You can improve the beam shape and focus considerably by using a
plastic lens from a disposable camera. You should be able to get a bag
full free from a friendly photo-processor. Sometimes you can get
whining about how dangerous they are, and yes the flash cap does hold

screwdriver! So now I use a big ugly old screwdriover normally
reserved for opening cans.
