OK sorry for the delay but I was waiting on a couple of things before I posted.
Everything is clear so I will be offering the run. The saber will be based on this saber:Hybrid MHS Obi with real brass and copper thin neck...run interest posted page 3
The run will be limited to 10 and if it fills up then its full. If not I will probably leave it open for a week before I close it and order the parts. If its closed and someone wants in later (if it doesn't reach 10) please PM me and we will discuss the possibility. Once I close the order and get deposits I will be ordering all the materials I need. I will post progress pics in this or a new thread.
I am offering a few options and when you post you are ready to pay the deposit you will need to specify what the options you want are.
The saber will be $550 plus shipping. To be on the run you will need to paypal me half of the money ($275) and I will ask for the remainder when I am finished. I am hopeful to finish it by the end of September but do not be surprised if I am able to finish before (a lot depends on work and how smoothly my machine work goes).
To secure your spot post in this thread that you are ready to pay the deposit and what your options are. I will PM you after that (when I am on so do not worry if there is a little delay) and give you my paypal address to make the deposit. I think that is the best way so I do not have to refund anyone just in case it goes over 10.
OK here are the options and I want you to list them just like the example I will give below.First option
is the emitter. You can have the emitter I did on the other saber which is blade holder 16 or you can have the more traditional blade holder 8 (but it will be cut to fit over my blade holder like the other saber).Second option
is the grenade. You can have either 6 or 8 groove (these are the grooves that go from the top to the bottom not the circular grooves). If you want just want to be different and use a different number of grooves that is doable as well if I have the correct spacer (I have 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24) for my rotary table.Third option
is the side greeblies. I have someone machining the star for me so that is an option. You can have no greeblies, a star and copper stud, a transistor and copper stud, or two transistors.Fourth option
is the LED. You can have either a rebel or a cree. The difference is the color. The Rebel is a light blue (kind of sky blue color) and the cree is a more pure blue. Fifth option
is the activation card. You can have either the PJ brass activation card or a bubble strip. If you choose the bubble strip it will be silver under it (aluminum tape). Talking with the owner of the other saber the copper wears where it contacts the button (from the pressure even though it has protection under it).Sixth option
is D ring, Covertec or NO belt clip.Seventh option
is the FoC color. You can have W, G, A, R, or it can be full power (all blue no separate FoC color...just flicker during FoC)
The sabers will come with a CS2 but if you want a different board you can PM me for a quote.
They will take a 7/8th blade but will not come with one.
Here is an example of how I want you to list your preferences.
blade holder 16
star and copper stud
Rebel (light blue) LED
brass activation card
Ready to pay deposit.
Please keep in mind that once you choose your options they are not to be changed especially after I order parts. If you really want to change it BEFORE I order parts you can PM me to talk about it (do not want changes in the post that I may miss).When you pay your deposit please put your forum name in the PayPal notes so I can keep up with who the deposit came from. Also use normal payment for goods.
FAQs---I will add questions I get in case others have the same question. I try to remember to cover all this stuff but forget and instead of redoing the main text I will just add the question and answer below.
For the most part look at the other saber I built to answer most questions. It will be basically the same except for the options you choose, sound board (including RGB and external RICE port) and the copper on the bubble strip.
---will it have in hilt recharge? Yes it will have a 2.1mm recharge port in the pommel.
---Is FoC extra? No it is included in the price.
---will it have touch plate activation? Yes but I prefer to call it pressure plate activation ;) . I do not do any clamp/card type switches without using this method.
