    Default Copper 26650 - Interest - $498 ea with 3+ buyers

    I plan on getting a copper 26650 host from TnC. There would need to be at least 2 more purchased to get the lowest price. Would anybody else be interested? The price is $498 if there at least 3 buyers. I'll start a list of names that are interested or have paid below.

    1. Myself - paid
    2. dlmorgan999 - paid
    3. ?
    4+ ?

    The cost includes your option of V1 or V3. Other options include tritium slots, battery tube extensions and 26650 or 18350 battery tubes.

    We need to put just a little more salary time between these runs. I only get paid so much per month. Sheez.

    I know huh. I still have a couple Ti E-series bodies I need to post on my store.

    I will be putting a Pre-Pay link on my store for anyone interested in this Copper 26650 Housing with either a V1 or V3 Head. This might be really nice with a Titanium Crenulated Bezel. once I get three I will order the material and start machining these.

    Bumping this back up to the top. I've been ready to pay for mine. I just hate to pay $498 then wait three months or more for another person to pay.

    How much would it be to get an extension for 2 x 26650? I might go for one if you are willing to make them.

    I would be in for a shorty (just like what I have in Ti, Chris).

    Just keep that in mind when you start the run. I'll keep my eyes on this thread.

    Dr Evil, I can make an extra tube for you which will let you use 2x26650 cells.

    Obijuan Kenobe, I can make you the shorty. That won't be a problem. You would want it to use the 18350 cell correct?

    I have received payment for one. If you have paid please post paid so the list can be updated.

    Ok. I now have you marked on the list on the store.

    If you goto the store you can see what options are available. I have put the 18340 tube option on the site as well as matching extension tubes for either the 26650 or 18340 design.

    We just need two more people to prepay or have a confirmed WTB and I will order material and start on these.

    Sorry I am not been thick but 2 points I want to clarify

    1. The website shows $633 - is this the new price ?
    2. When you say 18350 body - are you saying that it will be 18350 internal diameter but 26650 external diameter to keep it the same proportions as a 26650 light?

    Hello Mohan,

    Thanks for letting me know about the website price. I forgot to have an option for None on the extension tube. So it added that to the price. It is all fixed now.

    When I say 18350, I mean it will be shorter and the interanal diameter will be for an 18350 cell. The OD will stay the same size as the 26650.

    How hard would it be to get tritium slots in the copper? That might be a good option for those that want them. I'm thinking about going that route myself.

    I can do the Trit slots if people want them. I will add that to the store as options.

    Obi, Are you still interested in an 18350 version of the copper 26650 host?

    Ok. Thanks, Dr Evil has already paid and is patiently waiting for two or more other people so I can start on these lights. I did put the 18350 option on the site for others that might want this option also.

    Bad tax month. I am going withdraw this as official. If this process actually begins, I will recheck things and get back in if I can.

    You just work too fast for me to commit. If you start this run tomorrow, I'll need to have money ready in a matter of days, and that's not going to happen.

    Keep me in the loop if you can.

    What is the durability of copper like? I've always thought of it as a relatively soft metal.

    Wouldn't it be along the same lines as a 1 cent coin? These hold up pretty well.
    The 26650 will be much thicker than that.

    That makes sense. I'm starting to get more interested in possibly buying one of these.

    The other question that comes to mind is how would the finish hold up? For example, will skin oil have any adverse affect on the finish? Continuing with the 1 cent coin idea, they don't stay shiny looking very long, while (as far as I know) titanium stays very good looking with little to no maintenance.

    I'm not sure in TnC puts anything on them to prevent tarnishing. Here's three ideas I came up with:

    1. Leave the tarnish and think of it as looking old/used.
    2. Keep busy polishing
    3. Find something to coat it with so it stays shined. This product was mentioned on a marine forum I found in a search for coatings. http://www.mcmaster.com/#lacquer-paint/=h5rire

    I was scouring the forums this morning and found a number of good posts on copper maintenance. Many people like the patina that develops over time although I'm not one of them.

    I saw various suggestions of things that work well to clean and polish copper. One that was mentioned a couple of times was "Barkeeper's Friend".

    The nice thing about a P60 host is that if you removed the drop-in and the switch, you could dunk the whole thing in a bowl of solution if you wanted! That would make for a fairly fast and easy cleaning (although the grooves would probably need some additional TLC).

    I'm fairly close to deciding to buy this light (although I need to wait at least a few weeks to replenish the bank account!). Now we just need at least one more person who is interested.
    Here is a list of my lights.

    I'd be a little scared to try to apply a coating in case I messed things up.
    I already have an all-copper light and at the moment I'm polishing it regularly.
    I find that once a week or once a fortnight is enough and it only takes a couple of minutes for the new-looking shine to return. Others enjoy the aged look from the tarnish.

    The material has been ordered. I will be making three of these lights so hopefully there will be three people that want these when they are ready. If not then I will have them on my site for anyone that might not be able to pay now but want one when completed. I might be able to squeeze out four lights if I make the tube length for an 18350 cell. Which I beleive there is already interest in this lenght battery.

    If you are interested please chime in or leave me an e-mail so I can make it to your specifications.

    1. 26650 tube or 18350 tube
    2. V1 Head or V3 Head
    3. Trit Slots Head, Tail, and quantity

    If no one chimes in then they will be made standard with no trit slots and head and battery version of my choosing.

    I definitely want one, although I won't have the funds for a few weeks (at this point I'm thinking the first week in May or so) so feel free to do whatever you need. Having said that, what I planned to order is an 18350 tube, a V3 head and max trits (8 in the head, 6 in the tail).
    Here is a list of my lights.
