    Finally finished!! 3 x XR-E from Cutter

    Hi All,

    Just thought to share my recent success , this project has been chugging along fairly slowly for a year (or at least it feels like it!) so here it is:

    3 R2 XR-E's on MR11 pcb
    700mA buckpuck - with a switch that selects full, half, off
    Narrow optic
    Hammond Manufacturing case
    Lupine mount
    Switchcraft connector

    but I didn't plan well enough , my brake and gear cables get in the way so onto the next build

    thanks to all who helped, and will help in the future, top forum guys!!

    Nice job!

    If I were you, I would just change the housing to solve your problem, no need to build a new lamp.

    actually, that leads me to ask - if you epoxy or arctic alumina everything together, how do you go about taking it apart?

    Actually I've had to gut finished lights before(blown LEDs) and once you stop crying and can see what you're doing its ok.
    I'd sell that one(looks really tidy) and start afresh.

    Yeah, I am thinkin on selling my experimental but not so bad looking and functional lights also. Just not enough motivation to bother to sell

    I mean I don't need these:





    But I am lazy to sell them

    while I am also lazy about selling it, I'm more "I dont want to rip apart what took me a year to finish" so I'll probably sell it eventually..

    however I'll use it for a bit to work out how powerful lumen-wise my future lights should be -- see, positive spin on everything

    If you don't need them, but are too lazy to sell them - I know where you can ship them.
