    35mm triple optics and XMLs ,

    The only place I have found triple optics and XMLs mounted on MCPCBs is Cutters. However the cost of shipping adds another 50% to the cost .
    I would appreciate if anyone could advise of LED suppliers with triples (35mm).

    I do not like the costs of the postage from Cutter, $5-10 would be acceptable for the items but 20 is just too much,

    Thanks

    Can't help you with an alternate source, but postage took a huge increase in January. Prior to that increase, I could mail my GoPro light adapters to Australia for $7.10 and I added $.90 to cover the mailing supplies. After the January increase the postage cost to Australia is now $13.75. I think a similar increase occurred in Australia too as a customer there mailed me a part to modify. The package was only 1.5 ounces and cost him $14.10AUD. Cutters are not ripping you on postage. They have an employee package the items and prepare the international mailing and Customs form. On a small order they have to pass on those costs.

    If you are talking about Ledil optics can be found on Farnell. At least it was in the past.

    Yeah, I checked on Aussie Post, the price from cutters was as per the postal website. But its still a lot to pay. I'll keep searching for alternatives. Or just buy more to spread the cost.

    Absolutely. Lots of folks won't/can't pay or justify it. I've seen a huge drop in international orders since that postage increase. When I tell someone the postage for an adapter is going to cost as much or more than the adapter itself their interest fades fast.
