Hi,

forgive my newby question, but how do those centering rings work? I imagine the led is fixed to its heatsink with AAA, then you stick the centering ring onto the led and then the reflector on the centering ring (???). Whta sort of glue is to be used then?

Thanks.

Actually the rings are pushed onto the reflector then onto the LED. Of course you'll want to solder the wires to the LED first. The fit is snug so it makes it easy to move things around without worrying about the reflectors falling off or moving out of place.

I picked up the 19mm rings today along with a sample 27mm. I will post a few pictures tonight. I should have a sales thread up very soon.

I know, I know. I'm trying to package and ship all the 18650 bodies at the moment. I will get a sales thread up for the centering rings in the next few days.

I have been waiting for these to order an 18650 body at the same time. :oops: I may end up with no 18650 body an just these? :mecry:

I'm in for some XR-versions, so you got 100 orders already ?
Keep me posted. Cheers !

would something similar be useful for the "regular" line of McR's? (McR18, McR20, etc.)
Yes, would be awesome !

GreenLED, by using a Dremel, a file or some sandpaper for a minute the Mcr19XR centering ring should fit on an Mcr18 or Mcr20 with a Cree NO PROBLEM! ;) I know another really cool trick for these but I`m not telling you right now! :whistle: :nana: But I will later! :grin2:
