Thread: Aspheric TinyDC

  1. #1

    Default Aspheric TinyDC

    completed an Aspheric Tiny DC. Has a beam similar to a McGizmo Sundrop, but bigger...
    Used a Qlite 3.04A driver, and an XM-L2 from Mountain Electronics. drilled a blank pill for wires coming through away from center so the led had a place to set...
    got an Aspheric Lens from ThorLabs, and used a blue o-ring I had laying around as the gasket.
    For the spacer between the pill and the lens, I used a small rubber leg/cane tip trimmed to be slightly taller than the LED.

    Sundrop left, TinyDC Right.

    Awesome! I love it when guys modify stuff. If you're tempted to give something like this a try yourself, I'll help in anyway I can.

    So cool! I'm impressed with outcome but even more so with what it took to accomplish it... from idea to completion. Well played.

    Put that light in the WTS and watch me elbow my way to the front. I'll step on a kid

    Build #2 coming up. This time with a tumbled finish Aluminum DC1. need to look into some things yet. the first one wouldn't really head stand as the lens protruded a bit from the front.

    Cool. Initially I thought this was adjustable between flood and throw, but these mods are set for flood only, correct?

    correct. "Focused Flood" (to differentiate from a Mule)

    Yes is certainly does that. I've always enjoyed a clearly defined circle of light.
