    Default Tritium Ti Ring.

    Hi Guys,

    I would like to gauge interest in a contemporary styled, comfortable Titanium finger ring with Tritium locators.
    At this stage I foresee 3 x locators, 6mm long & 1.5mm Dia. Green, Ice Blue or White.
    These will be in machined slots which I am aiming to get machined in, on a diagonal on the fattest part of the ring.
    Norland 61 Optically clear UV adhesive will be used to encapsulated each locator.

    The ring itself will be very finely machined & besides the style & shape will have some intricate milling of the word Lummi or Lummi logo.
    The band width or length will be between 5.5 & 6mm. Overall diameter will depend on the Inside diameter, I,e finger size.
    On one hand (pun intended!) It would be cool just to make some of these & offer them right up for sale.
    Trouble is with a wearable ring is the various sizes......
    So if you are interested in a Self powered wearable ring CNC machined from Titanium.
    Please post your interest & your exact ring size in Millimeters.

    I would like to think we can offer say 18mm - 23mm+? in 0.5mm increments.
    Example my prototype is 21mm Inside Diameter (ID) & fits nicely on the finger we point with, you know the one next to your thumb....
    It is not possible to confirm the exact price just yet, I would like to think it will be around the £60 mark.


    Note proto made from Aluminum & pencil marks indicate intended milled slots for locators.

    No danger at all. Many wear a Tritium watch. It's just alpha radiation.

    As long as the tritium is imbedded into the Ti far enough so I won't pop them by knocking into stuff then I am very interested.
    How far can you recess the vials?

    If I go for this I would want 3 green. Oh and how much is the total shipped in US funds?

    I'll go for one in size 6. Actually, I would prefer to have tritium dots instead of rods. Is that doable?

    I would be in for one. Ice Blue rods in size 15 (USA size).

    I'm not completely sure of the size. If/when we can buy your rings, I will find out.
