Use universal threading, and

just screw all the parts together after soldering up!

Just THINK about it for me...

im really only worried about fitting different batts. all i would want is a side clickie with interchangeable batt compartments so i can switch to different batts if i want to.

Default Re: I've finally made a Complete host!

Well, Its pretty much done except for some more polishing.

I finished the battery barrel, the button, and the driver holder today.



























Picture overload! Well, I guess this is the multimedia section

I milled out a driver and switch holder, its designed to let you just slide everything in to place nice and neat, no messing with getting stuff centered and in the right place.

The button still has a little "tag" on the back of it from where it was cut off a bar, I am going to sell these with the switch included and that little nub will be trimmed to fit that switch. I am also going to sell them without the switch so you can add your own, then I will leave the tag so you can trim it to fit your button perfectly.

It only holds one 18650 right now but I am planning more "swappable" parts for other battery types.

This is just a light polish, there are still a few imperfections that need worked out a little. It takes longer for me to polish them than it does to make them

Now I need to start the naming thread, because I have absolutely no idea what to call it

If anyone wants one now, as in shipped tomorrow or Saturday send me a PM. It will be functional but it won't be polished, it will look like the one in the first pictures.

I'll take one! But I want to wait for a polished one...

Will the switch be a clicky on/off? Not momentary correct?

Sending PM...

We have these types of machines at work. We make bombs with them. There's over 100 of these at work! All different types.

That is the same thing, but the one I use has a tail spindle to swap parts from one side to the other to do work on both sides in one cycle.

Here is it making a square heatsink I also have for sale

Aw, I've only got a measly three and a half (the live tooling on one is broken!)

The darn spammer bumped this back to life, I found a few problems after sending this host out for testing so I decided to take it back to the drawing board. I've got plans for a similar host that I'll start on pretty soon now that the grooves are almost done!
