If somebody will be able to supply 17mm boost drivers, I would make S2+ pills for single led.

Those would run XHP Leds? I would buy driver and pill Evil


Im waiting any progress in this direction.
S2+ triple pills will gone soon, I have to decide should I make more of them or single led version will be more actual (with modern leds and drivers).

I have some P60 quad shells that dont fit retaining rings (neither custom or convoy) so you will have to use solder to fix driver in place. $7/piece valid until stocked

Height-wise, could you guess if it’d be possible to use a 26mm TIR lens? The mcpcb could “float” under the TIR (worst case I’d use thermal adhesive vs regular AS5), so I’m not too concerned about the ridge holding it in place.

A regular D26 pill would be too short to hold the TIR in place without having it rattle around, but I’m wondering if this pill to hold a quad might be too long.

You can use it if you will solve two problems:
1. Fix the tir in right position
2. Fill extra height (I guess near 4mm) between head and body with some ring.

Standard pill, or for the quad?

My biggest issue is that I don’t have much to actually do metalwork of any kind. Files, hacksaws, etc., but no metal stock, lathes, etc.

That’s why I figure even if the quad pill (raising up the shelf to hold the smaller height of the pcb+TIRs) could if anything be filed down somewhat, that would be more workable than trying to make my own spacer to “lift” a standard pill, or else I’d just need a spacer like one used in an S2+ triple.

What’s the height difference between the quad pill and standard pill?

(I don’t intend to run the triple too hot at all, if that helps.)

As some of you know, near a year ago Ive started to provide cnc made parts. This improved quality and abilities, but I couldnt provide rare parts anymore so I had to refuse when got pm with custom request.
I dont like to leave somebody dissapointed, I would like to give the last chance so anyone could make any pill Ive ever made.
List, from big to small:
Courui D01
Small Sun ZY-T08
HD-2010
Brynite B158 (4pcs reserved)
P60 single led stock reflector (7/10 pcs reserved, production delayed until September)
Ultrafire or another brand SK68 clone
Surefire type E?

I can make any of them last time (MOQ=5pcs, GB open) $25/20/15/10/10/10/10, or
sell any die (tool that I used to make good quality calibrated threads) just for $10.

I’m interested in the C8TT head but do you have the updated version of SS bezel? With sharp crenellations instead of wavy. Like in the C8+.

Thanks

You can pm me, I will combine set without bezel for you, if you can get bezel yourself.

Im sorry I didnt get the problem the first time I read your message.

I never heard about different batches of SS bezels. I appreciate Simon, he made big batch of them (without bezels this project was not possible). But as I can see all vendors (Simon/Fasttech/Banggood/Gearbest) provide same bezel that is included with my set.

Im not good in photographing and in most cases I prefer customers photos to my own. By some reason SS bezel was not used with the build, builder left stock bezel and this (wave shape) is what you see on the photo. Bezel that included to the set have sharp crenellations.

So does this mean that we can put in an order for any of the above parts? If so, I would like to get 2 x p60 singe led pills.

The P60 single led is it with a retaining ring or do you solder the driver ?

No retaining ring, solder or press fit.

I recommend custom rings if you will use driver with components on both sides.

$3.00 for a custom machined brass ring sounds reasonable to me, certainly better than soldering one in
