    Default SELLING: Your Lumia Dreams come true...

    Hi all

    Hehe... Your Lumia Dreams have <possibly> come true...

    For a good few months now i've looked at my part built lumia rig sitting on the bench. That's all I do, look at it. I just don't seem to get the time to dedicate to this project any more. Either that, or i've just run out of steam and am dedicating time to other projects.

    This is potentially one hell of a rig, it just all needs fixing together and the wiring finishing/tidying up.

    So, here's what is included (are you sitting down comfortably?)...

    1 x 600mm x 300mm x 20mm Aluminium breadboard

    5 x Pangolin V-Rad Actuators. All come mounted on custom machined aluminium angle brackets. Also, all have custom machined mirror mounts.

    4 x 12v DC 1rpm motors mounted on custom machined aluminium angle brackets

    1 x Dave's Analogue DMX board and interface

    1 x Andy_Con (NRG) 1 watt red diode laser module

    1 x Ca$io 1 watt blue diode module

    1 x 700mW Laserwave DPSS Green Module and controller interface

    All above lasers are mounted on to an aluminium heatsink and come with power supplies etc.

    1 x Bounce mirror mount

    2 x 1" Dirchro Mounts (from Stanwax)

    2 x Edmund Optics Dichro's (yes, these are the stupidly expensive really good ones)

    6 x Glass Lumia wheels (more if required)

    1 x Poly 20 diffraction grating

    1 x Soundlab DMX controller

    Various front surface mirrors.

    All DMX wiring is good to go and works perfectly (thanks to Ade at the last UKLEM). Move a slider on the controller and the V-Rad responds. Loads of other stuff is partly assembled with most of the major components in place. The vast majority of the gear is brand new and even the bits that aren't are in great condition.

    There's also multiple bits and bobs such as diffraction gratings/mirrors/mounts/wires/fixings/spacers etc etc etc. Basically you'll get the box with lots of extras not listed containing everything that may be useful for this project.

    Now, here's the crunch, and if you've already read this far you'll be ready for this i'm sure. I've just shocked myself when i've done an approximate add up of everything i've spent on this project. It comes to well in excess of 1500 <ouch!>

    So, what should I ask for it all as one job lot??? I do not want to split it at this stage, so please don't ask. If I don't get any takers I may just mothball the whole project and come back to it at some future date. But for someone wanting to build themselves a serious Lumia rig this has got to be the mother of all rigs.

    I think i'd be open to offers of 1000 for the lot at this stage which i'm sure is a really good deal for someone wanting to build a mega lumia rig without the hassle of sourcing all the parts. If you are seriously interested in this please let me know either here or on Facebook and we can discuss further. Any questions, please ask away and i'll try my best to answer. Anyone who knows me will know that I always want a buyer to be happy with their purchase, and i'm sure you'll be happy with this .

    Cheers

    Jem

    Jem... that's basically a kit of parts!
    Don't give up now; you can have it running for Surfleet (or at Surfleet!)
    - There is no such word as "can't" -
    - 60% of the time it works every time -

    Yes, indeed Dan, and lots of parts there are too

    There's still a good few hours work though and a lack of inspiration and time on my part. If no-one is interested I guess i'll get around to it eventually though. It seems that as the economy is picking up so is my daily workload, I guess you can't have it both ways.

    Hey ho...

    If only you weren't across the pond where it's the damn exchange rate and outlandish shipping.... this thread would be closed. You're DONE the time consuming part for me...

    Jem,

    Happy to be the first person to sign up to the "Jem Lumia" project at Surfleet, I will even bring a few glass treats and beam splitters to help the mix.

    Cheers

    Thanks Steve, if there's no-one interested here i'll probably put everything in a box and bring it along.

    Incidentally Steve, when are you travelling down/back?

    After taking far, far longer than it ever should have, (and I'm totally to blame) I am very pleased and proud to say this fine vision of Sir Jeremy is becoming a part of the arsenal that is "Mt. Lasermore". Whisper quiet, top notch lumia goodness is a mere trans-atlantic flight away. (And I even get something from Andy at the same time! )

    (I'm a touch bit excited...)

    Lol Brad. You're a hopeless case

    I'm sure you'll be absolutely delighted with all the goodies you're going to receive. I also look forward to seeing this project come to fruition... and i'll more than likely be a tad jealous when I see it running, but hey ho.

    Take care

    Jem
