    REBELLiON Is Born (a.k.a. M963-KL2)

    To protect the innocent I can't release any names; and because it was so late I rushed it out without the chance of proper photos. I've PM'd the owner and suggested posting nice photos but here we go..... 2.2KLumens; 5 custom rebel .3" flood reflectors; 5 minimagLED reflectors; Mcr17 trimmed; 2...

    Sold/Expired Temporarily closed: 1C Aspheric Maglites **Now with beamshots**

    I'm sorry for the delays, anyone who wants a refund will be issued one. Allow me to elaborate: This summer has been hell; we have gone through 2 tractors, one car, and on top of all that my father has a hernia which has me over at the farm nearly every day to help him lift things that are over...

    What's the ProPoly of rifles? **Got a Marlin 980S!** **IT'S EXCELLENT!**

    Re: What's the ProPoly of rifles? Go with tried & true: Yugo m48 (or any other good-condition mauser) Bolt-action, uses 8x56mm ammo; around $200 and next to an SKS is the definition of reliability (I've pushes 100's of rounds through both an SKS and mauser; I have had 0 jams and every shot...

    [email protected] batteries for dummies

    I'm going to get flamed for this but here goes: 4D mag, running primaries or NIMH's Use 3 leds with the following optics: 27mm, and 2x17mm Grab some of the ebay 36cp 5mm leds and frost them; stick a few in between the reflectors to give you some up close spill. As for a driver, I'd say go...

    Cree or SSC at 1500mA?

    Not trying to start a flame war; but I built two lights running the same bin into 3C mags; driven at 1.43A and they're still working to this day

    My sister is hospitalised again. :(

    I've had friends with similar hospitalizations; Just stay supportive & let her know what you care about her. If she doesn't want to talk about it, don't prod too much Hope everything turns out well

    AAAAA!!!! I hate driver boards

    To remove epoxy: Put on a gas mask(seriously) Go outside(with a breeze) Put a little rubbing alcohol onto the epoxy in question Light Once the alcohol has burned off the top layer of epoxy should be gooey, scape and repeat.

    Do LSD cells retain their LSD after many years/cycles?

    I honestly don't know anyone who would hang onto some LSD for more than a couple weeks, MAX:tinfoil:

    How do you back up your computer data?

    I do manual backups to this monster: Isolated from water, shock, sunlight, and more!. The PSU is arctic alumina'd to the can wall for better heatsinking, and the switch/circuit board is mounted&potted with 2ton epoxy. The power cord, USB cord, and PCMCIA card all fit inside. Grab your files...

    Polishing E2D crenulated bezel

    You've got it right on the stripping, I prefer 25% lye(strips within seconds) but to each his own.... As for a sating finish; the longer you let it soak in a lye-based cleaner the rougher the finish will get. So constantly monitoring it in the bath will probably get you the satin look you...

    Carbon-Zinc Batteries - Still Useful?

    Old Cameras. I've got a 1972 Yashica TL Electro; which takes 2 mercury batteries(2.7v) Supposedly if you feed it alkalines the over-voltage(usually 3.3) burns up the light meter. Suppodely CZ batteries have low enough of a discharge that they won't do this. I'm thinking of making an adapter...

    Any way to switch the emitter on a MagLED module?

    You can do a straight switch; at the expense of brightness(from heat buildup) Or you can do a full blown conversion from a regular mag using an anodised DHS(D heat sink); seoul P4, and standard 3 cell maglite

    LED Explosion!

    Some idiots in a high school class hooked up one to a 220v line....went off like a firecracker and left a black mark on the asbestos table. These were the same guys who would hook up to the 110v test bench(had a safety trip) and tap each other's/their own arms onto two bare leads to make their...
