    TOOGLE SWITCH ORIENTATION RING :

    (It is usually part of a toogle switch made from thin metal sheet with inner teeth that catch switch notch and outer teeth that slips in panel groove to prevent rotation switch between tightening . But it is also unfortunately direct link for intrusion of water between space under boot through hole to dry side of lid. Switch notch and threads can be also sealed by some sealent , but this ring is good alternative. It sold separately.)

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?263774-How-about-something-like-the-AW-soft-start-but-with-a-normal-switch-and-one-stage
    with add of power FET you can turn weak reed switch in powerfull cheap small switch ( condition is that must be magnet for ON state present ) , if you want to reed operate as pushbutton switch , you have toa add latching circuit. Electrolit capacitor is here used for Soft Start function to prevent slow firing of bulb wire - prolonge wire life.

    PIEZO SWITCH :
    (electro/mechanic switch work on deformation of quartz crystall ; switch only only on MOMENTARY PRESSURE CHANGE (so will not switch on slow descent of lamp to depth . Piezo swiches are normaly momentary switches -don't hold potential state after switching without electronics (discharging quartz crystal inside)) . For some microprocessor is that no problem because it can read state Hi/Lo output of switch in ms , but if you want to keep Hi/Lo state ,you have to choose latching piezo or add normal piezo switc a latching mechanizm which keep state until next touch.

    Piezo switches is also used in diving computers like
    http://www.shearwaterresearch.com/ or http://www.heinrichsweikamp.net/

    ACCELOMETER
    is special type of piezo switch which senses and measures shocks - acceleration from hold position to acceleration or fading of mass. (equation (F*t = m*dv ; means ; F=m*a)
    Small mass is in that case glued on piezo crystal . From switching you need uC with programmed code (or operative amplifier with Schmidt trigger ). Accelerometer is used as switch in http://liquivision.com/ , diving computers. Key is that one accelerometer sealed in housing (best in the centre ) can detects many directions by tapping on enclosure which can simply replace many buttons by tapping directions basic 6 (full 10)

    WET CONTACTS :
    simple and effective : on two pins split from each-other is always present very small amount of electric tension air is insulation , water sea or fresh is conductor ( with exception of distillated water ). When submerged small current measured in uA flows through contacts and hold on open transistor or FET... When back out of water contacts dry and close circuit. It is possible also to charge lamp through thats contacts .That principe uses computers SCUBAPRO/UWATEC (aladin, Galileo, Luna, Sol) charging through contacts some Fa-Mi torches.

    DIY : SURFACE PROTECTION OF STAINLESS STEEL -PASSIVATION

    (after stainles steel machining with touch of cutting tools from machining steel , iron , SS become ''ACTIVE'' and can start to RUST! With simple cooking in solution with citric acid (food preservative ) we can simply stop rusting of SS!

    http://www.mmsonline.com/articles/how-to-passivate-stainless-steel-parts

    http://www.bssa.org.uk/topics.php?article=68 more simple: look under ''ASTM A967 citric acid passivation treatments'' table



    DIY : SURFACE PROTECTION OF METALS - ELECTROPOLISHING

    (after machining SS or aluminium we normaly have viewed microscopically rough surface , that also means increased surface area compared to the smooth surface. Smooth surface contains fewer pores, which could be the anchor for starting corrosion. Secondary aesthetic aspect of electropolishing is reflective mirror look surface . With proper electrolyts all metall materials could be polished.

    What about some sources for aspheric lenses??

    Im looking for some glass ones that are around 15mm diam mater with a nice short focal length and have a very tight focus??

    Lucca, please add this link to the optics section. I don't think many of the divelight subforum readers know about it:
    http://www.anchoroptics.com/

    they have some pretty nice lenses and are really cheap for quality optics (so I've heard, didn't buy from them yet).

    @gav, maybe you can find something here that you like. their search engine is nice as well.
    Note that tight focus is not something that can be specified for a lens. you want a short focal length to capture as much light as possible. therefor the lens also needs to be big enough to capture the light when the led is in focus. therefor you want lenses with a low f-number.

    Hi, Lucca.
    You replied to me on ScubaBoard today concerning underwater housing for Canon 550D.
    Could you please tell me if this momentary toggle switch would work underwater properly without need for additional protection? http://www.apem.com/pdf/MT.pdf

    It's from one of your links. I'm also considering toggle switch with lever and hexseal boot with it. Do you have idea which option would be better?
    Thank you.

    Hi Lucca,

    The Sandwich Shoppe is also a great resource for various parts.

    Good thread!

    Edit: Missed it the first time reading, but you do have a link to the Shoppe's 14mm sammies. However they have a bunch of other stuff as well.

    Great list, thank you.

    Some minor things, Finnsub is not a finnish manufacturer, I believe they are from the Czech Republic. On the other hand there is also Scubamafia from Finland http://www.scubamafia.fi/torches-acc...s-c-27_29.html . I have not seen their torches, but they claim to somehow get a 7° angle with triple XML, I wonder if this is just a bit optimistic or what optics they might use.
