yes, I just used it when I did the prototype, When I designed the part I had the 2 watt bass speaker as the platform, I just so happened to need that speaker for a saber that was going out the door to someone. So there is your answer..
Hey, Tron, You say that this saber is 100% authentic to the concept art. Vader's Vault over on FX-Sabers say that their version is 100% authentic to the concept art. But the pommels are blatantly different. What's the truth?
Between Darkness and Light there is the... EPIC BEAR!

You have to remember, guys. There's essentially two different versions: the trailer version and the actual concept art/promo art version. VV is doing the trailer version, tron is doing the concept/promo art version.
At least that's what I gathered from what I've seen.
The best anyone has to offer is a win for anyone no matter what version is chosen... All I can say is between the two runs... there is plenty of variety and there aint a damn thing wrong with that! lol Two beautiful pieces to choose from!!! I still wish I had the dough! lol

I had to chime in on this one, I must say that Tron knocked it out of the park on this design, as it turned out better than I could have imagined, and feel honored to have been a part of the design/engineering phase. If anyone here is on the fence about getting involved in this run, think about this; You will have a dueling saber that is a great and extremely stout representation of the TFU2 saber (whichever of the 2 versions you pick with the pommel options that Tron is offering) #2 , a full reveal crystal chamber with a very easy release mechanism, a Z6, the brightest LED on the market,an Igniter that can hold over 2000+ Wav. files, 800+ music tracks, 18 blade colors with dual phase on 9 fonts. And the best part of this run????? Time...it will be done inside of 6 months at the most, so you'll have the most current tech.( as I mentioned before, this is one of the very few custom production sabers that I would enjoy having in my own very small collection! Great Job once again my Friend !

Oh yeah...did I mention reason #4; The whole design, concept,research, engineering, 5 axis machine set-up, and the whole ball of wax is done in one place by 1 Smith. And once again, after seeing a real machine shop with stupidly expensive machinery, I feel as though I'm beating sabers together with rocks in comparison ( a very similar bit of machine envy as felt with Caz's amazing set-up)

I am making some modifications to my Trailer Pommel files this morning to dial in a feature I wanted to get just right, please bear with me, I will post the final version later. I want it to be perfect for you guys that asked me to make it .
I appreciate all the support, Please lets keep this thread topic clean and professional. I don't have time to play children's games. I have serious work to do, and I am only committed to what I do for the people that have invested in me to provide them with what they asked for in a professional and timely manner.
Beautiful work! Beyond my meagre means at the mo, but if I were a bit better off, I'd jump on one (or two) of these. Still a real pleasure to see the culmination and fruition of work and very inspiring
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."
Jun 23, 2017 16:26:53 GMT -5
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.
