Check this out guys> I made this video to show you that you don't need to spend 200 Plis dollars and put up with an arrogant attitude from a know distributor who would twist your arm and treat you like dirt making you believe he owns a unique treasure that only he could build.

Don't fly with the flock. Look around and read investigate and see for yourselves you have been ripped off if you have already bought that MASTER PIECE.

My ass is a master piece also but it is not for sale so don't even ask :D

ok, so 6 months ago I asked you about this light. spill the beans damn it..
this a totally different product. the previous one was a DJ light that I got from guitar center. This is a very small flash light. that I will try to put in the market when the time comes. (if it is possible) If not oh well I think you will need to get it from Larry.

a whole bunch of other will. there is no doubt. I don't think this baby is the best one out there. But after comparing side to side with some others in it's category, I can tell you it does what it needs to do to help you find the spots. If u have a better one congratulations. It is time you share which one it is so we can get the overly priced ones out of the market.

I built my own from parts ordered from Manafont in China. Took a couple months to get everything shipped but it was worth it. I am nearly positive Cobb is ordering parts from Manafont as well, although he is customizing the "drop-in" locally, which is actually pretty cool. His light is really good, but for $50 you can get similar results. See the links below for what I got, and it includes batteries and charger.

I bought 2 drop-ins to see if one works better than the other. So far no discernible difference so if anybody wants to order what I got you could omit one of the drop-in modules.

So does anyone want to buy my Larry Cobb UV light? No chemical purchase necessary, only been used once.

Martin, about your ass. If it's not for sale, is it for rent?:p

Not trying to steal your spotlight Martin, but does anyone own one of these UV lights? I was thinking not only would I use a UV light for pet urine stains in carpet cleaning, but also on my janitorial side of work. I could show potential clients what their current cleaning company is missing or I could piss off my own employees going behind them (evil either way, I know).


Or this little guy?



I was given one of these little key chain lights (regular led light) years ago for a gift ( I think I have an addiction to flashlights, my wife tells me anyway). It's been on my key chain for at least 3-4 years and it's still going strong. This little UV light may not be powerful, but you could keep it on your key chain (which you always have on you) for just in case.

Be careful on that one; once you show the clients ( in the janitorial field) how to find out if you are doing a good job or not, it can kick you in the rear.
Your guys are not doing the job to a point where you can actually bring in the client and show him a difference under a black light. you know it for god sake. It is janitorial work. To put pressure on your employees, it will work just fine.

That's what I was thinking. Dangerous.

John: I have a Nova little flashlight and recently purchased the larger light with multiple LED's, I think through Larry Cobb, both work well.
I worked in the machining trade most of my life and was involved with the manufacture of Streamlight flashlight products. If you only knew of the workmanship that goes into any of these lights it would amaze you at how anyone can offer them at prices such as $15. Bring on the China connection.

Who REALLY needs a flashlight anyway! Just plant your nose to the carpet and snort! If your not sure what the stain is, just lick the carpet for positive stain identification! It will save you $200.00 on a UV light.:eek:
