To be more specific I have two of H22A wonderful BHC's for the minimag and I am thinking of having some sandwiches made with some Seoul to use with these lights.

Will these reflectors focus the, properly?

Rommul,

Speaking from understanding and not experience with your application, you'll need to raise the Seoul approx. 0.030" in the reflector for proper focus.

The Shoppe sells spacers for this which raises the Seoul on a typical LE, but with the threaded Mag head, all you'd need to do is sand, file, or grind 0.030" off the bottom of the reflector and screw the head down further.

Be careful that the reflector doesn't contact the dome of the Seoul. The dome is soft silicone and may be damaged or sheared by contact with the reflector.

Most likely trim down by 0.03" or 0.77mm from the back. If the opening is large enough for the round shoulders to pass the reflector, all you need to do is raise the led by 0.03"

Is this true also for the regular 27mm reflector (short version?).
Cheers !

Yes. At least you don't have to remove .030" from that reflector. You should also find some way to insulate the leads from the led because they tend to touch the bottom of the 27mm or the 38mm reflector.

Vacuum - Will using the Joker version of the 38 eliminate the need to insulate the leads from the LED? As far as insulation goes, is the oft used nail polish sufficient? Thanks. KK

Rommul, I did this mod a while back.
It's a perfect match:twothumbs.
You don't need the little copper spacers.
All you have to do is, to sand down the opening of the reflector until the die of the SSC will fit. A tiny little more than necessary to be sure, that the silicone of the die will not be damaged by installing into the head.
The black plastic-part at the SSC is a little thicker than the plastic at the Luxeon, so after conforming the reflector, the high is about the same.
And the result is outstanding........much better than with the Luxeons:grin2:

Best regards

For better understanding I did a picture:

That's a beamshot with the combination on high (Flupic) compared to the Fenix P1D-CE on boost (picture below). Distance to the caravan is 40 meters.

Nice....gotta get one of those reflectors to play with. The 27 Short version needs 0.03" taken off and can not be raised into the reflector.

I used sandpaper (grit 400) on the table and drawed circles and 8's.
Wearing cotton-gloves and be carfeful not touching the inside of the reflector.:)
