Here we have a prototype  Lantern. I used a 3mm x 22.5 long "SELF LIGHTING GLASS VIAL". The lantern body is .3125 Brass hexagon stock 1.250 long. I still have to fill the slots with clear epoxy to protect the vial. I'm not sure if this will be a production piece or not, so lets see if you folks are interested. As of now I don't have a price point, I may change the design somewhat too.
Have a Happy Halloween, Kenn

Oh yeah! I am excited for this lantern to go into production!

Great idea--combination of brass and trit vial--looks fantastic.

Order more trit vials, and put the milling machine to the brass!

Wow! Great work!

Sorry Kenny I went out for the night. the pics look great :) I had a good laugh at the email. So the temptation of making something in the shop finally got to ya ;) Great idea and I think with some more details these will be cool little keychain lanterns.

Hey John! I hope all is well with you :)
