DO you know these torches? I bought the AA torch second hand from a donation shop and it's never worked. I've pulled it all to pieces and replaced the globe with brand new version and I found a blob of rust inside the barrel where the 2 AA batteries go which prevented them from entering the barrel. so I filed that rust blob out of the inside of the torch. now the batteries go into the torch. but no light turn on. is there a switch somewhere, or is it a twist mechanisum to turn on the torch. I have the case for it but no manual. it's a black metal torch. I've taken all parts out of the torch and put it all back together and still no light turns on. I used many batteries and even the ones from the TV remote, so I know they work in some other device. every component in screw in type so I don't think there's a circuit issue but there must be somewhere.
