Got to work on the boxes over the weekend.



Spent pretty much all of 5 days working on them.  It takes 6 steps to make each box.  Cut raw stock, machine top profile, machine bottom flat and drill holes, side hole, bottom radius, and sand machining marks.  Star to finish, each box takes about 26 minutes.  I need to toss them in the tumbler but I want to limit them to 20-25 per batch so I don't overload my tumbler.  Hopefully I can get the first batch in next week and get them finished in a week or two.

I also did the first half of the blade holders.  No picture of these as there is not much to show but 70 cylinders.

Are there smiths installing and reselling?

I can't speak for all the smiths, but there may be one or two who will install and resell.  I won't name names until they are ready to offer their wares for sale.

As far as installs for those who are already on the list, I am not offering installs on these.  I have asked several of the people I trust to chime in and offer their services if they wish.  I know Vader's Vault has already expressed interest, as has Anakin Skywalker.  The rest are probably waiting until they have a few more installs of the new Plecter boards under their belts to feel comfortable in offering a pricing structure.  I did not reach out to the NEC products installers, but they are also free to offer installs in these if they wish.  Of course, it goes without saying that any Mining Colony or Guild Member is more than welcome to offer installs of these sabers.  You are not bound by any rule to have to have an install done by one of my 'recommended' installers.  You are free to chose, or even do the install yourself if you want.

There will be plenty of time to sort all this out.  I have been working every weekend for the past two months and only have 2 and a half parts completed (but in my defense, they were two of the most time consuming parts fo the saber).  I amnot going to hazard a guess at a completion date right now - but I will make sure anyone who wants to do installs gets their information posted in time for you to make a decision before the sabers ship.
