    Thanks CET. I've found that dremel, powder coating, building the saber is the easy part for me. I hate wiring them.

    My new/old saber

    Very nice Cannibal! I just did a shroud with etching too. And I feel your pain when it comes to cutting the pattern out by hand.

    Hey thanks a bunch Obi! I've never weathered a hilt to this level before, it's a new learning experience for me. I still have to add a few more layers to it, but I wanted to wait until the first few...

    First one up is a new one for my son since he sold his last...

    Keep reading the forums until September. There is so much to take in that it can seem overwhelming. But the more info you absorb everything will start to fall in place.

    I promise you, the primer is gray. That hilt is terribly difficult to take pictures of with the white paint. There is a lot of small nicks and scratches in the paint, and the little bit of grime...

    These are mostly shelf queens save for the occasional time my son and I goof off. Should it have a D ring or covertech, probably. But it doesn't bother me that it's missing. The little greebly on the...

    The wide sections of leather are stitched on under the shroud. But they still wouldn't stop moving around, so yes they are glued in a few spots. The really thin sections are glued on all the way...

    If you can wait, I have an order in with Tim right now for a very basic MHS based Qui Gon. I started one back in 2010 that I never finished, the new one will be along the same lines as that one....

    Most of the time I just leave the back section off until my son and I start goofing off. Between that and the deep sleep mode on the NB I think I've charged it once in the last 2 months.

    I've posted this saber before years ago, but that was when it was a Jedi hilt. Now that its a Sith I thought I'd post the new stuff.

    A short goodbye to TCSS

    I recently sold everything related to sabers. I just don't have the time, money, ability, etc, etc,etc. This was easier than sending individual pm's to those that know me. Been pretty cool watching...
  21. Found a different method for adding rust to a hilt

    So after having one of my sabers "weathered" for me, I decided I'm gonna go a little further with it. Over all make it look like a very neglected, abused, rusty hilt. I was gonna try Eastern57's...

    I'm pretty sure he took the blade holder off. Because the lens and holder are missing. The way the pics are is exactly how I recieved it. So that being said, I think I'm gonna write up an invoice for...

    I'm not sure what he did. He wasn't at the shop today. The saber was laying up against my tool box when I got there. Problem is it's not my immediate boss. He's our regional vp of sales, and pretty...
