MK III ROTS for Lord Bane
« on: October 24, 2010, 08:15:20 PM »
Lord Bane bought my first Luke V2 from Danny a while back and he loved it so much he contacted me to do an Obi ROTS for him based off of the MK III saber.  

Obviously special thanks goes to LDM for revolutionizing the build of the MK III sabers so others could follow.

Specs:
Parks MK III
CF V5 with power extender for FoC
LEDengin 10W B with 2 dice in parallel for main LED and 2 in series for FoC
2 x 18650 Li Ion batteries for long run time
push button activation card (back ignition, front aux)
Powder coated grenade and gear section with HD gloss black
copper plated upper neck piece
real gear cut down to make side greebly polished and clear powder coated to protect it from rusting since its steel
pommel was rechromed by the same company that did the copper coating

Now on with a couple of pics (thanks Madcow and JSS for some photoshoot suggestions).

I made a private video of the saber for the user but forgot to do a public one.  Long story but I got called out to a system failure at a large company just before I shot the vid.  Needless to say the rest of that day and the next were pretty much just work for me and I wanted to get it shipped so I didn't get a chance to do another one.  Maybe Lord Bane will do one for everyone.

MH, just curious what the words are engraved on the gold ring below the emitter or the lower gold part of the emitter? Beautiful saber.

I cant remember.  Its factor whatever it is (I think its the company name or something).  I didn't do any custom engraving if that's what you are asking.


Thanks everyone.  This was an older build but is a beautiful saber for sure.

OH I knew there was something I forgot to do.  LB sent me the saber back a few months ago to do some upgrades.

He wanted me to put the TCSS obi box on it and change to a TCSS pommel so it would look more like a MKIII.

I never posted the updated pics of it.  I just found them on the camera (someone was asking about it so it made me look).

What I did...
Machined the body down so the TCSS box would fit.
Machined the fins behind the box to look more ROTS accurate
Machined the back and the TCSS pommel to fit.



Here are the updated pics.  Click for larger images...



















I got in a habit of not taking pics because I just got too busy.  I found some other pics of sabers I need to update as well.

I wish I could find the pics of the one I did for enaswede.  It is basically the same but it has a satin finish (20% black) and instead of a brass screw it has an actual copper greebly that looks like the ROTS one.

I think I just did a video for him though.
