Hi,
Hope you enjoy this copper Pen it takes 1-10440/ Don't mind my oily finger prints. Just hard to keep my hands clean enough when I'm on the lathe. A PIA to work with but I'm a glutton for punishment lol... Enjoy folks :yh:

Oh man! That looks soooo sharp. Very clean looking. :gj:

I'm guessing two 10440 or 14500's ?
The copper and the green make a really good contrast.

Hi BM,
Thank You so much, just thought it was a nice touch from the norm. Yes 10440 cells. using new switches that will do 2-cells. Thinking a M140 with the new switches, Haven't decided yet. Clues anyone open to suggestions .. Feel Free ....... maybe some 14500 pens .

If I said I didn't want one I would be lying~~~~
Haaa, that was my first thought also. Such a nice looking host. Holds two 10440's, now I'm really biting my tongue.

Did you use one of the 502nm to 503nm diodes it it? It hold a single 10440, right? Love the host. Very nice and being copper it's going to work better than aluminum for heat dissipation. :yh:

Hi GSS,
Your welcome buddy, the diameter is a little over 1/2" i try to keep them slim by turning them down. But not far enough to effect heat dispersion ..
Just ordered some brass , thinking about a brass pen with a copper core pressed in , maybe some 14500 pens 1&2 cell.
@ 3D,
Thank you for the compliment ..

Rich:)
