Reatta penlight in portfolio needs repairs

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a photo of a metal part that would fit in the barrell of the flashlight. I have all of the parts except some sort of metal to make contact to complete the circuit to light the bulb. If someone out there could send me a photo of the metal parts I am sure I could make something. I can make it work with a paperclip but that is a bit unrelable and crude. Anybody would be appreciated

It's just an 'L'-shaped piece of tin that provides continuity between the negative contact of the battery and the body of the flashlight which is the negative path from the bulb. Doesn't have to be that substantial, aluminum foil might be a good kludge.
