hey folks, it's been a while since I've been active. i take a peek every now and then.

anyway, some of you may remember a host I had Ehgemus make for me. it's still my favorite. a while back, the threads for the tail cap got messed up. not sure if I misaligned them or what but it's certainly messed up now. it still works, but is held together more from the friction of the ridges than actually being screwed on. every time I take out the batteries, it gets worse and there are more metal shavings.

is there anyone here i could send it to for repair? I'm guessing it might need to have a new tailcap made, I can send the existing one for any useful parts and to serve as a template.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's such a nice host, would be a shame to be unable to restore it

also, just noticed the photobucket B.S. what a rip off

Lame

ummm, I think I'll send it without the head. the head is 2" diameter copper, about 2 1/2" tall, weighs quite a lot. but sure, the handle part and tailcap. thanks for helping

yeah I know. it'll also save me on shipping, the heatsink is like 90% of the weight.

thanks again. I think I sold a 445nm 4W~ish diode to lifetime17 at one point, that thing still kicking?

Rich, I take it you do custom hosts in general? I might be interested in some in the future
