    The ID averages out to 28mm (***EDIT: Correction. ID ~26.3mm. Old one was 28mm)

    The newer mags have an ID diameter of ~26.3mm. These are the ones with the "C" in front of the serial #, and has the "maghead" insignia on the swith boot. Also the switch assembly slides out from the bottom and doesn't have the retaining ring.

    I say forget about mags..how bout a coleman ?

    Hmmm Y2Kirk1028
    26.3mm (!!). That is small. I'll check again with my Cs.

    Brinkmann Nexstar 2C? That's an option... how many people has that?

    Coleman is also an option... again, what is the usage on that?

    hotlips:

    I guess you took my advice in the other thread to heart and decided to make the diameter 28 for a nice tight fit (REAL tight) in a 26.3 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Seriously, though, is the fit intended to be tight enough that it will stay in w/o epoxy?

    Either way, I'm registering my interest for at least two.

    Thanks.

    Please check your IDs of your flashlight bodies. The old ones are 28mm ID and new ones (with the Cat imprint on the switch, "C" in front of the serial number and no o-ring inside the head) have an ID of ~26.3. The run I will be doing will be for the new ones, ie the Hotlips-C OD that fits inside the mouth will be ~26.3mm.

    offering both sizes would mean a greatly increased manufacturing cost [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    StoneDog: PM sent.

    Snakebite: Excellent idea. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] How about the Hotlips-C have the 26.3mm diam. The sleeve (hollow cylinder) have an ID of 26.3 but OD of 28.1mm. To use, epoxy the two together for a larger ID OAC or use the Hotlips-C as is for a newer OAC? Again this is a numbers game. How many sleeves to make? From the numbers above, it looks like this whole project (Hotlips-C) is unlikely to get off the ground. I'll wait till the 8th and evaluate then [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Y2Kirk1028: The sleeve idea will solve the 2 size issue.

    Roth: Very true.

    I am interested in 2 of the c size. I bought a 2c cell Mag light 2 days ago at Home Depot in Houston, TX, and the inner diameter at the top of the light is 28.13cm. The serial number is 24839490.

    Like my D model alot. I'd be in for 2 of the C size. (looks like I'd need one sleeve--for an older larger unit, and one of the 26mm)

    Thanks for the interest so far. If you have pre-ordered, please edit your post and indicate what diameter your OAC is... so I can determine if a sleeve is needed. It is either 28mm or 26.3mm.

    Any other sizes coming from Ontario? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon23.gif[/img] Get it right!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    By Preorder, do you mean that we should pay now? How much each? How do we pay?

    Thanks,

    John

    John, no need to pay. The project may not get off the ground due to numbers. Please just edit your post and tell me whether you want the Hotlips-C and/or Hotlips-C with Sleeve. This will tell me how many Sleeves I need to get made (if at all)

    For everyone:
    Old C bodies have an ID of 28mm. Serial number does not start with "C" and no insignia on the switch button.
    New C bodies have an ID of 26.2mm. Serial number starts with "C" and has the insignia on the switch button.
