Hello, apologies if the answer to this question lies elsewhere in the thread, I just don't have time to read through it at the moment.

If anyone is able, would you mind pointing me toward the maker? I'd like to inquire into a build.

Thanks!

Just finished this host yesterday. A little twist on the light in my avatar.

Wow. I only just now discovered this thread. Amazing lights. Can I get one of those? Or something similar?

Magellan's post reminded me of a contact I made a couple years ago, and then never followed up on.

I followed up this month, and it arrived literally on Christmas eve. Sorry it took me so long to post.

This beauty has a new home.

The edges of this piece are so sharp they actually cut my son's finger when he accidentially brushed it.

The first time I noticed the joint between the bezel and the head was this 2nd photo! I still have a hard time finding it without the right light.

I have never had a full piece of Mirage Man Aleph. It's beeeeeefy stuff. Whoa.

Gotta say, I do love this host. Running a DatiLED Nichia 219B 3S with a 1.4A high. The reflector is a nice thrower with a well-contained spill.

It's the ghost grey silver shine of raw Ti that I love, and this light has it in spades.

I can get over the 16mm battery limitation of the Aleph/E size when it's this beautiful.

This is everything anyone could ever want in a Ti Aleph host.

I love the crenulations. At first they felt a tad aggressive, but they lock it in your pocket. And you need to learn how to turn it on without hurting your fingers (not really).

If you have the means, I highly recommend the work of Mr. Mirage Man.

Best wishes from Holland,
jay

For those that may be interested I'm back in the shop making lights. I'm not on cpf much anymore but I've started a Facebook group and invite all to join. Hope to see you there!
