Saberhead Custom Sabers and Conversions
« on: June 01, 2012, 07:00:00 PM »
Saberhead Custom Sabers and Conversions

Adept at custom installs of virtually any available hilt, crammer of crystal chambers into difficult builds.  Tackling the "unconvertable" in free-time for 4+ years.  Now offering machining services and custom saber designs and builds.

Every saber is different, as is every install.  Each job I take on is a custom install for that saber so the price for the conversion fluctuates depending on:

Saber make
Electronics wanted
What is provided vs what Saberhead Custom Sabers and Conversions provides

Please understand when you request a quote based off of a design it takes 2-3 hours for me to figure out costs, and come up with a price. I request all inquires be relatively serious. I understand if you are “pricing” Saber-smiths, but also keep in mind with some sabers, large amounts of time are put into figuring out if I can DO what you are wanting and building your custom quote.

What Saberhead Custom Sabers and Conversions Requires (Saberhead CSC)

Got a saber you'd like an install quote on?  I need pics of the saber assembled and if possible dissassembled if it's not a more mainstream saber, as well as a listing of what you want electronically inside and what you will be providing sent to me via PM here.

Specializing

Saberhead CSC specializes in Larbel Obi TPM saber installs, unique crystal chambers frequently adorned with fiber optics, IGNITER soundboard installs, and Korbanth/Parks hilts.  Examples of prior builds can be found here (just a few):

Shipping and Handling: This includes ordered parts, and to your home (if needed) (Insurance will be added to every item shipped unless otherwise specified).

Miscellaneous costs: This includes screws, chassis materials, etc. Basically any little parts I need to make your saber. Not included in 30% Labor fee.

Rush Order: $10 per saber in front of you.  Use if needed by certain date, i.e. Birthday, Halloween Costume, gift, etc. OR… Your saber has 7 other builds ahead of it. You need it now! So $10.00 a saber equals a $70.00 fee.

Late Change: Let’s say you want to change your design in mid construction. No problem! However, you will still have to pay for parts I have already ordered.

* Saberhead CSC Reserves the right to require more than a 50% deposit before a build is begun, as well as to require less than 50%.

You will need access to some good machines.  I had to have a machine shop do the neck milling for me because my lathe was too small.

Updated OP, also a minor announcement

At some point last weekend I ruptured a disk in my lower back.  Trying to "man" my way through the week proved unsuccessful and went to the ER yesterday.  Am on pain meds/shots and have some physical therapy to do.  As a result, I didn't get much done on anything for anybody this week, and the first part of this upcoming week is looking about the same.

Should be back up and running within a few more days, and my apologies for those of you whose sabers are almost done and I just can't sit long enough to finish it at the moment, but rest assured, everything is in order for completion and I'll be back at it shortly.

Thanks!
