    trimming of Regina for XML, how?

    Hi all

    I am in the process of making a double XML/Regina with a Lflex. There was a thread on trimming the Regina for use with the XML, but I couldn't see clearly how it was done.

    The XML-dome is placed on a small 5x5mm base. This should center a Regina close to perfect, if a 7.1mm hole was drilled in the bottom of the reflector.

    But what about the depth? the Regina has a small rectangular recess in the bottom, supposedly to rest on the XPG.
    Will it mess up the "spot" to drill all the way through, and let the reflector rest on the star?

    I hope to modify the reflectors tomorrow, so don't hold your input back

    I promise to post pictures of the finished light. I have tried to come up with a design, which I haven't seen in here before, even though the innards are fairly standard (CNC )

    Best regards

    Lars

    The recess at the bottom of the Regina isn't for the xpg it's for a rebel. When mounting the Regina on a xpg it should rest against the face of the pcb and the same goes for the xml. Drill through like you intended and it'll work out fine.

    A step drill is the easiest way.

    I've done it both ways - with a drill, by hand in 0.5mm increments up to 7mm, and with a small square modeling file. Both leave the base of the Regina sitting flush to the star, as on the XP-G.
