I didn’t bother to do the math. Is that what they’re going up to?

If you think that’s bad, wait till you see the price on zirconium Rotary HDS lights!

Zirconium is easy to work with and shouldn't be a problem. Will the flashlight be oxidized to black or just shiny metal?

I actually spray Zirconium on piston’s and engine parts. It’s easy to work with when it’s coming out of a plasma gun😁

Will you be the appraiser on antique roadshow when these hard users bring in their Zirc torches to be valued ?

I did speak with the machinist about zirc back when the titanium run was done and brought it up to him again last week… so waiting on a quote from him. I don’t remember what he quoted a few years back as I think I passed out. He is also looking into… another metal for me. That I’ll keep to myself as I just don’t know the possibility of even getting it right now.

How about nickel titanium? Aka “memory metal.”

Dropped your light? No worries! A splash of hot water will return its shape.

or OR OR! how about 8-9 carat gold? wouldn't even be that expensive, you could probably machine it out from $1000 worth of raw materials

If we are going nuts..... Damascus might be cool depending on how the patterns showed up. Yep, we are dreaming, but that is fun, we all need a little fun nowadays.....
