    Default Cryos II Tritium Installation

    I have the Cryos II and it has 6 trit slots around the head. I have installed trits before with Norland 61 in a Ronac Standoff tailcap. The trouble I am having is the slots are too shallow in the Cryos. I found something about someone using a dremel to go a little deeper in the slots but that seems like a dangerous plan. Besides I looked everywhere before posting this to try to find that and I can't find it. I would be severely irritated to say the least if I messed up that Cryos. Any ideas?

    Maybe talk to Barry at PrecisionWorks about milling out the slots a little deeper. Will cost you but his work is second to none.

    The Cryos slots remind me on the Ronac tail slots - not quite large enough for a trit. But I'm none too sure about the best way to approach this. The head can be fixtured in the horizontal position & that would allow the end mill to cut in from the side. Or it can be held vertically & the tool will cut from the front end.

    The vertical-front cut is going to bury the trit & make it hard to see except from straight on. The horizontal-side cut will expose more of the vial BUT will also leave a visible machined edge that will be bare aluminum & shiny. Might look good & just as easily might not. I'd be glad to do this but the results will not be clear until the cutting is done.

    Much easier to remove the metal than it is to put it back.
