Keep up the Scientific experiments the pics of all the lights look great!!!
Got any rubber gloves? Plus I don't recognize that little plastic part in the metal. I'm such a newb...sorry-gotta find the original tutorial from BLF
Got all my tips here...but mostly had to scrounge the rest from other resources.
Sorry-but all the ones I've seen had notches-that's weird. I guess those small chinese reproduction companies are unpredictable. Well, if anything you still have a decent light for 5 bucks.
THAT'S WHAT I SAID!
Mine had the little notches, but it actually was a screw it, not friction fit. I would try finding some small nails or pins and gently awling out a hole to stick them in, and use two of those on either side to unscrew.
Agreed. Can't beat a decent light for five bucks. I wouldn't even dream of doing this with a Fenix, Zebralight, Streamlight, Sunwayman, or heaven forbid, an ultra expensive HDS. Definitely love the inexpensive flashlights you can mod, or lose, or break, and not worry about it...just order another one. If you lose a Sipik clone, you can just shrug your shoulders and oh well, no big deal.
Most of them probably use more expensive coatings that wouldn't have quite the same effect anyway. At least that was the case with my Eagletac D25A (I tried to bake the bezel that holds in the lens just to see what happens; didn't do a thing)
hopefully the saik SA9 i have in the mail has a "bakeable coating" and
i´m able to bake most of its parts
I have no idea what that is.
It looks like a more aggressive Sipik. That might be cool to have for army use.
Please update us with your findings. I'm intrigued.
its like the sipik pricewise, some in-hand-pics online show that its bigger and the head looks like a beefier, tactical-crowned version of the c30-head .
to tell the truth i can´t wait to get my hands on it and hopefully bake the green ring to whatever colour comes out
I slapped together a quick video that demonstrates the disassembly process, hope it helps.
Mine didn't come apart anything like that. I had to remove the black bezel first, then unscrew the electronics out, then the sliding part pops off.
And is that a buff you're using as a backdrop?
It can be dissasebled both ways, I just found this one to be easier. Yes that is a buff I am using as a backdrop.
I think a lot of the clones may be different. I've been turned on mine since you posted the video, and I can't get it to unscrew like you're doing it. Your method does seem easier, it just seems that my particular example may not be "equipped" to do it like that.
Like everything else in life, YMMV when it comes to clones of clones in the flashlight world.
Exactly the reason I chose to recommend this particular light! Lol don't want people trying to track me down cuz I broke their Lenslight or McGizmo-given those also arent aluminum.
Very true, these lights aren't exactly a shining beacon of consistency.
See: Your gold Sipik, and everyone else's copper-ish Sipik.
Thanks for effort in making the video. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to work with the one they sent me. Maybe another one may work.
Alright! Nice vid-and thanks for the addition!
My SAIK is here, and AFAICS it is painted (?). Nice light, nonetheless. for baking, i´ll have to wait for my SIPIKS
UPDATE: it was not painted and the heat colouring turned out fine.
the only problem was the electronics part, so i will have to get into LED-modding to replace a DOA LED module and maybe the other electronics, too.
