    Step by step guide to making a 1xD Mag host ...

    Thank you guys for your kind words :o I updated post #2 with the other "nugget" I wanted to share, which is my own guide for finding the "minimum" length for a given battery combination. Back when I was doing these 1xD's a lot, I most often was given the task of making the 1xD the shortest...

    Photos of inserts for Aluminum ...

    No, not the expert. Just that I "really" love them for Delrin and also Aluminum, since they are even sharper than Al-specific inserts - and they seem to last forever with Delrin and Al. That being said, I did try them with Titanium, and they did not last. Some reading on PCD and its uses...

    Testing coatings for flashlights ...

    Wow, older thread resurrected :-) Even the picture links don't work! To answer the question, coatings were not tested against salt water. I however would have zero reservations on using either one of these baked finishes around salt water. Will
