    Question about triple cuter kit

    here is the image:



    Are the legs of the optics a little bit longer then needed? I don't know wheather the optics should be sitting tight on the leds or not. If it should be sitting tight then I need to cut a little off from the legs.

    BTW, Cutter was really fast: from Australia to Germany it took only several days (odered 1st june, sent 5th june, received 9th june) via usual airmail.

    I assumed that MCPCBs are all different thicknesses and the legs aren't for height, so I trimmed mine.

    Yes, when they have the bits in stock Cutter are fast.

    Thanks. What tool did you use for trimming? The plastic looks to me fragile.

    I didn't even think about the length, bummer. Not sure I can get the thing back apart to trim them. I would use 220 grit sandpaper very carefully.

    Tell me if you get that driver to work, mine is putting about 1A through the led. Actually, it seems to overheat and shut down now. I figured it was cheap and I couldn't lose, I was wrong.

    It looks like you have enough stuff there to build several nice lights, or one freaky quad MC-E / penta XP-E franken-light

    As for trimming the legs on the optic, I would get some sandpaper and a piece of wood that you can wrap it around (or tape the sandpaper to a flat surface like a table), then sand the legs level with the star. Would not be a bad idea to tape up the parts of the optic you want to stay free of the dust from sanding though.

    I already have several different drivers, I didn't want that one to buy, I just wanted a 20mm tripple leds/optics/board, unfortunately there was the only one with the driver. I will try to use that driver thou

    That would be The Light

    I have a dremel-like tool, but a very cheap one. I don't like to use it, but here may be the case. Thanks

    It appears in the batch of these drivers we got some that had issues, we are trying to get these reworked, can you please return your driver and we will send a replacement
    Cheers
