    Guys,
    You should walk by the bag that's full of the caps! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img] Between the boots and the nail polish, my two remaining brain cells are in jeopordy! I am assuming that the neoprene will eventually stop smelling but I guess time will tell. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif[/img]

    If you want, I can stop selling these for a couple weeks or months and let the boots air out prior to release?

    Let's see, stinking boots! I got it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Instead of using bubble wrap to ship the caps, use Oder-Eaters shoe inserts! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nana.gif[/img]

    I am sorry for the confusion, but what is a turnkey and what is the point of having a resistor in the tail switch? Is it to give multiple light levels (like a 2 stage)?

    Default Re: McE2S TurnKey tail switches: build to suit

    Turnkey means that the piece works right out of the box, no assembly required. You are right. The point is to be able to have low output from the light (resisted) as well as full output.

    I've got two Polar(heart rate monitor) bike handle bar adapters which are listed as being made from recyled polyurethane. They have the same odor as the tail cap boots!

    Default McE2S 2 stage switches-HA -Nat & BK

    kj,

    Great photos! Thanks! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    I now have the tail caps in HA- Nat as well and am offering them in build to suit along with the black. Same method of order as laid out on the first post in this thread.

    I found some washers similar to the ones in the 123 cells and I am now including these in the builds, placed between the boot flange and jam nut. Although they aren't required in all cases, I don't like the idea of one of you having to take one of these switches apart and shiming it to get constant on function.

    As kj's photos illustrate, the one component in these switches that falls well short of the rest in terms of perceived quality is the jam nut. Getting these machined out of nylon was more expensive than if they had been turned from Al and anodized. They suit their purpose and function just fine but they are ugly and a PITA due to the interference in the thread. I have gone ahead and requested a quote on a mold and plan to get the part molded. The unit cost on the nut will go way down but the cost of the mold will be painful! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img] None the less, I am hopeful that these switches will become as popular with others as I have found them to be and I want them to be right! The molded nuts are at least two months away so there will be plenty of the current machined nuts placed in service.

    Thanks guys! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    Great pics kj! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    Here are some quickly taken ones of mine (pardon the dust [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] ). I have no problem getting constant one with mine. Find them a bit more hefty than the standard E2D tailcap but that means it's solidly made. The black HA is as Don said, very close to that of Surfire's, just a tad paler maybe but matches the black PR-T heads perfectly of course. The blind tapped hole on the knurled section lines up perfectly as a witness mark corresponding to that on the Surefire body to show where lock-out position is & another full turn will show where constant on starts. Good stuff! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    Hi guys! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    I admit to being derilect of duty yesterday and most of today! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img] I got to watch one of our favorite photographers from New York "tie the knott" here in the bay area yesterday in the company of a certain major weenie along with our wives and we had a nice dinner and illuminating discussion well into the beginning of today. I have blown most of this day now with phone and E-munications and it's about time I get to the soldering iron and work bench so I can put on the shipper's hat later tonight! I hope to get to all of the existing requests before going Ni-Ni and if you don't receive an E-mail with postage tracking for your switches by tomorrow morning, please assume that I screwed up and feel free to send me a follow up E-mail if you are so inclined. I think I got all of the orders sorted out from *other* stuff but *we* must consider the sorter! Since I have a good number of these switch components I can sell, I will likely stop by on ocassion and post some useful piece of information that is in fact, probably just a veiled bump to keep this thread alive and in your face!
