I have a titanium piece Fred machined that threads into the hole, it is tapered with a hole for a lanyard to go thru it. A. Custom machined piece by Fred, and he was nice enough to sell it to me. It is not the swiveled thing. It was a prototype works piece from Fred.
AND, I LOVE IT!!!
I've been lusting for one of these for a while and have a few questions:
1. Do you offer them in different tints if requested?
2. Can these potentially be modded to new emitters later down the road as technology changes?
3. What's the beam like?
Thanks for your time! I've always been intrigued by your work Fred!
These were a production run and I also had all the LEs assembled by Darkzero, when he used to do that kind of work, so there is no choice of LED tint.
As for modifying the LE, yes, it could be done, i.e., remove the LED and install a different one, but it probably would be easier just to machine a new LE and install the LED/driver that you want. Mind you, the driver that is in the TLII is only 10mm in diameter so finding a replacement might be hard.
The beam is nice and smooth, since I use a slightly orange peeled reflector--there still is a noticeable hot spot though.
BTW, I am down to my last two of these.
