    Wink2 NEOCA WOOD - 3/1/2006 - Closed, THANKS!

    Finally after months and months of delays, problems and more delays Im happy to post this thread.



    Details:

    UCL protecting lens, IMS17 reflector, lux3 bin TW0J emitter, Badboy Negtgen 750mA, one Quebracho Wood Skin and one Plastic semitransparent Skin, material is phosphorous brass, no CR123 battery included.

    Body is not knurled, I have some knurled bodies, but Im not happy with the knurling, if you can live with some imperfections these are also ready to go.



    [added 1/12/06)]

    I felt creative and painted some plastic skins on the inside:


    Marbled effect can be obtained by using sandpaper on the inside and then painting with a marker.

    Extra skins are available now:
    There are available 10 sets of three skins containing, one extra quebracho skin, one extra plastic skin and one slightly dark wood skin. At the moment I will not sell individual skins.



    FAQ in progress:
    - The weight of the unit is 110grams
    - The Nickel plated ALU bodies are delayed
    - The knurled bodies have minor cosmetic imperfections.
    - Beam is the same as the Neoca BL, but brighter, due to the increased current.
    - Light is one stage, twisty
    - Paypal cash or credit card are OK
    - Other payment methods aren't available
    - Dimensions: diameter 26mm (1.02") x 62mm (2.45")


    [ADDED 1/13/2006]

    This is how Quebracho tans when exposed to light, it takes around 6 months from light to dark.


    [ADDED 3/2/2006]
    Thanks to all the people that bought a NEOCA Wood.

    As I did in my previous build, I will offer a coupon in gratitude for your support (will post list here soon)

    There are a few units left, and these will be sold via www.neoca.com.ar or you can contact me via PM here.

    Price from now on will be slightly higher, I may open a new sales thread in the future.

    Again, Thanks


    Pablo

    FINALY!!! Muuuuuuussssst ressssiiissst........

    They look great!! So they are available with or without knurling? [edit]oops I see that the knurled ones are delayed.
    I looked all over for the weight of the brass ones. any stats?
    [edit]Maybe the alluminium one is for me but the brass looks just right for color. Any anodized alumium ones on the horizon?
    How about the beam? is it like my BL just brighter? I like the decision to go 750mA

    For those of us who don't own any of the torches it's been compared to, what are the dimensions?

    PEU,

    I noticed it said a refund for shipping would be sent back for skin set if you were ordering with flashlight. I sent PayPal for skins but there was no message box to say I was adding it to my Flashlight order from last night.
    Thanks,
    Ken

    Hi Fringe, no need to ask for darker colors, quebracho tans with sunlight, so if you leave it in an illuminated shelf while not in use it will tan in less than 2 months, tomorrow I will post a picture with different levels of tanning.

    I added an extra quebracho skin in the skin set for this very purpose, so the ones who purchase it can have a before and after sunbath skin

    All paid units will ship tomorrow afternoon.


    Thanks

    Cones: I updated the 1st post with buttons for coupon holders

    Frenchy: a pic is worth a thousand words:



    The answer with letters is: in a couple of minutes

    Each unit and skin is protected by a styrofoam pipe and the envelope is bubble padded. The skins also have styrofoam pellets on the inside.

    Does it tan with sunlight, use or simply existing?

    Oh man, the way the wood evolves is so wonderful! It is like a fine wine! This light I plan to give to my father for his birthday, but I am starting to feel like I will get another after seeing this in person. I mean, you have to have a "dress" light when you are looking great in a suite and tie!

    AWESOME!

    SolarFlare, could I have your voucher? I'm crossing my fingers that Mr. LowWorm will want this light since it's from Argentina (he lived there for a couple of years).

    EDIT: Pablo, maybe I missed it, but is there a beamshot of this nice light?
