    I'm not 100% sure. It depends on how many are ordered, the original plan was to only do 25 units but the machinist agreed to make whatever we need. I just want to make sure I don't take too many orders to affect the estimated ship time.

    That's quick! But yeah, lately everything HDS or HDS related sells quickly

    Preorder is closed! Time to order the reflectors.

    If anyone is curious about how the reflectors are made, it's a fascinating process. I found this interesting paper on the electroforming method used.

    https://garelectroforming.com/downlo...Reflectors.pdf

    In electroforming, the metal can be grown as thick as the customer wants. In the industry, the model on which the metal is built is called a mandrel. The mandrel is typically removed after the completion of the plating process. The mandrel is made from conductive and nonconductive area’s. The metal will only deposit on the conductive area’s. The metal can easily be removed from the mandrel. The result is an autonomous product with holes, slots or any shape you prefer

    Maybe another run in the future?

    I had a couple extra made so it's likely there will be some avilable when the production is complete. If theres a sustained demand and the machinist is willing I have no problem making more.

    Luckily I got one. However, if I like it as much as I think I will I'd order a second. I think you will have the demand for another run or two.

    That is some valuable news - hopefully by that time the COVID-19 crap has calmed down and I will have more time keeping an eye on this thread

    +1

    The current situation has made many gun shy for any extra spending at the moment, myself included. However, I use my HDS’s regularly, and I would love to get one of these. If these are half as good as they look, I can see many more runs happening in the future...
    Now I just have to be patient

    Yep, current downturn is a big factor for me as well, also wish to see some beam shots before deciding. However, doubling the lux is not going to cut it for me to qualify for pocket thrower, when I have 70k lux MDC for that purpose. I may change my mind later, but for now flood and compactness prevail.

    I was wondering how many companies are working on this project. Ie. is one shop making the bezel, head/anodizing and reflector.

    There is the machinist, anodizer, reflector manufacturer, and lens source.
