Re: Attach Ir torch to project box

And if it's a more modern torch like the T38, T50, T67 or T75 then this is the mount you need. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2800979 just use the front of the torch, no cutting needed. Then wire direct to the PILL regulator board. or make a dummy battery to connect to the positive spring. but be...

Re: Attach Ir torch to project box

if your torch is a T20 then I have the solution... This is a 3d printed mount for the rear cap. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2800967 This way you still use full torch, battery remains in side the torch and you need a pigtail switch to activate it... cut the switch cable and fit a standard switc...

Re: Fox calling??

On the topic of 17hmr against a fox It's borderline in my opinion. The only sure shot is a close range head shot which drops them stone dead. I have unfortunately hit a fox at 60 yards in his front upper chest and he still ran for the hills, never to be seen again... I wasn't proud of that. So now i...

A cure for video interference from driver

Folks, Not sure if anyone has posted this before... But it might be helpful to some DIY builders. I decided to use a single battery supply to drive my camera/LCD and the IR source. This is because my Foxeer NightWolf camera displays the battery voltage, so its nice to know the voltage level of ALL m...

Re: Toggle switched driver instead of press button

Ah... I found out how the top end brands do it...

It's done with magnetic rotation switching.

So it's no-contact switching between modes, clever eh!
And silent too.

Re: Toggle switched driver instead of press button

Hi Lightmesser, Yes you have it, I want a toggle or rotary switch to set the power , and not the clicky press button which we normally have. I see other top brands like acebeam k70 also have a rotary switch , but I doubt they use resistors or rheostat which waste power as heat . So I conclude there ...

Toggle switched driver instead of press button

The standard pill driver needs an off/on cycle to switch mode. But i was wondering if there is a driver board which can be connected to a 3 or 4 position switch ? It would make it easier to to switch in the field, especially if you can avoid going to high power in order to reach low power mode. Than...
