    Default Ti Rotary ala CRX

    Laissez les bons temps rouler!

    Jetbeam TCR-1 w N219b 4500k 9080 sw45k
    mod with reflector upgrade by CRX:


    beam perfection:


    on my meter, fresh cell initial maximum:
    415 lumens on 16340
    460 lumens on 18350

    beam colors
    sw35, sw45k, Fenix E01


    Titanium TCR-1 empty weight, no clip:


    Aluminium RRT-01 and Eye10 empty weight, no clip:

    As usual CRX went the extra 5 miles beyond the call of duty and put a high polish on the Ti Host, added a spring bypass,


    and glow powder in the tailÖ


    bling!

    Very nice! I love CRX, my TCA is one of my most favorite lights, probably tied for first with my Vega.

    Excellent light there!

    Very nice work. I'd be interested to know what model of reflector he used, and where I can get one.

    Thank you all for sharing my shopping joy.

    I dont know what reflector CRX put in the TCR-1, Im not sure he does either, it was something he had in his parts bin. Some people are researching reflector options for the Jetbeams, nothing conclusive yet.

    fwiw, the control ring on my TCR-1 still has the original grease, and it had become stiff, and hard to turn the dial.

    I added a drop of Nano Oil, and worked it in, and that helped, but it was still stiffer than I wanted, and still had some Titanium gritty spots. The body and head threads were also Titanium Gritty.

    So I took a chance and bought some Monky Spunk. Im not affiliated, just a fan. It worked better than I expected, no more gritty spots, nice smooth buttery dial feel, and the body and head threads no longer squeak and grind, they feel nice and smooth..

    Makes me smile every time I turn the dial.

    Thanks ven

    I agree completely, CRX is an Artiste ;-)

    I love this TCR-1.
    The LED CRX installed is my favorite, the glow he added to the tail works really well, and he did an awesome job polishing the host. He also went beyond the call of duty, by modifying a Kershaw clip to fit the light without interfering with the rotary dial the way the stock clip did.

    I feel very fortunate, in every way, to have had his help modding this light for me.

    Iíll have to have someone look at it, but it doesnít light up at all. Hopefully it can be cleaned up and fixed. Itís not corroded on the contact at all. I want to have a Samsung or Nichia swapped into it.

    both are popular choices
    Im partial to nichia, but tastes differ

    will send you a PM about repair options
