    I may not be the best at grammar, but I see nothing wrong with his sentence except the missing period. "Burnt nice hole on my jacket"

    Two words are missing and understood. This is a common practice in English. The complete version would read:

    It burnt a nice hole on my jacket.
    or using the noun flashlight:
    The flashlight burnt a nice hole on my jacket.

    Burnt IS the past tense of the verb burn. Looking at the second definiation of burn, "destroy, damage, or injure by heat or fire."

    I see many mistakes in spelling and grammar here but I try to be tolerant and not constantly point them out. This is an amateur machining board, not one on English grammar or spelling. We all have different talents.

    Describing as an identifier, your burnt jacket. (past participle).
    Like your toast had burned, now you have burnt toast.
    Not everything is burnt. Some time in it's life, it had burned.

    Now are you going to weld it up, or weld it out.?

      Is that what you call a "smart" flashlight ??

        Solly, never really learnt any English grammar in school. Hell, I suck even on my native language...
        If nothing else then I'm torn between British and US English.
        100% British english at school, movies 90% US, telly 50/50% and various forums with all sorts of Doozers...
        Guys, I should like to point out that Matti's English is perfect. Which is not true for 98% of the 'merkins on this forum.

        How's your Finnish?

                    Armytek Wizard is actually more than that around here.
                    I went actually looking for Lumonite Compass R but local shop had prized it at over 200 USD so I settled for the lot cheaper Armytek.

                    I have collection of cheapies also but Armytek is one of the cheapest flashlights in its class:
                    -1000Lm or more output (2300Lm for Armytek)
                    -single 18650 cell
                    -properly regulated drive electronics
                    -latest high efficiency Cree LED

                        Any device with a Li-Poly or Li-Ion battery larger than a single AA cell should be carried in a fireproof bag on any public conveyance (but particularly aircraft):

                            just to stir the waters a bit, how about the past tense of "to drag", eg. "I drugged this machine home"

                              No, that would be "I drug this machine home"
