    Hi PhotonFanatic,

    Just came across this thread. Is it too late to join the queue if I have my own H3?

    I'm expecting delivery of a 18mm and would be interested in a large brass with alternating matte/bright grooves and a dome top.

    Possible?

    I'm sure I can cement the sphere into the housing myself..

    Cheers,

    Rick

    Rick,

    Sure, no problem since you have your own sphere, although delivery time may be stretched out a bit since I've already started most of the bodies and need to complete those first.

    Just wanted to report that the Trit spheres have safely arrived. I'll be working on the Luci as soon as possible--need to complete the Block Boy builds first.

    Bummer, I just found this thread... . These Luci look very cool - great job on the machining as they are works of art. Please let me know if you ever do a second run of these.

    Btw, I also found your other thread about the A-Z building of the Ti light - awesome work!
    Looking for: jhanko 'biohazard' V10R Ti clip, Luce de Notte (SS / Ti), SF Z2 (body, complete light, bored, unbored). Pls PM me with an offer.

    Just a quick update to let everyone know that I am now working more intently on the Luci, now that the Blocky Boys are done and shipped.

    The spheres all arrived safely from B@rt; all the bodies had been made earlier; the threads are being cut on the polycarbonate tops and when those are done, the domes will be shaped.

    Final detail work will involve some buffing where appropriate and final installation of the Tritium sphere and assembly of the light. Shouldn't be too much longer.

    I take it that you don't have your own Tritium sphere? In that case, back-up would be the best position for now.

    E-mail replied, but, basically, sure, if one has a sphere, I'm happy making the Luce body. Just deduct $40 from the prices shown in the first post, if you are supplying either sized sphere.

    XFlash,

    Just want to be sure you understand the you aren't just getting a spot--you would be getting the same light that Illum_the_nation had signed up for--namely, a small AL Luce, since the body and dome have already been made. You could opt to have it made as a two-tone version, and you can indicate your first choice of Trit color, either Ice Blue or Green.

    If that's not what you were looking for, let us know, please.

    No problem, two-tone, with Ice Blue Trit.

    Default Re: Now Taking Payments: Luce de Notte (unless you have an H3 sphere already)

    The time has come to start taking payments for the Luci. I believe I can get these out to everyone within the next two weeks, hopefully sooner.

    But if push comes to shove, I may take longer, as I like to make sure that the finish on these is what I like, like this one for Kiessling. Hope you like shiny, Bernie!




    For those who wonder, the large holes in the bottom of the light are for a lanyard attachment, or multiple lanyards, if Kiessling so desires.

    Since the tailcap is SS, obviously there is no light emanating from the tailcap end of this light, unlike most other Luci. The light on this version exits at the front, where the three rings of dimples are.

    Thanx for that beauty !!!

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.
