    At my request, Ray Wu has located a source for Clear Faceted C7 LED Covers. So far I have only preliminary information that they are similar to the lens on a C7 LED Retro Bulb with candelabra base. The measurements are H 38.2mm, W 21mm, with a 9mm hole in the base. Initial pricing information is that they are slightly less than the clear faceted covers coop'd by FatHead45.

    In the interest of saving money, I'm anticipating that a large quantity buy might bring the price down even lower. I'm also thinking that the cost of of freight to TH and then forwarding to members by Thailand Post Registered Airmail still might work out to a savings over buying smaller quantities and shipping direct from Ray.

    If so, I would be willing to run a group buy if there were enough interest. Is there?

    Ray has sent me a picture of a sample red color cover.

    I should receive sample(s) in a couple days. If as described above, I will probably order about 3000 myself.

    The C9 is on the LED in the picture.
    The LED is a RGB Pixel that uses a 5050 LED

    The sample C7 was that colour, i believe it comes in clear.

    Cheers
    Phil
