jcru was not eaten by lions as previously thought. Turns out that ARKM Sabers blade plugs (all versions) are a natural lion repellent. jcru liked them so much, he bought two more Graflex Razor blade plugs. Remember kids, don't go into the jungle without your ARKM Sabers Razor blade plugs. They will keep you safe from lions.... and dogs, especially scary ones.

I just finished up a commission for jcru and he couldn't have been easier to work with. He was clear and concise about what he wanted and still open to suggestions. There weren't any crazy demands or unreal time frames. He was quick to answer any questions I had for him. He never once hounded me for an update. He paid me before I even asked for it. Who does that? Really, he's everything you'd ask for. It was like some weird dream or alternate reality where somebody actually gets it. If he approaches you for a commission you'd be a fool not to take it. He's a real fan and a super nice guy. People like him are why we build these things.
JCRU subjected me to pain and suffering like I have never known ( had to redesign a 3D part for his Inseption build ). Great guy and easy to deal with, no great demands or rediculas idea's, left me to get on with his saber in peace ( the demands were before I started hahaha ).
For sure will deal with again ( I don't have a choice in the matter there's a pair of mauls awaiting my attention ).
Finished another saber for jcru and it was a pleasure as always. He's such a nice guy with realistic expectations about time frames and what we can do with these. He gets so excited when they arrive that it makes you feel like a kid at Christmas. He really makes it a lot of fun to build these. Highly recommended, for sure.
jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.

Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.

Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from

ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.

Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several

Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.

Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.
Sept 23, 2017 16:30:26 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
