    Hi Guys,

    Some good news & some more waiting please.
    I have managed to get all the Raw Da's Etched:

    I am now away from 27th Jan - 5th Feb.
    I have on order P4 XR-E's which will be here my first week back.
    These I will install in the Raw Da's & I must them get them dispatched to all you patient guys who have waited much longer than I anticipated.
    Realistically as I imagine I will come back to a pile of work I want these shipped no later than Feb 19th.
    I apologise for not sticking to today's planed shipping.

    BIG to all for your continued patience.

    I may be wrong, but Rob's prices are in £ Sterling, so the price in $ would change daily depending on the PayPal exchange rate.

    Howdy All
    I am still behind on getting these sent.
    I realize the amount of time you guys have waited for these is embarrassing :Redface:
    I had to take time of the bench last week as some how I have sprained my right ankle!!! It is not mending as fast as I am used to & has slowed me down even further.
    The last planed dispatch date of the 19th is Today & to my disappointment will not happen I do not want to give another date & not stick to it.
    Also I realize all you really want to know is when you'll get your Long awaited Raw Da? This week I am still hobbling around like a gimp & Half Term (Children Of school) will also be a distraction.
    Please bear with me for 2 more weeks. I will commit to the 5th March as the final latest dispatch date.
    I apologies sincerely for taking way to long with this project.
    lessons learnt & Wow time flies....
    to All.

    Bummer on the continued delay. I thought for sure with all these being etched before your vacation that they would surely be on their way by today.

    If Time = Money does it also hold that Continued Patience = Discount? ;-)

    Back to patiently waiting....

    Hey there orb...

    I was wondering if it would be possible to make orbs (or other designs for that matter) out of tungsten carbide. I know tungsten carbide can be machined in wedding rings and things of that sort, so I'm pretty sure the capabilities are there, though not a metallurgy expert.

    A flashlight (a CR123 one ideally, waterproofed/o-ringed too) made out of tungsten carbide would be the uber ultimate EDC. It would be practically impossible to scratch/abuse that thing. Impervious to wear and tear. Ideal for keychain EDC.

    It would be possible, others have done this before. There is something special about a Tungsten LED torch!! If you went up to 123 size cells the weight of such a light would certainly be noticeable.
    No plan to go this route, other ideas to peruse.

    Hmmm dunno about that m8...

    I know of people that have used tungsten... sure... but tungsten carbide is another story alltogether! Tungsten is not THAT hard by itself to machine/handle, as a matter of fact, in its pure form, you can cut it using a hacksaw. However tungsten carbide is *way* harder to deal with. Actually 99.9% of the cutting tools on the CNCs/high-end drillbits/etc themselves are *coated* or have inserts of tungsten carbide in order to be superhard (AFAIK). If I'm not mistaken you need a diamond in order to cut tungsten carbide.

    You can read more on tungsten carbide here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tungsten_carbide

    As far as I know, noone has ever done a flashlight out of Tungsten carbide. However someone out there must have the capabilities to machine it, since it is used for wedding rings etc as a scratch-proof alternative to precious metal, and even titanium.

    One thing is for sure, it would take considerable research to find somewhere that could machine it! I'm on the looking, if I find anything I'll let ya know, if nothing else for the sake of sharing ideas/information.

    PS: As I said I am no metallurgist, so no idea if this is even possible when talking about machining something the size of a flashlight. I was just thinking of all the people who are concerned about damaging their EDC when on a keychain/pocket, and thought of this as a way to counteract that problem.

    If you go to hard, it would then become brittle. A drop or knock may chip rather than dent.
    There always seems to be a trade of some where!!!
