I'm more than likely to go with wannawanga for my T-grips. I don't really feel like putting any of my money towards any sort of Roman Graflex products. There is another thread on here though in which SH has discussed about making aluminum T-tracks but I don't think that it generated too much interest to warrant him to actually make em.

Somebody suckered me into buying a Roman's Graflex. I won't say any names but their initials are scarecrow! LOL Just kidding, I was well aware of the issue with the blade holder when I purchased it from you. I was planning on machining a blade holder myself if no one came up with one. I was a little disappointed about the issue with the bunny ears, but I do have a set I have been saving for over 5 years I can use on it if I need to. I don't really blame Roman for the blade holder issue. He had his hands full just trying to get vendors to make the hilts. That is what happens when you outsource something. No matter how perfect the CAD files are and how much pride you yourself take in you work, you just can't control someone else actually giving a crap about the quality of their work.
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.
