Well gentlemen, I got my shop setup and started soldering things yesterday so I'll be all ready for the Obi Saber when my parts get here.
Also, that's not the only Obi I will be doing...
I successfully secured SPOT NUMBER ONE on the Current Orbital Machining Obi TPM run. I'm still stunned that I got it. Acerocket messaged me and said they should be shipping in a month.
Looks like I won't need that Korbanth OWK after all
good luck getting that before the next century. He posted last year he hasn't even started on them and that there will be a long wait, you're be lucky if you get it before 2019.
Yeah those runs do take long!
However, they are almost finished. He posted pictures last month and the saber just needed a couple little things finished. He was sending them off to anodizing a few weeks ago. When I took the spot, he actually PMed me and said that the sabers should be able to ship within a month.

Shtok said that you can use the chassis without a chamber attached, so instead of filling the grenade with a chamber, you could hack the CF and stick a 3400mah 18650 in there. Methinks that would work.

Per house rules, I must request that you post pictures of the items for sale, or links that redirect to a photo hosting website. Links to TGS website aren't sufficient as they don't prove that you own the parts listed for sale. I say that because I am also on a waiting list for TGS replicas and I know that they haven't been shipped yet. It is kind of a sticky pickle. Have you contacted TGS and established an agreement that will allow you to transfer a spot or do you plan to simply ship the products to the buyer when they arrive at your door?
Also, your Link redirects directly back to THIS thread. I will send a PM to discuss.

Thanks! I'm stoked.
I love SH for everything he does, quality, service, speed, everything.
I think the reason why the Orbital Machining runs take so long is because Acerocket is the lead machinist at The Custom Saber Shop. I heard somewhere that he only works on runs on the weekend in his spare time. He spends 9-5 working on MHS parts for all of us to enjoy.

My understanding is that the Korbanth Obi TPM is closer to accurate than the K4 is. For me, the ultimate Obi ANH is the Roman's (I have one and it is EPIC), so I myself am planning to eventually pick up an Obi TPM.
Luke Skywalker, how was the quality of the Korbanth Obi TPM? I hear this current model is really really accurate. Can you confirm?

On a related note, does anyone know the specific shade of blue that the saber in ANH was? I know Luke's was Cyan. I'm starting to plan out the electronics and want to order the LED (hopefully a tri-Cree).
I thought it was time to revive this thread. After seeing the new chassis that Shtok has designed for use with Rudy Pando's CC for the MK1, I ordered a Rudy CC. I'll be getting Shtoks chassis, and attempt to still go with my bubble strip PLI idea. On top of that, I'm going to try my hardest to cram a CF8 and the biggest battery possible in there.
This is going to be fun. Like the second degree test for my black belt in Cram-Fu.
Are Rudy's cc still available?
Yes, he still has a few slots. He's on the third and likely final run right now.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.
