Herr Doktor responded on this thread on 16th May.
That's just 10 days ago.
He stated he had to contact the guy who does the casting; I assume to sort out logistics and costs.
Please, have a little patience.
Herr Doktor is attending a large number of Steampunk events and displaying his inventions.

Patience, is the thing here Ladies and Gents.

As I stated in a previous post, almost a year since my inquiry, price wrangling, logistics, postal charges, etc have to be calculated, how much is it to send a ring to Aus, various states in the US, etc etc......And all that on one man, who has a busy life.

But, that being said, I really want one.  Grin

My ",no?" was to imply my uncertainty in asking.

Is there a copyright on this?

If not, I intend to contact a jeweler friend of mine to see the production costs, materials available and get some produced.

Yours sincerely, fed up with waiting,

It's my design, so it is protected, and can only. E produced with my permission


Iin other news, I have found the prototype, contacted my casting company, got a quote, sourced the boxes, and, Cog willing, will have them available again in the first quarter of next year, for the first time in a variety of sizes.

So another 4 months for production?

OK............Almost 2 years since I pushed this topic that would have sunk into the archives, not in any rush to protect the idea and copyright are you?

We will have to wait in anticipation, with baited breathe, wiping drool from jowls.

I, too, am hard pressed to restrain my enthusiasm, nay, desire, that this endeavour meet with every success.
And of course I want one, too!
For those desiring a ring in Silver, consider palladium as a more affordable and less high maintenance alternative.
A bit less shiny than platinum, but much harder, and much less expensive.
And (big bonus here) like platinum --and unlike silver--there is minimal oxidation.

I don't much what it's made of, I just want one! Grin In the best possible way, of course, and with endless patience reinforced by the pronouncement of a date!
Any estimation of cost, so I can start putting aside my coin?

I would like one as well - my original broke next to the buckle and the other one got lost in the backyard. I will  be keeping an eye on this thread!

After a PM I can assure you the good Herr Döktor IS on the case.

I have also apologized for being impatient and coming across as slightly stroppy.

Roll on the the big day when I can my grubby little fingers on one........... My precious.......

Further to SeVeNeVeS's above post, I have taken a new silicone mould of the original, and tomorrow will have six resin castings to modify into different sizes, and to show you my good intentions, I have acqured a proper set of ring sizing equipment:

Busy day in the lab, as I work on the masters for five new sizes of the near legendary goggle ring!

Sizes soon to be available are (UK and US): L/6, N/7, P/8, R/9 (the original), T/10, and V/11.

Excellent!

Any idea of cost yet? Really great to see progress In a mighty fine design.

Just a quick question if I may, will they be cast in pewter as before?

Many thanks my friend.

They will be in pewter again, as I have a very reliable caster now, and as they will be in smaller batches, with a proper ring box, I'm looking at the £15-£20 mark.

You need to get these onto Amazon, or at least a web site with a merchant setup.
