Bought this today at a auto parts store, Advance Auto (formerly known as Discount Auto)

I liked it's looks and large head size.
Very good work on this one --- Note in pics. below, the threaded ring that holds the diode "pill" down. O-ring sealed, sealed tail clicky.
I'm going to machine a solid brass heatsink to extend all the way down the head (nearly 1-3/4" X 1-1/8 )
Cut the hole in the middle .0001 under the OD size of a Aixis and apply heat-sinking compound, then press fit the Aixis into it.
I estimate about 10 ounces of heatsink.
I am going to run a LOC at 450mA w/glass lens. Going to need a good heatsink.:whistle:

Anyway, if you have a Advance auto store near you ( I know they are in most of the south)
Go pick one of these babys up $7.99-- Autocraft Model# AC902
Or look on line,I am sure somebody else sells them.

Are you machining your own heatsink?
Yes, I'll be machining the heatsink. I have some 1-1/4" brass stock.
The stock weighs 10 ounces per inch. I figured up, I'll probaly end up with a heatsink that weighs 10 to 12 ounces.

I'll have to melt some lead in the tailcap to keep it balanced.LOL:crackup:
