vintage. I would guess in the mid 1970's to mid 1980's? No Viagra for this one, Lord knows what would happen!

Why is there never enough time to do it right but always enough time to do it over?
That's great, Russ, but I wish I hadn't seen this post late in the evening...too excited to sleep now!
Nifty light there that I've never seen before...

Thanks guys! Found this one in an antique/cheese store in Wisconsin for $20. I love finding them in the wild versus online. Something about the thrill of the hunt. Great 12 volt lantern Earl..errr, I mean Doug..lol..I have an older Delta that runs off these spring top batteries. Thanks for the comments and post..campinut.

Ha, Ha, Jason, if you ever been to Wisconsin? You would know what I'm talking about. They are proud of their cheeses as they push it everywhere. I was never a big cheese fan so they had no power over me or my bowels..lol..campinut..

Sam- a trick to try to remove evidence of "Earl". I know this works with Sharpie, but take and "color" over Earl, and quickly wipe it with a cloth before it dries. Do one letter at a time, or less, maybe 1/4 of a letter. The solvent in the ink should reanimate the writing.

And then, check your trunk for Earl.
Einstein, when describing radio said "Wire telegraph is like a very long cat. You pull his tail in NY and he meows in LA. And radio works the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."
Slick and Clean.  Nice one Russell.
