It is with great pleasure that I would like to share these sabers with you today. They are without a doubt the most special project I have worked on yet (and yes, probably the most expensive).
This also happens to be my most extensive build to date, and I would like to thank drjedi for letting me take care of him on this one. It is always a pleasure to deal with Solo's Hold's work, and this project is quite satisfying as it gave me the chance to create a complete system for drjedi. Other than modifying the CF and installing it ,this also includes hand painting the hilt, rotating piston kill keys, blade plugs and 7/8" blades with lathed couplers and shine through tips to match my interpretation of the screen accurate look. Now, with any interpretation of something like a cartoon saber you are going to take some liberties. This is just what I think it would look like if it were to exist in real life. I wasn't a clone wars fan until recently and you might be able to guess why.
Yours truly 100% hand painted Force Witch hilts by Solo's Hold Single Cell Hacked CF 7.5 Tri-Cree Xp-E2 Red/Royal Blue/Green Wired for Psuedo Color Mixing Mode Solo's Hold High Drain 18650 Solo's Hold Speaker Switchcraft In-Hilt Recharge R.I.C.E port in hilt Custom lathed blade plugs inspired by the Clone Wars Season 1 Ep.1 look Custom lathed piston style kill keys inspired by the same episode

As always Thanks for looking and MTFBWY!

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.

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.
