Vader's Vault Services and Build Log

Vader’s Vault is a collaborative effort by Fenderbender and Allaerra aka MACE WINDU and LUMINARA UNDULI here on the FX-SABERS forums.  We build one-of-a-kind, heirloom quality, custom sabers and offer a variety of special order, conversion and machine work to the lightsaber community.  We are a husband and wife team with a love for all things Science-Fiction and Fantasy and the Star Wars universe especially. Making saber collectibles is a full time vocation for us and is one of the ways we support our family.  Many thanks to Master Yoda for allowing us to have our own section on the FX-Sabers forums!  Thanks also to Jango Fett for allowing us to use some of his verbiage and fee structures.

Vader’s Vault offers a large array of services and we have listed the most common requests below.  If you need something done that you do not see listed here, shoot us an email or a PM and we will get you a quote.  If it is something we don’t do, we’ll give you names of reputable sabersmiths who do. Labor Fees are included in the quoted price unless otherwise indicated.  All prices are subject to change.  Prices DO NOT include shipping fees, unless otherwise indicated.  All US shipments are sent USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation, with the exception of any small parts or pieces which may go USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation.  All orders over $250 will be insured and require signature confirmation.  International customers please note, we offer 3 shipping methods in order of cost.  USPS Priority Mail International, USPS Express Mail International, and USPS Global Express Guaranteed.   All international shipments must be insured, no exceptions.  All deposits are non-refundable.

Vader's Vault Current Build Log:

In progress:

Removed until we can go through our spreadsheet and update.  We are currently quite far behind but are working round the clock to try to get caught up.  Thanks so much to all of our loyal customers for your business and your patience.  We will do our best to continue to put 100% in every single build and, while we may be slow we will continue to uphold the highest quality standards using the best available electronics and materials.

Build Log Disclaimer:

We are full time sabersmiths.  While we do work on sabersmithing almost every single day, it may not always be customer builds that we are working on at any given moment.  We reserve the right to work on Vader's Vault frontline inventory as well.  In addition, we do not work on one customer build at a time.  It is not efficient to work this way.  We always have several projects being worked on at any one time.  This allows us to get every customer taken care of in a timely manner.  Quoted timeframes are estimates and not set in stone.  We make every effort to adhere to them, but occasionally stuff happens.

NO MORE ORDERS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

For the first time ever, Vader’s Vault is temporarily shutting down the build log.  Come on, we heard the collective gasps of dismay :o.  Fear not.  We are not going anywhere.  We have just decided, at this time, that we are too backed up to be taking any more business until we fulfill all of our current obligations.  

As many of you may know, Randomsabers was one of our early inspirations and, like many in the community; we were saddened that their success eventually caused their demise :'(.  Well, we swore to learn from our predecessors and not duplicate their mistake.   Recently, we discovered we have over a year waiting list.  That is an unworkable situation for us.  First of all, it is too stressful for us and, second of all, it is just too long for a customer to wait.  A six month backlog is workable, anything longer is not good for anyone so we will not be taking any orders until we get back to that level or below.  

This has also brought to light the fact that being as backed up as we are has interfered with our ability to experiment and try new things :-\.  We have some awesome stuff coming up, both in our build log, but also in our front line product and some planned exclusive runs ;D.  We want to have time available to be able to devote to those things as well as to the builds we have in our log right now.

We would also like to remind everyone that while we do our best to give an ETA, it is just that, an “estimated time of arrival”.  It is not a “set in stone” date and we are, unfortunately, unable to provide “set in stone dates” due to the nature of our business.  In addition, we are not a large business.  We do not, for the most part, sell pre-made product.  We make unique, one of a kind, custom pieces.  We.  Alan and Deanna.  The two of us.  So, if something happens to one of us, or we have DRL issues to deal with, production slows.  It can’t be helped, it is what it is.  
If you are on our build log, we ask that you be patient a bit longer.  We are focusing all of our energy to get all our customers taken care of as quickly as we can.  However, as you all know, we will never sacrifice quality for quantity, just please know we are working diligently to get everyone taken care of.

We hope everyone will take this as the positive situation it is.  We have become successful.  We have lots of business.  This is a good thing :D.  Thank you to everyone out there that has contributed to our success.  Thank you to our peers, our suppliers, and of course, our customers.  This is a wonderful community and we love being a part of it.  We have been blessed with a wonderful and patient bunch of customers.  We want to make certain we are doing right by them by not getting spread any thinner than we are.   So, really thanks so much to this awesome community for your support and watch for an update soon!
