First let me apologize for the pics. They are terrible. My wife broke our camera on Halloween. :-x I had to use my video camera to shoot these, & the video camera on my lap top for the video. This saber looks great. My pics just don't do it justice. This saber was built for Darth Blasphemous. He really liked the trooper hilt I built for Corey & asked if I could do a Shadow Trooper hilt for him with out it looking like a black & grey version of Coreys or Mcquarries. So I tweaked my trooper design & made it look a little darker. Here are the specs.
The hilt is all pvc construction, pvc speaker chamber, TCSS premium speaker, round 3 AAA battery holder, black covertec wheel, AV red dot mom switch with bezel, Green Goblin sound board, 3/4" copper end cap led assembly(red p4, lens & holder), TCSS trans white 1" thick walled blade stock with out diffuser.
I'm really quite proud of this saber. Pleas don't judge by the pics. Thanks
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.
