Every time I see activity on this thread I get all excited...and then realize, nope, still no hope. That said, on the odd chance that voicing enthusiasm will contribute to the project's revival -- I'd definitely be interested. Interested in the TiFlis. Interested in the FancyFlis. Interested in whatever Chip thought was worth pursuing. I'd buy a couple of each. (How come there's no "fingers crossed" smiley?)
Yes, every time I see this thread with a new post I get excited, then realize they are still not being made, then I get a bit nostalgic thinking about when I got my name put on the list and thought "any day now!" I would receive my new TiFli.
Ah, those were the days...the thrill of a new light being fabricated exactly how I wanted it. Then slowly the feeling fades into oblivion, and I wake up with a cold slap on the face.... WAKE UP! THERE ARE NO MORE!
Seriously, if I had just a bit more time on my hands I would resurrect this project. Such a shame to see it die
I have a close friend that runs a machine shop. If someone had a drawing or exact measurements it would be a simple thing to build. I sent him pictures over 6mos ago and was told it would not be a problem. If someone wanted to sell one I would pay good money for one and be happy to have them built.
