Been subbed for a while waiting for news on these, your other projects on your channel are fantastic as well, Halliwax! Is the Anakin this far along and are these still going to be a set? Has the resin pommel idea for the Obi been scrapped after the shop screwed it up? ( I might still want one of the botched ones if that's possible) I'm still in no matter what day one XD Can Not Wait! Keep being awesome and uploading as many pics as you can while you do it!
The set has been split up. I'm doing the OWK sabers first on their own, then the Anakin. I need to recoup some funds first to invest in the next round of machining.

The resin chrome pommels for scrapped unfortunately because the castings we're done poorly and gas release after playing causing the chrome to bubble. The shop refused to fix the product and screwed me out of multiple thousands of dollars. After that I had to do metal pommels. (Based off of measurements taken from my original and very accurate).

I tried to find another shop that could reliability do the pommels in chrome resin, but every one looked like it was another money pit and I couldn't keep pouring good money after bad.

But in the end, the aluminum in pommels look great and are actually more accurate to the LFA saber MR examined and the PS saber. So, it's a win ... From a certain point of view ;)

I am so excited for this hilt, and can not wait until we get the Anakin to go along with it.

It came together wicked good man, and I’m so glad you didn’t scrap the whole project.

Job well done

So happy that all this work is going to be realized. It really is depressing to have to shelve a whole project over someone else’s mistake.

And don’t worry, my pocketbook will be sore for a little while, but I think the community is more than ready to help you recoup some funds!
