Modded Fulton Industries Anglehead

I found a website that had one Desert Tan Anglehead left and purchased it for this mod. My previous seoul modified anglehead now belongs to my Pastor to travel around the world on mission trips.

This anglehead I decided to add a little more ooomph, and went with a Madmax wide open plus. The LED is the XP-G r5 mounted on a 20mm board and attatched to a piece of aluminum I found at work. I drilled out the bottom and potted the MM+ in the heatsink.

You will have to excuse the cotton on the bottom of the potted MM+. I put a small amount of a cotton ball in the anglehead to check out the beam before I attatched the reflector to the LED and some stuck to the bottom:ohgeez:, the reason for this is the crappy Loctite clear epoxy, I don’t know if I got a bad batch but it was suppose to setup in 60 mintues and even after a few days it was still tacky. I will go back to the superior Devcon clear 30 minute epoxy.

The reflector is the most excellent reflector for the XP-G. It is 41 × 31 and only requires a slight trim to the inside lip of the anlehead to fit flush in the light. I epoxied the reflector to the heatsink so that it would transfer heat to the reflector and not move around at all.

IMO, this is the ultimate reflector/LED combo for the Fulton anglehead. Now on to the pictures.

Heatsink and LED

Reflector

Notice how close the reflector mates to the emitter board for more heat dissipation to the reflector.

Epoxied the reflector to the HS with the good stuff! 5 Minute Devcon clear.:party:

This shows how the reflector sits after a little trim to the mouth of the anglehead.

Next are some reflector and body photos. Excuse the ugly plastic lens, I have some glass on the way. Smile










I hope this will help guide some in modding this great light. Enjoy!

Thanks!

They are great, with the switch being its flickering flaw. I have yet to fix it until I can figure out how without changing the stock look.

I have modded quite a few and they all have the same problem.

I once bought the knockoff below and wish that Fulton made them in this color.
