    Of course, not a problem, except that the Digital Camos come as a 3D. If you need a 2D, I can cut/re-thread the 3D into a 2D. Let me know so that I can add it to the list to purchase tonight

    Does the standard camo come in 2D? If so I'll take a standard camo. If I have to choose a solid color to get a 2D then please add a red (as bright red as they have) 2D in for me.

    Another question, how much length does moving the spring down into the tailcap shave off?

    Unfortunately, the regular Camo also comes only in a 3D.

    I will order you a 2D Red one

    Unfortunately, now that I went to place the order, I found that the "C" size is currently only available in Black. If you want a "C", it has to be black. If you want a "D", I can still get all colors. Please do let me know what you want.

    If you are willing to wait longer, I might be able to find that one locally, but it might take a while.

    By the way, this mini-wave is now complete. No more orders accepted.

    Post #1 has the list of participants for this 6th wave.

    I have been looking for color C M@g bodies and not seen them. Did they make them or not?

    Alan,

    I have used them in Black, Pewter, and Purple, but the supply is not consistent.

    I will check the local stores to see if I can find a Purple one for tx101 - are you interested in one as well?

    There is also another forum member that might be able to get them locally as well

    Just to make sure, will the length required for FM's 3xAA battery holder still work for a KD li-ion?

    Since I can buy the 2xD silver locally, you got lucky and you are the last person to join the 6th wave. Are you domestic USA or International?

    It is about 0.5 inches deeper.

    The FM 3x and 4x adapters are about 3" long, and these new KD cells are 3.74" long. Maybe it would work with a normal spring for the shorter cell (FM 3xAA) and then a second spring seated deep in the tailcap for the longer cell. So to use the longer cell, remove the "normal" spring, and you are set. Is this what you want?

    No, let's just stick with the original plan and have it cutdown for the 3x adapter without recessing the tailcap spring. If I pick up some D cells in the future I'll deal with it then. Thanks for the fast replies.

    Will,
    When do we pay? I know my 1D digital camo, shortest possible for 1D cell will be at least $55, but I want to make sure I give you the correct amount if more work is needed.

    Thanks,
    Jose

    Jose,

    No need to send funds just yet. I will keep everyone up to date and will give each of you a heads-up that payment is due as I get close to completing/packing each light

    I don't suppose you could give me an estimate of what my total will be? I need to transfer some funds to paypal but I'm not sure how much the red 2D adds to my total. Thanks!

    Sure, no problem:
    - 1xD Digital Camo, switch modifications - using FM 3xAA holder - Hawaii (domestic but $5 extra shipping)
    => $55(1xD) + $10(switch) + $5 (extra s/h)

    2xD standard Red, just switch modifications.
    => $20(2D Host) + $10(switch) +$2.50 (extra s/h)

    So the total should be around $102.50

    OK folks, good news and bad news.

    Good news is that I got the package yesterday - the bad news is that they did not shipped everything I ordered. I called them up, and it turns out it was a simple shipping mistake, and they shipped the remaining hosts late yesterday, so I should have everything sometime late next week.

    I am finishing a metric threading project today/tomorrow ( http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...1&postcount=88 ), so I hope to start work on the hosts that I got within the next day or two. As always, I will post pictures during each one

    Here are the initial pictures












    And I already have my official list taped to my bench - this is what I use to keep me honest as to what I have completed and what is yet to be done



    I also started to cut some of the hosts already. The 6D looks mighty big on the metal cutting band saw!



    And this will be the first group - these are all cut at the same size (approx 160mm):



    I am also making a few special ones, which I call the "mdocod special", which is a very short 1D, designed around mdocod's 3xAA to 1D adapter, along with the switch modification, and the deep tailcap mod (required part of this mod due to the very short body). All you need is to order the mdocod battery adapter from Eric directly:







    I should have one or two of these specially modded mdocod special hosts in Black, available for sale pretty soon. If interested, please let me know.


    Link to order the mdocod adapter:

    Here is some work on one of the custom Digital Camo bodies:


    Here is a picture showing the "deep tailcap" mod on the right, compared to the regular/OEM tailcap on the left:



    Here are 3 of the ones I did for this wave:



    For bigchelis's special host with the Kai "D" LiIon cell, I had to cut the body longer than my typical 1xD. Here in this picture you can see the mdocod's 3xAA adapter on top of the FM 4xAA adapter, and the caliper's jaws open to 3.74" so show how much longer this "D" LiIon cell is:



    Here is the body already cut (in the middle), next to two standard length 1xD's:



    Here is nailbender's completed host:



    Here is the body grooving that I gave the Copper host that I am working on myself:



    Photos of the switch mod, both sides:





    Post #1 updated once again. Please look at your PM's for payment information

    The 1D body I will be doing the tail mod like when I put 3 C NiMH in a 2D Mag. I thought my 1D was going to be shorter. Can you make it normal lengh please.

    If it is too late then just send it over as is.

    Thank you,

    Unfortunately it is too late as the tube has been cut and re-threaded. That is why I wanted folks to check post #1 for any changes/mistakes, as that is the list I take to my "shop" when I am working on the custom pieces. I even cut a piece of steel to the approx. length to give me an idea of how big the cell was:



    You stated that you wanted the shortest possible solution given the dimensions of the Kai "D" cell, so I tried my best to give you that. Like I showed in the picture above, the Kai "D" LiIon cell is much longer than a regular "D" and longer than the 3xAA and 4xAA adapters. To give you the shortest piece I could make, I already did the taipcap mod and counter-sinked the spring 0.5" deeper into the tailcap, but since the actual cell is longer, the resulting host was also a little bit longer.

    If I misinterpreted what you wanted, then my most sincere apologies - please let me know when you get it. The tube is only about 1/4" longer than my normal tube, so it will probably work great for you. If it does not, I can make you a new one on my next wave and I will give you a discount on it, but I will need from you the exact length you want/need, so that I can give you a better fit
