Are there 2 holes + the notches cut on the side? JW what the reason behind this is? I don’t have much experience with other lights besides p60 drop ins

The two holes will not be that large but those are for the mounting screws, and yes there will be 2 notches on the side to run your wire to the solder pads

The holes will be exactly that size. That was the size (#4 Screw Clearance) you asked me to add.

I am currently extremely busy with work. Please do not expect a response from me quickly. I will be dropping in as time permits, but the amount of time I can dedicate to responding to topics and PMs is very limited.

The further the negative and positive pads are to the outer diameter the better clearance you will have on any reflector to prevent shorts.

+1

Wire cut-outs and holes for mounting screws are simply too large. Even solder pads could be a little smaller (narrower).

I agree but there are pros and cons. Further out leaves more room for optic or spacer, further in favors trimming. I’m undecided on them as I use 20 mm boards for AA mods and 10 mm boards for solitaires but leaning towards a buy of ten pcs just to help get them done. Overall, I’d favor pads farther out since one can always scrape the trace area for more pad to move it in but you can’t move it out.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

hey guys im testing the water and seeing who wants 16mm copper boards since i got so many PM’s

1ST major thing is the tool charge ($450.00)

so what im going to ask is everyone who wants in to pay $10-15 to help with the tool cost and $2.25 -/+ per board plus s/h usa is $3 outside is $5+

2ND option is just to wait it out till they get made ?????
