Does it really matter which ones?

However you're posting images on BLF isn't working.

If you want people to see your images, use a real image hosting site, not Google with it's way-too-long URLs.

It's the last five in post #26.

Finally after few days of rain I was able to continue working on the body.
I had to saw the inside of the aluminum plates after drilling the holes so I mounted a Jigsaw to a wooden plate and took it to mt "worksop" 


I decided to leave some space on the middle plate to mount the driver and slave board to it  so I had to saw each plate individually

Apparently my "Table Saw" was not a great Idea and I was unable to saw precisely

And after some filing it looks a bit better cool

Very interesting so far YuvalS! Keep up the good work.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

So it has been a while since I posted (or worked on the light) but today I did a huge progress:

drilled, tapped and glued the screws for the helmet mount: 

And also drilled and tapped the cable gland and momentary switch:

 

For last, I cut and file the front window lense:

Unfortunately I am still waiting for the driver, slave board and waterproof cable connector to arrive by mail. 
I guess it is delayed because all of the 11.11, cyber monday etc. selles but hope I will get it soon.

I have tried reloading and 2 different devices, but the images in post #50 do not come up for me. makes no difference if I try to right click them and open in new tab/window. The images do show in previous posts though.

I hoped that by now, I will figure out how to embed images from google but it makes me hard time every post Sad I changed images of #50 to imgur, hope it solves the issue

Just came back from a caving trip in Romania and find the heat sing waiting in the mailbox so I had to cut and fix it to the light.


Copied the light dimensions:


Roughly saw it by hand:


Removed unneeded ribs to create place for nuts: 


Attached to light and file the edges:


Body is now completed and I still did not get the electronics from Fasttech (shipped on Dec 2nd) maybe I start working on the rear battery case

The heat sink looks really cool. Facepalm
Any pictures of the caving trip?
