Default Modding cree T-6 to use C6 HS

The title says it all. Today i took apart a zoomable cree t-6 that i got somewhere on the internets.



Its this flashlight
UltraFire 2500LM 5 Mode Zoomable CREE XML XM L T6 LED Flashlight Torch 18650 604688087058 | eBay

I realized the pill for it was just a little too big for the bottom of a c6 heatsink, but above the lip it perfectly fits the larger portion of the HS. so i busted out my dremmel and grinded for about 20 minutes until the HS would go in snug when vice pressed.

With just a little modification, the c6 HS works surprisingly well

The c6 HS is not pressed all the way in in the pictures, it was a little tricky to get out and i didn't want to scuff the finish more than i already have until i figure out what to put in this.

now for pics!





Threw an old phr-805t module in there to test


for the "dressed down" look


The "zoomable" portion still has full original range of motion


This last photo shows a proof of concept, the lens can be switched out, and the zoom slide stiffened to make the actual lens assembly the focus, utilizing the zoomable.


Thanks for looking!

Hey that's pretty cool. How do you access the set screw to hold in the diode module? Did you do that before pressing it?

that's why i don't have it pressed all the way in the pics, its pretty easy to press back out with a vice though. i was thinking about drilling a hole for the set screw, but you would lose one of the grooves for the 2 o-rings that hold and add resistance to the movement of the slider.
