    Edit Dec 3rd - 2008

    From now on, another service/option available ($10) will be to modify the stock "D" switch to allow to work with flat cells, as shown here:





    I can also do the other side (included in the $10) if you are using it for an LED mod and don't need the bulb pedestal:





    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___

    One these new Camo bodies, and on all future custom 1xD's that I will offer, I will now offer the optional internal boring to fit a 4xAA battery holder, such as this one:




    This is how the body looks after being bored out to allow this battery pack to fit:





    This is how the inside of the body looks after the boring operation:





    Again, this will be optional. Charge for this will be a flat $20 on top of the price of the body.

    __________________________________________________ ____________________________
    EDIT: Nov 27 - the list for the 4th wave is now CLOSED!

    That makes for 10 confirmed bodies, so the list is officially closed

    Colors available:
    - Black
    - Red
    - Dark Greeen
    - Silver
    - Dark Silver
    - Copper
    - Purple
    - Jade Green
    - Camo ($5 extra)

    Prices (shipping included):
    All colors (but CAMO): Domestic = $50, International = $65
    CAMO: Domestic = $55, International = $70

    Optional internal boring to allow 4xAA holder to fit is an additional $20 per body.

    Payment via Paypal only. Cash or credit same price. Paypal information will be sent via PM once body is complete and ready for shipment.

    Please post questions on this thread as perhaps others have the same questions.

    Here are some battery/holders for comparison size-wise. From top: "C" cell, FM 4xAA holder, WQ's custom 18650 LiIon holder, FM's 4x14670 holder:



    Here is a size comparison of the 3 battery holders (top: WQ's 18650 holder, WQ's AW "C" holder, FM's 4xAA holder)



    I can also make custom battery sleeves for the AW 18650 cell and the AW "C" LiIon cells for an additional charge of $35 each - same ones as shown above. You can look in this thread to see the work required to make each sleeve:
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...11&postcount=4


    EDIT: For those interested, the step by step procedure shown in post #39.

    I recently worked on a project for a fellow CPF member in which he wanted several custom 1D's made. Besides his 4 units (2x Copper and 2x Green), I made two extra Silver 1D's as well:


    Here is how they look like size-wise. Note the new 1D's I made are a little bit longer than the HAIII 1D so that you can fit the newer D-size LiIon cells (body length is approx. 158mm):


    Here a few pics of the work in progress:

    Mine was waiting for me as well when I got home. Amazing speed!

    Many thanks for this Will. Nice machine work, by the way It's my first 1D Mag and the form factor is really nice - sits nicely in the hand.

    As soon as my Li-Ion 1D arrives to power it then my Malkoff drop in will finally have a permanent home.

    Great work and thanks again.

    Thank you guys

    By the way, if more folks overseas want more of these, please do let me know. I underestimated shipping a little, so future international orders would be $65 instead of $60. If you are interested, please do let me know. Domestic (USA only) orders would be still $50 each.

    I can get the Mags for this 1D conversion in:
    - Red
    - Black
    - Blue
    - Purple
    - Dark Green (like the ones here for sale)
    - Copper (like the ones here for sale)
    - Dark Silver/Grey (darker than the Silver in this post)
    - Silver (like the ones here for sale)

    I would have to order parts and wait for delivery (2-weeks) and then allow for 1-2 weeks for the actual work to be done before they are ready for shipping. Takes a little while, but I don't have a CNC machine/shop available, so this is all done by hand in my bench lathe.

    Will

    Hi Will, I'd like a blue one and a copper one. No problem on the few weeks waiting. Shipping to Toronto, Canada. Still $65 each? Please let me know PP info if that's okay.

    Thanks.

    Well, I'll be in for a few more in the not too distant future

    By the way Will, you might want to amend the thread title to attract the punters if you're making more available?

    I am pretty sure they do because the spring would take the difference in length, but I no longer have any with me right now to quickly try it.

    Can one of you that got theirs do a quick check with a regular D-cell to see?

    OK, I am updating thread #1 with the new pending orders. I will wait a little bit more to see who else wants "in" this second wave of custom 1D's. Once I close the list, I will place an order for all of the Mag's at once.

    Thanks much for the interest
