What a great color on that X1 Thumbs Up , I have one with the same setup but it’s still black maybe it’s time to turn on the oven.

Thanks for sharing.

totally missed this thread .. I just baked up a couple of pieces of an old home depot light .. just the tube and the heatsink .it came out very nice . Here’s a pic of the same 5$ light that dchomak did for his wife .(beautiful pic.) I was bored the other day and did mine right on the burner . it came out pretty nice . the trick is to pull it as soon as you start seeing color .overbaking just makes things lighter and cheaper thinner materials get ugly brassy when baked too long . Better ano and heavier pieces usually come out darker and richer colored ..best results are obtained by undercooking because like pasta they are going to keep cooking even when pulled off the stove ..think al dente . Silly If you make an ugly light you can always strip it and polish it . tail and head on mine are still black but I ground down the attack bezel and polished the 3/8th” edge I left so it looks like a SS bezel.
.. baked up in about 2 minutes on an electric burner on high ..

*i’ll get some pics up later

My first S series Olight.
Was the black Cu SMINI
This one kinda sucked. Silver plating under the black had to be removed before Copper exposed.

CRX inspired…
