    Ok, This is for anyone who has access to a Lathe. I need Some Sabers built that are very reliable and that can be thrown without breaking into a million pieces. Send me a PM and please show me some stuff you have done and give me a rough estimate of how much you can make it for. One saber that I want for sure is an Obi-Wan Kenobi from TPM.

    Saber

    Thanks in Advance.

    I'm pretty sure it's illegal for someone to make you an Obi-Wan replica then sell it to you. I don't even know if they could give it to you.

    And unless someone is going to be very generous, you may be better off going for a Parks. I have found though that if you construct a hardware saber with enough care, it can pretty much stand up to anything.

    I read one post where someone in New Zealand is making replica props and selling them. I dont really like the sabers that parksabers make. Anyone else have the ability to make me some machined sabers?

    Take your drawing(s) to a local machine shop. I got two aluminum machined sabers (anodized) for $100 each. Note that that does NOT make them indestructable. I have a chunk missing in one of them where the other one hit it. But they are very cool!

    And hey, it wouldn't hurt to see if the machine shop would cut you a deal if you put them in the credits?!
