    Aug 27, 2013, 11:39 PM - Terminal Fettler Rf light kit with honeywell micro switch (FPH2 kit now available) #1

    Ok, after many hours with my nose to the grindstone, I have decided that I am able to offer the TF RF w/ switch kits for sale. Keep in mind that the kit requires a hollow stalk (not included) and a terminal fettler rangefinder topper. Also the ear piece from MoJo-Fett, as well as the ear piece for the GMH, are smaller than the standard ear piece and would need modified to get the switch to fit in it.

    Here is what is included in the kit:
    Completed light board with the GOW bulbs and wire pre soldered
    Honeywell 1sx1-t micro switch with leads soldered
    Solder-less wire connectors
    9v battery holder
    A set of instructions with pictures (I have them in both Word and PDF formats, just let me know which you would like and an email address to send it to).

    Here is the vid of the kit installed in my own helmet.

    5.

    I tried to make this kit to be as easy as I could to put together (no soldering required), but modifications to the ear piece, topper, and stalk may be needed to get everything to fit, but that stuff is out of my control.

    Ok, now for the price. I will be offering these for $95 including shipping, PayPal only. (lower 48 for right now, I will try to get these overseas at a later date).
    In the PayPal invoice notes section please list your TDH name, mailing address, an email address for me to send the instructions to, as well as which file (PDF or Word), you would like me to send you.

    I don't want to seem like I am beating a dead horse, but this kit must have a hollow stalk to work, and the GMH as well as the Mojo-Fett ear pieces are a bit small, so some slight modifications are needed to get the switch to fit in them. Also this kit is for the RF that terminal fettler sells, not the asok or fettpride rangefinders. The fettpride kit that is similar to this one will be available soon (I just finished designing the board), and I will also be ordering boards for the asok topper soon as well.

    I would like to thank Chris (FP), Asok (R.I.P brother you are missed), and Garrett (TF) for the support in this endeavor, without them this wouldn't be happening.
    Finally I would like to thank everyone for their patience with this project, my recent medical issues really put a damper on this thing for a while, and thank you to everyone for understanding. I hope everyone likes this kit, and I have more stuff swirling in my head, so hopefully I will have new stuff to announce soon.

    Ok, I have had a few questions regarding this kit and both the GMH ear piece and the MOJO Fett ear piece. This kit will work with those ear pieces, but they both will need to be altered a bit along with the one corner of the switch, to get the switch to fit in the ear piece as well as to allow the stalk to fit correctly. I do not have a set of ears from Mojo, but I do have a resin GMH ear piece, so I took a pic of it with the micro switch to help illustrate what I mean.

    UPDATE
    I will be sending out my paypal info to those who PM'd me about the three that were available. I will also be building one kit tonight so there will be one up for grabs. Lastly I just ordered 4 more switches, so when they get here I will have 4 more kits ready to go. Once these are sold I will be ordering more Asok kit boards, so more of those will be coming soon as well. Once I get some of both kits made and sold, I will be ordering the boards for the FPH2 kit and be building some of those.

    I have 4 kits just about ready, I just have to get different wire (the new stuff i bought doesn't fit through the TF or FP hollow stalk) and I'm waiting for the switches to get here (should be about 5 days). Once these are G2G, I will update the first post.
    Thanks to everyone for showing interest in this and being patient with me on getting these things together.

    LOL, I knew this was coming. The CAD drawing for the board is done, all I need to do is order the boards. Funds are a little low right now (the surgery and my wife's broken leg), so I wont be ordering them until I sell all 4 of these kits. Three are already spoken for, so I just need the last one to sell and the FP boards will get ordered.

    Thanks, I will get it out today, but you never gave me your mailing address. As soon as I get it, it will get mailed and the instructions will be sent as well (let me know which file format you want Word or PDF).

    Well due to a mix up on my part, I will have more boards for the TF kit coming soon (I meant to order more of the Asok boards). So don't worry about missing out on a run, I will have more TF boards than I will know what to do with soon.

    Thanks for the good review wolf. Since there doesn't seem to be much interest in these, I will only be making them when asked for one. These kits are hard to build and if they aren't going to sell, I'm not going to build them. Is anyone interested in the fettpride kit? I need at least 4 people to want it, otherwise I'm not going to bother ordering the boards.
