****Copper Eagle Eye X6 heatsinks****(design)

Hey guys im looking to have some eagle eye x6 heatsinks made for the current GB and i want to hear some input on how many i should have made ect..........

 

:Note the top of the HS is notched for a O-Ring

 

Would u guys like it to be one piece or have it 2 pieces for use with a reflector ???

like this below

 

if using a Ledil Cute-3 optics for a build u can put the HS like this >

Depends on quantity i think i can get them for around $15-20 each being copper

I’m interested!
I’d probably only be using it for a triple build like DBCstm’s, so one part is fine, but that’s just me.

I would be in for at least one of either type.
Get a price on AL if you can, might get more people interested at a lower price.

Thanks for doing this.
Hope you can make it work.

I would be interested in a couple. Suggestion though....because of the mass there will be more than plenty to transfer heat. 6061 Aluminum should cut your costs way down...not just for material costs but also production time. It is easier and quicker to get a finish on 6061 than copper.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most

I would be in for 6061 rather than copper and I would only use it for a triple

Two for triple builds. Aluminum is preferred due to cost and weight.

At 50 pieces he quoted me $10 each on aluminum and i can do for say 30pcs of aluminum and 20 copper but it will be more than the cost of aluminium ? I'm not a machinist but is $10 fair or should i look into someone else

Seems like a good price.

Did you see how many cuts he would have to make????
Will this also have the center hole drilled ????

I think 50 in AL would go fast, let the people who want copper eat cake Smile

$10 is very fair. I thought about making my own but if I can buy them at $10 it just is not worth it for me to make my own or for anybody to try and lose some fingers.

I will take two to start.......NEXT...

I would like one either way on aluminum that way I can do a triple. Copper depends on the price

Thanks

Been wanting a smaller sized triple for a while!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1 aluminum quad for me please. It would be really neat to have holes drilled and tapped for the screws that come with the X6 to screw the star to the heat sink. Might be a PITA for various builds though. At any rate I’m up for at least one for now.

I don’t recall at this moment all of the headaches that Dale experienced squeezing an MTG2 into his but the idea of this light with an MTG2 and a TIR is intriguing to me. Perhaps with this TIR Like Ouchyfoot did with his Convoy M1 then it could just be easier to get the M1 and a slug of copper.

I would be in for a copper one to suit the 32mm triple with ledil optic. As long as it comes in under $30 I’m happy.

IIRC, Dale was more impressed with his triple (or was it the quadruple?) than the MT-G2 he did in the same light. He did also say that you have to purposely crush two 18350’s to make them fit in the tube.

Sounds good nitro. I want to do the exact same set up as Dale has done in the intl-outdoor 32mm interest thread, but in copper. I will 100% be in for one and possibly a second depending on the final price including freight. But it would depend a little on the time frame we are working on here so I’m keen to hear updates as they happen.

just to show it again this is what im shooting for in copper for the intl-outdoor 32mm board not nice looking as the quad heatsink due to the large 32mm board

Looks good to me. I haven’t checked the size requirements on mine so I will just assume they are correct for what we are wanting to do.

I made the triple one and it worked out fine. Based on that, I also made the quad. Seeing as how I don’t have a lathe or all that fancy equipment, mine isn’t as fancy as the updated diagram.

The Quad makes 2500 lumens with XP-G2 S3 3C emitters. The Triple can make 4040 lumens with XP-L V6 2C emitters. With the Ledil Cute-3 the XP-L doesn’t need to be de-domed, so there’s no tint loss or lumens loss. V5 2D emitters give me ~3800 lumens and V4 3D emitters made ~3300 lumens.

Yes, I have made 3 triples, with the last one having an aluminum sink exactly as pictured. And one Quad, with a more primitive sink but essentially the same as the one pictured.

While I do very much like the X6 with the Quad, the triple is just exceptional! The larger TIR lenses and the style of the lens, it looks awesome and just works.

FET drivers of course, and the best IMR cells I could use. Wights A17DD-S08 is single sided and fits into the X6 like it was made for it. Wink

ok guys the head of the light was dropped off today to my machinist, he will be making me a sample for $35 not to bad since it will take time and lots of precision on this one. this will not be the final price lol 

 

Oh he is also making me a software CD encase down the road we need more Smile
