    I just received a new fixture from CopperMoon that I think is well designed and noteworthy.

    The CopperMoon CM895 mini-flood is a small, rugged, well designed fixture that will surely fill a niche in the market. It is basically a little brother to the CM890 fixture.

    Doug is expecting to have inventory of these around the 3rd week of June.

    By the way the socket is located they should be able to handle my NEW G4 Bi-Pin LED lamp very nicely!

    james- how long is the lead, and do you need to use tools to unscre the face or adjust the knuckle? what type of stake does it come with, and how does the weight feel? have you tried out the unit on a wall? how is the spread? cost wise where does this item fall compared to other smaller floods?

    1: I have a sample unit here. The lead wires on the inventory will probably be typical 2' of 18/2.

    2: Thumbscrews (or a flathead) for the shroud and a Philips to adjust the knuckle.

    3: Typical 8" long plastic stake.

    4: This is a very well built fixture. The casting is heavy and finished nicely. Solid raw brass.

    5: I just go the sample unit here today, no time to power it up yet.

    6: It should price out cheaper than the CM890 currently does, according to Doug, which would put it significantly below the cost of other small format floods.

    How about a photo of the 895 next to an 890, for comparison?

    Hey James, on a side note. I would have to say that is about the cleanest looking bed liner I have ever seen in a work truck. It doesnt' look like that baby has ever seen dirt of any kind. Sparklin!

    Well... the truck is only 2 months new and I like to keep a clean machine.

    By the way, the 2009 Toyota Tundra absolutely ROCKS! This is the best truck I have ever owned. It simply blows away the competition in every category. (Oh and in case someone was about to release a barrage of whining about it being Japanese... The Tundra is over 85% North American content, the highest of any pickup truck on the road)

    James,

    What does the gasket look like and how well does it hold position when servicing?

    You haven't fired one up yet? Seems to me the quality of the light distribution is at least as important as the quality of the finish.

    In the last photo you can see the black silicone gasket around the perimeter of the shroud. It fits very well and did not come out of its channel when I opened the fixture. I have talked to Doug about adding two small o-rings on the brass thumb screws that affix the shroud to the body and he seemed completly open to this improvement.

    I am just rocking busy right now Tom... working 16-18 hour days, six days a week, just barely keeping my head above the water. I have a new guy starting next week and once he gets trained I hope to have some more time to 'play' around the shop.

    Regards
