    no sorry, no trit-sphere holder. You mean a plastic tube, like that, right?

    The vial fits exaclty without any play. So no need to an extra tube.

    I was thinking a 2 piece sphere holder with a thread
    a lanyard loop and a flat base to stand
    lots of large holes to let the tritium out

    sorry to go a bit off topic

    your vial holders are the nicest looking ones I've seen btw

    I was thinking a hollow skull with a way to get a sphere inside the skull. Holes for the eyes, nose & mouth.
    I would be all over one of those.

    Toby, I LOVE the design of this! How many will be available? Hope to be able to get one!
    The picture on the previous page is beautiful! Looking forward to seeing it done.

    Not to get off topic but, Launch Mini, funny you should say that. I made these brass skulls a few months back. It has an 11mm green trit sphere inside and shines through the 2 holes on the sides and through the nose. I planned to put 1.5x5mm vials in the eyes. I just use a piece of rubber as a plug to keep it in. Took about 20 hours total. I use the mill to rough out the shape and mill any holes slots that can't be done by hand. the rest was all done freehand with a set of files.
    Kinda scary to think about how long it took to do the 3..

    gollum, I have something in the works that might be what you are looking for. I too have 2 x 18mm spheres and have been messing around with a few ideas...I'll start a separate thread when its ready.

    Extremly nice product, drilling 48 holes must take some serious time. I look forward to puchasing one.
