    Looking for U.S. source for 14mm base XM-L?

    I'm needing one for a maglight project. would like to order from US source just to cut shipping time.

    Best bin I can find is a T5, 3C tint @ illumination supply. That'll do if I can't find a T6 or U2 somewhere.

    They have a U2 on a 16mm board - but I'm told I cant go wider than 14mm diameter.

    anyone know of anywhere else of a 14mm board - most any tint will do, I'm not dead set on neutral tints.

    Illumination supply have bare XMLs and bare 14mm boards for XMLs. Reflow your own?

    that's what I'd do, piece of cake too. Then you can get your choice of XM-L or even XM-L2 (which he has in U2 1A!).

    I've tried reflowing, and haven't been successful yet. i'd rather not mess with it. I just emailed him though to see if he'd assemble one for sale.

    that's a shame, if you need any tips, just ask. If Craig can't do it, then just pop it in the post to me with enough return postage and I'll do it for you. Only takes a couple of minutes on the stove.

    Now I have to make cell adapters to run a pair of 18650's in series in a 3 cell mag-C body.

    I just emailed him the same question. Answer was no.
    How about a tutorial on reflowing?
    Perhaps in it's own thread,
