Thread: Graflex ANH 2-Cell Hilt

  1. #1

    Default Graflex ANH 2-Cell Hilt

    I just picked up a Graflex 2-cell (complete, everything vintage) for dirt cheap today and thought, "Why not make something out of this?" since I have a spare Nano Biscotte board lying around, so here it goes.

    But first, some questions regarding the hilt. How do I get a replacement 3-cell battery holder and/or the dimensions for it, because if I can't find one for sale then I'll just make it myself (or have someone manufacture it for me). I know a good bit of the people here have genuine 3-cell builds and I hope you can help me out.

    Dimensions for the 3 cell hilt are:

    4.7" long
    1.5" diameter

    Make sure you use stainless steel for the tubing. if you do make your own, you can buy the pipe for cheap then have a welder cap the end for you. I used thicker material for the endcap so that when I drilled and tapped for my D ring I had plenty of thread engagement.

    I appreciate the help-I plan on just loctite-ing/JB-Welding the D-ring screws, so I don't think the thread engagement will be much of an issue (unless someone else knows better). And as for the TCSS Graflex adapter-I assume all the Graflex hilt screws, greeblies and everything else have corresponding holes in the adapter and there's room to wire the red button as an activation switch?

    If you want to use the red button below the bunny ears for the activation switch, the regular CSS push on/push off button will not fit. You'll need to get the pololu switch. Do a search on the forum here an you'll find plenty of info. here's where you buy them:

    the TCSS adapter is awesome and works great. Mine fit super tight just like I wanted. You can use the lens on the front as a blade locking screw but you'll need to drill out the hole on adapter.

    I just finished my graflex not long ago. It isn't super fancy, but turned out good I think. Here's the thread:
