16mm XP-... boards for reflow, Where????

Hi guys, I am in a bit of a pickle once again. I have ordered the wrong size boards from Cutter (should have gotten the 20mm rather then 10mm)

I am after 16mm boards (for p60’s) for XP-G, XT-E and XP-E LEDs. If you know of anywhere that sells these for less then $0.5 each including postage please stick a link up… I have searched high and low but the only places I can find are illumination supplies ($0.5 + postage which will probably mean they end up being $1 per board) and a chinese seller on AliExpress who only sells lots of 100-500 ($0.2 each though including postage however I don’t need 100 of them, only about 20: anyone want to go 1/5ths?).

Any help hugely appreciated!

Side thought:
Darn it my Solarforce clicky just broke!

KD has 16mm boards that are a little bit expensive at $0.70 per for a pack of 5.

I've used their 14mm boards, which are $0.40-0.45 per for packs of 5, and they worked fine in a P60.  A lot of commercial P60 drop-ins use 14mm boards.

Thanks guys!

Looks like there are quite a few 16mm XML boards available quite cheaply: does anyone know if they are compatible with the smaller XP and XT footprints?

Found these as well: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/510155392/16mm_LED_Aluminum_Board_for_... so have sent a inquiry (I wonder if the supplier: KD means KaiDomain? (ironically I Googled XML boards and these came up).

XML boards are not compatible with 3.45mm emitters like Cree XP-G, XP-E, XT-E, Nichia 219, etc.

Beware I heard some of these cheap boards has lower thermal conductivity.

Sorry, as usual I read the post, but it didn’t compute in this mess of a mind.

16mm from Kaidomain – XP-G
