Thread: McLux DIY parts @ the Sandwich Shoppe

  1. #1

    Default McLux DIY parts @ the Sandwich Shoppe

    I just looked at the site and the DIY parts are now listed. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
    I went through and priced what I think is required to build one just like the original TK serise, I came up with about $150 including optics.

    Is that right? Or am I looking at the parts list wrong?

    Ooops. See, I go to a Ballgame and look what happened...

    I didn't think I enabled them for shopping, but, I guess I screwed that up.

    The head comes complete with contact assy, bezel, wire kit, mineral glass and o-rings.

    It does not include the converter board, Luxeon LED and the optics. These are left separate so they can be configured as needed.

    The power packs include the Kroll switch and O-rings.

    For a 1X123 the parts should total $137.65 (BB400, Q3 LED, and McFlood).

    I'm getting an assembly house to quote assembling some into completed flashlights and if the price to do this is reasonable, we will convert some of the DIY parts into completed flashlights similar to the TK run. There will some slight differences. Stay tuned.

    For those of you who got in and placed an order, the weight was a temporary place holder and thus you got charged too much for freight. I need to rebate back some of the shipping charges to you somehow. I can credit this towards a future order or something. Anyway, Sorry about that. The official shoppe opening is Monday. I'll leave the shoppe posting enabled, but, you will not be able to place an order at this time.

    I still need to get the pictures loaded and the descriptions written up correctly.

    Thanks Wayne. For my order (it's possible that I was the 1st one to actually order the DIY stuff from your site), just let me know how much of a credit I have for the overcharge on shipping and we can apply that to my next order.

    Does the power pack include a pocket clip or is that a seperate item?

    Stupid question as you didn't mention it: will the battery body also include the TI-clip?

    Don't you just hate it when people send you too much money, Wayne? :-)

    Seriously, it can be a real pain in the butt to sort out, so I hope there weren't too many orders too soon. Gotta keep an eye on Ray - he's a sneaky one.

    Pardon my asking, but why are these machined aluminum parts so expensive? $45 for a head with no LED, no optics? Seems like a cult thing. I don't want to seem out of line, but I have friends with Mazak's that could turn these things out for a couple of bucks. Also, the most important item, the DC to DC converter is only twenty something? Doesn't make sense. I don't mean to offend anyone! Just asking for clarification.

    there a custom machined parts, designed for US CPF'ers, they were produced in quantity and plated etc, i'm sure it wasn't cheap for them to have these made in quantity especially considering that the design isn't simple.

    Wayne...

    This may be a stupid question, but I have to ask it anyway.

    For those of us who previously "placed an order" for McLux parts (when your website mistakenly allowed orders to be sent through), do we have to re-order again on Monday?

    Now I know the answer is "no", but I`m a pretty paranoid kind of guy when it comes to a chance to get McLux parts...unlike the rest of the CPF`ers.

    Your orders are still intact, no need to re-order. "Credit buttons" have been sent to those who overpaid shipping. You should have received email also.

    Wayne, is there any way to consolidate the 2 orders I just made (within 5 minutes apart from each other)? I know I should've ordered them at the same time, but after hittin' the confirm button, I realized I ordered the parts and no guts...

    I see the 2x 123 and 3x 123 worthwhile for a 5W LS, even if it doesn't involve a supercharged McLux head... Heck, it can host a KL4-5-6 (E2C added), or it can host 2 AAs for a McLux head, or house an E2e or M3 bezel, and on and on... Lots of options, so the bodies, to me, are worth it, even without the turbo head adaptor...

    I don't have my M3 anymore, but I remembered being able to put my M3 bezel onto the E2C adaptor... Or was that my C3...

    I must be missing something because the Sandwich Shoppe Screen doesn't come up with any of the McLux heads or bodies??? Can someone point me to the correct link before it is too late?

    Then it was the C3 head you put onto that adapter. That's what I was wondering due to the fact that the threading on the M3-6 series is different compared to the P,C,Z,D and M2 lights. You might have used an M2 bezel.

    No! Use this instead:

    http://www.anlighten.com/shop/default.php?cPath=21_25

    The long hex number is a session number and if you both use the same one then you'll both get the same shopping cart. ExMB, you should edit that number out.
