Re: Tri Conversion pills for Mac's XML/SST-50 EDC lights

Lots needed. :) I've got about 10 interested, I figured I would get 20 to get moving, but I think to make it a low enough price per piece, may need 200. I've talked to 2 people already about making them, but still have a couple more to talk to...

200 is a little ambitious, don't you think? Even after 9 months, there were still only ~80 people interested in replacement retention rings and that included all Tri-EDC, Knurly EDC, SST-50 EDC, and XM-L EDC owners. You may want to take that into consideration. Just my 0.02...

Thanks for taking this project on. :thumbsup:

Yeah, it's too many, so now my brain is thinking about it being the basis for a new light...

okay. hoping to have a quote next week for some stock pills, and some conversion pills done up in TelCu. found a company specializing in small run parts, and it's about 4 blocks from my house :)

for potential counts, I've got 12 units of interest for the tri-conversion and one unit of interest for a normal tri pill.
machine shop got the material figured out, but still working out the details for the machine work.

Tellurium Copper is going to be the material quoted.

and we have confirmation that the triple conversion works in a Copper XML-EDC as expected...

and just for kicks I put the XML pill into the EN plated SST 16340 body, and all worked as expected...

I will definitely be interested in a Tri EDC one! I'm looking for a programmable one in copper if that is possible.

I may have to offer these as just bare pills. I'm looking into some things....

general question to those interested. are you looking for an empty heat sink or a ready to install complete pill?

and regular TRI-EDC fit or tri-conversion for EDC?
