I emailed the seller to find out more about the saber... He didn't know who made it, but thought that it was about 12 years old. He added that the transistors were supposedly the same ones in the original prop.
I've wanted a rock-solid Obi Wan for a long time (though ideally with electronics)... Not sure that this is the one for me, but would really welcome your thoughts!
Thanks, guys - much appreciated. I saw that the vanes on the top of the grenade weren't visible from the bottom and began to wonder. Guess I'm learning a little bit after all! Thanks again for your guidance.
If anyone has an Obi ANH out there, drop me a line.
Seller claims that it's a Romans, but you never know (and I don't have the experience to judge). The thing that's a little odd to me is that the disassembled pics look a lot like the ones on Roman's site. That could be on purpose, of course...
Again, your input is most appreciated!

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.
