Thread: Silent Auction to help Moltenmag

  1. #1

    Default Silent Auction to help Moltenmag

    One of our members here has had a rough time. He and his family survived Hurricane Michael, though he has had to sell off his flashlight collection (and other things) in order to raise funds after the devastation that hit.


    I spoke with Henry, and we decided to have 2 silent auctions, the proceeds of which will go directly to Matt (Moltenmag). In fact, the winners will be PayPalling him directly while I will be shipping the items.


    First up is an HDS horizontal holster with red tritium insert donated by Thorís Hammer Custom Leather. Along with this is a white diffuse reflector assembly with silver bezel and UCL. This will be auctioned as a set (itís the old white diffuse reflector).


    Second is an Action Light. This is one of three Action Lights that has been outside of Henryís home for the last 18 years as a durability test. It is the green one (top right). The battery is starting to go so it blinks on the maximum level, but low and medium work fine. Itís a piece of history. It comes ďas isĒ. If you can find a battery, high will work.


    To bid on the first auction, the subject line must be: Holster/Bezel
    To bid on the second, the subject line must be: Oldactionlight


    The only thing in the body of the email should be your bid.


    email bids to: silentauctionlight@gmail.com


    Ask any questions here as others may have the same question you have.


    The bidding will end on December 19th, 2018 at noon Tucson time, and the winner will be posted along with the amount that won. I will email the winner the PayPal address for Matt as the funds will go directly to him.


    You will be responsible to pay for shipping (I will be doing the shipping and it will be at the actual cost of shipping, so if you want snail mail, airmail, or priority, it is up to you. Keep in mind that these will ship from Tucson, USA, and even at cost shipping can be steep outside of CONUS.


    This is simply a way for us to help a member in need. Thank you!



    Modernflame has graciously added this holster to the holster and bezel above!
    Read further on in the thread for specifics!





    BVH has graciously added these 3 lights to the Action Light auction.

    Eagtac D25C Titanium with holster, stainless Clip and box.



    Manker E14 Copper with extra 18650 body, clip and lanyard and box.



    Olight S1 Baton with Blue trim, clip and lanyard.

    May I contribute an item for auction? I have a vertical carry HDS holster from Thor's Hammer. If that's okay, I can post photos or send them so that you can add them to the original post. I'll ship the item to the winner according to the shipping rules outlined above.

    Edit: The holster was given to me by a very generous member of this forum. I figure that auctioning it off would make the most of his gesture.

    I just wanted to say there has only been 1 bid on 1 item.
    Thought there would be a bigger response than this.

    I donít think itís a lack of desire to help a member if thatís your thought.

    Perhaps, an idea - Not to tell you how to run things, but in silent auctions Iíve been a part of in the past, while the bids were anonymous, the current bid was made known. It generates excitement and lets people know they have a shot at winning. For example, the Action Light sounds so cool to have, but my perception was that a Big Time HDS Collector would bid $500 for it so I didnít even bother sending in a bid since I didnít think I could afford it. Just a thought.

    I am going to post the high bids every day at noon Tucson time (or close to noon) so the last high bid will be posted around that time on the 18th... a day before the bidding ends.

    This is a vertical carry custom HDS holster with a belt clip from Thor's Hammer. The dragon's eye is a tritium insert and the inside is lined, but I'm not sure what the material is. Maybe Dan can remember. Finger cut outs provide access to the flashlight and the face of the holster provides complete protection. It also works well with other 1" diameter lights, such as a Malkoff MD2, in a bezel up configuration. I've never carried it outside of the house. The condition is like new.


    Again, this was given to me by a well known and respected CPF member. Paying this forward on his behalf.

    That is Fenrir, and I believe it is lined in black suede. Here are the original pictures of it after it was made:

    Will these items be split into multiple auctions or just lumped into two? I am interested in the Action Light but donít necessarily need other lights if they could be of interest to others. Given that they are shipping from multiple locations is it easier to lump them or auction separately? Iím in favor of whatever nets Moltenmag the most money!

    the first auction is holsters, more than one, plus the diffuse reflector

    yes
    Just two auctions, but not just one item per auction..

    Suggestion
    Once someone wins an auction and chooses the particular item(s) they want to keep, we can put the items we dont want on the classifieds, and could potentially also donate those funds to moltenmag, since the auction winners will have his paypal info..

    I for example am only interested in the diffuse reflector, so when I win the holster auction, I will be offering to redistribute the holsters.

    this saves Hogo from managing more than 2 auctions, and still allows individual items to be sold separately, still to benefit moltenmag.

    Yes, just the two auctions. I have to try it keep it simple. I'm old and things get busy this time of year.

    As of right now, both auctions high bids are...

    Holsters/Bezel $150
    Actionlight $150

    I might suggest as well that people use odd numbers as there are a couple ties for the high bid... add some pennies or something. Think eBay but without the bad experience.

    As the proud owner of a similar Fenrir holster, I can speak for the Wow factor. The quality of materials and workmanship goes without saying but these are special...
