First, if this is in the wrong place, please move it. Thanks.
I had an old E2E that never got used. Just sat there on the shelf as the standard bulb just hasn't done it for me for quite a long time.
I wanted a light for clearing rooms i.e. I wanted a light to use when going into felons homes and making sure no one else was there when we (my team) conducted a search. The light I wanted needed considerable flood as I did not want to be sweeping the light. If there is a threat present, I need to see it immediately with my peripheral vision. The light did not need to have an extended runtime, as clearing a house is generally done quite quickly. Moving fast, and with a sidearm out, larger lights just were not an option I wanted to entertain.
I told Scott what I needed and shipped him my E2E. In a very short amount of time, he produced the perfect light for me… the Milky Room Sweeper.
It runs on a single 17670 battery and is a direct drive P7. He modified the reflector, so there is large spot, and lots and lots of glorious spill. He made a few other modifications in order to make it more reliable if jostled or dropped.
Here it is next to Longman and Shorty for comparison
Just look at that emitter! Estimated 650 lumens out the front!
Here is a beamshot in my office. You can see the spot, but it lights up every corner of the room with the spill. I will try to get some outside beamshots in the next few days. It is absolutely incredible. I had a SF M6, and I think this is putting out more light for longer, and isn't burning up 6 CR123 batteries to do it, and it is so much smaller.
The work Scott did was incredible, and he is an extremely nice guy to talk with and knows his subject matter.
I can definitely see more projects going to Milkyspit. He makes tools we can use.
