    Besides using the boiling water trick Steve mentioned in the previous thread, I also couldn't quite get a grip on the fin despite using a towel and rubber gloves, etc. What did the trick for me was I used a bit of old motorcycle grip which snugged up around the fins perfectly and off she went in one twist after coming out of the boiling water.

    After reading how some are having trouble getting the fins off, I am going to attempt it tonight to make sure I want to continue with the order.

    Don't let that stop you, it was relatively easy once i had some purchase grip. Total time with experimenting different grips took about 5 minutes tops. Anything rubber around the fins to provide traction and the boiling water to break the thread bond they used...

    Are the magnets still as strong as they were to start with after the boiling water? I understood that these types of magnets start to demagnetise at temperatures below boiling point? The V10R will still work but becomes more susceptible to external magnetic fields, such as the steel clip that can be installed on a V10R.

    I've never heard of such a thing. I'll have to look it up. FWIW, after reassembly, my adjustment ring works just fine. I'm putting it up next to my monitor/speakers and though shielded, (they do affect a compass that I have) the light still works like normal...

    Sorry, I'm still getting delays due to the 18650 thrower.
    Kinda threw the fin mod in while we waited.

    Thank you for posting that.
    I've also been told that double sided tape works as well.

    Thats very cool!

    Somehow I've managed to de-magnetise many of my magnets though including the V10R ones....

    Paypal Sent. Im currently overseas on holidays, so internet connections are limited to a couples times a week, maybe a few minutes at a time as I pass wifi hotspots.

    Please hold my shipment as I will not be at home for the next couple weeks. Im hoping to be able to add to my order in the near future anyway

    I use high powered 3 phase brushless motors all the time in RC racing and temps regularly reach around 120 degrees C and the magnets do not get demagged .

    A few of questions about the boiling water trick. Does the whole light goes in or just the end to be heated up? How long does one leave the light in the boiling water and do you leave the pot on the stove while heating up the light?

    Since the trits are to be user-installed, I am curious if we will need to epoxy them in ourselves? Or are they so secure in the fins that they will not rattle?

    They should be held in place without the need to glue them in. Steve says you should be able to change according to your mood...

    No, just up to the control ring and leave it in there for 15 seconds.
    If you still can't get it loose, dunk it in there for another 15.
    No need to keep the pot boiling, there is more than enough thermal mass in an average pot of water to heat up the head.

    They won't rattle, no glue needed.

    Trit choices! Please let me know ASAP. Ordering this Friday at noon GMT +8.

    Neo magnets have a curie temperature of 300+ degrees C, thats the temperature at which the magnet will be completely demagnetised, however there is also a Maximum operating temperature above which irreversible de-magnetisation begins to occur. It is stated as a temperature starting from 80 Deg C for some grades of Neo magnets.


    Source: http://www.kjmagnetics.com/blog.asp?...dymium-magnets retrieved on the 9/2/2012
    I know for sure that my magnets have been slightly demagnetised below boiling temperatures. I have also noticeably de-magnetised the magnets in my RC brushless motors from hovering my planes and having reduced airflow. Its an out runner with magnets on the outside of the coil and receiving more cooling than the coils themselves. There is a noticeable reduction in the cogging of the motor after hovering on one of the warmer days, when compared to another motor that has not yet been used.

    Boiling water should be pretty safe for the V10R, but I would keep it in mind. I used a flame on my first V10R, and I measured internal temperatures with a K probe of just over 100deg C. I did de-magnetise the magnets in my V10R noticeably. It is possible that transient temperatures have increased beyond 100 deg C for the ring as I was measuring against the metal where the LED is mounted.

    I finally got my V10R T6 apart thanks to okwchin’s guidance. I followed his technique, http://budgetlightforum.com/node/5390 and with great effort I got it apart. I decided to try it out on my V10R T6 which is my work EDC so if I should buger it up it’s no big deal. I used some other methods including boiling water, duct tape and rubber grips along with a few bugers, I managed to get it started but it locked up and would not budge. So I went to okwchin’s setup and I worked the two halves back and forth and was able to finally free up the locking compound and unscrew the cooling fins. Now I’m ready for my V10R Ti. Thanks okwchin!

    Good to hear you got it moving, unfortunately for me the hot water doesn't work for me, I seem to have had mine pretty well loaded with thread locker.

    Yeah, hot water didn't do too much for me either. The threads on my light were loaded up with thread locker as well. I just got some new rubber bands and I'm working up the nerve to tackle my Ti.
