Petrol bath to remove the dome, clean with isopropyl alcohol, spray a bit of LEDseal into a cup, pick up some liquid LEDseal with the end of a chopstick, apply drop onto top of naked LED.

Please restock that holster you had. I bought one with a battery order to check it out. It fits the Solarforce L2 style lights perfectly. Will order many the next time there in. Glad to see you’re able to restock so quickly on those Panasonics.

Hi Texas Shooter,  I have about 30 on the way.  It is a very nice holster for the money.  Will update here when I receive them.

Nice.

Does the layer affect the beam in any noticeable way compared to a de-domed emitter without the layer?

Nope.  Probably won't be for a few weeks.  I'll update here when ready... still not even sure if what I'm working on is going to work out.

IT IS NOT MISSING ANY PHOSPHOR OR ANYTHING ELSE. I'm picking photos that best show the LEDseal, not the die - if the pic shows the die clearly, the LEDseal is invisible. There are strange reflections off the very shiny LEDseal. These pics have to use an external light source and no flash, otherwise they don't work. Very hard to get a pic that shows an accurate representation of what it is.

Doesn't seem to affect either the beam profile or tint. I've taken before and after beamshot pics of the same light with and without the LEDseal, I can't tell them apart.

Oh man, you shoulda been here! Richard popped in some top celebs from Hollywood with his time machine, the press was here (pesky varmints!) must’ve been a couple hundred people. Music, laughter, drinks, confetti flying around, it was awesome!

Then he pushed his little button on the time machine and Poof! All gone! Even the confetti! No mess, no fuss, felt like a king for about , oh, 3 minutes. Silly

Edit: (He said something about billing me??? I didn’t even see no ponies! And it wasn’t me that kissed Katy Perry! I didn’t do it! Or did I? Wink )

It would probably be best to not discuss Ponies.Surprised DBCstm is a little strange, after all.Tongue Out

and this is, (or used to be), a sales thread...

RMM, I have to say the shipping times are great, products have all been great too. Keep up the good work.

Aww come on Justin! Everybody knows BLF is THE Home of HiJacked threads!

Just placed an order - wow, $100 goes quick, and I still wanted more stuff but some were out of stock. Hoping I got the last Convoy C8 host, wanted 2 but only 1 in stock.

Thanx RMM!

The only thing holding me back from ordering is to see when, if ever, the LAST stuff I ever order from China arrives. Then I can do a proper battery inventory and see where I really stand.

I’m also kind of waiting for RMM to get more Convoy S2sin stock – those are wonderfully functional hosts. (I like S4s even better, if only they weren’t so tight in the chamber.)

Tumbleweed, do you have a drill? A hacksaw?

Get a 1/2” wooden dowel, cut a slit into it the length of an 18650 cell with the hacksaw. (You might use say 6” of dowel, 2” or so for the groove) Slip a piece of sandpaper (cut the same width as the groove) into the groove with about an inch sticking out one side and wrap the sandpaper around the dowel. Might have to wrap another sheet on top of that to get the right thickness or a larger dowel to start with. You can always thread a bolt into the dowel’s end for mounting in the drill if necessary. (Like if you have a 3/8” chuck in your drill, you could drill a pilot hole in the end and then thread a bolt in, mount this bolt in your drill. The truer you hole the easier to spin faster.) Slip this sandpaper wrapped dowel tight into your battery tube, spin it slowly or moderate speed to sand the inside of the tube. Voila! Adjusted fit to your cells!

Anybody can do it, really easy.

I once bought a Taurus 7 shot .357 Magnum that the cylinder cartridge holes were too close tolerance. Shoot a couple of rounds through it and the third reload the empties were stuck. Sent it to Brazil and they said it was within spec. So I used this technique to open it up the slightest bit and polish the chambers, no more issues.

Might help to mention that it was a Titanium gun. The Ti didn’t handle the heat well at the chamber’s with thin walls and repeated shooting. At least not when it was too close. Would have been a fantastic little gun with a 5 shot cylinder and some meat between the chambers…

Excellent customer service! Maybe too good. My wife ordered me some goodies for Christmas from my Christmas list… She was flustered, when I talked to her on my lunch break. She received a message back from her order to see where she wanted to have the 7135’s stacked – more on the side of the MCU or some on the side with the spring. “What the hell is a 7135? Does it matter with the MSU -C whatever! Agh why don’t you like normal stuff?” Bless her heart. She spoils me. Thanks for the help RMM. Merry Christmas.

I just read my last post, it almost sounds angry. I was aiming for comical. The customer service is excellent, contacting the buyer to make sure to offer the best set up for their individual build is awesome! The fact my wife couldn’t understand the words was hilarious. I will be coming back to buy again. Prices are great and that level of service just can’t be beat.
