Hobbit Headlight and Headlight holder - who needs?

Myself and another are currently working on 3D printing hobbit headlights and the front bezel of the headlight, As these always break for everyone and treatz never has them in stock.

We may be mass printing and selling them if it works and the price is reasonable.

We're finishing up on the cad design for the printer and are just figuring out a few nuances that the 3d printer can't handle well (mainly the part where the spring holds the speedo in).

We're going to first try a strong ABS because it is sandable to get a nice smooth finish. They'd be either black or white, we're not matching colors for obvious reasons.

I just wanted to post this up to gauge interest in those who would probably want to pick one up if this is a success.

Let me know below, so i can get a rough idea of the demand.

Thanks.

Pretty sure these would sell, almost every one I have seen has been damaged to some extent.

Stop talking about it and do it. You know they will sell. (edited)
