This is a very interesting build log, thank you for taking the time to write it all up tab665! Fred's work is outstanding and it's a pleasure to watch the process.
If you're talking to him can you ask him two questions for me?
1) How the heck is his workpiece always so clean? Where is all the cutting fluid and swarf?
2) I'm curious what motions he made with his boring bar to leave such a prominent, angular battery bump?
Cheers man, looking forward to seeing the final results!
Would it be possible to post a picture of this light next to a 6P for size comparison?
