    For sure - super excited about that run. Even though I'm watching the thread I still check the page once in a while just to make sure I didn't miss anything.

    I could definitely go for a Mace or a QGJ.

    I hope Dan decides to do Dooku’s saber some time.

    That'd be interesting. I don't know that anyone ever really tackled it other than MR.

    I've always loved the Mace saber though ;)

    Korbanth has done it. Turned out pretty nice.

    I know I'd be in for any prequel sabers Dan might do.

    Talked to my hardware guy today - I confirmed I can get 3/8" threaded rod in custom lengths. While I'm not entirely sure on the length it sounds like it would be in the $3-7 range per piece. Just wanted to throw that out there for when the time comes.

    Nope - I'm in the States, but just trying to help organize a mass shipping thing if that need arises for the foreign guys.

    Thanks for your help! What I still don't understand and I really hope you guys will not take that the wrong way, but I think it would be much easier and cheaper if the rods where included in the saber shipment as buying one separetely with additional shipping cost has to be automatically more expensive.
    Maybe I'm mistaken and it's possible to source some in europe or to use a metric one and rethread the parts that need to be.

    maybe an M10 rod will do as it's probably just very slightly different and might require a very light re-threading. If someone has experience with that, maybe they can tell :)

    I agree it will probably add more cost to the buyers having separare shipping, but that is how Dan is setting it up to work. What would probably be the most complex but cheapest route at thos point is to have someone on the European side of the Atlantic receive a large single shipment from someone in the US of many rods and then that person disperse them to individuals.

    Also, if one has the means to source the proper rods and threadpitch over there, he or she should go that route probably unless it is grossly out of a reason cost. Still, if anyone in the EU knows of a place that carries the propper rods and threadpitch, they could mention it here and help others to locate rods already in the EU.

    Yeah for sure - an EU source (maybe something in GB where they still use imperial measurements?) would be ideal. If not, willing to try and making something happen. But yes, it would likely be sending one mass batch over and the going from there. Or not. We'll see when we get there.

    I apologize, but Desante already has my spot as he asked first. I probably should have posted something saying it was gone.

    Sorry,

    Hello all,

    Not to late. I'll update the list tonight. I'm expecting the emitters in a couple weeks, but it's a new shop, so I'm not certain.

    Yes on the OWK and Qui-Gon. Though I'm not exactly sure what form I'm going to go on those. I want to do something unique.

    Personally, I think “accurate” is unique enough, but that’s just me. ;)

    Obi-Wan TPM is my grail saber; I have never owned any version of it other than the toys and it's my favorite prequel hilt by far! I am eagerly awaiting that one as well as the Qui-Gon!
