For something different (non-titanium), here is a MirageMan customised Maglite host powered by 4x14650 LiIon cells (rechargeable from rear port) into which I put a de-domed SST50 with a DerWichtel 5A driver and heatsink. A very nicer thrower which I finished building back in 2012 and used the other night. Its a bit more violet coloured than the photo shows, all precisely and beautifully machined by MirageMan to fit the custom battery holder with charge port in the body and the head finned for a bit more cooling/aesthetic.

Hi,

Im new to the forum and have been lurking for a while prior to setting up an account. Your custom lights look awesome. How do I go about getting on a list / or better understanding the process / making a purchase. I don’t have a FB account.
Look forward to hearing back from you and appreciate your time.

Best regards,
Slickwatts

Wow that really brings me back over a decade. I had a Varabeam from Lambda lights I think it was called. It was my first custom light, 3C config, SST50, 3k lumens if I remember correctly. Kinda miss it should have never sold it.

Do I need an invitation to join the Mirage Man Facebook page? The "Join Group" button does not appear to be operational.

EDIT: Nevermind. It's working now.

Ten million years from now, when alien archeologists are picking over humanity's remains, they're going to find these lights. I suspect that they'll still work, too.

Very nice light but FYI it is a 3D Maglite (not 3C).


I know that, it started life as a D light but was set up for C cells. That's why I said 3 C configuration. Not sure why I used the Cs, maybe I couldn't find D rechargeables back then. 🤷‍♂️

I had the good fortune of finding this thread and connecting with Brian to produce two P60 hosts one 18350 and one 18650, images below.

I need to start off by thanking Brian, what a class act and talented machinist. He was awesome to work with. I had an idea of what I wanted, and Brian was able to take the concept, and make it light years better than I could have ever imagined. The attention to detail and machining on his lights are uncanny and second to none.

Brian was always available and made the process a great experience. I can’t recommend Brian or his lights enough and I forward to working with him again down the road.

So, I have a flashlight addiction, this is a safe place to admit that, right?… Point being these two lights are my favorites and probably will stay there until I get another from Mirage Man Custom. They’re functional art.

If your looking for a highend light and want to learn more about Brian and Mirage Man Customs I recommend connecting with him via his Facebook group. That’s where I connected with him. I’ll be posting more pictures of these lights in action over there next week.

Thanks again Brian,

Slickwatts
