I don't really know anymore what this thread is about, but I like it! I have some pics of my Haiku XP-G. ;) Nothing special, not for sale. :nana:


(They look different 'cuz I was trying different lighting for my homemade light tent.)

Trit is 6mm. So the slot must be a little bit longer than that I suppose.

My first Ti light was an XM-L Haiku that I got last month. Absolutely love this light.

Very very nice :thumbsup:, what's the 2nd one from the left, at first I thought it was a Haiku with a different head but it appears different all together?

Hmm. I might have to talk you into cutting some trit slots on mine too...

I really like the orientation of the trit in the photo above, especially on a light like the Haiku that has no fluting on either end. One of the members from Europe sent in his Haiku but he wants the trits aligned on the long axis. I'll do mine first to double check that the milling setup is correct, but plan to install them like those in the photo.

Cutting on the long axis is probably easier since the cut will be the same depth from one end to the other. I prefer the way yours are aligned, though.

Since the trit slots aren't integrated into the upward-facing part of the tailcap, I was thinking two slots per light, 90 degrees CW and CCW from the clip, should allow for maximum visibility at minimum cost. What do you think?

I been thinking quite a bit about trits for my personal Haiku, probably on the head as there is no clip to work around. As of now, I plan to space four around the head at 90° spacing, with those four installed "sideways" like the photo above. Then install four more that run "longways", again at 90° spacing & located exactly between the first four.

I was thinking two slots per light, 90 degrees CW and CCW from the clip, should allow for maximum visibility at minimum cost.
Two should work well, as there will almost always be one that's easily visible.

TYVM :)

That job was what I'd call "white knuckle machining" as it was my first try at titanium slots ... on a $350 head. After the first one was milled I was able to relax a bit. Still a tough little job, as slot length was held to -.0000" and +.0005", although depth of cut tolerance was double that.
