Wow!! This is brilliant, A Lummi Sub Forum here on CPF. Quite an Honour.
Massive to Sasha for providing this
This is great to see all the threads I have ever started all in one place.
Lummi / Orb That's me Rob Cheetham has spent most of my time here on CPF in the manufactures corner. As Lummi & others have evolved I do feel the Niche small quantity* products that I produce & supply are now better suited in this CPF CBM forum..
* Hundreds & Thousands.
An small insight to Lummi.
Alu Orb to return soon for Ltd 100 Of.
The Metal work or torch case is first designed by myself then Produced 7 Miles away from my workshop in the UK by a Precision CNC shop whom I have a very good relationship with. The MD shares my enthusiasm for New technology & unique designs. I consider this to be very fortunate.
Once a batch of say 100-400 of the metal work is produced it is then delivered to My Lummi Workshop where I spend most of my time.
I also have made the PCB's & buy in the other components from all the over the World.
All Lummi Soldering is still done by myself & I also assemble all Lummi Lights.
Along with Packaging, Shipping & customer service. My Wife Lucy helps sometimes.
When I am on top of orders I like to concentrate on new ideas for future products. However sometimes if there is a idea to pursue I have been known to fall behind with a days work
The focus for the last few years has been small, Now at Wee size who knows how much smaller things will go??? I do wish to revisit how things begun here for me on a independent approach with a high end light like the Orb Ti but with a 07/08 approach...
Below are the most recent photo's of the last 50 Lummi torches I assembled & dispatched last Friday.
