Tease

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

I haven't left yet. Do you want me to explain that I did not leave enough room for a momentary switch so machined everything deeper only to find the head fall into two as I had machined through to a cooling fin groove. Cry Or do I explain to you that I did not send you a driver adaptor to suit the hole for the driver. I just noticed looking through the pictures. Cry

OL sent me a TIR for an MTG-2 with the instructions to build a light. I decided not to use a pill in this light so machined the head, switch and driver space from one piece. Well it was one piece until I did the above to it. The proceedings halted there for a few months until I thought of a way to get around it which OL may or may not take a picture.

This may end up with some sort of driver running from a momentary switch with the switch in the tailcap used to lock the batteries out to stop then going flat. Batteries will either be 26650s or 18650s in series.

The rest is up to our friend here to finish.

If I may ask if anyone in the States can do me a favour if they have one of these can they please post it to OL otherwise I'll send one from here next week.

I have ordered both these and the ones I have received are identical.

Good luck OL. Tongue Out

It's ok, I don't need any of them. I have some. Thank you for the offer, much appreciated.

 

I had actually forgotten about this light, along with what I am doing on the ZY-T08 build and the contest build? Is that stuff still happening??Undecided

  Seriously, I did forget about this light, so when it came the other day, I had to soak it in water for a day, before opening it. I had a neighbor's dog check it for explosives, but the derned dawg just lifted it's leg over the package.SurprisedYellTongue Out

 

Anyhow, I will be assembling the very nice light Steve sent me and then?......   Who knows, I can't remember.

There’s a phone number for that in the avatar … no telling what kind of army will show up, these days.

Wow, just beautiful.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Well, the light is done and as I said, all I did was to assemble it. Steve had everything ready to go, so I didn't have to do anything except put the parts in. I did not make it a super bright light, just a normal Qlite 3.04 amp driver, 3 modes H/M/L with the zener mod for the MT-G2.

Here's a couple photos

As you can see it's a total flooder and would be a great walking light. With 2x26650 Sony VT batteries, it actually hits 3030mA at the tail cap. It's a very unique light, as we have become accustomed to, when Steve makes one.

Thanks Steve for all the work you put in, let alone all the money. I know what all this stuff costs, along with shipping...

 

That's it folks

wow. that is a nice flooder.

If you can’t blind them with your brilliance, baffle them with your bullcrap.

Thanks for doing this with me OL. lt is honestly a privilege to be able to do this with someone as esteemed as yourself. I suppose all that is left is to do something with it. Maybe a giveaway?
