    Thank you! I've always been into the good looking and clean internals as well as externals mentality, so I just hope people enjoy these as much as we do.

    Both lights sold. I'm heading in to machine some more tomorrow and will update again shortly.

    Thanks!

    I'm currently at the shop catching up, but also machined a new design purely for testing purposes. Made 2 of them to torture test the wireless internals of the light (we'll release videos soon). Everything is the same as the Tiny Nugget except it has thicker walls on all sides and more aggressive milling marks for grip. I can make more of these if needed, just wanted to see if there's any interest. I'm calling it the TinyTank. Pictured left below (Tiny Nugget and pen for size reference):



    I've also been making more 18650s, 21700s, and 18350s this trip, so I will be contacting those on the list and posting again soon.

    Thanks,
    Fraz

    When my turn arrives on the list, I'll take a Tiny Tank. I like it! I will also take it unanodized if possible. Looks like a good design for wet hands for a better grip.

    Those forward flutes give it a revolver cylinder look; nice!

    When the time is right for you to create a single 26650 light that can take a long protected cell (close to 700mm), I will be hoping you can make one with visible/slightly tactile radial milling marks from aggressive tooling. That, and a 4500-5000K not too rosy, not too yellow or green tint and perhaps natural anodizing (with no concern about possible mismatched color between body, bezel and tailcap). Definitely got a credit card or PayPal for that. I would accept dyed black anodizing, but a fella can dream, right?

    I think I can make those things happen... Now that we're back at the shop we're gonna be up there as much as possible.

    Thank you! I'm going to add this light to the lineup likely. I've been testing it the last couple days and have really grown to like it myself. The very small amount of extra bulk isn't really noticable imo.

    We've been torture-testing the TinyTank the last couple days. This light has really grown on me....and it can take a massive amount of punishment so far. I've also gotten a couple really good data points from the high-impact testing we've been doing. Below is a small video of some of the testing for those interested. Baseball season...

    I'm very glad you like it! And I'll be more than happy to que those lights up for you. Thanks again for the Tiny Nugget purchase. Please let me know if you have any additional comments/questions about it....the 'instruction manual' along with the light is an ever-evolving thing.

    We've been machining more lights again this week and hope to have a decent supply built up by the time I go back home (my house is in a different town than the machines i rent). All I'm waiting on now is the optics for the Tiny Nuggets and more lights will be ready to be checked off the list. In the meantime, here is a torture test video that is one of the nastier ones I've done. I don't think there would be many lights that can hold up to this kind of impact. And the battery (which I was worried about) actually took no damage at all. Here is the Flashlight-golf-tee test....

    Thank you - actually made pretty good contact with that one....little 3 yard draw over the railroad tracks....

    Looking forward to assembling your light!

    That's what we are going for! The lack of electronics really lets you stretch the limits of the durability of design.

    Glad you do . Please let me know if you have any comments - with this new design I want to get all the feedback I can and continue to make the design better every time we go to the shop.

    I read about the grim results of the first trials of 6061 armor....but still...

    That's a great idea! I was considering bird shot, but I never considered machining a plate-carrier.... Start with .22 and go up!


    Thanks guys,

    Had a productive week in the shop. Pictured below are some of the units we finished (these have not yet been anodized). Pictured from left to right are the Lumenite 18650, Tiny Nugget 18500 (a new addition), TinyTank 18350, and Tiny Nugget 18350. The Tanks and Nuggets are very similar except for the increased wall thicknesses of the Tank. A Tank is also pictured below by itself. I will begin contacting some more people on the list tonight. If they don't respond, these lights will go up first-come-first-serve. We will continue to work the way down the list and it should start to pick up speed as we get the scale more efficient.







    Thanks,
    Fraz
