Flamingpyro (Jeff) made me a custom focus adapter to work with my XL100 445.

I Pm'd him a 3D rendering that I made in Inventor and he worked his lathey magic ;) From round bar stock to custom focus piece :)

And He also inlayed 6 Trits :D 3 blue trits surrounding the aperture and 3 red inlayed around the OD of the adapter.

The pictures I took were on my camera phone and so I could not get a nice shot in the dark where it would show they glowing but it is makes a nice glow :)

Couldn't be happier with the way it turned out! Thanks Jeff :beer:

Heres the drawing he had to work from and the final result is down below ;)

That is pretty nice.....Scratch that that is very nice, however pics or you don't have trits, you just have pretty glass beads in it. (J\K) :na:

lol there not beads! They're pretty pieces of rice ;)

It is a nice nice piece of machine work :) the piece looks a little rough from the machine marks in the pictures but the finish is nice just not mirror polished.

It would take me awhile to polish out those heavy cut marks :whistle:

You're right about the section thing, I wasn't sure If needed to put it in multimedia just to show the pictures or reviews...

Any mods that need to move to apprpriate section please feel free ;)

lol yeah I thought your were talking about the fins :) Yeah, if I asked him he probably would have put a good polish to it.

That is epic ... and personally I like the machine marks ... plus they hide the inevitable scratches better than polished stuff. :)

Some people prefer a rough look instead of the easily scratched and fingerprint prone polished finish

Thanks, I got it at home depot along with her sister the XL50, which still is a flashlight. Although I got mine to lase it is a rather tough host to work with. I had to completely rebuild mine from the heatsink to the tailswitch. So all that is really left is in fact the shell of the flashlight ;)

I like the machine marks, most of the builds that I machine myself I leave the natural turned finish, and you dont have wipe fingerprints of of it evrytime its touched.

I will say though there is no replacement for a top notch mirror finish ;)

I agree. I am a big fan of the rough metal look over the polished finsih that seems to be so popular lately...

Awesome laser btw! Flaminpyro has some serious machining skills:D
