    forun Down for Several Days?

    Several people use the forum as the center and maybe only outlet for their business. When it goes down it must shut them off 100%. I wonder why a troblemaker like TooManyGizzmos wasn't just Banned. If he drives the admin. crazy with requests and complaints who needs him? Why shut down this...

    Mag C & D Tailcap Spring - Resistance?

    ''' A lot of guys add wire or copper braid as a resistance fix to the tailcap springs of Maglights on high output incans. Looking at these springs the wire diameter is pretty big. Is there really much resistance in the stock Mag C or D springs? Would the bulb really see more voltage if...

    Comparing my M60 and M61

    Last night on a dog walk I grabbed two EDC's. One had a Malkoff M60 and the other a M61. As I traveled around the neighborhood I tested & compared the two. The M61 is a nice - practical light. It has good throw and a nice spill area also. The M60 has a narrower spill area but thows further and...

    WF-139 Charger ?

    I have a couple of these and they have worked out fine. I have checked my batterys after the light turns green and they seem to stay at the voltage when the red light turned off. Even after forgetting and leaving batterys in charger overnight no over charging problems. I mainly use IMR cells...

    Mag 3 D and 4 X 26500 cells?

    I think that 4 X 26500 cells total about 200mm total. 3 X D cells are about 180mm. Will they fit in a Mag 3D if tailcap spring is cut & shortened? Don't know cap will handle the extra 20mm requiring a custom extended caps.

    Mag D Switch - Mods?

    I am w/o soldering skills or a machine shop envinorment. This appears to make a rocker type install not for me unless there is a drop-in unit avaiable. Is there any easy-simple way to upgrade a Mag D Switch to better handle higher current levels? I would just use an AW Soft-Start Switch but...

    Surefire Tailcap Springs

    Surefire makes nice products. Their tailcap switches work fine with the primarys that they are designed for. I have found when using high power LED or Incan and IMR cells they - deform - turn color - shorten in length by 1/2. I have not had this problem with the McClicky Switch or even the...
