Here is a pictorial list of my saber builds over the past few years. I am not going to list all the details of each saber as most of them have been displayed on other forums as well and that would just take a lot of time to do that. I will start doing that with each saber here after though. Starting with the oldest first. Starts at about 1997 till 2011. Only have a few pictures of my old sabers as the computer they were in crashed a lot time ago. Sadly, I lost my saber pictures and my family pictures. Mostly pictures of the kids when they were young. I learned the meaning of backing your system up now!!! Please enjoy and comments are fully welcome (good or bad)!
That was a collaboration of me and MH from FX. The Shroud design is mine in every way and the actual saber was assembled by MH. It is a MHS saber. Right now I think it is owned by a fella in Africa who actually owns too of my works now. It was a fun saber to work on. I would love to see this same saber with a brass shroud too! Thanks for the complements!
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
