Scott do you still have KL3 1st Gen heads avaliable ???
Scott do you still have KL3 1st Gen heads avaliable ???
hey Scott, any updates for me?...
Thanks for the info Scott.
At my work we used to have a sign that said...
"The satisfaction of meeting a delivery date is overshadowed by a poor quality product"
I had to paraphrase, I don't remember the exact wording. I would much rather wait a little longer for the quality you ship out.
For any potential customers who haven't read the Milky mods thread where Scott tells the story about working for the lady down the street when he was a kid, please read it. It will give you a good idea of his mindset when it comes to builds.
Thanks again for doing these awsome mods for all of us here
Received my creemator R2WC in the mail today.
I'm very impressed with the build quality and the output.
Thanks a lot for your great mods.
g'day Scott, just to confirm i would love the Optimator on 2 Cell Dual Stage Body, if u could supply the entire flashy from scratch would probably be the best way to go, just let me know costs and i will paypal u what u need. cheers, steve
in an epiphany last night i figured out what id like to do for my next project with you. will be somewhat unique i think! email coming today or this weekend, be on the lookout! (update: email sent!)
hint: Milky Candle "XXX"

C'mon, Scott, please reply to my email!
Is it possible to buy one of these Acorn drivers by itself? How much?
Cryhavok, unfortunately I'm not geared to sell and support the drivers by themselves, nor do I have enough on hand to do that... at present I only have enough for my own needs. It's something I've been considering, though, and I won't rule out selling them at some point down the road.
Perhaps I've missed this somewhere in this thread, but is there a "best" way to get in touch with milky? I sent a PM, but I imagine he gets quite a few of those.
In addition, you can always send PM to me on MP, and/or email to...
Comparing The Brightness Of Two Lights
Someone in a third-party sales thread posted a question on brightness that got me thinking about how one can go about getting a sense of the relative brightness between two lights. Here are some thoughts, some of which are excerpted from my post in the other thread, with additional thoughts gathered here...
First, when comparing two LED flashlights, the difference in tint between the two beams could make one light look brighter than it really is and/or make the other look less bright than it really is.
Also, if one beam is more focused than the other it would tend to look "brighter." For that reason, the best comparison of overall output between two lights (assuming you don't have an in-house integrating sphere and appropriate training in its proper use, that is) is to perform an A-B ceiling bounce test... go into a dark room, hold both lights over your head, both pointed at the same spot on your ceiling... do NOT look directly at the beams, but rather focus your eyes on a piece of furniture, one of the walls, something on the floor... anything that will prevent you from seeing the beams directly. Now alternate turning on flashlight A, then flashlight B, then A, then B, ...back and forth as many times as needed to get a good sense of the relative brightness of each. Remember that LED tint can affect the way the human eye perceives brightness, so try to take that out of the equation as much as you can via conscious thought. With a little practice the ceiling bounce test does surprisingly well at giving a good brightness comparison between lights.
Ambient lighting that's a particular tint could make one light look more or less bright than it really is, too, as similar-tinted ambient lighting would tend to "gobble up" some of the light's output, basically disguise it, whereas a greater contrast between ambient and flashlight tint would tend to make that one stand out, appearing brighter.
It's also possible (though I'm not sure how likely) that a person's eyes could make a particular tint look even dimmer than normal due to some sort of color blindness or other tint-specific deficiency in the eyes themselves. It's not the first thing I'd assume, but I suppose it could be a factor for some of us.
It's important in all this to think about the human eye's response to brightness... for example, a light that measures at twice the lumens of overall output will look only a little brighter to the eye. Mathematically, it takes MORE THAN FIVE TIMES THE LUMENS (556%) to make a light source look twice as bright to the human eye. That's one of the underpinnings of the Project-M lights, which embrace a more balanced design approach.
I'm ready to buy a Creemator. However, should I wait for your next sprint run or just order it now?
Blacksheepvictor, the simplest thing is just placing your order right now. That does two good things... first, your order will be underway regardless of when I may or may not post the next sprint run, and whether you catch that run or not... lower stress IMHO... and second, you'll be sure to get exactly what you want instead of settling for whatever happens to be available in the sprint run itself.
Then again, it's late as I write this and maybe I'm already half-asleep, and not thinking straight!
Sounds good to me. I sent you a PM about a week ago regarding the same thing. I'll send it again.
Chris Andrews' M458.4-M3 Hybrid
Fellow CPFer Chris Andrews commissioned a light reminiscent of the C2 desTROYer... he hasn't seen his light yet up close and personal, so wanted to post a couple profile shots to whet his appetite. The light consists of parts from Leef, RPM, and of course, SureFire. IMHO it's a nice looking piece. Enjoy, folks!
I've had these little guys for awhile now. One is an E1L Cree TIR Optic MM+. The other is A KL1 SSCP4 USWOH with OpticMM+. Both run on AW's. In terms of lumens,HELLA BRIGHT! The KL1 rides with an Aleph 123 tube and McTC. It's my favorite special light and both are worth every cent.
my typin is bad and my speeling is evenworse...

I think it's time for a few new pics:
