Hello Hogo, I hope it's ok if I try here since Henry isn't answering via e-mail: is there any update on the HDS Rotary SN 38406 that I sent in? It's the one that sometimes flashes to the highest level when dialing down or up the levels.

I'm not taking up for Henry or excusing his behaviors....but It seems he prefers the phone because he always answers when I call….and then he’ll spend 20+ mins answering any questions

I never thought about calling since I'm in Argentina, but I'll see if I can call through Skype. Thanks!

You mean if it should freeze over and the snowball makes the trip?
Have a better chance of me getting married again.
That's a funny way of saying, "Sure! Send 'em in! Henry would love to waste his time swapping Rotary internals!"

I have a Rotary that did the same thing. I sent it in but it still did it when I got it back. It was one of the later models with the noisy contacts. It seemed to do it in almost exactly the the same dial position.

Phone call did the trick; "in the next few weeks" - @ Hogo: since that's in Henry-weeks, is that before 2023?! ;-)

I hope he can fix mine. I wouldn't call mine noisy, but it's my only Rotary. When I hold it next to my ear I can hear a little bit of grinding.. But only then. I think it's from 2017.
My panda jumps levels. Only every so often. Doesn’t bug me yet lol.
Jumping levels would be fine - mine goes to the maximum level. It's literally a flash, when it's very dark and you're on the lowest levels it literally blinds you for a few seconds and is very unpleasant (it can can also get stuck there until rotating again). I'd be fine with skipping a level every so often.

@Hogokansatsukan
What about NB27? I stated that in the Emitter recommendation thread some time ago. 219B is well known @ HDS and I think there is a nice (maybe smaller group of ~20 people) that might be interested. Would be a great thing is HDS would do this.
The LED is still available:

Since it is not something completely new like the Samsung LEDs when they were checked and everything I guess the effort should be not that high.

You know I like that warm colors. :) Therefore my question.

NB27? Isn't that Amber? LOL!
I can probably make that happen as I have to have a bunch of emitters mounted. Start a new thread Warrior and lets see who is interested between now and the 24th.

I don't remember who was looking for the ceracote HDS, but now I see one on ebay. It is dirty green color, if it was purple or pink i would buy it myself.

@desert.snake cerakote looks really cool but wears out quite fast. I own a few Surefires with Cerakote. This Lights are not intended to be used. I do use all of my HDS, therefore no Cerakote HDS.
But anway that HDS at ebay Looks nice.

Does Cerakote prevent ketone ablation of the body substrate?

""Always best to call Henry about a repair"". That I am sure is the case, but not everyone can use phones during "office hours". Email is not time frame dependent as they can be sent and responded to whenever. If he is not going to respond to email, he should not have one....................... I have been waiting for a response for 3 MONTHS. Every email (3) has been pleasant but it is getting a bit frustrating as I have two unusable lights.
