Thread: SST-90 1D mag

  1. #1

    Default SST-90 1D mag

    Finally finished my 1D sst-90 mag project. The specs are...

    Mag host cut down to 1D size, finned the head, quad bored the battery compartment, milled lines in the grip, and slotted for trits by the switch
    Five Mega 4x AA cell holder
    4x AW IMR 14500 lithium cells
    Mag rebel reflector
    UCL glass replacement lens
    DW 9a driver
    DW SST90 heatsink/socket for Dmags
    SST90 emitter (I forget the binning but it is the top output bin)

    Some observations from last night. The sst-90 emitter in this setup has awesome flood that even has some good reach to it but is in no way is a thrower. But it will make the front of my house look literally like daylight @ 25 yards.

    I will get a beam shot tonight.

    In this pic you can see the trits are slightly glowing, it was too bright to get the full effect of them in the pic.

    Mag mods are awesome and yours looks very clean.

    I thought 14500 and AA were the same size?

    I have not been here in a while sorry I have been living at the cpfmarketplace. Runtime is short with this one. The IMR cells I am using do not have much mah. Also I am using the mag rebel reflector and I will say that this reflector is superior to the stock one. With that being said it was really difficult to get it focused to a good beam because the rebel reflector is so deep. The head just about has to be unscrewed all the way to where the o-ring groove is almost exposed and I had to modify DW's heat sink tremendously. I would of been better off machining a sink from copper right off the bat with as much work had to be done to his to make it work right.

    The light gets pretty warm quick, no doubt about it. I never run it for more than a minute so it's hard to say if it would get hot enough to hurt itself. I would say probably so.

    I have the same setup and I was able to focus the rebel reflector by widening the base of it by about 1-2mm. A step drill would have been ideal for this but since i didnt have one i carefully used a rotary tool with a grinding wheel at high rpm (i actually ruined one reflector lol)

    the mag head is partially unscrewed because of the size of the heat sink... i managed to cram it down as far as I could and screw the head down slowly and carefully. the mag head sits right on the oring (oring visible), and the reflector sits on top of the heatsink

    here is a shot of the finished product



    (the wall is not white in case anyone is wondering)

    To allow mag head screw all the way in while using deep reflector, I usually grind away the heat sink rim, push heatsink down the mag tube about 10mm or so, this way mag head will screw down natually

    Hobby only, I don't do custom mods as a service, thanks for understanding.

    I did exactly that except I used a razor blade and carefully shaved a tiny bit off at a time checking the fit periodically. It does focus well after everything I did. It is very bright to say the least. Over twice as bright as my XML based lights that I push to the max. I am going to make an off road light fixture with 2 or 4 of these for my jeep sometime in the future. I have to finish my XML offroad light project first though.

    I did that in a mill so it looks nice but you can only push it so far down with that massive driver.

    Take a look at my sales thread in my Sig for how i solved it. The dw heatsink is flawed, but I like the setup :-).
