    Hi GrimCreaper,

    Thanks for letting me know.
    I updated the link on the products sub-page

    Can anyone enlighten me as to what raw and beaded ti finishes look like, possibly with a pic? I'm assuming beaded means slightly more polished than raw, but would it be a lighter colour too?
    Edit - Don't answer me, i just found the answer on the order page in the form of a comparison pic.
    Hi MT,

    Yes, I was meaning just a holster kind of thing
    Glad you found the comparison photo.

    No email or PM received. Nothing in spam box. Checked subscription & I hadn't checked "All" - that is now corrected.
    Hi nfetterly,
    Thanks. Hoping to get some 2x8mm trits so I can do a quick test.
    Glad you worked out your subscription settings.

    Hi MatNeh,
    As HKJ mentioned, the neutral offering refers to the Nichia 219's.
    Not quite as powerful as the XM-L but its been hailed by many as the "perfect tint".

    Hi HKJ,
    Thank you

    Hi Ward,
    The red glow is a red lens holder ring, similar to the one in the Torpedo

    Hi DBC,
    Thanks very much.
    Maybe give one to your wife and she may just be converted

    Hi DBC / Silgt,

    Thanks for sorting that out

    DBC,
    Thanks very much.


    So here's the latest rendition of the logo / serial (thanks Alex )
    btw, the edges will be slightly rounded but not yet visible in this image.

    Hi Michael,

    The size I used in the photos is the 1.5x5mm
    Im planning to test the 2x8mm but thinking they may be a tiny bit too long.
    Checking up on one more size 2mm x 6mm.

    For now, I don't think I can offer trits because of import restrictions where I am.
    just 1 or 2 can slip through inside a product but any modest quantity will be inspected and possibly restricted.

    Thought you'd appreciate them.
    Just need to find a container big enough to anodize the whole rod

    Serial Numbers...
    For now my plan is that each raw material will have its own serials range starting at 00001.
    That means Ti Raw/Blasted share the same range (just to make sure in 99 years, if your blasted looks raw, you wont be confused).

    And I have a feeling that most of you will probably guess the serials correctly, as long as no-one has guessed that serial already,
    In Ti 1~125, Br 1~30, and maybe some higher numbers as we go along....
    Copper will have its own range too.

    Expecting to hear back from a copper supplier tomorrow.

    That would be a nice number to get.

    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for posting.

    Ive had emails asking for numbers....
    I think its best to post them all here so you can keep track and I dont get multiple mails for the same number.

    and just for the record, ALL the numbers are winning numbers

    These numbers already gone (sorry Silgt)
    Ti:
    #00001
    #00022
    #00017 (post above)
    #00220 (if we get that far)

    Br:
    #00001
    #00022

    Whoever orders the first copper can still get #00001
    when it becomes available.
    (I hope tomorrow I can confirm the delivery timing of the copper stock)

    I hope things work out with the future Mrs Esko

    The trits I used in the photos were the 1.55x5mm.
    I'll post the specs of the trit slots (size) when I get a moment but diameter of the hole is 2mm, just need to check the length.
    I think from memory 8mm. Let me see if I can get a hold of some 2x8mm trits to test.
    Everything works out fine I know, just tried to be a bit funny. And I think it is only the third light (for myself) this year. Or maybe fourth. And the first ones were cheap. Or at least affordable. I think.

    I guess it is 1,55*5 then.. But waiting for your tests. I didn't actually order the light yet , since I was planning to buy the copper version. But it might be that I end up choosing Ti after all, due to the more inert nature of the metal and because the everlasting silver color is stylish always and everywhere. Decisions, decisions...

    Quote Originally Posted by emu124 View Post

    Number 1 would of course be always nice. I like the number 7 too, and I must say that considering the nature of the light, the secret agent number double-double-0 7 (00007) would suit to it very well...

    edit: Didn't realize I was this slow... Or perhaps it was because I was eating and listening to radio at the same time. Didn't see 4 last answers before posting.

    Hi Esko,

    Thanks for the post.
    Im trying to arrange some 2mm x 6mm trits which would be good, I'd just prefer not to be arrested over it

    Titanium is timeless, but most raw metals are.
    I really like the retro look of brass too.

    Pre-order for copper may happen anytime in the next 24-72hours... (fingers crossed).

    Titanium is timeless... and copper is special. You can make a surgical instruments out of titanium, but you can kill the bacteria with copper.

    Titanium - timelessness
    brass - retro
    copper - steampunk (at least when tarnished - if allowed to do that)

    Before I posted the last answer, I didn't see that we could actually choose the serial number (although I suspected that it might be the case). My first choice would be #1 if free and second choice would be #7, but since I have not ordered yet and especially since I started to wonder if I after all would choose Ti over Cu, I believe I should not have dibs to any number before the actual order.

    Hi Esko,
    Nice post
    #1 is history
    #7 is yours but... you need to order it, just to be fair.
    I can hold it in CU until Cu pre-orders start though if you like.

    Hi Silgt,
    You got it!


    Some help & clarity please

    If you'd like to request a specific serial, I'm more than happy to give it to you provided its available.
    As not everyone has listed their cpf name in the order message, can I ask you to help me (help you) by requesting as follows:

    ###00001 - Ti - TransactionId - cpfname
    ###00110 - Br - TransactionId - cpfname

    That way I can match it up with your order correctly and its easier to search for the 3 ### when the time comes.

    Thanks so much

    Right, missed his post.
    If he's taking #2, I'll take #8 then. Thanks.

    (btw, I don't know how in the world do you manage to keep track of the orders, special requests, extra orders, changes, serials etc. )
