I've been doing work with Industrial Action on an almost constant basis and since I talk to him so often about so many little bits and pieces it would take a LOT of feedback posts to get me up to date fully, so I wanted to take a minute to just put out a general thank you for all the help and random things he has done or sent to me over the past months.
IA is always a pleasure to work with. A good friend and an excellent smith.
"It's only stupid if we die doing it, otherwise it's heroism." -Corran Horn-
Got a lot of stuff from IA (he was also very kind to gather what I bought from other people ^^), and he has been a real pleasure to deal with!
His ideas to improve the RussRep V2 luke hilt were very nice and helpful, and it turned out great now that I have received it, can't thank you enough for that bud. I also got another one of his SaberBlades, won't need to comment that one, great stuff
A 10/10 is not enough to rate my satisfaction, but there you have it hehe
I know I've already posted my feedback, but I just had to add more. Of all the many sabers I have now, the DXHD has remained my absolute favourite hilt! This is so well made, sturdy, and just so indescribably great of a saber that I can't ever put it down. Seriously, I'll walk around the house with this saber in hand (need to get a new covertec clip because my old one has broken and I can't keep it on my belt). If I could give more than 10/10 to IA, I'd gladly do so!
Much, much to late acknowledgement of Pat's work and service. I think I paid his mortgage for six months. But I digress.
Pat stands behind his quality work. Additionally, I believe that he is the best Sith saber designer, bar none. I also own his Corran Horn 2.0, which I find to be a work of are and fits my sensibilities as to what this saber should look like.
Between Darkness and Light there is the... EPIC BEAR!
Pat did my Igniter mini install on my OR Qui Gon saber a while back. I was actually on Deployment through the process and let me tell you! Pat is an amazing person and a great guy to do business with!!! I highly recommend his services in all facets!! I also got a couple of his 7/8 sabreblades and those are awesome as well!
A big 11/10 from me and yeah... Thanks so much Pat!
IA created the Corsec V3 DSE for me. I feel incredibly fortunate to have this saber. It is awesome and certainly worth the money and wait.
I am proud that my saber represents a collaboration between some of the great contributors to the IRA. From the concept render from Owen Lars to the absolutely drool worthy powder coating job by Arkhan, I couldn't be more pleased. I managed to get a blade plug created by ARKM (and another by CAZ). Darkside Engineering worked on the hilt and switches. Both IA and Corran Horn worked on the electronics...A virtual who's who of the IRA....
Also, I can't say enough about the SaberBlade. All of my other sabers get an automatic upgrade when I attach one of these to the blade holder. I didn't know what I was missing out on...
Finally, IA configured my Igniter mini. He has my saber doing things that I didn't know was possible! Naigon's board is incredible...
Definite 10/10. I hope to work with IA in the near future.

IA was recently involved with a saber purchase I made and he threw in a FREE 7/8" SabreBlade! I just received it yesterday and it's fantastic! A huge "Thank You" to Pat for doing this! Great blade and a wonderful guy to deal with. Thanks again! Highly recommended!!
I asked IA if he happened to have any oddball main leds floating around as I needed a certain color combo....he did! and sent me the led that I had been looking for and a bonus! Solid guy to deal with as always!10/10!!
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"
Jun 23, 2017 16:24:16 GMT -5
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.
Jun 23, 2017 16:26:30 GMT -5
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?
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:36 GMT -5
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.
