The last year I was focused on a full kitchen/pantry/dining room remodel, and that's winding down now so have been able to get back to the shop. Finished up these two the other night.

The brass is the Saturn model (grip pattern) with tail fluting. The head is actually from Devin at Sigma Customs, and is loaded with a Mac compatible edc reflectored engine. The aluminum is an 18650 body I made to go on a shop relic spare engine holder, that can just be my beater shop light.

The brass one has a video posted in my fb group.

Pretty nice beater light! Haha. Those look fantastic! I love the Saturn grip. What is the smallest battery you use on your lights? Any 14500? I haven't bought a new light in almost a year and I have been thinking about a slim and light custom for dress pants carry. Unfortunately I am a bit out of the loop when it comes to what many makers are offering these days outside of CPF. I had carried an Aeon Mk III for this for a while but I wouldn't mind shifting away from the CR2 to something rechargeable. Your lights always look really good!

Thanks. I haven't done any 14500 lights yet. There are a few custom 14500s out there now, other than the AA pak mcgizmo. Okluma DCO, Laulima Metal Craft Todai slim (working on a second slim) an Focus Works F2 and F3 models.

I have a bunch of raw material, but all for 18350 sized lights, except for some smaller superconductor I have....

Ok, thanks. The AA McG is still a little large for what I am thinking. I often carry a SF Titan Plus with Prometheus Ti clip in dress pants, but would go up to a slim 14500. Must have a good clip though. I like low profile for that purpose, whereas 16340, 18350, or even a compact 18650 like the BOSS70 is fine for my normal everyday pants. I have been looking at the Laulima Slims and they do look nice. I may have to read more about those. Not familiar with Focus Works - will have a look.

Anyways, this is your thread so I don't want to talk too much about other makers. Superconductor is an interesting idea.... I recall the light you made with that was pretty outstanding!!
