    and check on it later today.

    Too late John! It's already up to $300.

    Welcome to CPF! I do hope that you are serious about bidding on these items... and not just messing around with them. That really would be rather juvenile, don't you think?

    Saturday will be my birthday and since I will be 53, I
    cannot be classified as juvenile, I think.
    I will gladly send you by paypal now...$350 for a start.
    Just let me know, ok. John

    This is as unique as the original LL built by tvodrd hisself that went for $600 or more -- but this one has the exalted (and custom machined) FRAEN. Whatta beam it makes. I would put in a bid, but it's already past my bid-time (get it? BID-time?).

    welcome johnlightsup!

    You have 1 year on me but I'm still a juvenile at heart! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Just ask Sasha.... on second thought, let's not bring this to her attention. She has a whip and......

    Anyway, good luck with your bid for this light!

    Welcome to CPF, Johnlightsup ! What a great entrance [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    Atomic6, that's a cool graphic you put together, but you're too kind putting my handle up there.

    The inspiring was done by all of you fellahs: the modders, aspiring modders and modification fans who make this and the Homemade & Modification Forums so fascinating and envigorating.

    I supplied the cheekiness to send Don the light and a tiny check to pay for a loop of solder and dab of epoxy and asked him to pitch in all his knowhow and labor, an emitter, an optic, Dat2zip's sammich, and (as I see here) his last head from Larry (tvodrd) and then donate it to CPF after he took out what he absolutely needed to replace his inventory.

    Don tackled it with his customary alacrity, enthusiasm and ingenuity and.... here we have it!

    All of you fellahs have been contemplating how to hot-rod Peter's slick little AA Roadster and when I saw what Katokichi did and read that Don didn't have an Arc AA yet...well, I let my cheekiness have a loose rein.

    Thanks to Sasha and the others who keep CPF available to us all.

    It's great to see all the enthusiasm for the Larry Light II.

    Are the optics/sandwich easlily replaceable like the FF?

    Ray,

    The sandwich is epoxied in and a solder lead goes from the back end of the head to the PCB. The Optic is accessible by removing the front bezel cap but since it's a turned down optic, one would need another custom optic to replace it. I think this light should be considered as is. The mineral glass window is easily replaceable should it be damaged as are the O-rings. This light is a MOD and not a specifically designed light with swappable modules like the original LL CR2 or the FireFly. The converter and LED can be destructively replaced if required for some reason. I could have left the sandwich loose but chose to improve the ground path as well as thermal path by a "permanent" method of install. I should add that I also needed to turn a reduced diameter shoulder on the emitter board of the sandwich to get it up to meet the Fraen Optic.

    Without going into boring details, both Larry and I have destroyed perfectly good LL CR2 heads in an attempt to mate the Fraen with the sandwich. The dang O-ring groove doesn't leave enough wall thickness for a simple approach. I *had* another spare LL-CR2 head prior to this mod attempt; one gave up its life for this light to become a reality. Well it was my fault. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I want to reiterate that this light is a "mod". The Arc AA tube where it was cut has a lip of raw Al. This is a cosmetic issue that can be taken care of with instant anodize, AKA Sharpie. There is only one of these on the planet and I don't think either Larry or myself have any plans of seeing that number increase! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I suppose the singular nature of this light gives it a collectable value. It is also a good functioning light that's pretty cool!

    - Don

    Two CR2 heads, born of a marriage of the same alloy 145 Cu and 7075 T6 Al bars are together again, killed by impatient modders. May they rest in peace. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mecry.gif[/img]

    Hey...!

    You`d better watch it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ohgeez.gif[/img]

    The confessions you two are publicly making are bringing you closer and closer to criminal indictments in the world of the CPF.

    Sorry, but I have another question. Is this bezel the same as a FF bezel? For example, would this body fit a FF bezel without modification?

    With apologies to all for engaging in the "Joy-Of-Being-Off-Topic", here`s the latest update:

    1) "Johnlightsup" is in the lead, with a bid of $350.00.
    Welcome aboard, Johnlightsup! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    2) But still a lot of time to go...and the "usual
    suspects", plus some other new players, are lurking
    as we speak.

    Raindrop...?
    JohnSidneyB...?
    Batterystation...?

    Be alert Johnlightsup...
    And good luck to all!

    Carpe,

    Thanks for the re-cap! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Ray,

    I don't have a FireFly to look at but I doubt if the Arc AA could fit since the FireFly is a 123 sized light as I recall. If you compare the body diameter of the E1e/KL1 pic next to this light, I think you'll see what I mean. This light is roughly the diameter of a 123 cell.

    Thanks for the update. I am willing to bid higher if necessay.
    A question if I may. I would kill myself if I tried to make a flashlight. Reasons are not that important. I am purchasing a 3 Led 3watt = 9 watts of LSIII to get more light and a longer thrown beam. Would someone explain to me
    why a flashlight made with 6, 5w leds is not possible? Does
    anyone know if Lumileds has plans to make a more powerfull
    Led? Say 10 to 20 watts each. My background is Beef Processing an I know a light that is full spectrum, using less power and producing no heat would be well recieved in
    both processing and retail sales. I am currently employed
    by the Sharper Image and a replacenent for a 60 watt yellow
    incadecent flood lamp would provide better light with a huge cost reduction in electricity, not to mention heat.
    TSI sells a couple of led flashlights and the INOVA X5 plus
    the 24/7. I wish the X1 would have had a 5w led with the
    current focused lens. Would anyone consider making a much more powerfull LED flashlight? I need to consider the final cost and I will pay for both parts and your labour myself.
    Thanks, John

    it might be best it you were to make another post for your questions in the homemade and modified forum, so as not to distract from the auction here. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
