"Deep Six" a fundraiser build
This is an MHS build done for a local fundraiser.
The name of the saber was a play on words, because of the design (which sort of reminded me of a torpedo), and the 6 fonts preloaded on the Spark Color 2 board.
Main hilt: MHS parts with custom paint and modification. Soundboard: Spark Color 2 from Naigon's Electronic Creations Main LED: NECree RGB from NEC Battery: Orbtronics 3.7v 18650 3400mah 10A PCB Speaker: 2W premium. Switches: 12mm lit AV "Carbonite" Control Box from Solo's Hold 3D Printed Chassis from GOTH 3Designs

I keep watching this video to see that look on your face when your changing colors. That needs to be on Naigon's site somewhere. It makes me want to buy one. It's great that you're doing this for a fundraiser, too. Somebody's going to be very happy.
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.
