What pitch is your square thread?
I guess you wont be out in the shed today because of the heat.

Were you planning on using an e-switch? The tail switch is now the main switch or lock-out function?

Thumbs Up Very nice build! That will take some time to warm up, even with a 70.2. Is the led on a 20mm board? Any idea what current it draws? The beam looks impressive!

20mm board from kd. no idea of current I was hoping 7 or 8 amps,
I don’t think heat should be a problem,
