Thread: Torch's

  1. #1

    Default Torch's

    I closed the Torch list today and will only be selling them here as they become completed. I had to many people backing out while waiting days for there responses.

    All Torches will have the new Mad MaxaBeam battery packs (14.4v) using the new Elite 1500mah cells.

    All info and beamshots are located here

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=117512


    I have 3 units available

    1) Pewter Engraved Tailcap with Finned head $275

    2) Pewter non Engraved tailcap Stock Head (+$20 if wanted finned) $250

    3) Pewter non Engraved tailcap Stock Head (+$20 if wanted finned) $250

    Add $8.10 for shipping

    If you need a charger (12 cell charger) you will have to order one like this

    If you want one post "I'll take it" here.

    Thanks Mac

    LOL! 58 minutes to sell all three. Not a bad hourly rate on your time. Nice Job.

    Sorry to hear that, as one of the people on "The List" that never received anything to respond to. Yeah, I know what waiting days is like. Actually, make that weeks, no, months.

    Thanks for the info. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread. Keep up the good work.

    Sorry to disappoint you but I'm sick of sending PM's stating "I have a Light for you" and then not getting a reply for a week or if at all. I'll have a few more lights ready soon and maybe can work something out.

    Hello Mac,

    Would it be possible for you to make another silver Torch with the full patterned body like the one you sold here? I would be happy to send you a deposit or pay in full to reserve one. If so, could you machine the head to a conical shape too? (Similar to this. I have one and I really like the shape.) Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Mark

    "I'll take one" when you have more ready. I can also pay in advance (no chance of backing out) if you would prefer. Let me know how I can make this painless for you. Thanks.

    I was on the previous list also and I have no plans of backing out at all, infact I was the last poster in the other thread asking when one was going to be ready and was excited about being on the list as I thought I would at last be able to get hold of these great lights!
    However, I look forward to the next available lights or maybe you could do another list and only add names for people who pay a deposit? PEU with the pineapple body has done this and I have paid upfront and looking forward to recieving it (if he gets enough orders that is!), I think it's only fair for people to do this and will also reduce time wasters. If you decide to do this count me in and I'll send money now.

    Sorry to hear this Chris,
    like 45/70, martin t and JasonC I was chuffed to be on your possibles list and happy to wait it out.

    I've experience of more than one custom maker (not of brights) who've been caught out by accepting deposits and making committments to deliver more items than they can actually manage so i'm wary of pushing money on people to secure a place on a list. I don't want to place anyone under obligation.

    I accept that you must be very frustrated if you're building lights for people and then can't get a reply from them once they're ready but it's also obvious that there's no shortage of demand for your work.
    Bearing in mind that people take holidays, travel with work and all, I would have thought it reasonable to send out a PM asking for full or part payment within 2 weeks when you are ready to start on each light. If no reply then I'm sure you'd have no shortage of replies if offered up first-come first-served.

    Sadly for me, I can't be on CPF all the time so I'm in no position to compete with those who are. Without some sort of waiting list your work will remain as far out of reach to me as McGizmo's titanium limited editions. My PM of last week is obviously irrelevant.

    Best wishes, Vandrecken

    At the risk of sounding like a fanboy (so sue me!) The Torch is absolutely one of the last I would ever part with, and probably the most fun of them all.
