Thread: (CLOSED) Anodized Ti clips by "ukmidnight" (you gotta see this!)

    Smile (CLOSED) Anodized Ti clips by "ukmidnight" (you gotta see this!)

    Hi folks,

    I sent a bunch of clips across "the pond" to be electrically anodized by the master, "ukmidnight". If you haven't seen his thread you can view it here. . I

    This thread is a preview of some work he's doing for me which will hit the shelves as a limited batch of 10 blue splash anodized clips and 10 that are "up to him" that should include some fades and who knows what else. The difference between his anodizing and mine is that I use flame and he uses electricity. Both result in the same oxide layer, but anodizing with electricity allows amazing control over the color. Using a flame is much less precise as you will see in the photos.

    If you are a current Alpha owner and have a Ti clip you want anodized, please contact ukmidnight directly.



    This thread is a pre-order for the 10 splash anodized clips!

    The other 10 clips will go up for pre-order after I get photos

    Posting an "I'll take it" here establishes the order number. You have 24 hours to send paypal to jason@darksucks.com (after posting) otherwise your spot goes to the next person in line.

    Buy New: $55 which includes priority flat rate shipping in the US. Add $7 for Canada/Mexico. Add $12 for everywhere else.

    Trade in: $35 which includes priority flat rate shipping in the US. Add $7 for Canada/Mexico. Add $12 for everywhere else.

    I'm actually not making any money on these beyond what I normally make for a raw Ti clip. I'm charging you my cost plus shipping.

    PLEASE NOTE: The clips are still in the UK and need to be finished and mailed back to me before I can send them out. It may be 3-4 weeks before I can ship them but I'll post updates here.

    Each of these clips is one of a kind so once it's gone...well, that's it. There are 10 clips here. #1 is on the left, #10 is on the right. Begin!

    Wow, can't wait to see one of these beauties riding a Blue Label Alpha. That blue splash is really going to "pop" off the nickel plating - uk got the color just right. Are these a one-time offering, or (depending on interest) are you going to periodically commision runs of these from uk?

    Congratulations on your new baby boy and I hope you are enjoying paternity leave.

    I'll take one please

    Does it make a differance that I am in the UK?

    And not to sound cheeky...but I dont think you still do the 'shorty' tubes do you. And Do your Xtar USB charger's charge 16340's? I did not order one when I got my Alpha, as I have a Pila charger...but it has a too high current charge for 16340's (18650's obviously ok).

    Thanks again Jason!

    ...sorry scratch the first part, I forgot you are on paternity leave, so won't be doing any shorty tubes.
    Hope the leave, and 'new addition' are all well!

    Hey, if you already have a clip you might consider sending it to ukmidnight, that would be a lot cheaper

    ukmidnight does have quite a hand for splash-anodizing.

    How about a trade-up program?
    Just kidding. Thinking I'll have to send mine over there to get it done. Being that it's currently my only Ti I don't think I'll do it myself.

    Wish I could take one off your hand Jason!

    I've added these clips to the pre-order and first post. They should be in the mail soon and (if all goes well) should arrive at my house in about two weeks.

    Please keep in mind these will also fit Surefire 6 series lights and clones. You can see the fitment list on my website here.

    Just got my clip back from ukmidnight.

    Looks awesome...it really does look better in person, I just took a quick phone pic, as I have literally just put it back on the Alpha now

    I usually am a pretty conservative person when it comes to these things. I have to say that looks pretty darn cool. Saving for an Alpha Blue Label right now...gotta get that clip when I get that light!

    Regards.

    I am a SUCKER for splash Ano..., and then UKMidnite shows the photo on a TNC Ti P60 host, crap now I have to buy 2, one for my TNC host and one for my future Alpha Blue label (Neutral MC-E). Yeah I am a fan of neutral MC-E's. Strangely enough Milky updated my Gotham (which is now a gunmetal blue HAIII Ano) with a boom reflector and neutral MC-E about a year ago.....

    Then the SST-50 neutral became a favorite, I've got XM-Ls and my M2-50 neutral is coming home with a neutral XM-L (I hope i love it as much as the M2-50 !!).

    Oh by the way I'll take #2 and #4 (wish I could take #10 too - that's a winner as well!!), pp coming up in the am from the photo above.

    Jason, this time off you are taking is somehow seeming to generate considerable interest in your blue label Alphas. Don't loose those blue o-rings, it's the little touches, the numerous little touches....



    PP sent for #2 & #4.

    Sadly all of these clips, and my Mac's Ti EDC, were all lost by the USPS after they returned the package to the UK because of a mistake at the local post office

    You are joking right? What a croc Jason. I just found this thread and as I was reading it from the start, I was telling myself hopefully there will be one left.
    What a shock....
