Hello everyone, I have been asked so many times if I would make more of these sabers available.
You guys know that I have a lot on my plate, and I am trying to finish stuff, I really appreciate all your support..
After the Ahsokas go out which is underway now, and some odds and ends wrap on some commissions in October/November there will be more on a very limited Production/Collaboration with the wonderful artists I work with here on the IRA.
If it happened, it would take place this winter. I cannot stand winter( not that its relevant), and I won't put a date on it until this other stuff is finished or close to being done. There is some stuff I have to take care of first, and family related matters that need me.
We can revisit this ASAP, but the responsible thing is to clear the board first..
Hopefully this will get read, and answer that question for any curiosity. There is another saber that is in the works, and its gonna be really great.

Post here if you want one, there might only be a dozen to 20 in the run. Please only post if you truly want to commit. I will stop at a very low number probably a bakers dozen to max 20 only. The cost will reflect the small batch.
I am only going to do limited stuff from now on, and yes I am posting this because the biggest project we have ever done is going to finally be done soon. This is reservation list, not a actual run.
Obishane will be providing service on Full boogies.
I'd sell one of my kidneys if it meant I could get another full boogie. Unfortunately, I don't know any black market types and most of the smugglers in the cantina would try to take both kidneys. It IS a wretched hive of villainy after all.
I know you probably can't give a firm price yet but what would a 12 unit run empty run go for?
They will be a much smaller production.
I have to do the math on the project taking into account all the factors involved. They will be a little more expensive then a larger production because of the amount of work/materials involved. I will make more info available.
First thing is first.

Han Solo: "I use them for smuggling. I never thought I'd be smuggling myself in them. This is ridiculous. "
Following up on previous post. I'm also very curious about the new saber that you're working on, so the question is at this point, which would you think be the lesser priced build; the TFU2 or the new saber?
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.
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.
