Deprecated MINI-RUN: Foundry Cast Lineage/"Hybrid" Kenobi Stunt Casts (V2/V3/ANH STUNT FX)

After finishing my Lineage and my Original '76 run, I'd thought I would open this up to see if there were any interest in any of these since I have a little time open. Like my other runs, depending on who's committed, turnaround time is about a month, or a month and a half.

It wasn't until the latter half of my Lineage run that I figured

that the original stunt prop likely had a cast hilt "body" section and a stock aluminium emitter. That fact has kind of irked me a bit and I hope to rectify some of that by offering a "hybrid" kind of hilt for the V2/Stunt FX from RotJ/ANH, respectively.

To briefly surmise this project, this is what I think is a good in-between of my Lineage and Original '76 hilts. The ANH FX/V2's will be made with the exact measurements my RnD pulled from working with the original alloy from my Original '76 run, and will come with the stock alu emitter. The cast hilts will also have small amounts of the original material mixed into the standard a356 casting alu to make these to just give it that extra "oomph."

While this is primarily an interest run mainly for the V2/Stunt FX hilt, and I wasn't anticipating any interest in raw casts and V3's, should there be any interest, I'm offering those, too.

These hilts and their prices will reflect the scarcity of the original alloy and the dangers in using the amounts I have to melt down. 4145 not used as much anymore, is difficult to source (regulated by having a higher amount of silicon in them), and the gas it releases when melted is poisonous. To put it into perspective, the amount I need to melt releases enough silicon gas to harm small animals. I'm not suffering this for nothing.

This investment will be worth it if anyone signs on!

Personally, if you are lathing stock emitters with the nipple piece I’d be down to swap out my original poopapapapalps

I originally thought about it, dunno who of the original Lineage run would be interested in it though seeing how vastly different they are compared to the real things I can make now.
