No worries, MH, er Chewie. Thanks for the update. I know these sabers will be incredible and well worth the wait!

OK guys I know I have PMed everyone on the run a while back but wanted to publicly post updates to make it easier.

As I mentioned with the new contracts my company has gotten I have just been swamped for the last 6 months or so but I have a little help now (new tech south of me) and although I will still be much busier I am getting a little more free time to work on these.  I do apologize that it went out of my time frame quickly but I did not know when I started the run that we would be getting these new contracts that would try to work me to death (or I would have never started the run).

That said here are my updates so far.

The necks are done (brass and copper) and right now I am working on the emitters (part of the emitters is done) and grenades.  I have to get some new brass for the neck ring because I got the wrong size when I ordered (didn't realize until I started machining).  What I have will work but is just too big and will cause too much waste of material and time.  I will get that ordered today or tomorrow so I can get them knocked out.  I hope to have those finished in a couple of weeks and then start the installs.  I am going to push to try and get these knocked out as soon as I can.  I am "hopeful" that I can have them all finished and start shipping by the end of Feb and that is a realistic goal if things stay like now (steady but not overwhelming like before).  I appreciate the patience that everyone has shown through the delays.  It has taught me that I may probably never do a run on my own again unless I get a different job.

As always feel free to PM or email me if you have any concerns or questions.

I will post some pics this weekend.

OK here is a progress pic.  I know it doesn't look like much but it represents hours of machining time for me.  turning down the copper and brass pieces, parting them, threading them, grooving them all in the exact same place and cutting them down to the exact same size.  And of course there is the blade holder that takes a little time as well (but its only one so far).

The neck ring is not the correct one.  It is one I made a while back when making the first hybrid saber.  The dimensions are just off a little.  I am just showing it on the neck piece for reference.







I hope to have all the blade holders done by the end of next weekend and then I will move to the grenade section.  Once the new brass piece comes in I can finish the neck ring.

again thanks for the patience and hopefully I will be able to continue the progress I am making now.

Looking good! Is that Blade holder style #8? When you can, anyway to show that with blade holder style#16 side by side?

It is #8.  The next one I do will make sure it's #16 and show a side by side for you.
