My Tekna-Lite 2 bulb is corroded to its surround/shield/shroud--whatever you call it. I'll need that part as well as a new bulb. Don't see the shroud on your parts list.

I've had a Tekna Lite II since late seventies and it has been dependable and robust. I'd agree with previous comments that the beam leaves a lot to be desired. My version is different to the one pictured in that the perspex lense protrudes about 10mm further than the twister, whilst the 2AA battaries fit down a spring that runs the entire length of the torch body. I too will upgrade to an LED in near future.

I have an orange one that batteries leaked in. I put some vinegar in it and scraped the contacts that are black and corroded. Maybe placing some aluminum foil in the bottom will make it work again?

I have one of these lites that I found in the Desert several years ago, it is like new and works great. It had no batteries in it and the bulb was bad.

Again, mine has a yellow body/black twister--had trouble getting it to work until I pulled the long tweezer/spring apparatus out to find corrosion on the spring. Brushed it off thoroughly with a small wire brush and on came the lite after reloading. Then the bulb blew!!! On to find a source for the bulbs. tc

Mine NEVER worked properly with a poorly fixed pattern of light and inability to adjust beam. As it was gifted to me by a famous scientist, I kept it but now it may leap into the recycle bin for some other sucker who wants to play with it...

Tekna made a flasher version of this light, as well as a strobe. The strobe had a higher clear lens ring so the stobe flash could be seen from the side. The case came in black and orange. Excellent products. I see a company called Tektite is selling replacement parts for these excellent little lights.

I 've owned one of these great flashlights since the late seventies and was amazed to find the other day that it still works. Even the o'ring is supple and seals well. I am thinking of upgrading mine to an LED light from Tekta. A lot of the flashlights put out today by Tetka look like variations of the Tekna Lite 2.
