    Default WIP -- the Indigo Flow with McClickie

    Credit where due: the diagonal knurling on the round stock was done by darkzero.






    Most of that anodizing will be removed, leaving only the knurling and the grooves blue.

    Are the larger grooves big enough to act as anti-roll flats?

    I also think it looks superb as is, and removing the anodizing might take something away, other than physically of course.

    Freakin' cool regardless!

    Everytime I look at your new stuff, I have to place paper towel on the table for my drool.

    I have 2 lights from Fred with the same grooves. They both roll at top speed!

    I used to be afraid of the dark. Now, the dark is afraid of me.

    Matt,

    Yes, although that wasn't my design intent. Really handy when you want to photograph it, too.

    A little more work on the light today:






    Next up--installing the McClickie switch and making the light engine.

    This is a spec build and will first be offered for sale to those on my Flashlights for Sale Opt-in List; if it doesn't sell there within a day, then it will be posted for sale on CPF.

    BTW, if anyone would like to be on my Opt-In e-mail list, please send me an e-mail asking to be added. My e-mail is in my signature. Thanks.

    I think that I'll leave that up to the buyer--whatever he/she wants, given the head size, battery and Ti material restrictions, I will make.

    Another fantastic light! But alas it's not going home with me. If I only had a light or two to sell! Fred can't we work out a deal where I just send you my paychecks in exchange for future lights and a small spot to sleep on in your workshop. I think this is a case of you can't own just 1 "Photonfanactic" light. But whoever ends up with this light will cherish it just as much as I would. thanks for showing us another masterpiece.

    Did this one sell already, Fred?

    What did you end up putting into the light as far as LED and LE goes?

    I plan to put a Cree XM-L in the LE, which will be a five-level output driver running at 3.04A.

    Yes, the Indigo Flow has been sold.
