    Thanks, Data. Not quite in the same league as the SPY, but a lot of fun making them.

    Fred,

    I'd be interested in a alum version, knurled, domed, blue trit. I tried posting to the 2nd run thread, but it would not let me for some strange reason. Please let me know what I owe you and when you need payment.

    Thanks,
    Flavio

    Flavio,

    No need to send money until I've built the Luce to your specs, which might be a while, since I have to order them through B@rt (he's about to place an order soon) and then his supplier usually takes a fair amount of time to deliver to B@rt.

    I will eventually start a list in the Second Run thread and will add your name there, thanks.

    Fred,

    I did not specify, but if possible I want mine to be green H3. If not no worries.

    Also, if possible I would prefer to have a flat Luce instead of the dome. If not no worries.

    Mine looks the best!

    Fin,

    Your Luce was shipped this morning, with the hemispherical tailcap, sorry.

    As for the color of the Trit--I don't remember which color you received, to be honest. Short-term memory loss--comes with the territory.

    That last one that looks like some kind of a torpedo is way cool! Does that one have an 18mm sphere in it to account for it's size?

    You got it. In retrospect, that was the first 18mm sphere that was being installed and it just seemed that a larger reflector was needed, but after having made it, I now think the 27mm is fine, too.

    I don't want to tell you how many hours I worked on that. I'll post a shot of the front bezel later.

    olrac,

    Anything is possible, if you are willing to pay for it.

    Fact is, I've just started building your Luce, so having an extra tail cap made now would be the best possible timing.

    Fred, Nix the second cap, both of my daughters said to stick with the flat top and they definately have a better sense of style than I do. So Flat it is!

    Thanks

    Wow, and I never heard of the Daleks until today. All I need to do now is install a couple of Tritium vials in the hemispherical tailcap and we'll be blood brothers:

    Fred that is amazing work. Now you got me thinking. Is it possible to machine the junction between the special tailcap your making for me and the light body to accept a o-ring for the purpose of providing a better handhold for the light?

    John,

    While an O-ring that protrudes can be done, I don't think you would really gain that much--the grooves on the Luce really provide a lot of 'grip' as is. But it's your call.
