That looks BlueTiFull!
if without discs, I also like these options:
The post can be useful, with the addition of a small jump ring, to consolidate key items:
the small ring folds away to allow tailstanding
Thank you jon_slider.
I do not agree with the use of tritium vials outside specially designed grooves, as I consider it unsafe. They are too fragile and the tritium is harmful if inhaled. Granted, in this case the recess at the back of the TC-R1 is probably protective enough, but still not as much as with the disks.
The vote is in and blue won by far. So, here you go...
Pretty sweet Pol77.
If I would have been on earlier, I would have voted blue also.
I fancy some fancy screws for the clip. Does anyone know the size Jetbeam uses so I can find option online?
Also, Anyone using a different / better clip?
Wow super nice trit tails
My low budget solution.
maybe copy McGizmo:
I kind of doubt that Jetbeam used at US standard size screw.
Not saying it’s impossible, just not very likely.
I might see if I can ID the screw size.
Any luck with IDing the jetbeam screw size?
Also, does anyone know the size of the metal ball in the TC-R1? I guess it should be the same with the RRT-01, all models.
I believe the screw size is m2.5 (metric 2.5mm).
I had forgot all about it, to be honest.
It appears the best I can tell to be a 2.5mm x 0.45mm thread.
The detent ball is 2mm. I went with the Silicone Nitride Ceramic which is supposed to be harder than stainless.
This is where I purchased the balls I use…
2mm Si3N4 Silicon Nitride Ceramic Ball Bearings G5 – BC Precision?
I paid about $15 for 50 balls, plenty of spares.
I have a TC-R1 I cannot get smooth, while my 1st TC-R1 is buttery smooth. The second one came from strange origins. It was missing o rings and has the bezel of a Niteye EYE 10 instead of its own. So I fear it may have a wrong or damaged ball.
I found a source for these Silicone Nitride balls in the UK (your source moderator007 wants $23.50 for shipping to the UK). I will let you know if the ball fixes the dial.
Did you notice smoother action with these compared to the stock ball?
Not really over a good ball. But I have seen one that was slightly flat spotted and caused roughness at sporatic times, it helped that one for sure.
What lube are you using?
I think I may have a bad ball
I am using Krytox and a sprinkle of PTFE powder. It has made my 1st TC-R1 a joy to use, but not this second one.
That should work great, the more PTFE you add by volume the more the damping effect.
Too much though and it becomes pasty.
Yes, I have seen that, The problem is this light does not want to work well. I have opened, cleaned and lubbed it 3 times and it works semi-OK for 30 seconds and then it becomes thick and uneven. I bet the ball does not even turn.
