Thread: Macs EDC Brass with Turbo head

    Default Macs EDC Brass with Turbo head

    Hi all,

    I really had a very small role to play in this light member mcbrat sent me the body and head and requested a light engine/adapter to mate the 2 other parts. So I guess this is the "mcbrat special"










    This is such a wonderful light. It feels like a million bucks in your hand. Looks like some 1800s early 1900s steam punk and has all the power and feel of a 2016 super light. What more could a guy ask for.


    Thanks again Mick for giving me the opportunity to hold such a work of art in my flashaholic hands.

    Now that's a chunk of brass. Drool!
    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    For those wondering about the head, it's a Mr. Bulk Big Bulkhead head meant for a brass lion cub light.

    the blue board you see is the driver board (with tall spring) on the battery side of the driver/LED section .
    The body and switch is stock Mac, and the head is stock Mr. Bulk.

    so now I can just switch heads. the standard EDC head, or the Turbo Head. just need to do a Tri head to complete the set

    Ah yes, I see that now. The driver and spring had the look of one of those badass high amp clickys...but of course, it's on the wrong end...silly me.

    That is one terrific light and gives you some great options!

    Thanks all. I really enjoyed this project. Brass is a nice break from the daily grind.

    Just coming back to look again. And got to thinking, that has to be one of the best Mac legos, and we will call it a Mac lego, I have ever seen. Great eye for this one. Good job.

    A "Bulked" up Mac! Excellent idea there Mick!

    I suspect "Mr Bulk" would approve.

    Beautiful , I am looking at the body and thinking modern , looking at the head and thinking 1900's. If I could think of a name, the centurion fits the bill for me...........light of the century .

    Amazing work!
