Copper triple p60 shells (run 2)

Hello everyone,



 

I’m offering copper triple p60 shells. 

I have asked Mattaus if it was ok that I made these, he gave me the ok, they differ slightly from his. I had originally planned for a solarforce only type of shell, Matts design was universally best so I went with that. 


  • These are the same dimensions as Matts’ shells. 
  • These are for triples ie. 20mm carclo optics and 20mm noctigon, or similar thickness MCPCB
  • 17mm driver hole with recess for potting components. 
  • These do not have a ground threaded hole and screw. 
  • These  have a small divot to allow you to solder a wire for a ground. 
  • No large outer spring included. 
  • Cnc machined in a professional shop. 
  • These are being made for me. I’m offering here because I know some people missed out on Matts. 
  • These are for the shells only. Complete made to order triple dropins will be available in a few weeks on my thread. 

40 are available. 


There’s a possibility I’ll have more made. If this happens it’ll be a bit cheaper through the company I’m using and silver plating may be a possibility. Or reduced prices. 

It’s expensive here, to silver plate, because of the flat rate


Price will be 40USD for one, and 30USD for any additional. Extra for tracking number. Paypal only please. Pm for paypal info.   

All packages sent via small packet air through Canada Post. 6-10 day delivery. 

22 left

Immediate paypal will be shipped the next day.


This will be added to another forum soon. 

Thanks for looking, feel free to ask questions or comment.

Bump.

Still have 35 of these extra. I’ll be adding these triples to my sales thread after I finish a few other projects.

These are meant only for triple dropins. Everything fits perfect. Optics and MCPCB are almost press fit.

There’s probably a way to use these for mules or shallow tir optics. I haven’t investigated any of that yet though.

I’ve been looking at these for a while now, and been thinking if I should add one of these to the ‘collection’. I have Solarforce L2, N, T, and P and was wondering how well these would work in those lights. I know very little about these copper drop ins and their performance. How much better are they? Is it just esthetics?

These dropin shells will fit all of those hosts and many many more. They are pretty universal.

If you plan on running a dropin at full power, 6-9 or more amps These are amazing. At conservative power levels there’s not much out there that will beat solid copper.

There is very little thermal sag and the led stays cooler longer.

You will still have to add a small piece of foil to the biggest part of the dropin for a snug fit.

I ran a nichia 219b triple in my hand at 4.5 amps for over 5 minutes and the shell was getting warm but not by any means hot.

In my opinion these are the cats ass for triples. At least high powered triples. They also fit everything needed perfectly.

(edit) I was wondering the same things when I first ordered the others from mattaus. Once they arrived I knew I needed to have more.

Hi everyone, I’ve been crazy busy with work, sickness and a very late spring (still isn’t here)

I’ve had these almost two weeks and if there’s still interested people I have 40 available.

If you’d like completed triples I’ll be updating my p60 build thread in the coming weeks. I’ve got a couple of projects I’m working on right now so the dropin factory will remain closed for a bit longer.

could you make a completed ready to use triple nichia 219a drop in or does it have to be a B?,

It’s for a solarforce L2D side switch flashlight where I believe the tail can take 3A right?.
Is that ok?.

I’m in london.
Thanks.

Malkoff !

I could do either, there’s also a few more questions I’d need answers to. Modes, optic type, current/mode power etc.

Would it be possible that I send you message in two-three weeks? I’m really quite busy at the moment with work and a couple of other builds.

Hi Bushwhacked

I’ll like to order 4 of your copper P60 shells. Is the price still the same as the previous batch at $40 for the first one and $30 each after the first?

Thanks

With all the talk about Noctigon Meteor M43 I suddenly have a craving for a Triple light. I just might go for a P60 Triple. Smile

not tapped, and the driver drops in and would need to be soldered or placed with adhesive.

You can PM him here and he should get an email notification about having a new private message on blf. However, I did that about a month ago and never heard from him. Good luck.

I have one we could use as a template, and actually have the original drawing files from Mattaus and his blessing to make more. Problem is I don’t know who might make them. Hoop once said he would make some, but I don’t think he’s around anymore. Anyone know who could make these?

edit: I msg’d Hoop, we’ll see what he says.

Looks like Hoop could make some for us, but I’m not sure if there is enough interest to bother. I remember Nitro tried to get the ball rolling but there didn’t seem to be enough interest then either. Maybe this is better left dead.

I’d also be in for 2 or 3.

I remember a time, when I searched for lights to fit my needs. Now I search for needs to fit my lights.
