Thread: Tri-V lens cap sales thread

  1. #1

    Default Tri-V lens cap sales thread

    A big thank you goes to Dave and fasteddie for getting the ball rolling on this. You can thank Dave as well for making a master for me to work off of.

    Fasteddie and I decided that it would be easier for me to handle the sales and shipping of these due to the circumstances. Since the production is going to take awhile(2 months?), if shipping them to fasteddie was to make much sense, we would have to wait to the end when they could all be sent over in one box. On top of that since we both happen to live in the lovely state of Texas I would have to charge sales tax on all the monies collected and transferred over. At least that's my understanding of it. What I will do instead is ship directly as they yield. I will probably ship like once every week or two when I have built up a few to make traveling to the post office more efficient.

    Instead of having everyone list what they want here I will just go by your orders. When you pay just let me know what colors the payment is for by leaving a message in the box provided during payment. Orders will be filled in roughly the order they are received. I say roughly because if I see I will need two or three of the same color and it is one of the harder to mix up it makes more sense to do them all in one run.
    __________________________________________
    The Options




    From Left to right: Cast aluminum---Bright Red---Transmissive Black---Liquid Titanium---Glow


    Gold


    Java Black


    Cast Titanium



    Pink Pearl


    Blue




    Blue Marble




    Translucent colors



    First is the control which is lit by an incan.


    Translucent Green



    Translucent Red



    Translucent Blue



    __________________________________________

    Pricing Structure

    This is basically decided by the difficulty of the color in question. The cast titanium for example took me a really long time to try and capture the subtle color evident. It is not going to be shiny like your light of course but hopefully will get close to the color it would be if rough cast.



    ---Transmissive Black $10

    ---Translucent Blue $12

    ---Translucent Green $12


    ---Translucent Red $12

    ---Cast aluminum $13

    ---Solid Gold $13

    ---Blue $13

    ---Pink Pearl $14

    ---Liquid Titanium $14

    ---Java Black $14

    ---Glow $14

    ---Bright Red $16

    ---Marble ( can specify any two colors) $20

    ---Cast Titanium $25 (extremely difficult to mix)


    So is this all you can do Michael?
    Of course not! I am working on a few more options such as a splatter two-tone. I will post the prices and pics of those when and if they turn out. There is far more than I can manage to post here. Translucent colors like Cobalt blue or Ruby Red. If you don't find what you want chances are I can make it. Don't however just assume I can make something or what the price might be if it is not listed. Send any inquiries to the email address listed at the bottom.

    I can also custom color match your favorite teams color or colors. There are some limitations but I will do my best to fulfill your request. This will require you to send me whatever you want matched. When the part is ready to ship the item will be returned along with the cap. The price for this? $38

    Just to make things easier everything will be shipped USPS Priority flat rate. $5 to the US and $14 to the rest of the world. If you are ordering multiple items the shipping is only charged once.
    The only exception to this is if you chose the custom color match and the article you sent will need shipped back. If it does not fit in an envelope then there will be an up-charge for shipping that item back. Also Texas residents will be charged Texas sales tax at 8.25%.

    So to recap. Choose your color/colors and add them up. Add to that the appropriate shipping amount to arrive at your total. Send this amount along via paypal with a note of the requested colors to the email listed at the bottom of this post.


    What to expect.
    Although every effort has been made to make "perfect" parts one must keep in mind the limitations of my setup. There will be a part line on the back side of the cap as well as an injection point. I focused my efforts to make sure the front looks as good as possible since that is the side you see with it fitted.

    Also keep in mind that there are quite possibly differences in both how my camera/lighting renders the real thing and differences in how your screen may render them apart from reality.

    Thanks guys! -Michael

    Yes. They are degassed and then go into a pressure chamber.

    I just wanted to drop by and say this is one of the nicest looking aftermarket flashlight "accessories" I've ever seen. Everyone who brought this to fruition did an excellent job! I don't have a Tri-V and probably never will and I'm still tempted to buy one! lol

    I'm down for a Ruby Red as well! Can you nail down a price? Or hold my order so I don't have to pay shipping twice?

    Here are the translucent colors. I can do yellow too for the same price. These I find especially interesting because they actually come in handy for more than just protection. They expand the lighting options on the light that already had the most options of any light on the market. Many like red output for lighting the way at star parties and you will find the red to be perfect for the job. It looks just like you had a full-on red LED in there. Blue works highly efficiently as well and makes things look just like you had a royal blue LED. The green is not as good of an outcome. The pictures don't pick up the green too well. It works just fine but does not have the intensity or saturation that the other two have. BTW I can also do a purple one which should be interesting since there really are no true purple LEDs that I know of outside of the evidot ones which are really dim. Anyway let me know what you think. The options and beamshots have been added to the main list.

    I realize this would require an extra mold, but it would be super-cool if the translucent colors were available with grommeted cutouts for colored lenses to be installed in front of the projector, to preserve the throw of the beam without exposing the aspheric to damage.

    However, since that's almost certainly a bridge too far, I'll take 2x Cast Titanium and 2x Translucent Red. Paypal incoming.

    I guess I am the only one with questions. Is the color the only difference between choices? Because you mention UV stabilizer, GIDP and colors as ingredients for these lens caps which makes me wonder if these additives will impact on hardness/softness. Which lens cover will be the most durable? Will they be a friction fit or will they use an o-ring? I see a lot of pictures of the top of the lens cover but none of the portion that slips into the TRI-V itself. Thank you for all your hard work on this project.

    Sorry, I was napping in the back row.

    Great job .... Michael!..
    I'll take in no hurry what so ever:
    One each Please..
    ---Translucent Blue $12
    ---Translucent Green $12
    ---Translucent Red $12
    ---Glow $14
    And Yellow if you have enough orders.
    And any other translucent color you may come up with.

    When I fist saw the samples I had already thought, ok I'll need to drill a hole in these so I can see the light. Hmm I wish.. lol

    But then I saw the others and they are great.
    I use my Tri-V a lot for lighting photo and video opportunities and these will add so many variables. Oh ya!!..
    PP sent any over is tax or whatever. ')

    Many thanks dude..

    Please change my solid red to translucent red. Might as well get the red filter aspect. Dont worry about the price difference.
