    We are getting close with the quantity!! A dozen or so more and we should be a goer. I am also in the process of getting a price for the "sleeve" and will publish it here as soon as I get a confirmation.

    What are your thoughts if I offered the Hotlips-C and the Sleeve as a single unit (ie Hotlips-C and Sleeve sold as one) instead of offering a choice? The price will be slightly higher and it will also give you the flexibility. It would be much easier for me to organise (logistically and also get a good price for all). Also you can choose whatever OAC you want to use.

    Also, would everyone be willing to do a Paypal first (after I confirm the final price that is)? I will time the manufacture so that the Hotlips-C would be ready approximately 2-3 weeks after your Paypal.

    Your thoughts please.

    I have no objection to paying up front. I don't need the sleeve, but if that is how it has to be done, then that's okay with me.

    Thanks.

    Just for bookkeeping, at hotbeam's request, I have placed a pre-order for one bare hotlips "C" heatsink (smaller dia. with no sleeve).

    Put me down for 2 C hotlips. I don't really need the sleeves but I don't mind having them either. Also, I'd like a D size - a sleeve to adapt the C size would be nice....

    Thank you for all your pre-orders. I will sort this list out and get back here with the next steps...

    Thanks for your pre-orders. Looks like this will be a go-er. I am waiting for final costings for the Sleeve as well as the production prototypes. Once everything meets with approval, I will post the details here.

    If at all possible, I would greatly appreciate prepayment for this. If you are also getting the Hotlips-D, please let me know also. Combined shipping will be done for lowish quantities (<6-8).

    A quick summary:

    <ul type="square">[*]Hotlips-C will be 26.3mm in diameter[*]The Sleeve will allow Hotlips-C to be used on 28.1mm ID C-sized Ontario Aluminium bodies (OAC). It will be a tight fit, allowing for maximum thermal transfer.[/list]
    Price for the first Hotlips-C is $20 shipped, subsequent ones at $16.
    Pricing for Sleeves $3

    Yeah, I know, it is strange. I wanted a purple 2C Mag, and I finally found one at Home Depot. I did not know about the id change at that point, so I did not check the serial number. I can go by the same store and check the SNs on the other lights that they have.

    It is a pretty busy Home Depot, but maybe the lights don't sell very well, so it could be old stock. I don't know how long Mag has been making the purple 2C's...mostly I see Black or Silver.

    Is anyone planning on running a 5 W on a Hotlips, on two BadBoys paralleled, in a 2 C cell Mag?

    Along with the Hotlips-D v2 run, Hotlips-C will also be run at the same time ~w/b 8th Sept.
    There will be 2 pieces, the Hotlips-C and a Sleeve
    <ul type="square"> [*]Hotlips-C will have a diam of 26.3mm and fits tightly in new OACs (serial # starts with C).
    Cost: $20 for 1 shipped. Additional at $16 (up to 5)
    [*]The Sleeve will take the 26.3mm diam to 28.1mm to fit tightly into older OACs.
    Cost: $3.[/list]

    Please keep an eye on this thread for more in due course.

    If by chance you end up have some extra ones I would like to change my order to 3 for the C size with the sleeves and still order one D size.

    led-lurker... no problems. I have commissioned additional (over and above the pre-order numbers) Hotlips-C plus Sleeves to be made so your extra requirements can be accommodated without any problems. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Howard,

    Count me in for the Hotlips-C with a sleeve. Now I just need to find a X3T with a magic resistor set up for my little 2-C maggie ?

    Do you know where I can find it ?

    Later

    Has anyone have a pet collimator they know they will be using with the C cell? I am pretty sure I will be using the Badboy 750mA Constant Current Boost Converter Board with a Sapphire lens in a 6 cell, but haven't decided on what collimating optics to use.

    Any help will be appreciated. The less I have to modify it the better.

    thanks

    using a mag reflector is your best bet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    the hotlips were designed to use the mag reflector, and accomplish a wide range of focus [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    furthermore, a mag reflector is pretty much the best optical solution currently known (much better than any "optics")

    Sway: Thanks for your preorder. I am not sure whether I replied to you earlier. Apologies for the long delay if I haven't. The X3T is not for sale currently as a standalone. The MR circuit has sold out in run one. We may be planning a run two in a few weeks. Please keep an eye on the MR-X with X3T thread.

    Led: Per Roth. Thanks Roth. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Update:

    There has been a machine breakdown just before my job was to run (of all things) and the lathe is being fixed as I type. They said it would be ~1wk before it is fixed (parts, manpower, etc). They also need to finish the job that was on the lathe at the time. I would estimate ~2 wks from today before they will get to this Hotlips run. Rest assured though... the jobs will definately run as my Aluminium rod has already arrived. Just need to get them on the lathe and milling machines.

    Apologies for the delay [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    The prototypes are here. I've been told the production run will finish in ~2 wks time.
