    Regina and XPG

    Are there any specific XP-G boards I need to match up to the Regina reflectors. There are a bunch of different stars/boards out there and I'm just wondering. Thanks..

    You have to pull the tabs off no matter what from what I've seen. They don't seem to match up to any pcb that is readily available. If you grab a 14mm or larger pcb then you don't have to worry about cutting a channel for your wires.

    This is the only board I've found that matches up with the locating pins on the Regina:

    Anyone know where to buy boards in the U.S. even if they don't match the locating pins? 14mm would be best but might take whatever.

    Just got two XP-G 20mm stars and some other stuff. Only took a few days and my order was correct. No problems.

    I just cut the legs off the Regina and very carefully glued it on.

    Or carefully drill a 20 mm star to suit with a 1.5 mm drill

    I've never messed with the boards before....Would it be possible to shave the INDUS star board down to 14mm or would that ruin the electrical contacts? Sorry for the stupid questions.
    I do like the idea of drilling your own holes...That's something I can manage!!

    I'm trying to see the benefit in this compared to the time it would take to carefully measure and drill holes to directly center the reflector over the LED?

    The benefit was purely for the customer ,
    carefully measure once and make a little Jig so I could do the other 200 I was supplying as a little kit to folks to do a hammond box light .




    but now I have the jig it is easy .

    Just cut the frickin legs off your Reginas, and glue them to the stars.
    And don't bother with 10 or 14 mm stars - 20 mm is our choice

    The issue of fitting to reginas to the stars is solved...My problem is that I only have 15.8mm of room to fit a 20mm star in....That's why I was looking for the smaller boards or wondering if I could shave the 20mm stars down somehow.

    You can shave the board down to the desired size and use the contacts on the led, but you would have to make grooves for the wires in the bottom of the reflector an make sure the star doesn't short via housing.
