    I am no longer accepting client designs for custom builds,  unless they are similar to something I've done in the past, nor am I doing retrofits into sabers not built by me.  It has become too time consuming determining whether or not modern electronics will fit a design,  and everyone seems to have a deadline to meet.  As this is a hobby for me,  it is very difficult for me to meet specific deadlines.  I have other obligations such as my regular job and yes, even my family that takes precedence.  If you can't accept that,  then I'm probably not the "sabersmith" for your build.

    *Appropriate charger/adapters (if necessary) for set up chosen included.    NOTE: Use special caution when working with Li-ion cells, they are very sensitive to charging characteristics and may explode or burn if mishandled. Make sure the user has enough knowledge of Li-Ion rechargeable batteries in charging, discharging and assembly before use. Always charge in/on a fire-proof surface. Never leave charging batteries unattended. JGJSabersTM is not responsible for damage if there is any modification of the batteries/chargers in any form or shape (including pack making). JGJSabersTM is not responsible for any damage caused by misuse or mishandling of Li-Ion batteries and chargers. JGJSabersTM only recommends using Lithium Ion rechargeable batteries with a control circuit (protection PCB) to assure safe charge, discharge, etc, use of lithium ion batteries without a protection circuit is potentially hazardous.

    Specs:




    Late Change Fee structure:
    If a deposit has been paid and the parts are ordered, and changes by the client after that will involve a fee.
    Parts cost/parts return cost + 20.00-25.00


    Rush Order Fee:
    Rush Order $10.00 base+ $10.00 for each saber ahead of yours
    For example: Your saber has 7 other builds ahead of it. You need it NOW!  $80.00 fee will be imposed.
    I DO NOT DO deadlines...your saber will be finished when I finish it.  I do this as  a hobby,  not a business. End of story.


    Nuisance Fee Structure
    Once your build is started I will answer status requests once a week. 3 status requests in 1-2 weeks will get a $20.00 fee added, per request. This is a guideline, and subject to my judgment. If you want it rushed see above.

    If any of these fees is applied/billed to you, they must be paid before your saber is shipped.


    Payment policy

    Money orders and Cashiers Checks are my preferred methods of payment.

        * Money orders/Cashiers checks must clear the banking system and authenticity checks before your item is shipped

    Cost of parts is due up front,  with Assembly/Fabrication fee & shipping to you due upon completion.
     

    Payment Plan Policy
    Payment plans for completed builds only.
    25% initial deposit.
    1 month max time. (+/- 1 to 2 days is okay) Effective on the day deposit is received.

    Regarding International Shipping
    On the rare occasions I ship outside the United states,  I use Express Mail to ship all sabers and other products overseas.  If a person wants me to use UPS or Fed Ex to send a package,  that person is responsible for all shipping fees,  including import taxes and duties.  I also do not lie on customs forms,  so don't ask me to.  Be prepared to pay for it ahead of time.  Example:  a saber costs $265.00,  that is the value I will place on the package,  as that is the replacement cost.  That is what you will pay taxes on.  That also allows me to insure the package in case it's lost or damaged in shipment.

    New for 2012: JGJSabers Saber Sigs!  I'll make one for each new saber commissioned or sold for the members here at FX-sabers,  but remember,  the rules still apply: one sig image of 300 x 150 per member.  ;)

    Here's a few examples of how I'll do these using some prior sabers:


     

     

    I will also personalize them to include the owners screen name as well,  like this:
         

    EDIT:
    These have changed a bit from the originals posted above,  and will now look  a bit like this:

    Minor announcement....I recently resigned as a Plecter Labs Crystal Focus saber Core Affiliate.  Therefore,  I cannot accept commissions for Crystal Focus equipped saber unless the client supplies the board.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,  but I really did not do enough CF sabers to warrant being an affiliate.

    Also updated build log....those of you on the interested list should get ready to receive some pm's regarding your sabers.  ;)

    Temporarily closed to orders through FX-Sabers,  as I have a ton of work to catch up on for my local Rebel and 501st legion members.

    Although technically closed for customer orders,  I am still slowly building sabers for sale...here is a preview of CS-42:

    This one will likely be for sale when finished,  but I have no ETA on that.

    I am also prototyping a "BTS" or Brass Tubing Saber to go along with the ATS Series I have been building since last year:

    This one will likely have to have a weathered appearance,  since the chuck on my Dremel hit the rear grip piece a few times while cutting out the grip slots:

    I'm not sure how this one will turn out,  so I may be keeping it...if not,  it will be listed in the Trade Federation upon completion,  but again,  i have no ETA for that.

    I have 3 more ATS series and 1 BTS series underway:

    I'm not sure when they'll be done,  or in what order,  but when they will be for sale in the Trade Federation. All will have CS 4.0's and RGB Tri-Crees as well as in-hilt rehcarge and RICE ports.
