2015 Obi TPM/AOTC run -closed pending a few stragglers for now
« on: January 14, 2015, 08:57:30 AM »
I have taken the previous interest thread into account as well as some PMs and emails I have received and come to the conclusion that there is indeed enough interest to offer another run this year.

Additionally, I have been contacted by several possible run participants about wanting to make sure they can reserve a spot before the run thread is posted and guarantee themselves a spot.  I was initially considering an April/May announcement but people have informed my that 'tax time' is not the greatest time for them.  To these ends, I am trying to make things fair for all and think I may have a solution.  I will open a run thread now and only open half of the available spots up for sale.  I will re-open the deposit period later this year when I am closer to beginning the project to fill the remaining slots. 

I will not be starting work on these until the Skinnyflex run is completed (at this time, I am looking at a mid-summer start for these, but it all depends on how the remainder of the Skinnyflex run progresses).










For this run, I would be doing a piece for piece copy of the original run sabers and I have ZERO plans to make any new changes.  I will just dust off the old machining files and use them.  I will offer TPM and AOTC trim packages.  The AOTC will not be geared at absolute accuracy, but will be the same base saber as the TPM version with parts to replicate the AOTC look.

These would be empty only and I will not arrange any installs - that will be up to you.  Along with this, I would not supply any in-hilt electronics except the recharge port, and the two required switches.

I would supply the blade tip, blade threaded adapter and blade washer.  I will not supply the blade tubing, blade film, nor will I offer complete blades (this is to keep shipping costs down).

These would have the same black and red anodizing and overall machine finish on the balance as the original run had.

Price will be $550.00 per saber, plus 3.5% for paypal, plus shipping, with a $275.00 non-refundable deposit due to secure your spot on the list.  To make your deposit and secure your spot, please paypal your deposit of $275.00 to sales@orbitalmachining.com.  Please send as a payment for goods and make your payment in USD.  I have recently had issues with accepting international currency payments and I will refuse and refund any payment not made in US Dollars.  Once you have made your deposit, post that fact in this thread so I can see the order that payments have been made and add your name to the list.  I will do my best to keep the list updated but please check this thread and count the number of deposits made before you make your deposit to make sure the list is not full.  You do not need to make a decision on TPM or AOTC trim levels now - I will ask for that information prior to beginning the run.

Once the list is full, I will then ask that anyone else who is still interested post their interest.  When I open the remaining run spots, I will give those who expressed interest advanced notice of when the spots will be available.  They will have a short window to get on board before the spots are available to all.  I will do my best to accommodate everyone, but this run will still have a limited number of spots.

Argh. Internal struggle... I want one... I want Skinnyflex... I want other stuff... I feel like Anakin in the middle of Ep.III. :(

Screw it. I'm in. Paypal incoming shortly.

Payment sent! I'm in. I have questions but I'll PM you, Wat, after this deposit window closes, to save the extra hassle.
