Homemade flashlight headband mount - tam mount, headband, flashlight, Homemade,
This is what I've been tinkering around these days. As usual, I've recycled a piece of garbage (3mm plastic sheet) and combined it with a high-tech item (Petzl Tikka XP Adapt headband, top strap and mount removed) to get something I needed.

You'd also need a length of elastic cord and an appropriate stopper, piece of an old mousepad, some basic tools and a 1,5 hrs of your spare time.

Now the flashlight can angle down to illuminate close-up work. Images are pretty self-explanatory:







I've tested this headband with 1xAAA and compact 1XAA headlamps (such as Fenix LD15) and found out it's OK for household tasks, car maintenance and vigorous walking.

DIY Cellphone/Smartphone Tripod Mount - tam Mount, Tripod, CellphoneSmartphone,
New cellphones and smartphones are capable of capturing quality stills and video, so lots of people I know regard them as true EDC image recorders, readily available and more handy than ordinary P&S digital cameras and DSLRs. But mobile devices don't usually come with a threaded adapter for a mini tripod or g0rillapod, and sometimes you may need to use a countdown timer, elliminate camera shake or do a proper pan during video capture...

There are few smartphone threaded mounts which are commercially available, but a friend of mine was preparing for a holiday in Greece and he couldn't wait for an overseas shipment, so I've collected usual junk from my drawers and embarked on a summer afternoon project. My wife's Nokia 7610 Supernova body-doubled as a smartphone.

Documented as a Youtube slideshow (short tutorial is provided in the video itself and in comments on YT page):
