    I don't know why I typed Aleph 3 instead of 1. Call it a senior moment. I've been intimate with an A1 head for several days, stripping off a flaky chrome-plate job and polishing the Al.

    Wow! It looks like Morelite did quite a few Ti Alephs. I missed lots of good stuff. He hasn't posted for a few months.

    That'll be a nasty head with 3xK2Ts in it.

    Yes, he did make quite a few Ti lights. I have a Morelite A1, A2 and A3 heads.

    I too have wondered about Dwayne (Morelite) - it's been a long while since he's been an active CPF'r. I hope he's well!

    David, nice Aleph 3!! (or Aleph 1, as Donn would call it he he)

    Very nice David. My setup is virtually identical. I have a TB crenulated
    bezel-retaining ring instead of the smooth ring.
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine

    Thanks. As it happens, I am actually running it with a TB Ti crenelated bezel (purchased from W_P) too at the moment. The Morelite smooth bezel is "in storage"!!! . I just want the K2 TFFC's to re-appear

    Thanks, Dad, and others! I've been working on it. Here are a couple of new arrivals which haven't made it into the case yet: On the left is an adorable little TB CR2 host with 3 white trits in the tail. It's waiting for a McR18 and lens from the Shoppe, and will get a LE with a SSC P4 running at 400mA. On the right is the Ti prototype for PhotonFanatic's Blocky Boy lights. It's got a Seoul P4 at 750mA.

    Well, this is my titanium "collection" - I already put this up on the McG subforum, but I really like the picture so...



    I've caught the Ti Bug - but my wallet sure won't take it more than once or twice a year!
