1) Secret Project Hint Number 1: Lord Vader had a secret ___________, the story line of two very popular video games. 2) Please send me your e-mail address via PM or PM me for mine. We'll have an e-mail chain all together so everyone is clear, and you can get all of your 1) You will pay me $1,200 via PayPal, Gifted. You show proof of the transaction on your end, I show the receipt of it on my end. Once the company sees this, you effectively are the owner of my account and original deposit of $1,200 and I get Das Boot. No, not the one with beer, more like the one with a hidden knife in the sole. I am very sad about this.
I have updated everyone who has responded, so it's basically a game or out-buying your competition if it dares to come to that.

Hello saber fans,
I jumped into a saber project, an extremely limited and amazing micro production run of an extremely popular saber design with the industries top saber smiths/machinists behind it, but I am unable to meet my financial obligations due to some unforeseen circumstances. I am selling my spot in this run, but I cannot advertise any specific details, and you must agree to respect the privacy/secrecy of this build with the company spearheading the project. What I can tell you is that my initial deposit is $1,200, and this just about 1/3 of the total cost, so yeah, this is a VERY serious built that will be nothing short of top of the line and spectacular. Estimated final cost is $3,825. There is plenty of flexibility in the timing of the remaining 2 deposits of approximately $1,200 each, so you won't need to cough up $2425 in the next month or two.
Some Very Sparse Details:
Beautifully Machined Hilt - A New Favorite and Very Popular Design but with Extremely Limited Availability without anything special, just a plane Jane bare bones hilt
Crystal chamber/chassis design made out of a very large amount of tiny, very detailed, hand machined METAL parts (no 3D printed plastic minus what secures the board/battery for safety)
Crystal Focus v8 + RGB + Color Mixing + Amazing Sound Fonts + Solo's Hold Battery (not sure which one is actually being used for the crystal focus, I did not ask)
Beautiful Leather Wrap Covering the Chassis/Crystal Chamber
Blade + Charger Included
And there is some flexibility in the final build itself once they go to the small group of amazing Saber Smiths doing the installs
If you're a fan of Harp, Goodman, Darth Alice, Martin Breyer, Roland Lightsabers, and that caliber of custom machining with the most seamless and beautiful electronic installs, you definitely want this ticket in. I am not making any money selling my spot, I just wish to break even. If for some reason I get 20 people who want this build spot, feel free to grease the deal, but I'm not looking to gouge. I highly doubt there will be another chance to buy in to this saber run, it would be a miracle if one even came up for sale, so don't pass this up if you are a serious collector. I am somewhere between furious and depressed letting this go while praying for a miracle to happen.
Please send me a PM if you are interested in more information, please include your best method of contact and your Facebook Page, and I will relay this privately/confidentially to the company in charge of the project. They will reach out to you, and once they receive your initial $1,200 deposit, my spot will be forfeit and I'll be refunded my $1,200 deposit back from the company. You will not be paying me directly for my spot to ensure your money is safe and protected under PayPal's Buyer Protection. I am looking to sell my spot as quickly as possible, so if you cannot put down $1,200 right now, need to sell a lightsaber to bankroll it, need your next paycheck, please inquire but only once you have the money to buy my spot. This is a PAYPAL ONLY transaction.
SERIOUS INQUIRIES FROM SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE!

I got a used One Replica's Qui-gon, and it will need some love, but the main problem right now was a horrible speaker installation inside the pommel (speaker is pointed up, wired from behind and glued to all heck). I have my doubts that things will look good once the speaker is removed, but I"d prefer to have a vented pommel anyway. Regardless, I just need something clean to start with, solid or vented, silver or black or unfinished, doesn't really matter. I was just wondering if anything from TCSS might work, or what the threading might be so I can search for a replacement pommel. Also, if anyone happens to know the inner diameter of the saber, that would be great as whatever chassis they put in there, well, there's more glue going on and I just hope the I2 board in there is recoverable. Thank you anyone/everyone in advance for any help you may be able to offer!

Just to be clear, and this is not directed at anyone in particular: shipping for a single blade is $9.97, and there's about $5 in packaging materials that are easily reusable, including a blade storage tube/protective sleeve, which is what I use to store and protect my own blades. PayPal fees and shipping are included in the price, so I am making back about $7-$8 on blades that cost me $40+ each to purchase. The pricing is more than reasonable all things considered. Please be respectful of that, and do not try to negotiate a deal with me unless you want to at least purchase 2 or more blades at a time. Thank you all.

I'm trying to find a place that does very bright anodizing and/or powder-coating. I'm talking neon color bright. I have inquired with TCSS and Saberforge, they are not able to do what I want at this time. I'm looking for reasonable pricing at a place that is ideally familiar with custom sabers, but whatever it takes to get it done and done right!

For a variety of reasons, I ended up with just too many blades. These have been fitted into a saber once or twice, illuminated, removed, and then stored safely. No swinging, no clashing. They are like new, but may have a scratch or mark from a blade retention screw and very difficult to see surface scratches at the bottom of the blade. Every one is from The Custom Saber Shop, all specs listed below. Each blade is $10 off new price. Fees and USPS Priority Mail are INCLUDED in the price, so this is a killer deal. I'm basically profiting about $12 a blade here.
All blades are sealed in 2" 6mm plastic bags and then put inside a clear plastic tube sealed on both ends for protection during shipping (with more than enough bubble wrap). The tube also makes for a great way to store your blades safely from scratches, dust, etc., which is a nice added ($5) bonus considering Vader's Vault charges you $1.50 for a $0.05 cap to keep dust out of your blade.

Maybe I have some things that would be of more benefit to your horrible circumstances than just $700. But, maybe not. PM me if you'd like. I hope the dust settles and an insurance check lands your way quickly.

If someone has one they can part ways with, it's to help me build a graflex for my 5 year old nephew as a Christmas gift. He likes the features and intuition of the board, and I have a 2.0 graflex with a chassis and a NBv3 installed, so the swap should be very simple and about the least expensive option as the boards are supposed to be the same dimensions. I wish the NBv4 release included an aux switch, as that pretty much was the deal breaker as a viable replacement board to implement RGB.
I know it's not likely, but fingers crossed someone has one they'll sell for a reasonable price for a great kid who has only just seen the original unaltered trilogy. Cheers!
GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.
