WTS BLF LT1 Lantern side shades (3D printed)

Hi folks,

Following the positive feedback on the prototypes I am happy to produce more clip on shades,

I’ve printed two different types in PETG material which seems quite durable. As these are 3D printed, the surface finish is not perfect, but they are pretty decent. The black edition stops all light, whilst the grey lets through enough to be used as a position marker. (I personally like the grey version)

The cost is £2 per shade to cover my printing cost.

Postage is (up to 4 shades per package) via Royal Mail (2nd class domestic) or international standard

UK = £4
Europe = £9
USA = £10
Canada = £9
Worldwide = Please PM me (probably about £12)

Please comment or PM me and I will give you my Paypal details.

Thanks for all the interest so far, got about a dozen packages shipping around the world!

I’m only able to print about 3 per day (takes 3h each print), I will update this post with stock levels

Currently have 3 x Black Available (19/03/21)

now put reflective tape on the inside surface.
bounces light back though the diffuser instead of wasting it.
might allow you to run it a bit lower and get better runtime.

Good idea snakebite. Could get a can of that mirror spray as well. Presently I have black tape on one of the lanterns. Pretty unattractive. I’d get one of these clipons but shipping to USA would make it a bit too pricey, for me anyway. It’s a nice design.

Would it make sense for several of us from the US to order together to save on shipping? I only need one, but really want that one.

If Big Sam is willing to share the stl file you could probably get someone local to print it for you. I can’t imagine he’s doing it for the money at that price.
