Hi. Are the white torches with spheres avaliable now?

And how much for one.

Fred, leaving the sphere such exposed was not planned, but the sphere was too big to go deeper into the reflector.
But I have to say that I really love the look of this "eyeball" :)
The top of the sphere is still behind the front metal ring so I do not see a too big risk.

Thanks so much again for making this happen, even it take so long that the sphere already lost nearly half of it's brightness ;-)
It was totally worth the wait!

First offers are already coming per PM, but as long as there is not a really insane one this luce will be a for life keeper...

Hi, I am wondering if you have ever made any of these using the 22mm round discs like in the self luminous torch? If so, I'd love to see what they look like. Thanks!

No, but if someone has a 22mm disc and wants in installed in a Luce, I'm interested in that. Can one still buy the 22mm discs?

I don't think so, but they still make the Betalight self luminous torches so that tells me they probably still make fresh 22mm discs. I was thinking of buying one and removing the disc. They are usually $149 on ebay so buying the disc by itself would be much better price-wise. At least, I hope it would.

I wish the cool builders like Fred were still around. I loved watching creative pet projects like this come together!

Seemed like a really exciting time in the forum, watching Luce de Notte projects, alongside all the other things that were going on back then.

I'd like to know what the OTF lumens on these babies are. Really, I like dim lights. Also, I have had a recurring nightmare recently where some distant cosmological event stops electricity from ever working again. Just awful, take my word for it.

It's been so long since I had one but at the time I did use a lot of very low output options, one even being a AA Arc with luminous paint on the reflector, and while sub-optimal, these low output light sources are usable for someone willing to work within the restraints of their limited range and move slowly.
