I've had a lot of questions about the lenses. Just wanted to clarify whats up with them. I'm having all three designs (from above) made at Pogo but in low quantities. Lance's work is really outstanding and I can wait to see them! Should be done before years end. Lance's process of making them is essentially the same as the original process, screened and baked. They will be marked of course.

Right now before Lance actually makes these, I can increase the order quantity pretty easily. If you are looking to just buy lenses (not bodies) of these three designs, tell me now and I'll get you covered and add them to the order. A set of lenses will be $125. Once the order comes in I probably wont be selling the lenses separate from the bodies because I'll only have limited supply.

Thanks!
Paul

Started molding two of the bases now for the shoe box globes. Heres some pictures, original base on left, repro on right. Might come in handy for those missing the bases for the shoebox globes. Paul

Thanks Jeff, glad you like your shoebox!

Lance at Pogo is doing a great job as always, anxious to see how those lenses turn out. There are three designs in the works, posted the designs earlier. Paul

Does the shoebox globe come with the base or bases? The globe is $350.00.Bases are ? Do I buy the lenses from Pogo? Are the lenses $125.00? I think you have a great item.. Can't wait to hear from you. Thank You, Dan.

Hi Dan,

The shoebox globe doesn't come with a base, the $350 is for the globe body.

The bases I've made a few of now, have two versions. I havent really set a price for those, if someone needs one for your pump best to just contact me and see what I have. Be around $100 depending on what your after.

The lenses are in pre-production. I have small orders with Pogo gas for three lens designs. If you get your order in before Lance at Pogo gas makes these for us, Im selling them for $125 a set. Lance is on the verge of making these if he hasnt started screening already! I plan on making full shoebox globes (with lenses) with the lenses I ordered for myself.

Lance can also make lenses for you if your looking for another design, I know he's making some extra blanks. I hope I'll be doing follow up orders with Lance for more lenses too, but it depends on demand. So far, so good. Thanks for your interest in this project!

Paul

Here's a low-res quick pictures of the glass being made by Pogo Gas. Not finished yet, but very interesting to see the glass being screened and in process. Lance is a very talented guy! Coming out great.

Thanks Dave!

We just received all of our shoebox lenses from Lance at Pogo. They look great, we are very happy with them! Now that we have the lenses, we are packaging up all of the pre-orders. Orders will be shipped out Monday.

Thanks
Paul
