You should PM a few of the machinists, for example electricplasma, maybe lifetime.

ASP hilts from SaberForge can be used with 26650 batteries, but lightsaber builds are a notch above your typical builds, in both cost and difficulty. So if I were you I'd ask one of the LPF machinists first as Crazlaser recommended. :D

Can it work with one of DTR's 6W NUBM44 450nm 25mm Copper Laser Module W/Blackbuck Laser Driver ?

That'll most likely be for a 12mm module. But it's still a big chunk of copper either way. If you didn't use the copper pill that's already in that MX900 host, you can make one of the 25mm ones work. Although I don't know how much modification that'd require.

I was going to say Maglite's with the C cells, but Lifetime's build is as good as it gets to plug an play with just the 12mm module swap.
If you already have DTR's 25mm module just hold on to it as you will sure use it soon..

Hi
As said you won't need that 25mm sink with my hosts. The sink I make
With the XM900 or the Mag light are more mass than the 25. But that's up to you. DTR has some awesome stuff

The lens
Screws
Into the 12mm module and
Then a focus knob screws
Onto the lens . Now you solder two wire and heat shrink tubing.!now slide the 12mm module into the heat sink and tighten the set screw. Done

Hi,
The XM900 host that i sell with heat sink and focus knob take 2-26650 batteries and it comes with a plastic sleeve to reduce the inside diameter on the battery tube to take 2-18560's as well. I can machine a sink and knob in Aluminum or copper . copper will be a little higher because of the cost of material and labor. I posted a ic of the one in copper but you can also choose Aluminum to ..it will come prewired so all you do is add your driver and diode and lens.

Well I def have to add a over 1 watt green laser to my laser collection I've started, So after I finish the DTR 6W NUBM44 450nm 25mm Copper Laser Module / green monster host the next one up will be one of your XM900 hosts so I can use my IMR 26650 batteries....

I use the MX-900 when you can find them, they have a nice springboard that you can repurpose, or you can toss it and make your own and get 3 x 26650's into the mx-900 without searching for the hard to find extensions.






---Both hold 3 x 26650's----
