    Thanks guys. I've quite excited and so is she. Keep your eyes on the junkyard in the next few weeks. I'll be hawking a number of one of a kind items from my collection to raise funds for the wedding. (Like a real parts OWK type unique)

    But anyways. Lets get back on track.

    Here's the final comparison design image

    Does this have the updated lip above the clamp? It still looks like the bevel on your model comprises most of the height, and to me that looks like most of it's height should actually just be a continuation of the clamp section (like they made it a little taller than a clamp) and the actual bevel is very small.

    A quick question: Will the mystery chunk hole be pre drilled like the rest of them?
    Yes, and the kit will include a custom made mystery chunk featuring a diamond texture on the top (the presence of which has been attested by multiple people who have held the original).

    The run post didn't mention a cone knob, but I see it on the prototype. Are you providing that piece, or do we need to source it like the clamp?

    Thanks again for offering these, Dan. The design revisions look great. And congrats on your engagement!

    Can someone tell me which finish on Roman's clamp replica is the most accurate to a vintage clamp? Is it the "bright satin" or the "matte"? My guess is matte but I just wanna be sure.

    Hey @Jedi Reali ! You just gave me deja-vu! I just answered this for brthegreat117 in his thread asking this same question...

    "I believe the answer is Roman's Summer 2016 Limited Edition Clamp Run where the G and the X landed in the Original Clamp's alignment.

    Since I'm pretty sure those are all gone, I'd go with one of the current Bright Satins!

    I know he's mentioned that that L.E. Clamp Run machine shop has made other parts for him since, I just don't have the particulars stored in my memory as to what parts those were/are."

    I'll add that you might get lucky if you pick up a Roman's Obi-Wan Mk1 Machined FX, as mine came with that L.E. Run Clamp back in 2016. Of course I don't know if Roman compiles all the parts for the hilt kits and has them ready to go, or if he grabs this part and that part and all the other parts necessary to make a kit from separate part bins once the order for a particular kit comes in.

    Anywho, the finish is a wee little more polished/ more highly chromed than on my ORIGINAL GRAFLEXes but I like it just fine. If there was a way to Scotch Brite it ever so lightly in perfectly parallel strokes, you could make it look very much like an ORIGINAL CLAMP I think.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how all you guys and gals finish these off once you get them!

    I think I'll go on the prowl for a vintage clamp for this one. Or maybe I'll get a Roman's clamp for my Vintage TFA build since I have Roy's clamp cover on the way and toss the vintage on to the V2.....

    Posted in the other project run thread but Im so down for 1! Just nabbed one of roman's Balance V4s so I'm basically starting a thin neck collection haha.

    Congrats on the engagement! I'm 3 years into marriage and it has been full of challenges, joy, struggle, and bliss... but the best part is having a partner who loves, respects, and shares the journey. Life with a true companion is so much less lonely!... just remember that you're in it for each other. Love your spouse with an open and merciful heart and even the bad times will slide right on by!

    Lightsaber!!!!
    Quick question, on the 2nd choke right above the grenade section it seems like there might be a very small lip which to my eye has been excluded on the model. Is this intentional? I ask as I don't know if this was addressed... or maybe it's just a scratch or something.
    I work in a high end metal/blacksmith shop where the guys call me laser eyes so I hone in on this stuff::
    Literally everything else is awesome and right on par; and I have no doubts this will come out great as long as the machine shop is capable of matching their source material!

    Hey guys! With Dan's (Anakin Starkiller) kind permission, I have opened a limited run for a plaque and stand combo to accompany this saber and any previous versions of his V2. The run can be found here: https://www.therpf.com/showthread.ph...85#post4390485.

    Thank you so much to all of you and to Dan for allowing me to create these for this run!

    he posted a picture in the sign-up thread, and I think he is seeing a nick in the paint right above the grenade body. Not another ridge, i'm 99% sure.

    I'll get that going soon. I still need final dimensions from Dan to ensure they fit. I'll be working on them this friday.
