Attention Please Raw Ti Owners.
Due to a mix up with material (Titanium & Stainless Steel) @ the CNC shop. It has just been proven that some of the 40 Raw Ti's that have all been sold are not all Titanium. They were sold as Titanium & have the Raw Ti Logo. It is hard to see any difference between the two.
This is a massive shock to me & still find it very hard to believe how I missed this when assembling them.
The only reason this got investigated was down to Codeman & his quite obvious (now) confusion about why his Raw Ti was the same weight as his Raw Ns
You can test to see if your Raw Ti is in fact Stainless with the magnets supplied as spacers. Please take out the battery & spring.
If the Magnets slightly cling to the lower body (With out the Battery & spring in) then its not good news. Your Raw Ti as it says on the Logo is made from a Special Aero space Stainless S31 which I am told is only purchased for a particular Job.
Of course if the magnets show no cling then its good news & your Raw Ti is made from Titanium. Your Case Closed.
The other now obvious give away is if you have a Raw Ns & Raw Ti/SS & they are the same weight!! It should be that the Raw Ti is about half the Weight, Not equal.
What I have done with Codeman is to send him the Last Raw Actual Ti I have coming back from the Photographer. He decided he wanted to keep his Raw SS & Paid me a further £100.
What Next?? Well I plan to do another Run of The Raw Ti. Once I have these (& this mistake will not happen again) I can replace the Raw SS's for Real Raw Ti's.
The Raw SS Still cost £100 to make Complete & to me are worth at least that. It is a special grade of SS S31 & I guess should be considered very unique!
Full Refunds to those with SS's would just about break me
So my favorite solution is to Replace with a Real Raw Ti when they are made & if you wish to keep your Raw SS & pay £100 when the 2nd batch of Raw Ti's are ready to go. As Codeman did. Then Great.
Other than that if you return the Raw SS when the Ti's are done I can offer them for Sale here on CPF.
Please post your findings here Ti or SS I would like to see a reply from every body please.
It will be impossible for there to be more than 20 of the SS Raws out there.
I will make right what has gone wrong here & please except my sincere apologies for this genuine Cock Up
