FINISHED pinkpanda's entry for 7th Annual BLF Old-Lumens Scratch-build contest!

Following DavidEF’s lead… Wink

Since there are no rules (yet) I’ll make my own – all the same rules as before except I have no time limit (yet) Silly

Prize will be…. well I never received a prize before and honestly I’m not that interested anyway.

Judges, can be the peoples choice awards (if it comes to that).

I just really want to be a part of it again since this is probably the best part of BLF imo . I also like to think Old-Lumens lives on in BLF.

The build – machine category

I haven’t finalised the details but I’ve got something in mind with this superconductor bar but it’s going to be a real challenge since it’s a little short to make a complete host with.

Cooled with liquid helium or just liquid nitrogen? Smile

Liquid nitrogen in this case.

Maybe you have enough material for a 16340?

Looking forward to your built.

The electronic tail switch crossed my mind, but i think I would need to ordre new running gear. Led4power drivers are not e-switch compatible.

A light skim to pretty it up. One end is much better looking than the other.

I did some rough sketches to try and work out how to make it all fit. I don’t think I can make it all fit without using another metal to try and extend it in some way or other. I had intentions to make better blueprints but I can’t settle in my head what the final design should be. So I’m just going to start making it from one end and work out the rest when I get to it.

Can’t see pictures.
You’re not working on this light now are you..?
Because that would be unfair and against the entry rules, if the competition does start.

I could send you back the spare Nukes I bought for you, for the sake of seeing such build. Big Smile
I wonder what would they do with 3V XHP50.2…

I’ll keep that in mind, would mean ordering a momentary driver & other headache stuff too and I’m behind with builds as usual.
Anyway, lets stop spamming pinks Rebelcheatin’buildthread with off topic chat Big Smile

It wouldn’t be blf if we didn’t get side tracked Big Smile Pics above should be fixed now.

I made the pill. I hope I left enough room for the wires.

Looks good pp. Your skills are coming along in leaps and bounds. I’d say theres heaps of room for wiring. Smile

Nice build so far! I’m glad my post brought some kinda response, but I didn’t expect a rogue build! Crazy

According to the seller this is NIOBIUM TITANIUM ALLOY. I’m assuming the orange part is copper and not cupronickel.

Wiki says there is a couple different varieties – Superconductor material classes include chemical elements (e.g. mercury or lead), alloys (such as niobium-titanium, germanium-niobium, and niobium nitride), ceramics (YBCO and magnesium diboride), superconducting pnictides (like fluorine-doped LaOFeAs) or organic superconductors (fullerenes and carbon nanotubes; though perhaps these examples should be included among the chemical elements, as they are composed entirely of carbon).

Thanks- i think it will look great and unique when turned down exposing the different alloys.

That’s the plan. I am far from the first person to do this but this material is not nearly as popular as steel damascus, mokume or timascus.

The steel sounds and looks really really expensive. Cash
