i have asked many times to take mine as is and have it finished elsewhere, and as there is no money to be made on this run now and any money left to pay is for the install and components etc so i dont see why its not an option tbh, it would speed things up for people and take some of the load/preassure off the installers etc, it makes perfect sense imo

its crazy to think this run is 6 and a half yrs running now and in that time iv had 2 childeren purchased a house and built an extention and paid off 2 car loans lol,
i would also have walked away long ago if i wasnt in it for so much $$

Wait, I'm confused.

According to this post back in March:
Huge update:

So these are back from the anodizer.  MH will be sending the hilts out to the installers next week.
I was under the assumption that the hilts were already sent out to the installers sometime back in April.


However, with the most recent update post:
I am not certain if anyone knows about the global component shortage?  Unfortunately I am now waiting on boards.
I have ALL other components in my hands and ready to send to installers as soon as MH sends the hilts and the boards.  Of course, no need for him to ship anything until we have the freaking boards.
Was this a known problem back in March/April 2021?
The lack of consistent + timely communication, and  walking back of info is somewhat concerning  :cry:

I'm still holding out hope and still looking forward to a pixel upgrade, but dang. 6 years. It's been a while.

I have responded to all PM's from today.  I am gone this weekend and with no computer access, I cannot answer anything more until I return on Monday, so if I don't answer you after I post this, please wait until Monday for a response.

It is very sad that no new images will be released for a long time.
I am very anxious to see if it will really be completed.

Guys, yes the shortage has been going on since last year.  I am not sure if you watch the news but it has been bad.  I will not get into all I have had to do to get parts to make boards because it involves other companies but it has been very difficult to get parts...I can't use parts that were purchased by or for other companies.  Nobody has walked back a single thing.  I thought I was going to be able to send them back then because I thought I had a line on parts then but it didnt work out.  I was willing to pay over $20 for one single component but it fell through. 

This run has been frustrating I know to everyone involved and it has seemed like one thing after the other has come up but they should be going to the installers next week and hopefully put an end to this nightmare.

I realize my absence is troubling but I just do not have the time to come on here much.  I have told people a few times to email OR PM me with questions but I got neither. 

I have the parts to finish enough boards now and will be doing so this weekend so that I can send the sabers to the installers.

Here is a pic for everyone.

Joker, yes they will be completed but I understand the concern.  I have been honest with everyone from the start.  The biggest thing was the anodizing...I wish I had just had them machined where I could have powder coated them now.  I didnt realize so few places would do a glossy black anodizing.  I should have done more research on it before I started the run.
