    my first try just to get the feel of it (at the time I had never used a bottom button so I needed to give it a try
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    as simple as it could get[​IMG]

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    made the first button
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I managed to make a mech switch for it today
    It works ok but a little stiff I just used one of the extra springs that I got in my second zmax bottom cap after ruining 2 of my kids toys trying to take out their spring

    the holder

    I've now changed the format from a 18490 to 18650, made the walnut sleve and I'm getting closer to the final product!

    here is the wooden tube with the exposed switch

    my idea here is to trim a few mm from the sides and make a stainless sleeve to get rid of the wooble
    [​IMG]
    and this sleeve will also function as a safety switch
    here is the sleeve in unlocked position
    [​IMG]
    and locked

    this modding thing is much easier that I thought!!

    don't worry I still have to drill some vent holes
