    Quick question. What do the internals look like as far as where you would install the heat sink?

    I’ve watched that a ton of times, I didn’t remember seeing into the emitter where the heat sink would go. Oh well, just curious while I prepare for the install.

    Are you located in the states? Did you have to sign for it?

    My mail woman knows I’m never home so she would drop it off at the job site I’ve been working at (2miles down the road from my house) if it needed a signature

    She retired a few months ago, and this new guy won’t help me out at all..

    The previous mail man before this mail woman, we had him for 30 years. He would sign my package for me and put it in my truck in my driveway... really miss that guy..

    You really put some engineering into it, I was looking at where the belt clip goes before I took it apart, sure enough you made it so it only attaches one way! Perfect!

    The finish! Perfect! The shine threw blade plug! Perfect!! The bird cage, perfect! This thing is crazy!!!

    Now it’s so beautiful I’m going to have to install electronics

    Thanks so much for all the hard work put into this! Really ecstatic with this thing!!

    For a limited time this week, and MAYBE next, I'm offering a discount in my shop of an additional 10% off anything I'm selling there. Even on top of already discounted/sale items. So if you've been waiting to pick one of these up, this could be your chance.

    www.phoenixprops.net to order and use the code PPCYBER10

    Has anyone who used AFX for finishing on this project received any communication from AFX yet? I've had nothing but good experiences with AFX in the past, but I don't think I've received any communication since these sabers were shipped.

    They haven't been super communicative to the public with status updates on this run, but rest assured I talk to them quite frequently and as of a few days age they will be requesting the final invoices very soon. Sabers are getting boxed up and prepped for shipping now.

    I ended up getting one of these off eBay. Complete and unassembled. Watched the assembly video. I love it. Extremely well made. Thanks for making them.

    Ahhh, shame you got it on ebay, but you probably saved a bit, how much did it run for?

    Artisan fx kills it every time. So glad I shelled out the extra.

    Stunning work Derek. More beautiful in person. I can’t wait to install this
