Yer not allowed to tease members like this... more details needed for those able - and do you supply them done? :angel:

I have been making them for myself and mates but if I did get enough interest I would be happy to make some for folks on here. I currently can only get my hands on bare t20 pills. So if anyone has links to t38,t50 and t67 bare pills I could then also do them.

Sent PMs to the guys interested in the pills I have been making. I have decided to call it a day with making the pills as I have just received for the second time the wrong parts from the chinese supplier. Getting it sorted and refunded the last time was a nightmare. Sorry for the disappointment guys. If anyone wants any info on what bits I use feel free to ask.

robert? heres the basic problem...

i have spent a couple years on a flashlight sight. not like i wanted to at first, but, this hobby drove me to it, lol...i mean what with illuminators being half our battle and all...

the guys that made pills and quit?

you can buy a flashlight... and order "bare pills" a month later from the same company? and the pills might not fit. its highly FRUSTRATING. you simply cant "buy 100 of them" when you need them to keep modding them for people.

we go thru this on the flashlight site? ALL the time... we have guys that make expensive "specialty" all copper pills? then next thing you know, the same light wont take them. somethings a hair too long, somethngs a hair too short, a thread is off...

when we do a "group buy" of a light we like?? the guy organizing the group buy usually announces how much "bare pills" are when hes putting the orders together... if we could just BUY THEM when we wanted? we wouldnt go thru that... we know that buying them "at the time of the group buy" guarantees they fit right... and that all of us have the exact same pills

====================================================

threads are a constant headache for the chinese, lol...
Well, I understand that, boys... but see, my CAT gets the silly idea you're making fun of HIM... then he gets, *really* mean...
