I've seen that kind of holder before and always wondered how hard it would be to made them. And you are just doing that.. nice. Laughing out loud

Its "Fivemega" design, right?

Similar in the fact that it's for 4/8/12 AA NiMHs.

Other than that, it's not similar at all. The ones made by Five Mega and (I think modcod), are well made machined holders, that have evolved into the best holders in the market. Holders that will last for years and can be counted on to work.

The ones I THINK I'm going to make are hack jobs and I doubt I ever will really get them made. The first problem is that the holder needs to be made of plastic rod stock that is a larger diameter than is necessary, so it can be turned down to the exact diameter needed, in order to have some "meat" left in it.

I do not have a lathe, so I am trying to use plastic rod stock that is a smaller diameter than the maglite, so it will not have near enough "meat" and will be inherently weak.

Five Mega also has the best design and I cannot/will not copy it completely. I don't feel that is right or fair, so I would have to do it "my way" and for this battery holder, my way is not the right way. I doubt I will ever get them completed. I will make one, but probably just end up putting it on the shelf. My concern is with the end user and I just don't want to sell a weak or wobbly hack job holder to anyone.

Like Don might say, I need more tape and dowels, but that is not something I want to sell to someone. I wouldn't want to sell a bad battery holder that I made. I did that once and I regret it.

What to Look For in a Drill Press | eBay

When purchasing a drill press, there are certain features that are better for certain
projects. Here are some things to look for when buying your own drill press.
http://www.ebay.com/gds/What-to-Look-For-in-a-Drill-Press-/10000000008243860/g.html

I just don't have the bucks to sink into Five Mega holders for maglite builds. Hell if I went to CPF and bought all the stuff for making flashlights "the right way", I couldn't ever sell them. They would be $175+ a piece.

In the long run making "pretty hosts" works out best, then the buyer can build it themselves and they can either "do it right" or "hack job" it. Whichever way they want.

No matter what I will still get use out of the drill press. Every time I want to drill holes in a heat sink or in a maglite body, I will make use of the press, so it's still a good idea.
