Just finished the first of many sabers. This is an Aligo Saber. It is meant to be a nice saber but very affordable. They also come with custom hand engraving. This particular saber has the Jedi Order symbol engraved in it. The hilt was made by DoClo. It has a weighted pommel for great balance. And it does have great balance! Feels very good in the hands and could be a great dueling saber.
This saber has a Green Rebel 2010 DVD Hasbro econo sound 3.7 Lith Ion batts Recharge port Green ring AV switch All set into an electrical tube for protection (works like a chassis) Will be changing the blade retention screw before it is shipped off Monday. The covertech wheel is slightly off set from the AV switch so that the AV switch is not directly against the leg when wearing it. Also is put the engraving on the out side so it can be seen from the side. Here are the pictures: (any thumbnails are clickable)
More to come soon!

I like this saber. Well done. I'm a big fan of the grip section (as it seems many people are as well) what is it made from? I have a project that I'm working on and it may be just the type of thing I'm looking for.
Keep pumping them out, they look great man!

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.
