    Boring out a Detonator tailcap, essentially the same amount of setup & time as a single cell light.

    Almost fully caught up, one package of five lights that need clips & the bench is clear. Meaning 2-3 week turnaround at this time.

    Good Morning

    Could you bore a Surefire 9Z? Here are photos of the light: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...EpHbE9pTl9TMUk

    Yes, I've done a few of them, they are more time-consuming to set up and the price is $62 + $8 return shipping in the USA or $30 international.

    Please remove both O rings and all the combat rings before shipping.

    I've never machined one before so I cannot tell you yes or no.

    Referring to this post... Thanks

    Please note ...

    I now offer 2-week turnaround for twice the delivered price I've always charged (i.e. $100 for a 6P, $120 for an E1 or E2, etc.)

    All prices are in post #1.

    Three lights came in about a week ago, one E2E bored for 18650 (photos) & two E1E's bored for 18350. Bought a new reamer for 18350 & it works well, photos later.

    First image (BORING3) shows assembled E2E running 18650 to the original SF incan bulb. Second image (BORING2) shows tube finish off the reamer, smooth enough to function but it does not meet my acceptable standard. Third image (BORING1) shows finish after ball honing.

    I was recently referred to Barry by Hanko Machine Works as I was looking to have a couple of E Series Surefire torches bored. Communication was great with Barry from start to finish. Barry offered his new expedited service to me as I was looking for a quicker turnaround and man was it fast. I don’t think I need to mention much about the quality of the work because we all know it’s top notch. Thanks for the great work and quick turnaround Barry.

    Barrys work is definitely top notch. I have owned a few lights second hand that he had worked on and the machine work was amazing. Barrys communication is also very clear and professional.My problem is the time it takes to get work done. I had a light with him for some simple trit slots and 3 months later I found out it was still in the package on his shelf. I realize that flashlights may not be his primary line of work, but if you are going to offer an advertised service and cant deliver in 3 months then something is wrong. I had Barry return the lights to me with the work incomplete as he could not provide a definitive time-frame on the work.Depending on the mod work done there are other machinists on CPF that do equivalent or better work for significantly less money and sub-month turn around times.
