I've got AixiZ full length threaded lenses available with AixiZ focus ring...

* AixiZ 445 glass lens with AixiZ focus ring - $11
* AixiZ 650 glass lens with AixiZ focus ring - $5

Plus shipping...

(also available are my 405-G-1, and 650-G-1 linked in my signature)

Also, Custom Focus knobs and EzFocus adapters shown below...

There's more than meets the eye to EzFocus adapters...

Fitting it properly, is not only knowing the host size, but it must be fit to the lens being used, depending on how far it sticks out the front. (at focus)

If the heatsink uses an AixiZ module, there is normally room for adjustment by moving the module position and setting it with the set screw.

For these new 445 A130 diodes, if your planning on using the AixiZ 445 lens (new AR coating - 400nm to 460nm), which is the best result for an off the shelf cheap solution. The lens sticks out farther than normal lenses.

I have custom EzFocus adapters specifically for these lenses. That will compensate for the lenses sticking out farther than normal...



For Kryton's, see below: (Custom EzFocus Adapters)



Two types shown here...

First, this smaller 'Custom focus knob' that is fit for the silicone tail cap 'dust caps' we are used to...

It is the same diameter as an AixiZ focus ring. So that you can put a dust cap on it...







This way you can have a nice clean finish if using an AixiZ 445 glass lens with a 445 A130 build... :cool: (so that it doesn't look like it's sticking out the front)

Especially if you have a small build that doesn't have room for module positioning. Or if you have one of my press fit heatsink/modules for the 18650 kit. Then you will want one of these custom focus knobs for sure...

I have some full length thread AixiZ 445 glass lenses coming, so I'm offering:

* AixiZ 445 glass lens with the custom focus knob - $25 plus $3 dollars shipping

* Just the custom focus knob - $15 plus $2 dollars shipping

* Just the AixiZ 445 lens with an AixiZ focus ring - $11 dollars plus $2 dollars shipping





Custom EzFocus Adapter for the AixiZ 445 lens...

This style can be fit for any of my kits that I offer EzFocus adapters for.
Including Kryton's!

If you want my normal EzFocus design custom fit for an AixiZ 445 lens, just let me know when ordering.

Because if it's for an AixiZ 445 lens, then I will thread it deeper as shown here...







Here it is shown with my Stainless Steel 18650 kit...



* $24 dollars plus $3 dollars shipping for this style... (or add $10 dollars to have the AixiZ 445 lens with it)

Looks good. I wish I could afford a 445nm

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob for AixiZ Glass Lenses

Hey Jay, if you drill a smaller hole through the aluminum cylinder (the knurled focus knob) instead of the even reduced aperture hole, could it take out some amount of splash without eating away the main beam?

I did a custom sleeve/retainer for my 405-G-1 and it worked nice. Dave tested it too. See here:

These new EzFocus adapters were designed specifically for the new AixiZ 445 lenses, but I can also fit them for my 405-G-1! :cool:

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob for AixiZ Glass Lenses

Hey there, Jay.
Have you gotten any of the full-threaded 405 lenses in stock yet?
If I could save some trouble ordering from Aixiz and making a special request for the full-threaded lens, it would be nice...
I haven't any more glass Aixiz 405s on hand since I sold them all... Let me know if you would like to part with one or two.
Thanks!

I have (now 100) on back order but they are supposed to get them as of yesterday...

I'll call on Monday...

But I'm only selling them with my custom focus knob shown here, because 50 of them are already spoken for...

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob for AixiZ Glass Lenses

Gotcha.
Too bad I don't have any builds planned... I really like the knurled texture.
I'm sure these will sell well once more of the 445nm builds get going. ;)

Niiiice :D

Jay, would this fit my 445 host? At the risk of sounding dense, is your 405-G-1 lenses also shorter than this Aixiz glass build...?

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob for AixiZ Glass Lenses

The overall length of my 405-G-1 lens assembly is the same as the AixiZ 445, but it sits farther into the module at focus. So it looks shorter at focus. Only because it does not stick out as far...

The AixiZ 405 glass lens on the other hand, sticks out the front at focus. Which is why I came up with this custom Focus Knob idea.

About your custom host with the copper press fit heatsink. Yes, if you wanted to use an AixiZ 405 glass lens (with full length threads) in your build, then this focus knob will have the same look as in this picture:

Assuming I can remove the knob at will (so that maybe someday I can apply it to another, "new & improved" lens), then I'll take one off your hands :beer:

I asked the Professor if he had one laying around, but I take it you're currently the only source in LPF-town, so I don't have to worry about double-ordering the lens (he never replied to that question but I guess he only has your proto-lens, right...?).

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob for AixiZ Glass Lenses

This is just a lens from AixiZ (405 glass), that I made a custom knob for...

So that it hides the way the AixiZ lens sticks out the front. It sticks out the front more than other lenses at focus...

I think you might be thinking about the 'small aperture' sleeve/retainer I sent Dave for a 405-G-1 modification. See here:

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob / or EzFocus Adapter for AixiZ Glass Lenses

Looking nice.

Can you please give the dimension for the EZfocus adaptor ? (diameter)

Re: FS: 445 Custom Focus Knob / or EzFocus Adapter for AixiZ Glass Lenses

The Custom Focus knob is the same O.D. as an AixiZ focus ring...

The EzFocus adapters are custom fit per host. Same O.D. as what ever host it is for.

There are other dimensions to consider for the EzFocus adapters.... (skirt size, depth, etc...)

I need one for this host:

DealExtreme: $12.55 SAIK RC-A2 Cree P2 AA Flashlight (Gray)

Can you do it already or should I get you the measurements ?
