I built this saber for my Step Father Dave, as a Fathers Day gift. He was a fencer in collage, and he loves mid evil swords, so I designed him curved hilt saber, with a crystal pommel. The crystal pommel is a sink knob with a green Christmas led in it. The hilt has a guarded latching switch, P4 green led with resistor, 1" thin walled polyC blade with a TCSS blade diffuser in it, & craft foam grips with double sided duct tape. This was my 8th saber.
I've now posted pics of every saber I've built in the past 15 months. I didn't mean to post them out of order. I didn't plan on posting them all. Then I decieded what the heck. I want to thank everyone for checking out my sabers. Thank you.
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.
