Quote from: Doctor Iz on Jun 03, 2006, 05:48 pmKarst and Purple got their Fresnel lens from Hardware Specialty Co. Their particular lens measurements: height 6" x diameter 6.5"I spoke to a guy named Joe Wilson. He was very helpful. They have about 30-40 glass 360 degree Fresnel lens' left. They have not sold the glass ones in quite some time. There going for about $44.00 US. I ordered one and will post a pic to make sure it is the real McCoy!I have included the address, phone numbers, web site that Karst posted on my thread for those interested.Cheers -- JonHardware Specialty Co.3419 11th Ave S.W.Seattle, WA 98134Phone(206)624-5785Fax (206)682)-0186Cheers,Jon
Quote from: cathlyn847 on Jun 15, 2010, 10:50 pmI had a wee bit of time to spare so I took a drive down to South Seattle and visited Specialty Hardware. I met Joe Hickeyand he fetched a FRESNEL for me. It is an impressive hunk of glass. It has flaws, you can see seams and a few air bubbles in the cast glass.I asked again 'how many do you have left in stock' and he confessed he really did not know as they are 'spread around'. He promised to phone me with an accurate count, when he does I will post it.I asked again about getting more after the last few sell. He said yes it SHOULD be possible, but the price could be significantly higher and it might require a minimun number of Fresnels be ordered at one time. He promised to check into it and find out how many a minimum order would be (5? 10?) ...again I will post the info when I get it.I seized the opportunity to get mine at the $44 price. Here are some pix:It is not 6" true...more like 5.5"
