    roygilsing Do you recommend a certain way to angle your plastic grips for the ANH sabers?

    I doubt Roy will answer soon ... he's fast asleep now and will be pre-occupied with his core business being a Production Designer for the next couple of weeks ... I do believe member Clutch had a tutorial involving a mitre-saw ... how to cut T-track ... but I can't seem to find it ... sorry :)

    I believe the clutch tutorial was on the bubble strip (you provided it to me in another thread on another forum) but Roy himself already provided the answer on the T track

    Thanks guys. I have seen GINOs post before, but was looking for any experiences with Roy's tracks specifically in case of material differences. But it sounds like they should be similar enough to use the aforementioned methods.
    intwenothor I was looking for options for cutting the ANH angle specifically. I have read Roy's awesome ESB tutorial before, but he doesn't go into the options when cutting the angle on his tracks.

    I don't have a good miter box, so it sounds like I may invest in one... :)

    Hi Roy, love your work, and for anyone wondering about just how accurate you can reverse engineer from a photo, well Roy has a talent. When discussing the possible origin of the ANH D ring, his measurments from the toe shot photo, are almost exact to a D ring found on a Graflex camera case, which may have been the source.

    As for you ESB circuit board, I am wondering if the contacts need to be more of a gold colour than copper, from the photos of the promo shot they look more gold, but that can be photography as well.

    Look forward to your other products.
