Figured I'd start this for a one-stop shop than let a zillion folks ask their inevitable questions in a zillion threads.

Anyway. GER2. Am I reading it right that the PC is in the concave portions between the teeth, or is it just on the teeth themselves?

The concave portions between the ribs. ;)

Eeeexcellent. That's what I thought (and hoped) it was, but I wasn't sure.

Now I just have to wait for US2.1s to be stocked, and to get back stateside with my tools. (At least I'll start saving on shipping?)

Can you powdercoat the grooves in the fluted MHS parts but leave the rest of the part bear metal?

It costs $5 extra as Tim must put the part in the lathe after it's baked and remove the excess Powder Coat.

I was just curious, is the listed price for powder coating in the saber builder accurate, or has it changed?

powder coating SHOULD be $12.50 if I recall when making it??

but if you need the part MACHINED afterwards..that is an extra fee ABOVE the powder caoting fee..

make sense?

I have a question about Powder Coating Options...

In the saberbuilder, the custom powdering for the choke section (Style 1, CH12 custom powder coating) made the bare metal area look like xtreme chrome. This is correct.

Seeing as I want that area to match the pommel and the blade holder, can I get Tim to powder coat this middle area xtreme chrome, while keeping the rest of the choke solar flat black as originally intended?

Thank you

You will have to email Tim about that. I think that he prefers not to do two color parts, but he may be able to.

Are there options for blade holder 18???

That's a new blade holder, Tim hasn't put up options yet. Be patient :p

Wow, quick Maul! Mainly wanted to see if there were going to be options. Thanks!
