    Default Milkyspit Mods, Thoughts, Eye Candy [LOTS OF PHOTOS] Part 2

    This is Part 2 of the Milkyspit Mods, Thoughts, Eye Candy thread. Part 1 is over here.

    Some Introductory Photos!

    Here is a small collection of some of the more interesting things I've built, along with annotations... I'll keep the descriptions very terse for now but welcome inquiries. BTW, if you want ANYTHING built, give me a shout! As good friend Knight Lights is fond of saying, anything is possible... the impossible just takes longer!

    On to the show! Hee hee.

    Project-M Runtimes

    -=-=-=-=-=-

    Unforgiven, thanks for the continuation! Hope I didn't cause you any grief in posting the new thread.

    If I can help a bit by posting the continuation thread myself next time one of mine is in such a position, please let me know, I'd be glad to handle that if it might make your work a bit easier. You guys do a lot to keep CPF a nice place for all to visit!

    Thanks again, much appreciated.

    -=-=-=-=-=-

    How To Contact Milkyspit!

    In general, a PM on CPF is a good way to reach me, though there are occasions when this won't work... perhaps PM Inbox is full, perhaps CPF is having a hiccup...

    If you can't get a PM sent on CPF, you might want to send one to me on CPF Marketplace. I monitor both.

    Or you could send me an email... I suggest you put the word 'CPF' somewhere in the subject line to make it easier for me to separate your email from all the spam...



    Regarding phone calls: I don't provide my phone number publicly but if you're unable to reach me by the above means, you might want to get my phone number from a fellow CPFer, there are several who know how to reach me. Or have them call me, give them a way I can get back to you (phone number and/or email address), and I'll get in touch as soon as I can. Sometimes a call is the best approach, though in many cases I would encourage you to try PM and/or email first.

    If all else fails, post in this thread that you're trying to reach me. No need for details posted here, but at least I'll know I need to reach out to you!

    Note: I do use Skype, which is potentially a useful way of doing a text chat... and I can call from Skype on my computer to a phone number pretty much anywhere in the world, so providing me with YOUR phone number would enable me to call YOU. Again, the above means of contact are probably preferable, but if it comes to it, this might be yet another way!

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Seth, got your PM and yes, it's been buried, though not too deeply. I'm in PM-clearing mode right now and will be in touch shortly. No problems so far, build is doing nicely though not quite finished.

    Joe, will do! I need to fit a heatsink to the 'crazy monster' build, then that one should be smooth sailing the rest of the way. As for the 876 build, kinda the opposite situation... I've got the heatsink ready to go but need to open the head so it can all get installed properly.

    Scott,

    I'm sure you probably have a few mods already lying around without any
    owners. I say have a MILKY SALE on BST.
    It would be hard for many here at CPF to pass up on a mod thats already complete and ready to ship

    Just a thought .

    Great Idea! I've even seen other custom builders (i.e. McGizmo, Mr. Bulk) do similar things in the past.

    I know I'd be very interested in some of those offerings I've seen lying around the labs!!

    Okay Ray, I'm dipping my toe in the water. Just posted an HD45 that I kicked up a notch or so with an XWOS emitter plus some other small touches. You'll find the thread over here.

    Thanks for the idea!

    Some Inaugural Eye Candy

    To kickoff this Eye Candy Part II thread, here area few tidbits...

    Had a small flurry of HDS upgrades come through the Labs recently, couldn't resist snapping a quick photo... after all, it isn't everyday that one has this many HDS lights in front of them!



    A Longbow Micra with PR-style head and a custom light module with Seoul SSCP4 USWOH emitter... this one definitely follows the KISS principle as it's single brightness and twist on/off, but ergonomics are great and the thing is pocketable(!)... a real pocket rocket! One of my alltime favorites.



    A look into the head of an HD45 that I upgraded with Lux5 XWOS emitter... it's neat how the camera was able to pickup a good portion of the emitter die's reflection on the orange peel...

    Hey Scott,

    I received my two lights today! ML-1 and ML-1x

    Excellent quality and I've had a little play with them tonight - They are awesome! Will do a review of them when I get the time.

    I've emailed you as I've got two more L-1s needing to be 'transformed'!

    Hope to hear from you soon about that,

    Hi Scott,

    Sorry to bother you again, but any news about my ML-1 "update"

    Would it be possible to mod an ARC LS with SSCP4 USWOH running on 2x AA Lithium batteries and if so what kind of Lumen and runtime are we talking about? Price?

    Thanks again for your time!

    ps: still not sure what to do with my KL2

    Jurphaas Eye Candy

    Built this version of the M375 Floodmax for FF member Jurphaas a bit ago, but not sure if I posted any eye candy yet. It was an interesting build plus perhaps the last use of the McR11 reflectors I had left... they seem to have become Unobtanium since then... enjoy!



    Some feedback...

    David, as always I'm digging out of PM and will get back to you ASAP. Went to pickup my son from soccer yesterday, spent some quality time, then taught Sunday School today... and the reward when I returned home was my PM Inbox hitting its 100 message limit!

    (posted as a graphic to discourage spammers from harvesting it)

    KL6 with SEOULmation upgrade has really nice results and I'd love to help... looking forward to your email and/or reaching you via PM. Thanks!

    Per Arne, I haven't done your ML-1 upgrade yet but am ready to do so... do you want me to send it back immediately or wait for the KL2 upgrade to be done as well?

    For KL2, some (but not all) possibilities: single-brightness M273 M375 X464... single-brightness color-enhanced 'Pinky' build... multi-brightness X325.4 using Acorn1.3 driver... 4-emitter builds in single or multi brightness...

    Also, I may have some TranquillityBase Ti bezel rings available with any of these KL2 builds, with the bezel ring costing about $85. You don't need it, of course, but it is a nice touch by one of the Ti masters.

    Freyth, we haven't even settled on a build! But in our back-and-forth we were discussing a couple different lights at once, and you had a number of questions. There's nothing wrong with that! You're certainly entitled to ask the questions, and I would very much like to answer them plus move your builds forward. I got a little overwhelmed with the number of things to answer, info I wanted to provide... and eventually dropped the ball altogether. That's my mistake! But I haven't forgotten and will get you the info you need, as soon as I can. Sorry for my own failing.

    Joe
    Jaybiz, M876 is closer to completion than the mega build, mainly because the components I'll need to use are known, and I've been down this particular road (buildwise) before. I doubt I'll have your light finished this week... more likely is next week. As for the mega light, that one will probably not happen until the M876 is finished... I'd like to get one of the lights into your hands to enjoy while I'm finishing the other.

    Per Arne, sounds good... M375 fine, protection fine. Will email and/or PM you pricing.


    Pinky Comes to KL2!

    As some folks may be aware, I've done a handful of 'Pinky' builds, designed for enhanced color rendition, over the past year or so... but all these existed either in Mag builds or within SureFire KT4 turbohead mods. Finally it dawned on me that I could build a scaled-down version of the 'Pink Panther' I'd made for SilverFox (he posted a review thread for that one elsewhere on CPF) within the humble KL2 head! Without further ado...

    I fully understand. Why don't we settle on the ML1 builds first? The KL2 builds can be hold on for a while until we're done with the ML1. I'm sure that'll be better for us.
