This thread will be to announce sales that are currently running at the shop and for new products. You may also bring your questions comments and requests to this thread.
In an effort to make purchases from the store as easy as possible I have incorporated social login buttons including PayPal, Facebook, Google and Yahoo at the top of the home page. Using this you can instantly create an account using your existing information stored on those sites.
Sale items and new product will be posted below. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
I’ve been looking at your builds and the only thing stopping me is two sons in college and the big pay cut I took at work. Your builds are top notch and soon the XHP-70 dropin will be mine. I do wish you the best in your start up in building a company. So far your reputation around here will carry you far. Yes people his stuff is that good and then some.
Only $27.85 now, and it doesn't increase with quantity anymore, at least for the small stuff I tried like LEDs & the heat sink. The XHP70 Mag light is 32.40 for one, 36.54 for two, 43.55 for three. (Not actually considering buying three of those. )
Ah, I see. There was no options for shipping until I went further down the checkout path. After entering my address again (Why collect it at registration if not to use it as a possible shipping address?) I get a page with shipping options. For one 10mm xp sinkpad the options are:
USPS First Class - $2.74
USPS Priority Mail - $6.40
USPS Priority Mail Express - $27.85
$3.14 for one heat sink, $3.54 for two...
Sorry for the trouble, I'll learn to use the Internetz someday.
Hey, no problem at all man. I'm just glad it worked out. Presta shop is really a good platform, but the changes that do need to be made can be difficult. Some of which even require rewriting of base code etc.
The truth is you were still right, there is a small glitch. Once you have logged in I see no reason why the system should wait until checkout to recalculate the shipping cost. I would like to get this fixed as well because if it happened to you it has probly happened to others. Some of which would just move on.
There is not a thread for use of the sink at this time, but if you run into any issue you can inquire in this thread. They are a fairly simple build since the emitter and driver holes are engineered for readily available parts. About the only other thing that needs to be done is removing the Mag switch tower and soldering leads.
Right, it's not a problem for returning customers but for someone researching on the internet and seeing that without any indication that there will be options presented later will move on. Imagine someone presented with that registering an account, and heading down the checkout path on hopes of finding a reasonable shipping option.Not gonna happen.
I just trued disassembling a Mag. How so you get out that retaining ring? I've never seen that style before without holes for regular retaining ring pliers. Is there a different type out there somewhere or is it proprietary to Mag?
It has so far defied my attempts. Perhaps a pair of needle-nose pliers could be re-ground to fit but there must be an easier way.
How long is the sale going on? I'm a little nervous ordering before I can even open these Mags.
I always drop the switch out the bottom of the light first ( there is a hex key hole in the center of it). Once that is done I take a flat head screw driver and lift up under one end of the snap ring. Once in a while you will have to put a second screw driver in through the switch hole to keep the ring from spinning long enough to pop it out, but usually this is not needed.
The sale is scheduled to conclude Monday of next week.
