FYI, LordBlako has an INCREDIBLE Knights of the Fallen Empire soundfont that you HAVE to download and have on this saber. I have it on most of my CF sabers, coupled with a wicked yellow blade profile. He captured all of the sounds from the cinematic perfectly. It's probably my favorite sound font, honestly. It's just flat out WICKED !!
My other favorite is Madcow's Hoth, but that's irrelevant to this discussion.
Is there a notable difference between the TCSS premium speaker and the Railmaster? I've never used the Railmaster but I would if it's a step up in sound quality.
Same thing Scott said. The railmaster is really nice. The TCSS premium is almost useless. I go for the bass speaker most of the time because I personally think it's the loudest and best sounding. That's the 2W Veco from TCSS.

I have wanted a SH TFU2 since the first run was announced, but I have to draw the line somewhere. I can't spend that kind of cash on an empty, and I don't buy completes. That is NOT TO SAY THAT THE SH TFU2 isn't worth the cash, because it IS. Frankly, IT IS. It is up there with the best Orbital Machining sabers, and the very upper Echelon of the finest sabers ever made. Aaron is undisputedly one of the (few) absolute best Lightsaber Machinists on earth. I have infinite love for SH. I would put him up against Harp and Acrocket and anyone else in terms of skill and vision. I have just not found myself in a position to be able to afford a TFU2 while a run was going.
So I sit back and admire all the pictures. The SH TFU2 is one of the most gorgeous sabers on earth. I really hope someone holds onto an empty and sells it to me sometime in the future.

Hey sandpeople , trypwyr might be on the market soon! LOL. I feel you bud. I have something like 10k in sabers and props, and my GF has gotten to the point that she just laughs and says "You do you, Booboo". Then I buy another. Then complain about how broke I am. Then console myself by buying another even rarer one. Then cry because I spent $750 on an empty saber (COUGH, Orbital Obi). It's a vicious circle.
Yes, that's how much I spent on the OM without internals. Shut up everyone. It's the best TPM Obi EVER. JEEZE.

A SH bladeholder will also fit in a Roman's Graflex, but you have to dremel the crap out of the inside of the RG to knock off the half inch of crusty nickel plating on the inside, and a bit of brass. The pin holes don't line up perfectly, but that's not Aarons issue. Take a set of calipers around a romans upper... Super inconsistent in spacing, just about everywhere.

TGS posted an update today with a sneak peak of the stamping on the bottom of a tube. It looks PHENOMENAL. Everything is pointing to these guys absolutely hitting it out of the park. I am getting really ancy, in a good way. Their attention to detail is just awesome.
I don't think these are going to have the same issues others recently did with QC and specs because the TGS guys are apparently putting hands on protos and revisions at every stage of manufacturing.
I'm guessing he's busy. Those look like dyed quartz to me, def not printed. I'll go halvsies in on them if you want to split the crystals. I can use a few for my Obi ANH build. I need a couple of skinny ones.
Okay so I CAN'T be the only one thinking that this would be awesome with 3 monitors... 27" in front and some 24" windows
I wanted to modify it and run triple but it wouldn't fit through the door. However... I didn't think of mounting the other two monitors at 90 degree angles to the main monitor like windows... That would work. There is enough room for that. Hmmmm.
let the record show that darthben123 came up with that idea. He gets the credit if I end up running triple.
No need for a buffer tube with a .22 drop in kit so you could make it live fire and still be screen accurate.
Yup, yup. It's hardly even modified (going from memory).
By modified, I meant assembled wit a few glue on parts. lol. The barrel/shroud is custom but easy to recreate, and there are some details in the magwell area that could be easily 3D printed and glued on.
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"
Jun 23, 2017 16:24:16 GMT -5
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.
Jun 23, 2017 16:26:30 GMT -5
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."
Jun 23, 2017 16:26:53 GMT -5
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?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
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.
