Here is a build I just completed. This started life as a "Scratch and Dent" SF Redeemer saber until the wonderful Darkside Engineering worked his magic on it. After some additional machining from DarthAlice it became quite the beautiful hilt both inside and out.

I just received this Obi in the mail today and absolutely love it! Just had to try it out before going to work. The "kid" in me took over for a bit! Huge props to Corran Horn for his work on this along with Darth Alice for his powdercoating and saber chassis. Thanks guys!!!

Thanks Sandpeople! I'm very proud of this one. Always loved the Obi hero style hilts. I have a great ANH version of his and this one just completes my whole Obi experience. I think the Ep I/II Obi sabers are nice but my own personal opinion has me gravitating towards the thin choke and sleek styling of his hero hilts of the later movies. Absolutely love'm!
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.
