That is a gorgeous piece. My Vintage ESB w/CF5 is my most coveted saber. I haven't seen it in almost a year but I'm looking forward to the day I get it back. Excellent review! It looks so much like a Graflex it is unbelievable.
That is a beautiful piece. Every since I watched A New Hope back in the late 70's, I have wanted to get my hands on one of Luke's sabers. But of course every time I would come across one I wouldn't have the money for it. I would really like to see your entire Star Wars collection. From the pictures that you have posted I have noticed some things in the background that look very interesting.
I'll release reviews from each collectable. My entire collection ain't displayed, some of them are in a closet behind closed doors. I simply haven't got space to display them all. One interesting fact about my collection, I don't own any screen seen Darth Vader lightsabers, from episodes 4 to 6. These replicas cost a lot and I havent bought anything in many years until this spring. Whenever I happend to pick a piece, the creditcards bills follow, that's a fact.

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.
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.
