Any cheap 3-up base without LEDs for the Cree XP?

Hi folks, I’m planning on doing some LED conversions around the house.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of searching for some relatively inexpensive 3-up MCPCBs for the Cree XP with little luck.
I’d like something that will fit Carclo triple lenses as there is a good variety (flood, medium, spot) and good price.

But, since my size isn’t restricted to 20mm, I am open to other options.

For example, I found this one from lck-led which is perfect price-wise, but there is only one lens option (25 degree) http://www.lck-led.com/cree-series-connection-circuit-board-p-1097.html?...

Ledsupply is willing to sell the triple bases without LEDs for $2 ea, which seems kinda high considering copper ones can be had elsewhere for ~0.50 more. I’m trying to avoid the extra cost of copper ones since I won’t be driving them at a very high current.

Thanks.

I know SinkPad has a minimum order of 30 pieces of their triple boards, in Aluminum they are only around $1.50 ea…. About $50 for 30 with shipping… Do not know how many you need, but I am sure you can sell the extras here if you wanted…

I need about 10 for now. I’ll send them an email, though I have a feeling shipping cost to Canada will probably negate any savings vs. if I were to buy both lenses and bases from Ledsupply.

I’m in Canada. I have seen those, a good deal but the copper bases are overkill for my needs.
