    I haven't seen any of his amazing work in awhile myself but, I'm sure if you ask he'd be only too happy to turn you whatever you'd like!

    TB has been producing new Aleph/E-series parts lately. There have been a few Sales Threads for various styles of tail-housings as well as some spiffy trit-slots to fit on the SPY 007 knobs.

    I've also seen a very nice TB Ti host with 27mm long head, pineapple body and chunky tail.

    Like karlthev said, there's no harm in asking if you're interested in something.

    I apologize, as these have been posted previously, but TB's work is just fantastic! These three are the extent of his work that I have... Ti 17670 PD body w/ trit, a'la 27lt, hosting a McGizmo Ti PD-s27 head. Then, a 123 host w/ a 27mm head and reflector that is so nicely proportioned, a photo does not do it justice. Also a 2/3A Mule that I also had an AA body made for with the same croc pattern as the 123 tube on the 27mm light. The McClicky equipped tailcaps are interchangable.

    Spectacular lights, scout24. The 27LT-inspired PD body is amazing.

    Easilyled- Thanks! I have to know more about the second light up from the bottom in your post 21 picture, the one with the trit bezel and very cool tailcap... Would you mind sharing? BF1- If those were all mine, I may have to use that photo as wallpaper on my laptop. I find new details each time I look at that photo...

    Very sorry to hear that, my friend. At times like that one realizes that there are still more important things in life than flashlights. I hope you and your family were all unharmed and that the insurance paid up.

    I remember that you had a wonderful collection though. The best around at the time by far.

    That's really sad to hear

    The titanium parts didn't survive the fire ? How come you couldn't harvest the Ti hosts, and repopulate them with innards ??

    All is good see
    Yes Titanium parts do survive well in a fire but in the clean up many Titanium lights are parts were simply trashed.

    Now< to get this thread back on the subject, in the center of the first pic is a Tranquility Base made Ti 18650 battery tube in E to E series. Very tough to machine 18650 size but for TB Second pic shows it with after a quick cleaning and The Pineapple was also fried and the Ti bezel is TB made and I am 99% sure the Ti head is TB but might be Morelite??? Things were a mess so????

    Again, my appoligies if it seemed I was changing the theme of this thread which was not my intention.

    Hey & Howdy ya'll!!!!!

    Awesome, that polished up nicely. I say leave them the way they are, gives them character & is a reminder that you pulled through a bad experience. I'd love to add that fire roasted Mclux to my Mclux collection.

    What do you mean? TB lights are still the top on the block. Too bad I'm not rich enough to afford them. I only own one TB light, not shiny like the others here but as far as I know mine is also one of a kind & I'm proud to own it.

    Sorry, I have retired from flashlight modding & I do not make custom flashlights. Thank you for your understanding.

    Evilgrin07 Re: Tranquility Base Customs

    Thanks to TB, my 007 now has a turbohead!

    Modeled after the Aleph Pr-T, but with a TB twist on things to make it look as though it was meant to be there.
    When I first got it back, an XM-L and IMS27 reflector were installed, but I wasn't totally happy with the tint and beam quality.
    So today in went a neutral XP-G and McR27short reflector, and now this sucka throws pretty nicely and has a beautiful tint and beam !!
    The larger head actually makes this even easier to hold onto and I don't even notice the extra bulk during pocket carry.

    Thanks again Tranquilitybase! I couldn't be happier!
    Hope to have more work done by you in the future!

    Unique adaptation by TB, DaFab. Resourceful and beautifully executed.

    I think you did well to settle on an XPG and McR27. This produces an excellent all-round beam with throw and flood.

    I have a similar set-up in a TB Ti Aleph-1 "tribute" light. It uses the McGizmo Makai 6v (1A) L.E with XPG which is focussed by the McR27 in the Aleph-1 head.

    This is on the right in the pictures below.

    Thanks Barry. It has the Makai 3V L.E which runs on an 18500 Li-ion. Don (McGizmo) made a thin Delrin spacer which isolates the solder points on the L.E from the Makai reflector. So basically its the Makai 3V guts in a TB 18500 38mm host.

    You'll have first dibs if I ever consider parting with it Barry. You have the most amazing collection of lights that I've ever seen.
