Am I going crazy, or what?!

Anyway, after searching everywhere (except, obviously, where that prototype is), I gave up and made another prototype and am going to take it tomorrow to the CNC shop for a bid. I don't expect any surprises and am guessing it'll cost around what my other 2x bodies cost.
I'll post photos soon.
Sorry for the confusion. I either need more sleep or more coffee.

That sucks big time.

:rant: No news.

I'm still waiting for a bid from the CNC shop. To be fair to them, they're working quickly for me on other projects, e.g. a second run of P1D bodies, the BigLeef assemblies, and...hold on to your privates...the LeefLite. :naughty:

Ok I'll bite what's the LeefLite? Or is it something Top Secret?

Why, the LeefLite is so secret I'd have to kill myself before telling you! :naughty:

How are people solving the problem of no button on the 18650 cells?
Putting a magnet there looks scary, since it could so easily slide a mm over and short. :poof:

I was given the idea to mound just enough solder on top to allow contact, works great.

Andy, you just need a Leef Safety Magnet (see the Hound's page, tho he's sold out briefly). These magnets are glued into nylon or fiberglass washers to prevent shorting should they slide sideways. :grin2:

James, think High End. Think...well...kick back and have another cold one and relax. Soon enough...

Actually, how's this for a scheme -- the light will be junk. No one will like it, Trash, plain and simple. :rant:

Now, having been disabused of any high hopes, you won't be disappointed! :lolsign:

Depending on the acceptance of the 27LT bodies, I'll make HD45 bodies (using C series tailcaps and 18650s, of course!).

UPDATE Here's where the project is. I have a bid from the CNC shop. They have my prototype and I don't have any photos of it. I'll post some as soon as I can, but it's pretty simple.

Basics -- 1x18650, uses any C-series tailcap (rear loading), HA-III black. Not much else to say, except that the bodies will either be knurled or have an intertwining (left & right hand) helix pattern.

The cost will be $60.

Let's try an informal interest poll. Who's seriously interested at this price?
