    In my spare time during deployment

    Thanks to all you guys for your ideas and projects. This has inspired me to try building my own milled light housing. Currently deployed - I was fortunate to find some nice guys who taught me the basics of milling and allowed me to use their shop on my off time. Now I have my first machined light housing! Much better than my Citizen Kane clone. It uses a 33.2 MC from Quazzle. I just love the simplicity of those light engines. Being seen here is essential to not becoming pancaked on the road by an armored vehicle or cargo transport.

    Can't wait to start the next one! Enjoy the pics!

    Light looks great and would probably survive a hit by an armored vehicle or cargo transport.

    But the bike and the rider probably wouldn't...

    looks good fujio but see if you can get your hands on some dome head socket drive bolts instead and that will help reduce the overall impression of the size of the light.

    Nice work

    Fijio,
    That's a fine looking light. It's stout. Good job.

    The bolts are the first thing I want to replace. I was limited to what was on hand. Maybe some bolts in stainless would be nice!

    That's what I used in this build, M3 stainless dome head socket drive.

    Next step will be to find some of the same thing but in aluminium to really tweak the build, and probably loose about 5gms

    Keep up the nice work mate

    fujio, I love the look of this light and seeing it next to the laptop touch pad shows that it's quite small.

    Button head bolts might make it lose it's "don't mess with me" looks, not sure if that will be good or bad ( I like industrial )

    Very nice milling too.

    That's some nice milling, but you two should loose some weight

    Maybe some flat head screws countersunk into the plates?
