This was actually my very first saber design. When I first dicovered this hobby back in the summer of 2009. I was overly excited to build my first saber. My design originally started out as a tonfa, since I didn't have the money to order the parts needed for it right away, my plans just sat on my desk for about a month & half. I just keeped thinking about it. It changed so many times. Then the addiction kicked in. I started planning other builds. I had so many ideas & hilt designs going through my head. I decieded to put my saber on hold & build my families sabers first. Their sabers were a little more simple than mine. So I beleive this would be my 7th completed saber. I put a lot of thought into this one. It has 2 white P4s with purple Lee filters, the old hasbro Dooku board, Momentay red ring av switch, speaker from TCSS, a crystal chamber, 14' of black leather saddle string, & 2- 1" thin walled trans white blades with 6' of cellophane in them.
The crystal chamber is under the sound grill in the middle.
You can the see the crtstal chamber glowing. It's an acrylic purple crystal with a purple led in it.
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"

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.
