    The Scorpion arrived today. Their name, not mine. It looks like the love child of obi wan and dooku's saber.

    That will be it for a while. With the recent costs of some home repairs I just can't see buying another one.

    I have parts to return to members:

    Bill Briendel - new blade
    Victor - LiON batteries
    Dan - Saber repair in progress (Sorry, I haven't picked up my soldering iron since prior to the SWN event. I'll work on this soon)

    I have been taking a break, spending time with family and attempting to get work done around the house that has been neglected for several months, but I'll be back in business soon enough.

    We've had some recent issues with craftmanship with Ultrasabers and I have done a few more repairs to their product than I would've liked. I would also recommend steering clear of Saberforge as again, poor workmanship and absolutely no customer service. That said, we aren't "officially" banning either place, but will simply say that it's buyer beware. I can make sabers and offer simple "stunt" sabers - meaning that there is no option for sound being offerred at this time and I am not color blending LED's to create purples, teals, yellows (although there are existing LED's out there that are pretty close...), etc. I do not charge for services and the only cost to you would be the cost of parts and getting them to me (in your case, since you live out of town, you would also have to pay the shipping cost for me to send it to you). A typical saber can cost anywhere in the range of $125 and up, depending on your design.

    This is an exclusive to NorthRidge members only.

    Actually its not those blades as they have yet to get back to me, and looking at there chat room the last conversation they had was like 2 years ago so those blades might not be available anytime soon.[face_frustrated]

    Talk to the DuffFather. He may do this thing you request and someday - and that day may not come - you may be called upon to do him a favor.
