Seems interesting. Would like to get at least 2pcs, but hoping shipping fee will not be “too” expensive, since I’m on the opposite side of the USA..

It probably is best not to state your interest here. It just clogs the useful information in the thread and could lead to people thinking that’s the proper way to sign up.

Can not edit form. I’am interested in 2 pcs.

I think we can decrease shipping cost for Europe if make 1 package from US to Europe, and than shipping within Europe.

In for 1! I’m also interested in drivers for other flashlights like D4 or some single emitter flashlights! Is it possible?

added my interest in one possibly two in row 52. I’ll check later to make sure it stuck. Thanks for sharing this well thought out driver design. That Aux led board look very nice. I’d pay double if one could be bundled in.

Is it possible to change our initial quantity? If so, I added a comment to my order to that effect.

Hello everyone, I just wanted to say a big thanks to all for being patient with the Google Spreadsheets! I know it's not the best of interfaces but we definitely have enough for a good group order, and I appreciate all the time you took to fill this in! 

Suffice to say there are some updates coming up and I'm working through them!

Thanks for doing this Loneoceans!
I know you’ve stated before about not doing any aux boards, but given the amount of interest in them, is this something you’d consider?

The preorder for the mokume / Damast versions of the FW3A indicate plans to use this driver and auxiliary lights: https://www.nealsgadgets.com/collections/lumintop/products/lumintop-fw3a...

Does this mean Lumintop is going to manufacture these? Any impact on this potential group buy? If nothing else, I would really appreciate it if we could get a Lumintop spring attached. Ideally, loneoceans gets paid for his hard work and these become widely available at a reasonable price Smile

Hello everyone,

Many thanks to all the people who have expressed interest!

There have been some new developments which I think benefit everyone. Neal from Nealsgadgets came across this project and expressed interest, so we are now working on a collaboration for Neal and his team to produce the lume1 drivers. Because of their significantly higher volume capability, they will be able to get the drivers at a lower cost than this group buy, and probably with much better shipping logistics and cost as well! 

We hadn't finalized the details, pricing etc yet, so I was planning to get those details finalized before posting. However, as asdqqq pointed out, it looks like Neal has mentioned this driver in the limited edition run of FW3 flashlights. The plan is to also for Neal to be able to offer these drivers as a standalone driver for sale. We are currently working on the details for manufacturing and so on, so please hang tight. Eventually, the idea is to be able to purchase these drivers directly from www.nealsgadgets.com, and also possibly in future flashlights. 

Thanks and please look forward to more details coming up!

So if Neal is going to be handling this, and he has links with Lumintop, does that mean the springs will either come installed or at least available to purchase?

Good point Scallywag. Component quality should be maintained.
