Well, I placed an order for a Cody tail cap, a King Turbine head & bezel, a Checkers body, and a Custom Triple Copper Pill. I called and changed the body style to ripples instead because I plan on keeping the light polished and it will be easier to polish the ripples. The lady that answered the phone was very nice and very enthusiastic about everything that’s going on with the hosts…I wish you guys the best of luck and hopefully I can get some folks on my end to bite on these Big Smile .

It’s copper, who would want to polish it??? It is all about the patina!

I purchased the bare aluminum head, body, tail, and a copper triple pill. I’m not a patina person…I like all of my lights to look new, lol.

I got the same just different style body parts. I want to carry and actually use mine! I love copper but if I dropped it or dented it up, I would be pissed! All my copper lights are just collecting DUST, but they look good doing it!!!

Many Thanks to DJ and ALL!!! We are pumping these out…. more copper to arrive Wednesday…. I appreciate each and every one of you guys.

We may just have to do a “Give Away”. Thumbs Up I’ll ask the boss lady. Thats who you talked to …. NICE!!! She is as mean as a snake! Beautiful snake But….

Thanks Again. TL

EDIT…… You are correct for polishing…. Ripples is better. That Checkers likes to hang on!!!…..Hard to really make that one shine. Wink

Thanks Glenn,

Steve, if you’ll help me catch up… I’ll move to Aussie Land!!

Whew! We ran 14.5 hours today…. ummmm…. minus a sandwitch break of 15 minutes. For those that have ordered, please hang in there with us. We had stock made but “Happily” not enough. We were forced to return 60’ of copper stock as it was so beat up, it simply could not be used. The replacement is to arrive tomorrow evening.

Thanks Guys!! TL

You mean I’d have to do work? Maybe I’ve had second thoughts. Silly

TexasLumens are you going to try to stick to specific thread sizes for the most mixing and matching options?

Maybe y’all can clear me up on something.

I haven’t been a P60 fan for quite a while now. But you know, I just HAD to have a full Cu TL flashlight, right? So, if I’m thinking of building a copper head to screw onto the bezel threads and house a larger reflector with a copper driver bay extension fitted into the P60 area of the TL battery tube, is that wrong?

Might not even be able to do that, with what’s on my plate, but my thoughts want to make it bigger, badder, meaner. Big Smile

I must really be getting old. I remember when “post some pics” would have meant sending pictures via USPS. Facepalm

I called my 9 yr old by my 30 yr old’s name this evening. UGH!

Will do, if I can remember how to work the Brownie…
