Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

Yes! :)

My supplier has ordered them and will be stocking them for me. So they are about 4 or 5 days away at this point...

But I happen to have 3 chrome Leadlights on hand. These are labeled <1mW reds. They are new and in working order. Batteries not included. But they go in case positive for these. (positive end toward tail cap)

I will sell these for $20 each plus $3 dollars shipping.

Shipping out of the U.S. will be the same price. But there will be no signature confirmation. (Out of U.S. buyer assumes responsibility at that price) Should not be a problem though... (I would mark the package as a gift, with a description of 'LED Pen Light' with a low value of $10)

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

Nice, just doing a little measurement with a AixiZ module and one of those black 'holster' things that I got from my 'other' laser pointer (that holds the board with the switch), 42mm is absolutely perfect!  

I must be missing something Jay, cause I know you really don't think this is good for a beginner, yet it seems so simple.    I just solder the + from the rkcstr driver to the case pin on the diode, close up the module that now only has the black - wire coming out, fit the board in the 'holster' with the switch, solder the black - to the output side of the switch, then glue the black holster thing to the back of the AixiZ module.  Then just shove it in the pen until the buttons line up.  (and the spring mounted too, but that is easy).  

I dunno...I must be missing something? Either way I take the challenge! When the time comes, I will post here with my failure or sucess...hopefully it's the latter of the two :)

Guide for those interested, I found it very helpful. Gives a decent illustration of how to load a pen with a rkcstr driver and PHR.

Well, I guess you have to define 'easy'. Or define 'beginner'...

But all I meant, was to warn that they are a 'small' build. And that small usually means more difficult!

Yes, the are easy after you have some basic building skills...

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

The only thing I'm going to have to learn how to do is messing with the PCB board. Although luckily I have a driver+switch from another laser build that I can use. I just bypass the driver and use the switch only and it mounts into the holster perfectly (same holster it was in). Although I'm sure the blank PCB board is easy to tinker with if and when I want to do more than one pen build.

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

You are correct...

They are not to bad at all, just small though.

One of the hard things with the Leadlights, was getting it apart. But these are all in pieces and brand new. So much easier than modifying a Leadlight...

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

I only received the exact number of other parts as I did Pen barrels, including the count on the buttons...

I can ask my supplier if he has a few extra on my next order.

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

I have not, because I already have about 4 custom Leadlight builds! ;D

But I just checked the measurements and made sure the AixiZ modules fit nice and stuff so that I could offer these nice new hosts for others if they want them. :)

Hey jayrob, would you be willing to sell me the switches without the host? I have an empty leadlight case I want to use for a bluray build, but I'm missing a switch and pcb.

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

I have switches, but not extra PCB material...

Buy any of my kits or even a heatsink and just remind me about the little momentary switch and I will toss one in for you at no charge! :)

Re: FS: New Pen Host Kits! All Parts Included - Ni

Hey Jay, how useful would it be to make a exterior heatsink for one of these pens? Would it actually work?
