On my way to Arkham's Asylum. You still running that in the basement? Actually, my avatar is the Scarecrow Beast from Samhain/Danzig. I loved it growing up. Still do! Thanks again for the plug. Like I said, I wish I was doing more with the build. I can always use it in another one, though.
I recently bought an awesome completed SH V2 from Scarecrow. Not only was the saber top notch, the communication before during and since the transaction has been superb. I would not hesitate to do business with again. Highly recommended. 10/10

What an amazing experience I had with contracting out my leathal Crystal frog apprentice kit to install a crystal focus 8. I sent my kit to him and he quoted me an extremely fare price and the turnaround was extrordarney I was shocked by the speed and precession of his work not only did he get me my saber back quick and it was extremely well built but the communication was superb video's with instructions for battery installation and tips on what best suits this particular saber best. I have dealt with many top builder's and in my opinion this experience surpassed some of them in many ways I can truly tell he understands what it is to be a saber fan and does all he can to make it an absolute pleasurable experience for us. I absolutely hope to do more business in the future and definitely recommend anyone else do the same. Thank you again scarecrow for the awesome saber and the lil extras you thought to add to make my life with this saber easier. You absolutely deserve a 10/10 sincerely, sithlordboston
Where to begin? I met Crow several months ago on here, we were just conversing like two normal people on here. This was before he became moderator. So, we discussed a few things off site by PM, but I didn't actually catch on right away that he did commissions for building sabers. I just thought he was some guy I was busting balls with.
So, he had posted a SH V2 that he made. And then he made the Frog for Grayson during the holidays. So, I said, do you want to do a commission for me? We started talking about doing a Vader Chassis Graflex, and took it from there. I mentioned I had a big box of V2 parts, to make a complete SH V2, soundcards, everything. So, he made that one. So, now he has built me a KR Sabers Hero.
Meanwhile, Crow used to be the best kept secret on here, that is quickly changing. Today on Sesame Street, Elmo the Musical had on the "Friendly Froggy Five" a barbershop Quintet of muppet frogs. I said to my wife, Crow's built more Frogs than the amt on the tv right now, maybe double that.
His attention to detail is off the charts. He's definitely not the Soup Nazi. Everything is built to order. He asks you your opinion on everything. On the rare occasion you can't come up with an idea, he'll make it up as he goes along. No problem. I often PM him to talk about stuff beyond the commissions. Well, he knows what I'm all about. He's not charging an arm and a leg for A+++ service on these builds, but I'm also not looking to resell the sabers either for a profit. So, it goes both ways.
I lucked out. I have done commissions with some really great sabersmiths, and I still have a couple outstanding out there with other guys: Wayne, Jordan, and Jango Fett (on FX) which I am completely grateful for their business. But crossing paths with Crow has been nothing but good fortune all around. Needless to say, there will be more builds in the future. Thanks again for everything, my friend.
Purchased a Luke KR Hero saber from scarecrow. It's a real beauty. A great compliment to my V2. Scarecrow was great to work with. He answered my many questions and provided detailed (let me share with you some details) instructions on how to use the saber. He took ownership of any issues and resolved them promptly.
I recently commissioned Scarecrow for a saber build. Awesome communication with frequent updates throughout the build. As with a previous saber I purchased from Scarecrow, a nice instructional video was provided. Helps to display the quality of the build, as well as demonstrate functionality, much appreciated. Will definitely do business with again. Two thumbs up from the Fonz.
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"
Jun 23, 2017 16:24:16 GMT -5
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."
Jun 23, 2017 16:26:53 GMT -5
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?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
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.
