Anodizing has not progressed since 2016.
I hope it will be completed this year.

Cool!  I'm glad everyone likes the update.  Believe me, I am very anxious to get these babies finished!

Any more Updates?

As soon as I hear even a peep from the anodizing company, I will update everyone.  This run ran into a "perfect storm" of BS and although that is not an excuse, it is the reality of it.  It went 4 years too long.  I am doing everything in my power to get it finished as soon as possible, which sounds like a platitude, but it is true.  This run dis not go through my current production supply line.  If it did, I would have far more control.  I also know that MH is doing everything he can.  As soon as I have your hilts in my hand, I will knock them out and all other commissions on my end will be paused until I finish every one of my installs.

I really hope this completes soon.

Since the first post for this build, I’ve had two kids. I just registered the eldest for kindergarten.

Not looking to cause anything.

I’d just like to have this finished so I can move on tbh.

New here. not new to forums. but please be gentle. ;)

Due to some life changes (see my for sale post for more information) I need to find someone to takeover my spot. Money is extremely tight at the moment and I just need the extra help right now. Hopefully someone who has really wanted to get in on this run can take my spot!!

So, with everything going on and most non-essential things shut down, I'm assuming that we're now waiting for them to come back up, and then waiting for them to clear whatever backlog builds up, which is going to make it harder/longer to get to our problematic run.

Is there a point where we consider just white-flagging on the anodizing and painting it instead?

Same here,

Perhaps giving people the option of shipping the Empty hilt would be a good idea.

I for one would like that too as there is still the $600 fees for installation, that's the reason why I posted my spot up plus this is not going to be offered with a polish finish. And probably will cost extra for Neopixel.

Agreed. Barring substantial proof to the contrary I think we've reached the point where we accept that the run can't be delivered as promised and work out what can be reasonably done to deliver what there is to be delivered.

I'm not even mad, even if all this run produces is the un-anodized empties there's at least a path to getting something I'm willing to accept.

It's simply past time to accept the realities and move on.

I also agree... I would like either my hilt or to be out of this run.

Plus I've decided that I won't use anything but proffie from here on out so not only will I have to pay for a CFX install but will have to convert to proffie afterwards.

Nothing against CFX or any other board in particular but I've used EVERY board imaginable and proffie is just where I'm at from here on out

Hey guys, I will point MH in this direction.  He will be able to provide the most clarity.  I have already posted every piece of info that I currently have.  I do want to reiterate that these will not be affected by my own personal build log (they will jump to the front of the line as soon as I have them in hand for those who still want them built).

Guys, We are at the mercy of the anodizer.  We finally found someone to do it for us but he has a large back log and has not gotten to them.

I will discuss with LDM and maybe I can get some of them back without anodizing.  I want this to be over more than you guys but there is only so much I can do.

This whole thing has been a nightmare for me and all of you for sure.

We will update the thread with whatever we figure out.

Just my two cents but I'm willing to stick it out. I'm sad it's taken as long as it has but I'd rather have a complete saber (with neopixel? :D ).

Any update on the anodising? Or any update at all ? Been quiet for months also any word on sending out the hilts as they are? I’d take mine and get it finished elsewhere

I will shoot him an email or call him this week and see if I can get an update for everyone.  I know he is still backed up.  He is a one man business but his gloss anodizing looks amazing and deep black (not the purplish color I have seen before) so I know it will be worth it.

Again getting a hilt back from the anodizing company to send to you to get finished is just not an option unfortunately.

I have one that I sent out for a sample of ones work (but didnt go with them because it fell through).  I will try to put it together in the next couple of weeks so everyone can at least see how they will look finished.

I appreciate everyone's patience because I know this has gone one way too long but we are nearing the end.  Once we get theses back I know we will be able to knock them out for everyone.

Well, we're you able to find out anything?

Fortunately for me things have improved financially for the good
