Well I have scored two LionCub kits and two DragonHeart kits.  So, now what?  Hehe.  I'm a bit out of my depth here.  I have never assembled a light and am wondering how to go about it.  Is there a pictorial/tutorial showing how to assemble a Cub or DragonHeart? 

Other questions that come to mind are:  What wire to use to use?  I want to update the emitter to a P4, What bin number will provide the whitest, brightest light using the Cub converter?  What VF is recommended?  Where do I get them?  What adhesive or insulating gel do I use to affix the Star?  What else do I need to know?

I really want to do these myself and am hoping you guys can help a newbe along with the process. 


Whoops, I forgot just one little detail thingy - questions are five bucks each, hee hee! :evil6:

Seriously I guess I will have to get an assembly manual up eventually.  But it should rightly involve pictures and such so it may be a little while...

lumenator I think we are sold out of those, see my e-mail reply to you.

Happy to read you recieved my LionHeart Mr. Bulk and yes, wish I could have hand delivered it. 
I will be standing by for any news and no rush, take all the time you need to get to it as I know you are busy you can be.  IF there are any OP reflectors for the flashlight I would like one.   

Thanks and Aloha,
Scott

Many, many new variations have since cropped up after Asus' original 7-inch screen (too small for me) version, and the computer industry is discovering a huge, heretofore untapped market.

And early next year they will come out with a TOUCHSCREEN version.  Go Asus!

I just picked up an Asus Eee 1000H netbook, man it's small and I can do everything (and I mean Everything) that I used to do with my big power-hungry desktop except maybe the more complex (and rare) applications like big Shop editing.  But otherwise surfing the web, word processing, even watching movies, all can be done so very efficiently with my Asus - just need to leave my reading glasses on...

And at a hair over 3 pounds and footprint smaller than a sheet of copier paper (10.5" x 7.5" x 1.3") with up to seven-(7-)hour battery life with Wi-Fi 802.11n wireless connectivity (about the fastest commercially available, faster even than the signal feed speed from most broadband ISPs) it just about replaces my regular desk- and laptop computers.  And I always have it with me - as they say about most hobbies, the best (whatever) is the one you have with you.  An EDC computer, as it were.

You never know what the future holds.  Me, I just need a hunk of free/quiet time right now but an Eternal Flame will always burn bright in my heart, so when The Right Time comes (back), well...:naughty:

I thank you all for your past kindnesses.

Okay, all should be updated so far.  Griff, understood (and here we don't hit the donut shops, we hit the "plate lunch" shops, heh heh).

Glock, see my latest msg.

UPDATE 11-14-08:

Some pics for now, will get to updating the list once people commit (via Paypal) since there will be prices announced at the end of this post -


LionCub bods:



Up Close - only ONE original knurled body (shown on bottom of pic) is available at higher cost (GONE), the other twenty will be as shown at top of pic:



Lo and Behold, we got DragonHeart bods too -- notice that in the top row, the two on the right and on the bottom row the fourth on the right (GONE) are *SHINY*.  That is how they usually came, but the rest shown here have a matte-finished anodizing.  The three *SHINY* ones have NO TRIT SLOTS and will cost a little more, although I would think the matte ones are desirable as well simply for their "tactical-ness" for lack of a better word:


Also note the top row lights are OD Green and the bottom row is Black except for the one on the far right which is a seventh OD Green.


Holy Cow, we still had STAINLESS DRAGONHEARTS???  These are COMPLETELY BUILT LIGHTS, and they simply turned up while going through my stuff:


These four remaining Stainless Steel Dragons are (PRICE EDIT) $260 each plus shipping.

Now as for the selling price of the LionCub Kits, let's consider the componentry cost for each LionCub:

1) I paid $25 per circuit board

2) I paid $20 per McR-20 reflector

3) I paid as high as $14 for each Luxeon star as I always sought out and purchased the best bins available at the time

4) although I bought the dual-side AR-coated UCL lenses in *Bulk* (cool word, eh?), they retail for $7 from Flashlight Lens

5) the goldplated piano wire battery springs retail for $5

6) add another $5 for the o-rings and button covers and the total so far is

$25+$20+$14+$7+$5+$5 = $77 not yet counting the bodies

I am setting the price of each complete LionCub kit at only $99 (and I ASSURE you the bodies alone cost significantly more than $22 each!!!), and due to the losses at such a price I will require $5 to cover handling/packaging/shipping (in the U.S., contact me for international destinations as it will be more) plus $3 to cover Paypal fees so for simplicity's sake can we please just keep it to an even $107 delivered per each Cub kit regardless of number ordered, meaning two kits will be $214, etc.

SUCH a deal, I tell ya.

-GONE-Add $25 if you want the one Cub kit with the last available original LionCub body with the knurling and the lanyard hole in the tail.  But be warned, the bezel opening is still the original width (meaning not "opened up" as the rest of them are). -GONE-

Add $25 for the matte DragonHeart body, or $35 for the shiny (NON-slotted for Tritium vials) DragonHeart body (BLACK ONE IS GONE).

Please Paypal the appropriate amount for your order to mrbulk(at)gmail(dot)com and indicate here when you are done.  Please indicate your preferences for

1) which body you are ordering

2) which converter you want, and most importantly

3) your FF log-in name

Packaging and shipping to begin immediately since I don't has ta build'em any more (yee haw!).

Again - you will provide your own wire and solder, this is all that is required to build each of these lights.

So there ya has it...it's Fire Sale time at BulkWare!  Thank you all for your kind support over these past five years.

SteveL, got you noted down for now.

Troy, you too, although the bods have already been beadblasted when they were produced (except for the CM sections which are smooth), but then bare Al is so easy to mirror polish (just ask Regs)...

And oh yeah, I'm providing them as complete kits only, not separate parts.
