This flashlight has a cylinder behind the reflector. In the first setting, "spot", the switch not only turns on the light, but additionally, pushes the cylinder almost flush with the reflector, but still slightly behind it. In the second setting, "flood", the cylinder surrounds the bulb. Contrary to normal expectations, the flood setting narrows the spill of the light. Therefore the flood and spill settings seem to be reversed relative to the performance of the settings. This flashlight uses an
"MB-14" screw base bulb rather than the contemporary PR base bulbs.

I have this one plus another identical in every way except it's name brand, Lightmaster where the Homart name is on the other one. It also says Deluxe between the switch and Lightmaster name, nearest the switch.

Another minor difference however is the patent statement on the base cap. On the Homart it reads patent 124962, and on the Lightmaster it reads PATENT APPL'D FOR. Apparently one company merely made the units for another, but I don't know which came first!
