Arrow [Titan's Fist] Active/TEC cooled Massive Mag-lite (pic heavy)

My most comprehensive build to date using the 9mm 445nm diode with a circular 15W TEC and a cooling fan. I give you.....


Titan's Fist



The biggest hurdle to a TEC build is the wire path, well to me anyways so I sourced two 26mm pielters with a 10mm center for a great price. Once I received them I put together a mock sink to see if it was even worth the effort and man 15W Qmax I think dose the job nicely

It all started like this:


Once I had the design in my mind I drew it all out on paper then I used some of the ideas I had left over from the firefarter build.
