    Hi all.

    Big thanks to Chris for taking on this project ! Got my adapter today. Nice hefty piece of brass, Running XM-L's in this small form can cause heat issues. The adapter has defiantly made a difference in thermal absorption ! And looks cool to boot.

    Here is a image installed on Vital Gear 1 cell body's , brass with a Cryos Bezel the black finned on a Solarforce A001 . I have a brass bezel ring on the way for the light with the brass E-C.

    Heh...I believe you mean CryOs bezel; I don't think Moddoo has any gang affiliations.

    The stripe of brass in the middle of the light looks good.

    What kind of brass alloy did you use? I just boiled it in salty vinegar for an hour to get an even patina started, and it doesn't show a trace of darkening anywhere.
    I usually try to keep my brass from darkening. It is 1/2 hard alloy 360 brass.

    This kind? http://www.onlinemetals.com/alloycat.cfm?alloy=360

    Brass that doesn't tarnish would be great, but as far as I know I've never seen one that doesn't tarnish, so if it's going to tarnish I'd rather it tarnish uniformly. Hence the boiling-acid treatment to etch the surface a bit.

    I live near an international airport. I figure the sulphur in the air ought to do the trick if nothing else will.

    If everyone on the list for a Copper E2C can pre-order/pre-pay I will purchase the material to make these reality. I have created a page on my store for just that.

    To Pre-order / Pay please click here! If you are not comfortable pre-paying, that is ok. Just let me know!

    These Copper E2C's should be ready to ship by next Friday (8/5/11)

    It's just a funky reflection from the flash/reflector off of the black 0-ring.

    Oops, it may actually be the leading edge of the glass lens !

    The few copper E2C's that were paid for will be shipping tomorrow. If you would like to get one of these E2C (E-C) adapters you can get them from my store.

    Yay!

    I've almost got my brass one ready for use. Only took a spray bottle of saltwater and several humid days outside in the sun. I have to say, I've never seen brass that was so hard to tarnish, except maybe the stuff they make Sacajawea dollar coins from.

    My copper E2C adaptor showed up sometime over the weekend. (I was busy camping.) Here it is next to its titanium and brass cousins:

    A bottle of brass blackener showed up in the mail today.



    If I didn't know better I'd think I'd done this before.

    I really like the way those look. A complete light out of the darkened brass or even Copper would look really nice.

    I think bronze would be a better choice than brass if you were going to make a light out of a pre-darkened copper alloy. The brass is a bit too yellow for my taste, though that might change once the brightened areas have a chance to tarnish a bit.

    They were "donated" by Fireworm F1 hosts. The bezel rings originally had six blunt teeth on them, which I have since shaved down using a bench grinder.

    If stainless steel is acceptable, I think Solarforce has something that meets your needs. There may or may not be any Fireworm F1's left for sale online. If nothing else, I'm sure TnC can make you one.
