P60 Styled Sinner Custom Host - "BLFP60-SCH" -

I’ve been thinking about making a BLFP60-SCHBLF P60 Sinner Custom Host” and I have some extremely great ideas. So far I have worked out the internal dimensions, The first prototype was made using Aluminium was a disappointment so I wont be posting any pictures just yet , but I’ll share the details once a rough prototype has been done.

This is going to be an all-custom host, and although the cost breakdown is not figured out yet, I’d like to keep the price close to $20 as much as possible and a minimum of 50 hosts to reach that price point so I will also need the developers/members to commit to a certain number of hosts , one host per person for now.

This thread is open to discussion, suggestions etc.

More to come..

Are you using the complete ass from a P60 which includes the oem pill or using a separate screw in type pill? I hope that makes sense.

The pill is OEM style but 5mm larger and made from copper. The OEM pill can also be used.

Thanks Marc, I have a great feeling about this, I’ve always wanted to make a P60 compatible light.

Put me down for at least one, possibly two. I might be able to build a 5A module simply just because, and a more practical 2.5 or 2.8A module for every day stuff.

Ooh, what about lens, clicky, boot? If not, I have to add those to my shopping list…

Lens, clicky+boot+spacer included, also the clicky can be replaced with Mattaus’s e-switch or mcClicky by just unscrewing/screwing the retaining ring.

Also I have to work out further options yet, Instead of everyone buying small parts I will add them to the hosts myself at probably no additional costs.

Lets see.

Any thoughts on a screw in pill? The thread on a P60 is 20mm x 1mm pitch. If this was made around 12mm long the reflector would screw on one end and a 17mm driver pocket could be machined in the other and the assembly screwed into the head/body. This would allow for a better heat transfer to the body.

It will, but it might also make it complex for some. The goal is to keep it simple and budget. But a simple threading wouldnt hurt i guess, I might just make one like you said and see how it turns out , it is a great idea.

So it’s currently a host plus copper pill and reflector only at this stage at a goal price point of $20. If we want things like lens, clicky+boot+spacer, then that would be at an additional cost, possibly at cost to you.

It’s still a good price IMHO.

All said and done if you could do a host kit around 35-40 shipped I would be happy.

I’ve seen your other work and it looked exceptional.

If it works out to be something I can just install a regular P60 drop-in and somewhere around 20 then great!!
If not maybe there could be a “economy” model for folks like me who don’t (can’t) get too fancy.

Please count me in.

It will be a complete host kit, @mhemling33

Only emitter+driver is needed.

I just hope everything goes as planned.

Count me in for two right now, possibly more. Can never have enough p60 hosts. Also will the pills be available alone as well?

Edit: if there is a lot of interest count me in for one, so others have the chance to get one. Otherwise count me in for two.

Definitely in for one, possible in for 3 depending on just how good they turn out.

Will the drop in need wrapping or are you going to size the host just perfect?
