TCSS Custom Work on my saber! Check it!!!
« on: June 24, 2010, 02:17:46 PM »
This saber started life as a totally different saber. I have been fooling with it for about a year. A few months back I got my hands on an Acerocket Obi AotC Pommel and decided to put it on this saber. Then I decided to fix the shrouds I had, originally they were sinktube and being my first effort with a dremel it was not good. Then I contacted Tim at TCSS and asked him if he would be so kind as to cut me some new shrouds out of the overlay material he sells in the store. After many emails back and forth of me trying to explain and Tim trying not to get fed up with my shananagins finally I had two new shrouds.

My original drawing to Tim:


My second attempt to be more clear:


Tim's response proofs:




The finished product:






The saber:






Specs:
MR Vader sound
Red AV switch
4 AAA NiMh rechargeables
P4 White w/ Lee fiters
Custom shrouds by Tim
Powder Coat by Tim
Obi Pommel by Acerocket
MHS parts

I usually try to do as much of leg work (cutting/drilling) as I can, but I have very limited tools and frankly, I sometimes just was a pro to do it for me! I highly recommend the custom work service TCSS does. Tim gets it done!

Yes, Tim's work is excellent.
From end to end it is 14.5 inches. By far my longest saber.

Do you mean "Super sweet, man." or that Tim is a super-sweet man?
