    Is the body going to be 25mm or 26mm?

    Default Re: ReyLight: 18350/18650 Titanium Flashlight Host, with 10 trits slots.

    Still trying. We shrimp the inner size a little, the drilling will be done today, we'll see. if it doesn't work, we then go to 25.4 or 26mm.

    25mm outer dia works very fine.

    I got Rey`s proto type in hand, and here are a few pictures:


    next to a Convoy S2+ which inherits the same threading inside the head, so the pills are interchangeable.


    Next to a Sinner`s 18350





    Some things will be different on the actual production type.

    Rey has been taking orders for over a month now. PP is in seventh paragraph of OP.

    Given that they are in production as we speak, delivery should/could be imminent. As of a week ago Rey mentioned shipping by the end-of-month. To be realistic, a project like this could probably experience glitches at any moment.....

    Edit: They are now shipping

    Received it yesterday. Anodized and stone washed. TIR with Xpg2. 10 trits installed. The body was too tight to take protected Panasonic 18650. The tail switch was a bit tricky to use and still figuring how to avoid jamming to the housing. The Triple Nichia 219 from Rey was not working, hopefully will receive another one from Rey next week.

    It was fun to DIY. The quality was quite good. Suggestion to Rey are improvement to tail switch design (compatibility with Mcclicky) and the body to take larger( fat) protected 18650 cell.

    Also tailcap bolts need to be drilled properly (ie, around the light, not straight into it). I have one built, overall, pretty happy, great price and awesome with 10 trits.

    Not perfect but very good value.

    BTW, great job on the finishing! Care to share any details on how you did it?

    Thank you

    i did the anodizing using Coca Cola as the media and set the voltage to about 45V. It took around 3-4 minutes to get the desired color. Then I put it into homemade rocks/screws tumbler for an hour and a half. It's simple and fun to have it customized.

    What was the tumbler? What did you use for the 45v?

    The stone wash media and tumbler
    The green cap plastic bottle is the tumbler I using. All those screws and marbles were used for the action. I need to attach the tumbler to a motor and set the correct rotation speed for the action - the anodizing reference I am using


    The setup for anodizing. I tested it with my Atwood keyton.

    A bit of update : the 3 x Nichia 219 Rey sent was in series instead of parallel. Rey told me to correct it by soldering here and there ( which was ok and fun for me ). Now the personalized flashlight was finally ready for EDC tmr
    The one I received in series connection
    Rey talked me down how to change it. Not easy for my shaking hands


    My EDC . It is driven by 2A driver. So I bet heat won't be a big issue.

    Nice build.

    The Reylight is very special indeed. It's a terrific design - easily customized to the owners taste. Lots of titanium goodness for the money.

    It's not magic - I just anodized it to blue then stone washed it. So the blue colored groove area will stay and the exposed area will be stone washed.
