2) A140 diode
3) SXD set to 1.6A bridged to second range
4) G2 Lens
5) 2- Efest 26500 cells = C size

Thank you GSS for picking my brain once again Pal :)

Good job looks like it is coming together! Should be a pretty good 445 build as the heatsink looks like a good size.

Hi,
This sink should handle a 445/9mm 7875 nicely and a little more . i tested it and it remains cool the whole time of the test.here are some other pics of the build

Hi Pman,
its a prototype so and its only an A140, I been looking at a lathe myself to make heat sinks all i need is a small one 7 x 12 with a 3 inch chuck to do most of what we do here . There a Grizzly at harbor freight for around 500 bucks . If peter get some time i asked him to ship me 4 more hosts . I want to make him one with an 06 but i need to sink the SXD and i don't have room in the sink . I'm going to a machine shop tomorrow and see if they can do a little job on the 4 AL pieces i got today. Just hoping they don't want my first born for payment, if so i'll wait for my lathe

Everyone who donates mr and rich 50 bucks each go buy us both a mini lathe gets a free host build lol jk wouldn't that be nice though!

I've been looking at that lathe for some time and there is so many things I could use it for... but I'd have to find a workstation first as my garage is full with my snapon tool box drill press and hydraulic press and other tools and toys... wish I had a 2 or 3 car.


I'm interested in this build and curious to know what it will cost us for one of these in total?

Nice job Lifetime, brings back old memories! :beer:
When I first looked at your pics of that host, I could have swore that you built that in the same host as I used for my first build, "Ole Blue"; same color, same side switch, similar style. Deja vu!

That would be nice to show the setup on the sinks and i'm sure members would agree the shop you found did a really nice job.
