Woodchuck here. I just finished making this hilt for a lady who is working on a Ventress costume. It is solid wood, no access for any electronics, as she requested. Seems she needs two of them to complete her costume.

Anyone know if woodchuck is still in business? Had something I wanted to see about having him make, but his original weblink is shuttered and he hasn't been on here 'per his profile' in over a year. He was really good at what he did too.
He was last on therpf.com, 2 days ago with his latest post being 4 weeks ago. His username there is "The WoodChuck". You could try there. Other than that, you might be able to convince a mod to give out his email. Like bribe them or something. Seriously though, IMHO, all Consortium members and Imperial Armory members should be required to provide a current email address for customer's to use to contact them, in order to be allowed to do business here.
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.
