    I know the feeling. Their communication is very poor once they have received your order. They have no way to log on to their website and check status and they are not very responsive to email. Check this thread for an idea of what to expect.

    I placed an order from them over a month ago and received an e-mail that it "shipped" on Nov. 19, but it has not arrived yet. Another member of these forums who is converting three of his Turbocats with my machined conversion kits has also not received his parts, and he placed his order earlier than I did. By now I assume that neither of us are going to get our parts. I actually placed another order from Cutter yesterday, but this time I paid around $100 extra for UPS Global Express. Hopefully I'll have better luck with a reputable shipping company that has a parcel tracking system.

    I would never have ordered anything from Cutter to begin with. The pricing is way out of line. I bought a flashlight at WallyMart about a month ago and paid $18. I saw the exact same thing on Cutter's site for $48.

    Those boards can be aquired cheaper from Taskled. The lenses are only $8.25 from Future Electronics, and the LED's can be bought from a number of different sources. Even with shipping from three different places it doesn't add up to the price of the kit from Cutter. And then your going to pay out the ass to have it shipped.

    Paying $100 for express service? You don't want to know what I think about that.

    In addition to manufacturing kits to convert Turbocats to LED, I hand-make and sell one-off machined lights. I order my LEDs and optics in quantity, so $100 extra doesn't add that much per light. I have a queue of customers waiting for lights, so it is worth it to me to ensure I receive my order. The LEDs are available elsewhere, but I prefer to have the LEDs mounted on a MCPCB so that they will be upgradeable and replaceable if necessary. If you find another authorized Cree distributor that has the MR-11 sized MCPCB, I'd love to know.

    - 4 and 14 deg. lenses that are designed for Crees are only $6.06 from Cutter.

    - I do buy the boards from directly from Taskled.

    - Placing bare emmiters on a heatsink by hand is very slow and tedious. Plus I'd have to machine pockets for each emmiter to ensure correct LED-optic alignment. For me, the hour or so saved by having the LEDs mounted on the MCPCB more than makes up for the difference in cost.

    As difficult as the shipping situation is, Cutter is an authorized Cree distributor and when you order a Q5 WH bin, you know that you will get the real deal. That is not the case with KD or DX. The only Cree distributor in the US is LED Lighting Supply and don't have the right size MCPCB or high bin Crees available in small quantities.

    By the way, nice work on the Turbocat mofoki! I guess you don't need those bezels anymore...

    Not necessarily. I placed an order for what was listed as R2 WG bin, got a order confirmation showing R2 WG bin, and found out thru the forum linked above that I am getting R2 WH bin. May work out in my favor, I don't know until I see what the actual color looks like fired up. WeLight stated in the forum that the lastest orders are shipping, but I have yet to receive an actual shipping confirmation email.

    You would think that Cutter being an authorized distributor (are they the only one available?) would have the means to provide current and accurate information to their customers on stock status and shipping status that are paying premiums for these products. It is very frustrating that they are the only option available for new releases.

    There is obviuosly alot of frustration in regards to Cutter. We need to make sure to direct that frustration in the proper direction. jeepmtnbiker was simply trying to say that his situation is dealing with R2's.

    I think StevelKnivel is trying to get off on a business venture, at least that's what it sounds like, and just trying to limit assembly time and labor. I don't blame you for that but quality has to go into a product too. I've been taking my time and trying different things to find the best solutions so I don't end up getting a bad reputation or losing any friends. I built some lights for friends using halogen MR-11 bulbs in the past but I had some troubles when I got into overvolting the bulbs. It seems that the battery packs I spec'd for the sets from Batteryspace didn't quite meet the application, even after communicating with Batteryspaces tech guy about what I wanted them for. The people who had problems got pretty mad about having to replace bulbs 3 or 4 times or more in a season. At $20 a bulb I'd be mad too. My suggestion is to take your time and research every vendor and you might even have to have someone make an OEM part specificly for your design. Remember, there is no cheap easy way to get rich.

    Well I have been waiting since Nov, 13th for some R2 kits. Have sent numerous emails all of which state my kits were shipped Nov 16th. They (Mark and Ben) have made it my fault for not choosing a different shipper when none was offered on their site nor was I asked through the initial emails. I did not ask for USPS/UPS/DHL as Ben stated that the average time to the U.S. was 6-8 days with the shipping option I choose from their site!!
    I have not had any comments from Cutter as to how to handle "lost" shipments or if they will resend by a "reputable shipper" I think I am out the 300+ dollars as Cutter seems like they will not stand behind their business practice.
    Any other sources for complete R2 kits?
    Bottom line is I would not suggest using Cutter. To think that I was going to order their light housings too at 100.00 each.

    Appearently Cutter doesn't have them either. I think I read in the Candle Power Forums that they are not even out there for us to get our dick-beaters on yet. And they are not all that great either. You won't even be able to tell the difference with the human eye between R2 and Q5. And is it really worth all the trouble just so you can ride down a trial at night. Given the application, I don't think so.

    mofoki,
    If you think that I'm looking to get rich quick by building nice bike lights, you are sorely mistaken. I am an engineer and machinist who has access to CNC equipment, and I enjoy making things that work well. The $50 I charge for the two machined pieces to convert T-cats is enough to cover my machine time, tooling, and material costs. That's it. I am in no way recouping the time I put in designing or testing the conversion. If I wanted to make a killing I never would have posted pictures of the internals of my conversion kit. I am flattered that you decided to copy my design for a conical heatsink in your Turbocat.

    Unlike your experience building lights for people, I have had zero (0) failures on the multiple conversions I've done. The hand made complete lights I've been making have been commissioned by my friends and riding buddies. If you knew how much lathe/mill/finishing time goes into the lights I'm making you would retract your statement about quality. If I was concerned about cost rather than quality I would just order my parts from the cheapest place possible and do all my machine work on a drill press.

    I'm not trying to be offensive here.Geeeeez! Calm down Gents. I don't think I said anything out of line, well maybe the getting rich part may have sounded mean spirited, but it wasn't intended that way. And I didn't copy any of your designs. I have been focused on modding those TurboCat pods for some time now. I just had to wait for the parts to come in. I still haven't gotten the driver boards that actually fit down inside the pods from China that I ordered allmost two months ago. I have space in there for em. It looks like I'll be waiting for some time more to come before I can complete em the way I want em. As far as the quality topic, I'm sure you are doing your best to build your sets the best you can. I don't think Cutter is interested in quality for obvious reasons. I've seen some of the boards the LED's are mounted to and appearently they are of poor quality to the point where they are very hard to get solder to even stick to em. That's just my observations.

    Delays

    Guys
    I can understand your frustration, we are also frustrated. The R2 are in very limited release and we only just recieved our 2nd 250 pcs, we also have been out of stock of the optics on occasions due the popularity of the kits. The newly designed optic is almost complete and I will have 50 of the narrow and medium beam here on Monday, if ok we will then receive 5000 pcs so stock wont be a problem, we are also expecting the new MAXflex2 from Taskled late next week.

    Pricing. Are we cheaper than alternatives, probably not but if you buy all the bits from us instead of buying each from suppliers and paying postage from each supplier, we are not badly priced. We are a franchised Cree distributor and we do supply direct from Cree the very best bins at assured flux and tint values, not sure you can say that about all suppliers however that may or may not be worth something to you

    We hope to clear all backorders prior to Xmas so please email me at mark.riley@cutter.com.au if your concerned about you particular order

    Cheers

    Yea. I'm suppose to believe u r a representative from Cutter. If you are there you go Gents, an admission to why you haven't gotten your shipments yet. Get a life my friend. Yes they are the same flashlights. If you want to prove it to me send me one so I can run the tests. I'll pay for it if I'm wrong.

    My 2c:

    1c: I've ordered twice from Cutter; two MR11 kits. Both kits arrived exactly 10 days after I placed the order. Not bad considering the shipping distance (AUS to US).

    2c: The first kit I ordered was with Q5 leds and the second kit was with R2s. Both PCBs are top-notch quality, The R2 PCB is actually a little thicker than the Q5 one. I've had no problems with either PCB.

    As soon as the new MR11 optics are available I'll be ordering some of them as well.

    Cutter is a good outfit. The fact that Mark reads and posts to this forum shows that he values what his customers have to say.

    Your the dude accusing people of accusing you of being a liar, since I dont know you well enough to know whether you are or not I do know that kind of attitude means we wont be swapping spit any time soon. I think a moderator should explain to you how to avoid having the door slam on your behind on the way out.... the torch you refer to is a Rayovac torch, not the Terralux torch we sell, it doesnt even look the same.

    Whatever. Dude!

    I'm only repeating from what I've read on other forums what people say about their experience with merchandise they got from Cutter and their experience with Cutter's customer service. I'm not an idiot. I usually read reviews or consumer reports before I make purchases. If I was the general consumer I probably would just go ahead and buy and like alot of those who did I probably would have been subject to the same poor service these guys on this forum for example have gotten. So for obvious reasons who's the loser? Dude.

    Since your in a thread which essentially has nothing to do with you, and your contribution is based on no real experience I have to assume you know the answer already

    O.K. I guess that was my interpretation of my emails with Cutter. I being the "one off" purchaser for the low cost(it was the more expensive of the two web site options) delivery method. Fedex was NOT pointed out to me as an option.
    So what is my/Cutters next option for my "missing" order? Will you re-ship my order? If I am one of the customers who's order has gone astray, as you state that "people must be getting them". I cannot see to paying the Fedex charge if almost everyone else is getting their kits except me. I promise to return or purchase the missing shipment if it ever arrives.
    Now do tell why I have received no email replies from Cutter since 11/30? You Mark, have replied but on MTBR's private messages. My guess is Cutter is just waiting and hoping my kits will eventually show up. Is this month long on going delay the actual normal or economy shipping time? Thanks John

    mofoki - you have not posted a single thing pertaining to the topic of this thread, if you would like to post your opinion about cutter or your super quality walmart light please open a new thread. If you have something to contribute to this thread that would be great to, but please keep it on topic.

    welight - thanks for stopping in, Im stoked to hear that the light will hopefully be shipped soon. Im really excited to get my project going and replace my old halogen light. I think its great that you guys offer a kit with everything I need to build my light, as this is my fist LED light and I was a bit overwhelmed to have to source parts individually. Ill be looking forward to more purchases when this project is complete. As I will be needing handlebar lights too!!!

    cutter orders

    my 2c worth

    1c - I've had 4 orders in the last year and 3 shipped within a week or so (I'm in Australia)

    2c - one order took over 2 weeks due to out of stock on the latest Cree bin.


    Cheers

    Cutter WTF?

    Two more cents:

    Order for a new triple lens(don't ask) acknowledged by Cutter on 11-29-07.
    Email that order has been shipped received on 12-15-07. Tracking number not included. This
    is not the type of service that gets repeat business.
    As a comparison, I ordered batteries from All Battery and received order confirmation, tracking number and the product within days. There was a slight problem with the connectors and it was addressed and taken care of with apologies and free next day delivery.

    Now I know that Cutter is in AUS but it doesn't excuse lack of responsiveness. No way to run a biz.

    My experiences:

    I'm in the midwest USA if that helps any. I ordered the Cutter kit with Fatman driver and Q5 LEDs on 11/1/07. Received shipment confirmation on 11/9/07. Received the items on or about 11/19/07. No tracking info, but I didn't pay for expedited shipping so I didn't expect any.

    I then proceeded to order the new narrow optic along with some Arctic Silver adhesive on 12/6/07. I received shipment confirmation on 12/19/07 (according to a previous post here, I understand why; optics apparently weren't "in stock"). I am expecting this shipment will take until after the 1st of the year due to postal backlogs and the like.

    I'm happy with the service for the most part. It would be nice if there was tracking info, or maybe slightly better communication in back-order situations, but I'm still planning on using them when needed. The items, IMHO, are as described and great quality. The LEDs compare favorably with the "free" sample I received from Cree (through work), being slightly whiter than the sample, but just as bright (all are Q5). I'm anticipating the new optic as I found the original 10* to be a little to much "flood" for what I am building. Expect to see a comparison of the two, along with photos of my lights when all are completed.

    i have ordered 3 times from them in the past 6 months. First was 2 lenses, came in like 4-5 days. I was surpised. Second time I ordered 3 more lenses, after a month I e-mailed them and then they said they were out of stock but didn't bother to tell me. So I said fine and waited. My friend ordered the same lenses after i told him they were out of stock but he ordered them anyways. 2 weeks later he got his and a week after that I got mine after I e-mailed cutter when my friend got his asking what the deal is. They said they were out of stock but my friend just got some. They said it was already mailed out but i got it a week later with a post mark the day after i e-mailed them. The last time I got 2 more lenes with in a week.

    So my impression is if they are in stock they should come in a timely manner. If not its going to take a while.

    I have ordered from Cutter twice in the last month and both shipments made it to Canada in 7 & 9 days with regular post. Not bad considering Christmas mail volumes. E-mail response and support was good as well.

    I wonder why Im having trouble, I have not gotten email responses and I placed my order on the 6th of this month. Can you PM me with the email address you have received replys from, maybe it got caught in my spam filter or something with my email.

    cool I just tried that... I went through my personal email address this time, Im also wondering if my work has a firewall that may have interfered with the email. I work in a hospital and our firewall system is horrible.

    WeLight,
    I see that you are currently logged into the thread. Can you please explain to us what "Priority Air Mail" is? Thanks

    Oops. Just checked your website. What is "Economy Air"?

    When I ordered my kit it took about 3.5 weeks to reach Canada. It didn't get a shipment acknowledgment until 2.5 weeks past from the day I ordered. I also had to mail them repeatedly until someone responded 2 days before the day I ordered and said it had shipped and then two days later I got an email saying it shipped.

    basically we are at the a..end of the world and our mail service provides little in the way of tracking for basic mail services, we offer standard Airmail(Eco air), mail + insurance and EMS(most expensive but with tracking) I wish I could advise on time to receive, but the mail is horribly inconsistent. We try at all times to ship with 2-3 days of order receipt, assuming all in stock and to most places on the planet it should arrive inside 2 weeks

    Haven't had personal experience with Cutter but confirm what Mark says about how our mail service works. There simply isn't an economical way for Australians to send airmail to other countries with tracking, unless you are shipping LARGE volumes to THAT COUNTRY. The only way to get tracking as a low volume customer is to use a service like EMS/DHL/FEDEX etc which costs plenty.
    Count yourselves lucky you have a great service like USPS and live in a highly populated country where there are lots of stores selling discount bike gear. Out here in the ar*e end of the world, if we can even order something from somewhere like PricePoint our only shipping option is often Fedex, starting at US$50...

    Sounds like a lot of business oportunities in Aus. Maybe the should stop chasing gators and kangaroos.

    Mark, I got my parts on Monday Dec. 24th. Thank you very much. You guys are doing exactly what you say you can do. I owe you an apology for being a somewhat pain in the arse. I believe I just need to get used to the concept that I am doing business with a company on the underside of the planet and learn to plan accordingly.

    I have not even got around to powering up these new R2's yet to see what I think of the newest WH tint. Noticed my last batch of WG tint to be quite warm, quite green.
