    gollum... your post #54 above caused havoc, and I've had to edit it.

    Please ensure you put a line break between photos, and between photos and text, otherwise they all appear horizontally. This causes a big nuisance with sideways scrolling being required.
    Resistance is futile...

    oops sorry will remember that cheers DM51

    hey fred I have an idea as to how much that would cost ...
    I was quoted for a similar material ring in size 11 which is 20mm approx
    I was keen to buy but the price was too much

    if you make this light it will be something to behold

    needless to sat there will be no heavy knurling or deep grooves

I believe the blend will be silver, white palladium gold and red gold.

    Needless to say, I'm not planning a production run of precious metal Mokume Gane lights.
    That's great news!

    Even though a light like this will be very expensive I think there is a small market for very high end custom lights made from exotic materials. Obviously those are not meant to be users but rather collectors objects (cf. the market for expensive custom knives).

    At least I would be interested very much, but I have to say that due to certain financial limitations my interest would be for a light the size of a Petit Killer, not a CR123 light. In that case the light actually would be used daily as a piece of jewellery in necklace duty......

    Silver, white palladium gold and red gold, I have to say that this combination certainly has a very high drool factor. I'd better start saving right now

    That makes two of us--I'll have to pay for that Mokume Gane at some point in time.

    gollum,

    Yes, but at least for the time being, there's no need for me to solicit donations.

    There are much more worthy causes to support, should the CPF membership feel so inclined.

    I'm just thankful that a bunch of them do buy my lights.
