Thread: SPY005 Scratch & Dent sales thread is CLOSED

  1. #1

    Crazy SPY005 Scratch & Dent sales thread is CLOSED

    Post now if you want a light! The Sales thread is now open.



    The prototype scratch and dent 005 is a HA natural aluminum body with chrome head and polished SS 304 knob. This light will look very similar to a chrome HA natural 005 and will cost $325. I am releasing 14 of these.



    Some extra details of the options can be found in this thread. Please scroll down to the second post for pics.


    This sale is a first post first served. Please post as a place holder to keep track of the order. You do not have to specify what you want in the post. Please follow up the post later with an email to me. The subject line of the email should be "SPY005". In the body of the email, please provide your real name and physical mailing address. I also need your CPF handle. Please type your address so I can cut and paste it for the shipping box label.

    Also in the body of the email I need to know what your first preference for the light is. Do you want striation in soap dish or 4-40 clip mount holes or neither? Do you want a Seoul LED or a Cree LED?

    My email is "spy005@comcast.net". That is also my PayPal ID. It is in my sig below.

    There are 14 Scratch &Dent 005 lights (12 Seoul and 2 Cree), price is $325 each. 5 of the lights have striation in the soap dish. Another 5 of the lights have two 4-40 tapped holes in the side that you can use for anything you want. Two of the lights have black production battery caps with a logo in them.

    None of the lights are black, they are a natural HA finish (gray green). And none of the lights actually have any scratches or dents. The cosmetic imperfection is that the chrome on the head is not perfect. All the battery caps are HA natural like the bodies, except the two black ones.

    Shipping is not included in the price. I will charge for the actual shipping cost. All lights sold in the USA will have batteries included. They will not be in the light but they will be in the box. Any lights sold to other countries will not have batteries. PA residents must pay 6% sales tax. I take PayPal or you can send me a check in the mail.

    There is a limit of one light per customer. If you change your mind and decide you do not want the light before you pay for it you can cancel the order and it will fall to the next person on the list.

    Cheers
    Dave

    I'll take one. I'd definitely prefer a cree, to compare it to my seoul (and hopefully, allow me to release one back into the wild!). No holes, and my preference would be for striations in the soap dish

    I actually thought about doing that with one of my lights...

    There was a watch I looked at, in a sporting goods store in NYC, and the compass was liquid filled, glass lens, and appeared to be excellent quality...I'll search for the watch, can't remember the watch brand???, and the store wasn't EMS...

    I'll figure it out and then edit my post.

    Edit: Got it...Luminox 502, the watch was beautiful, but it was crazy heavy SS.

    Spy 005 Seoul, rough soap dish, and the Luminox 502 compass glued with Norland 61 to the soap dish, on the drive side

    There were some very small ones in a group buy a while ago but my guess is they were closer to 0.5". I have a few and will measure one later if you want. I don't think I'd want one in a Spy. Too gimmicky. Also the compasses are pretty thick so am not sure how you'd mount one without having it bulge out too much.

    Do these lights all use the new electronics board?

    Yes, they all use the user programmable power level STFu and include the easter egg programming with variable strobe, beacons, SOS and simulated candle mode.

    Do the threaded holes go clear through into the battery container? If not, i'll take a solid colored one with or without holes. Thanks.

    Only requirement is NO black caps and no holes through to the battery compartment (but normal threaded holes are ok)

    Yes, the holes go through to the battery compartment. To be water tight the set screws have to be put in with lock-tight or silicon. I supply set screws to fill all the 4-40 holes. You can see them in the picture above.

    I will reserve you a light without 4-40 holes.


    Cheers
    Dave

    Greg,
    I'm hoping there is such a clip, if not, I'm going to try to design one.

    I never made a pocket clip for it. I did have a titanium lanyard loop made for it but I can't find them right now. I will look some more tomorrow.
