I'm thinking about building an Aleph from scratch...well, a Cree Aleph to be exact.
While I'm pretty skilled with a soldering iron, and quite mechanically inclined, I've never built one of these high end lights before.
If I could get my hands on a Cree, are there enough parts available at the Shoppe for me to build everything myself? Say if I asked someone to prescribe to me the parts list for a successful build, and then just order and build it? Or is it too early in the game for me to be able to "One stop shop" this?
I'd really like to do this, but I'm not in the mood for spending $150+ in parts to build a LuxIII only to sell the light (probably at a loss) just to do it again with the emitter I really wanted.
If it helps any, Iím looking to basically build a 1.5X123 or 2X123 Aleph 19 with the Cree, and have two stage clickie. Beyond that, Iím such a newb I donít know where to go from here. J
Any help or suggestions?
