Slotted Lanslides

Good evening everyone,

I finished up a few of the slotted Lanslides today. These have a cool striated texture on them...shiny highlights with an overall stonewashed finish. They have three slots measuring 1.5mm x 5mm, just the right size for standard small self actuating glow tubes available from Bart on CPF. This batch is very small, just three dozen of them. These were much more costly to make than the regular Lanslide series so are a little more expensive. They run $25 each plus the shipping. When these are gone I have a few more plain ones coming as well which I may anodize.

Sold out, thank you!

Keep up the great work Peter!

Quick question, how do the tritium vials fit into this? Would I have to glue them in or do they pop and stay in?

James said...

Can't belive I missed these, any chance of another run? They look great!

I have some plain ones with no striations that I will try to finish up in the morning.

The tubes would just plop in there and then you carefully fill the slot the rest of the way with clear epoxy.

Thank goodness you have some plain ones coming. Busy night at work and I can't believe I missed this first run.

The Pros use Norland 61 UV curing optical adhesive for mounting H3 vials..

Man, could have gone for one or two of these! My last order from Bart was well over $300 - love trits!

(& I have 2 fresh tubes of Norland 61 & UV light for curing without needing sunlight...)

on an unrelated note, while i was in texas visiting my brother i saw a bottle for atwood's jaundice bitters. the bottle mentioned Massachusetts and said formerly made by Moses Atwood. thought that was kinda interesting. i got a picture somewhere, but not sure how good it is, if i find the picture i can try forwarding or linking it.

Dog dace of summer are upon us and I am getting anxious. :)

Where's the sharps Peter?

Peter Atwood said...

Weeks away still. The Dace is getting ground right now but it will take weeks to get them totally finished and through heat treat. Then it will take weeks or motnhs for sheaths. Expect them by November and maybe we'll get lucky and see them sooner. :p
