Would you have the ability to put initials or special markings on this host?

This would make a very unique and special gift.

Will it be raw machined aluminum or are you going to offer some sort of coating / finish?

Well i am very interested, but due to the fact i live in The netherlands, wil international shipping be possible for a reasonable fee, cause many usa based companys ask shipping fees double the price of the object.

And of course, a protoype or drawing would be nice to help decide Smile

I was thinking something similar – if this is CNC’ed maybe have “BLF” letters engraved?

BTW, I’d be interested in one (or more), but I am curious about shipping cost to U.S.?

This thread is open to discussion, suggestions etc.
Personally, I’d LOVE to see a P60-based Anglehead!

Something with a clip on the back, or a flat place to add one (also useful for ceiling bounce), and maybe with a way to choose either an 18650 or 14500 or CR123 battery tube (single cells, but you could make the tubes so we could string them together so we could use, e.g. 3xAA…)…

Thanks! I’m back to watching your very interesting project develop…

EDIT: No finish needed, as I’d be glad to apply HAIII myself!
EDIT2: No need to add accessories either, as I have plenty of switches, drop-ins, etc. Just a nice body is all I’d need!

Any more that you can add as far as the nuts and bolts go?
What is the voltage range? What is the LED being used?
Designed for a specific use? Or host?
Specific batteries?

Come on, we want to know. Smile

Pretty sure what Sinner is describing is a host only - no LED, no driver, but everything else including a copper P60 pill. That sounds perfect to me. If anyone wants a complete built-up light to their specs, you need to go through a modder preferably in your own country I guess to save on shipping. I'd be willing to take a couple on and try to keep costs down. I'm assuming it's a 18650 cell size host, but we'll find out more. If you do want soemone esle to build it up, best to have it directly shipped to the modder from Sinner, again, to save some on shipping.

Shipping will be only a few bucks , ships from US. International however will be $10 or so.

Thanks everyone for participating i will do a final count shortly to see how many have been spoken for, I am overwhelmed with the amount of trust people have put into this simple idea of mine , sight unseen , hats off to the gentlemen for your support I have no doubts that these are the driving force of the hobby. I will make sure to justify and make one awesome custom host that is the very definition of the budget light forums concept.

Interested in one, if the design includes MRsDNF's idea of threading the pill into the reflector as well as into the body. And if the host can be obtained together with extra pills (for me brass would do the job fine btw, easier to mill Smile ), it will be a great system: using custom pill drop-ins for high performance mods, and the standard ones fit too Smile

I'm not sure threading is needed. obviously improving thermal transfer can be done in a few different ways. Whatever you come up with I'm sure will probably take into account to some degree. I'd be interested in extra pills btw... You may want to consider selling extra pills, even if they will not fit standard P60 bodies.

Sinner,

After reading the thread my only further suggestion is to make the host w/ plenty of aluminum and finning for heat sinking “hot” drop-ins. Perhaps a host weight of 150 – 175 grams.

Eehhm, well, I will not ask for copper (hard to machine), but say you would make this to be designed ultimate p60 host also in brass (heavyCool), would it still be a budget light? Innocent

The two lights on the left are Sinner’s, the small one on the right is my Texas Poker.

Should be obvious that Sinner is doing a fantastic job…
