Some of you know that my company is going out of business. I've been spending a lot of time trying to "land" another job. I got lucky and scored an interview on 9/27 and got hired a week later. I'm expecting a class date sometime in mid December.
Class is not easy. Its six weeks of class away from home, living in a hotel with a one week break then you go out to fly for around two weeks. I've got a lot of studying to do and am getting a head start now.
I'm pretty much going to be off the forum until February sometime once I'm flying the line.
I will do my best to answer any pms that are sent my way. Our mod team does a great job and can solve most problems. I don't see my absence affecting the operations at all. If you feel you do need an admin you can contact Amptrooper or Jedi Yar Nala. If you need immediate help you can contact any mod and they can either help you directly or they can phone the other two admin.
This is bittersweet. I've been very active on a lightsaber forum since feb 2007. Being totally offline for three months is going to be torture.

Well guys, its been a long four months being away from the forum and worse my family, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. OJT is in about a week then I'm flying the line. I will be slowly rejoining the forum as I get the job down but I still have a lot of work ahead of me.
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?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
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.
