    Default Malkoff junkies! Assemble! Again... N219B M361 3000K/3500K

    For those of you who couldn't, or didn't, get in on the first round of M361 drop-ins, I am doing a second round. It will be very similar to the first, but I am just going to make all the decisions and front all of the money again. If I can get a solid 20 people to agree to purchase, I will put in an order with Malkoff to make 30 drop-ins. I will have to get pricing and whatnot at a later date, but sufficiely to say, you do want one of these (again).

    What: Malkoff M361 drop-in
    Where: Right here!
    When: As soon as I can get a solid 20 people. Extras will be sold beyond the secured spots in this GB thread.
    Why: Because who doesn't love high CRI 3 mode malkoff?

    Emitter: Nichia 219B SW30 D180 L2 R9080
    Second Emitter: Nichia 219B SW35 D200 L2 R9080

    How the breakdown will probably be: 25 SW30's and 10-15 SW35's. I will be fronting all of the money, so it is hard to put forth more than about 2.5k or so for all of the drop-ins. This is a labor of love, and I won't be making money off of the drop-ins. More info to follow.

    --------------------------UPDATE--------------------------

    I just got off the phone with Gene. Construction for the drop-ins are going to be $70/each. I can get the emitters for $3ish/LED, plus shipping to and from everywhere.

    PRICE: I will get these to everyone for $75 + actual shipping for everything combined, which is $8.30 for a small flat rate box + LED shipping + gene shipping to me. Multiple drop-ins obviously will be only one flat rate box, but the cost of all the shipping costs will be divided evenly between all of the group buy drop-ins, however many that is.

    Phase 1 ĖSign-Up:


    - Indicate your willingness to participate in the group buy by posting the following in the comments: ďIím in for QTY xĒ
    - Posting that you want to participate is a firm commitment to buy. Others are depending on you! Donít indicate that youíre going to participate if youíre ďjust thinking about it.Ē Think about it first, then decide, then sign-up.
    - Sign-up will last through 0001 hours on March 1st, 2021.
    - If we donít get to 20, then I will still buy the drop-ins on my own dime, but sell them at a higher price per dropin in a FS thread


    20 is the minimum and I will do my best to include everyone who signs up prior to [s]March 1st.[/s] 15 April


    Phase 2 Ė Pre-Pay:


    - No pre-pay! If you don't pay when the drop-ins come in within 7 days of "THERE ARE HERE" in this thread, you lose your reserved spot. I will finalize spots at the end of phase 1. Feel free to sell/trade/whatever your spots from phase 1, but there are a limit of the number of LEDs I can buy. My source doesn't have that many available, but it should be plenty for this group buy.


    Phase 3 Ė Manufacturing:


    - Once the deadline ends, I will be shipping the LEDs to Gene and he will do his thing. No more extras, or "oh snap, I didn't know this was happening, can I still get in?" I will be reserving a few extras if there is lack luster.


    Phase 4 Ė Shipping to you:


    - This phase starts when I receive the package from Gene.
    - Small flat rate boxes are 8.30/box. I can probably shove 8 dropins into one flat rate box. I will not ship via bubble envelopes. I have recieved bubble envelopes with the springs broken off, crushed whats it called, etc. Boxes are easier and better.
    - I will PM you the tracking number after I ship. Shipping is CONUS only.
    - I will provide an option for insurance, if you want to pay extra for this.
    - Once I ship to you and provide a tracking number, Iím out of the loop. Iím not responsible for lost or delayed items once USPS is in possession of your drop-in. If youíre worried about this, I will provide an option for USPS insurance.

    Design: This will have the dropins numbered. Person 1 on the next post will have 1 of xx, person 2 will have 2 of xx, etc. I will keep the thread list updated as often as I can.

    The dropins will be engraved as follows: M361-CPF N219B 3000k #xx of xx

    I am going to limit the total group buy however. There will be a set number of drop-ins that CAN be produced, and I am going to save two or three extra LED's for problems etc. with the manufacturing process. I am going to reserve a few extras for sale after for those rare few who don't check for GB's within the month and a half before I close the GB. I did not do this last time and I felt bad for those that really wanted one but the modules were already sent off to the factory. These extras will be sold at a slightly higher price however, so get in on the group buy!

    Are these still using PWM? Do we know lumen levels? Thanks.

    She will handle up to 6 volts but not recommend for high mode. One lithium is where are you want to be with this one.

    We need a total of 20 dropins for the group buy. However we get across the line is all that matters. I thought there would be a higher demand for the 3000/3500K than there is now. Maybe I need to add M361 N219B 3000K to the title to generate new traffic.

    Oh man, you guys are in for a treat! I have one of the last GB m361 219 warm drop ins and it is truly wonderful. Not a barn burner but still plenty bright on high. And a lovely incan-like high cri light. Donít remember if they were 219b or C last time, though.

    Ok gents. I just got back from my Lear Jet type rating and happily, we are at around 18. I will be putting in an order officially on the 17th (new credit card billing cycle) so we will have maximum time before the bill comes due for them. As it stands right now, we will be making a total of 18 total dropins, eight (8) 3000K, and ten (10) 3500K.

    THIS IS THE LAST CALL. If you want any more drop-ins, you have until the morning of the 17th to make your reservation for a drop-in. I will be purchasing 2 of each extra, if I have the LEDs, for those that "claim" they didn't see this group buy, but the price will be cost + $15 + shipping since I have no idea how long I am going to be holding onto these drop-ins.

    ONE AGAIN THE ORDER WILL BE PLACED ON THE 17TH APX 1000 PDT AND YOU HAVE UNTIL THEN TO MAKE ANY CHANGES!

    If you want to make absolutely sure your order gets processed by me, send me an email. It is my username on these forums @gmail. I also get PM notifications but no notifications in this thread, but you can do all three and one of the ways I will get it. If for some reason you did try to contact me, and I didn't get it before the order is placed, and I can verify that, you will get the GB price instead of +$15. It will just come out of the small stockpile I will have available.

    ETA: is there any way that I can make the letters flash or something?

    Hey guys. Sorry for the super late response. I have been super busy with work and other projects with the kid and whatnot. I havenít had a chance to send the LEDs off (which is part of the reason I donít take money until I have the items in hand.) this is still in my list, but I have to go find the LEDs and then send them off. I will update you as soon as I can and I have new information.
