Today we had an IKM meeting, hosted by Mark (thanks so much!) It was him, myself, George, and new guy Quag_Myr_Rum. We talked about a lot of stuff, everything from costumes to silicon moldings. We have decided, though, on a new official project for IKM. We are going to make a Yoda saber It is based on both the Master Replica's and the actual movie saber. You will need to contact Mark on arrangements and information on what we need and how to do it, but we will start on it at the next IKM meeting on July 27 (moved because I'll be out of town the previous weekend) at Mark's again. Please contact Mark for more information. We need to know exactly how many of these sabers are going to be made in order to make sure we have enough materials. You will need to purchase two items on your own, or someone can purchase all of what we need and pay the person back. They are: 1 1/8" diameter, .049 wall thickness 6061 T6 Aluminum. 1 1/4" round bar stock You can order these items online, but Mark is going to look into finding a place here in town to get them. Please let us know if you are going to do this, and either are going to buy the parts on your own or wish to buy it in bulk. If you show up at the meeting without any notice to either Mark or I, you will not be able to participate. You can either post here or email one of us if you want to make a Yoda saber.
