    Default FS: Titanium / Tritium pendants - key fobs

    Moved to CPFMP from this thread on CPF proper: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=251798

    I've run a few batches of these before but had to stop for a while. Long story short, I now have all the equipment to machine these at home and I'd like to run another batch.

    Options:
    1: # of sides
    - 3
    - 4
    - 6

    2: Slot style
    - single with holes
    - double

    3: Tritium color
    - I can install anything currently available from Merkava. Currently he has Green, yellow, blue and pink.

    Prices:
    3 or 4 slot, $110
    6 slot, $155


    I will discount $12 for anyone who has an existing vial they'd like to use. The vial needs to be 23*3mm, and shipped to me (I'm not responsible for damage during shipment)

    Payment: I'd prefer to use USPS money orders. I don't really like the new fees that are associated with paypal.

    Shipment: USPS with delivery confirmation.

    I'd like to keep shipping within the US, but I'll work with people on an individual basis to accommodate outside the US. Once the package leaves my hands I'm not responsible for any damage or shipping delays.

    The lead time will be how long it takes for the vials to get from Merkava to me. I've had them come in as little as a few days and as long as 2.5 weeks. I will machine the titanium on a per order basis, so there should be no hold up there.

    I will order the vials in batches of 5 so when we have the first 5 committed buyers, I'll put in the trit order and get everything rolling.

    The vials are sealed from the environment, and I've dropped mine several times with out vial damage.

    The pendants have a glass bead blasted finish. They are 3/8" diameter and ~2" long. They will have a stainless steel split ring installed on the end. All the pendants are manually machined and there are slight variations.

    Here is an example of a double slot with 6 sides (no vial installed):



    Here are a 4 side and 6 side single with holes (again, no vial installed)


    And here is a group shot with and with out background light:




    I won't take any payment until the titanium is machined and the vials are installed and ready to ship. This covers both the buyer and myself in case of unforeseen machining issues or tritium shipment delays.

    So far the current batch belong to the following members:

    Wtserg: 4 sided single with holes, green vial
    bnemmie: 6 sided double, green vial
    skunknuts79: 4 sided single with holes, orange vial
    Noctis: six sided single with holes, green vial
    Barefootone: 4 sided single with holes, green vial


    I placed the order for vials with Merkava yesterday and already have part of the machining complete. I will update with a group photograph later this week.

    Sorry, I missed your question in the previous thread. The pendent does not come with a lanyard, and I do not have any to offer for sale.

    More pictures?

    I ordered a nice titanium chain necklace for a nice titanium pendant.

    I know I shouldn't have, but I feel like having some quality metal around my neck might help lift my mood a bit given the usual utterly unacceptable BS at work.

    Ryan,

    Aren't they getting the two high lite rings at the top and bottom as shown in your picture below?





    I think the two high lite rings really help set it off and make it pop .

    Yes they will all get the rings, but I need to add that after blasting otherwise the rings would not be shiny

    As a matter of fact, the green vials arrived today. I should be able to get everything together on or before Wednesday night, and will be able to ship on Thursday.

    I need to run everything back through the bead blaster again to clean them up, and I can't do it until Monday evening.

    I will send out PM's to everyone as well as update this thread when they're ready to go.

    Wtserg: 4 sided single with holes, green vial
    bnemmie: 6 sided double, green vial
    Noctis: six sided single with holes, green vial
    Barefootone: 4 sided single with holes, green vial

    The batch is finished and ready to ship. Although I prefer USPS MO, paypal is okay as well. I have everything ready to go, and will ship tomorrow afternoon if I receive paypal before noon (EDT). All pieces will go USPS priority.

    After tomorrow, I'll be able to ship the day after I receive payment (unless it's a Saturday in which case it'll go out Monday).



    Individual PM's are on the way to the members above.
    ** Edit everyone should now have a PM, bnemmie is the exception mentioned in the proceeding post.
    I also have one extra 4 sided single with a white vial left over from this run, $110 shipped priority (shown on the far right of the 2 pics below), It is a white vial, my camera gives it a slight blue tint.

    As soon as a few more orders roll in I'll put in another order for vials.

    bnemmie,
    I can not send a PM to you. Please send me an email: g1k@roadrunner.com

    Include your CPF handle and I'll reply back with payment instructions. I remember you mentioned travel around the gulf region, so I won't be worried if I do not hear back right away.

    Just got my pendant today. It's very nicely done and feels just right.

    I really feel like I'm drowning in a pool of nostalgia as I think back to those old Smallville episodes, and I feel like I'm wearing kryptonite around my neck.

    Cheers.

    I was hoping for blue and pink. Maybe green and pink.
    Something and pink. If I don't get the pink one for the wife, I can't safely get me one!

    I don't have either of those three colors, but I will place an order in the next 7 days. What styles do you want and I can begin the machining.
