Well there is no need for hindsight in that regard. He already has this in the design of the Tri-V. That is precisely what I am adjusting the mold to take advantage of.;)

Here's hoping it works.
Excellent, but... is mine missing the machining line in question? Or are you latching onto the grooves on the outside of the aspheric shroud instead? Now you've gone and made me curious.

Just a short update to let everyone know that the revised caps were dispatched to fasteddie and Dave for testing the other day. Should get some feedback soon.

Michael,

The lens caps you sent me are perfect! Thanks for all your hard work. I am just amazed at how exact the rubber parts came out. You are the MoldMaster!!

cnjl3, they do not look any different on the outside at all.

I put one on my light two days ago and it has not come off in my pocket yet.


Cheers
Dave

I should have included a note in there for you. I sent several different ones to you so you could see the different colors and such but only one has the newer lip. It was one of the black ones. Let me know if you think it is better that way or not. If so I will make both molds that way. BTW what do you think of the tiger striped one? I was just having fun seeing what was possible. Glad you like them.:thumbsup:

The tiger stripe one is very cool.

I gave the only black one to London Lad as he was just at my place for a visit. I did not know it was different than the others.

:huh: Are you serious? So I need to make a new one then I guess. I just can't win. I'll get right on it.

No I like the idea of a UK visit from data. I'll treat him to to lunch (mega pizza at an Italian) and dinner and a ride on the London Eye.

data, please bring an XPG-S2 with you and a soldering station. My original SPY007 awaits. :devil:

Sounds like the initial lens cap batch works fine?
It seems like only Fasteddie will be able to compare the newest lens cap with the first batch since LondonLad only has the newest cap.
Sooooo........Fasteddie --- what is the word?

Hi all,

I have had the black cap, that Data kindly gave me, on my Tri-V for the last couple of days.

It fits and looks great and has stayed on fine. I can't say how it compares to the original as I have never seen one!

I'm off to the airport and back to the UK in a few minutes but I'll willingly pop the black cap in the post back to Data if needed.

No no no. It's not worth that. I'm making him another one. It was my fault anyways as I should have put a note in there mentioning the fact that one was different than the others. I just think it is funny that of all the ones I sent that is the one he gave you. That's life though. Enjoy! :wave:

I'm glad to hear things are coming along! I would also like to hear some more feedback on the original cap design that is being rejected. The reason is, I often keep my Tri-V in a case and I had considered tethering the cap to the case itself. In this instance, the extra grip of the new design may not be necessary. I feel some of us would be willing to pay for those caps knowing what limitations they might have.

In this use the original cap would work fine.

Re: Tri-V
lens cap sales thread

Written by fasteddie on 11-15-2010 12:37 PM GMT

I posted a long reply earlier today. Not sure why its not there.

I've been swamped at work and at home and dealing with some medical issues, so not able to spend time on fun stuff. I apologize for that. But I have been carrying my tri-v almost every night in my front pocket with the new cap. Observations:

I couldnt find a difference in appearance between the original and the v2 cap. I'm sure there's a difference, but my eyes arent good enough to see it. It does seem like the flood cover is stiffer on v2 than on v1.

The first few days with the new cap, it did come off in my pocket a couple times. After that, it didnt come off again. This was almost the same as my experience with v1. Maybe fewer pop offs with v2. I dont think I changed anything about the way I carried it. In ever instance, I didnt lose the cap, it was just inside my pocket. I've switched from v1 to v2 regularly to see if I could make the caps pop off. Never did come off again. I'm at a loss to try to explain why it happened this way. Could it be that the caps start out stiffer or something happens so that they seat better after a few uses?

In any case, both v1 and v2 do a good job. I didnt keep a tally, but v2 did seem to stay on better. The problem did seem to go away over time. Maybe saabluster can explain whether the cap would seat better after a number of uses.

The difference between the two is very subtle. It is on the underside towards the middle. If you look close in profile you will see a little lip that sticks out to help catch on an undercut on the Tri-V. I really don't know why it would start grabbing better over time but it would have to be changes in the coefficient of friction I would think. It may be that there is still a slight bit of mold release on the part that wears off with use or that once dust/lint gathers on the cap from your pocket the friction between the cap and your pocket is reduced. Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Tri-V
lens cap sales thread

Written by fyrstormer on 11-16-2010 01:37 PM GMT

Mold-release seems like a likely explanation. There may also be some cutting oil left on the Tri-V itself, in those areas where fingers are too small to reach in and rub it off. CRC Mass Airflow Sensor Cleaner from the auto parts store does a great job at removing every trace of oil, without damaging plastic. I use it on my lights regularly when I need to do work on them.

I have had the new cap on my Tri-V for three days now and it has not come off once. I take the light out of my pocket quite often. I did see it ride up a little once but was still on there! :)

I also do not have any trouble with the old caps coming off often either.

Been sick for the last couple days. Since I got a good word back I went ahead and made the second new mold and we have started producing in earnest. I haven't sat down to try and figure out an exact shipment schedule but I think we might be able to have them done in about a month.

Thanks again and we appreciate all the great work. Happy Holidays! :)

Reports of my untimely death have been greatly exaggerated. Just been working so hard that there has been zero time to spend on the internet. Here's one reason why.

PICT0900.jpg


I'm in the midst of making a loft in my house. Not an easy project this. There is a bit of urgency in all this though that has lead to me having a laser like focus on getting work done and not spending time on the computer perusing the wonderful halls of CPF.

Meet Sofia.

PICT0902.jpg


I expect her any day now. The house is torn up with construction dust and fiberglass insulation everywhere. I really would prefer to get this done at least to the point where the insulation is all covered up. I don't want Sofia's first month to be spent breathing the stuff in.

That said we have been working on the caps. I ran out of material last week but I got more and we are moving again. Here is what is done so far.

PICT0899.jpg

The ones on the left are ones I am just giving away as freebies as they were from the first batch. They still work so you may end up with one or two extras in your shipment. Thanks for being patient with me everyone. Very much appreciated.

Assuming we keep at the current pace we should be done next week and shipping will begin immediately thereafter. This is with me doing a late night run of caps before I hit the sack. I saved the hardest(titanium) for last since I was dreading having to show Mandy how to do them. Those were also the most popular strangely enough. The only thing that I foresee slowing progress is the arrival of Sofia but Mandy will continue production during the day so the potential delay would not be much.

Well folks every order has shipped save one and that was one received very recently. Thanks again for everyone's patience and I sure hope everyone is pleased with the caps. My advice is to attempt to keep them from direct sun exposure as even thought a UV stabilizer was added to the mix it is still prone to some UV degradation. I will hang on to the molds for a while so if anyone wants more I will try and take care of you. I have an idea of how to attach them to the light as it seems to be a source of befuddlement for some. If I don't get back with you on that in a few days bug me. It's just to late right now for me to try and use the noggin.

BTW I made sure to give everyone an extra cap or two with your order. Enjoy!

I also received my caps today. My favorite is the translucent red cap. Nice snug fit. Thanks, again. Since I have extra's I do have a question. Can my extra caps be stored together? Or do they need to be stored separately? I mention this because I seem to remember that some of my fishing worm plastic baits would melt or fuse together when different plastics touched each other.

I just sent paypal for my order oflens caps. If you are out of any of the colors I ordered please send me a PM or E-mail. There are other colors I like too and I would hate for you to have to make one for my late order. Thanks again for making a great accessory for the Tri-V.

Glad to see people started getting them so soon. Glad you like them as well. Don't forget to thank the one who designed the caps and made the master copy that even made this all possible. ;)

Got the order. It is completed as well but the flu has kept me from the post office all week. Mandy made an interesting goof-up while doing the first run of your glow and the red. She mixed the two together. When lit up it would glow a faint red.

Wow, those glow caps look great. I might have to get a couple. But so far, I'm quite satisfied with my titanium-coloredcap.

I did receive mine the other day, but since I no longer have myTri-V, I never go to use them. So mailed them off to the fellow who bought my light.
Now I miss my Tri-V again

Hello, are these still available to purchase? If any one has a couple extra, can someone help a fellow member out? :anyone:
