    One thing I saw in @scottjuaís blaster stencil video was that he stuck the tape to his shirt or pants first before sticking it to the stencil. Picking up a little lint or fuzz helps the stencil transfer easier onto the surface of the saber, or blaster in Scottís case.
    Iíve been so busy, I havenít had time to watch Scottís new video, wish I knew that trick!

    Iím going to apply these new tricks into my next build

    I tell ya we cut the time by more then half, alittle over 2 hours last night, Saturday it took me 5.. pretty much 5 because I did my emitter twice

    FYI, you can apply 8,9,10, and 11 with the emitter off. It'll make it easier to handle and to get 8 in that groove.

    I donít recall if itís on film, but we talked about taking it off. I kinda like having it on the saber when I do it.

    If not, I would use a threaded rod to hold the emitter

    Kinda like a magic wand lol

    Hey guys, i havent been on here much because i have been SWAMPED with work. i was actually planning on taking saturday off, but got screwed over now twice but other contractors who should have been there today... the painters sprayer died on him, and the sheet rocker never came back from lunch. so i am stuck working tomorrow... if they show up. I managed to get home at normal time today and through on 2 coast of paint

    i like using poles or rods, something that i can lock the part on and spin around, i used to do this with flat tip alligator clamps on BBQ skewers on my old model parts when i was younger... so its always stuck with me


    using the bolts to keep my threads clean.. dont want to clean them again..



    2 coats down..

    need some advice guys... trying to dent and chip my nipple bung... this has got to be hardened steel... i attempted to mill it a few weeks ago.. and it sure felt a lot stronger then normal steel. i could be wrong and just use to working with soft metals..

    but i used my center punch to make a little dimple in it.. no luck... broke out my harden punch... this things mean business... nothing... I even sharpened a huge spike nail, when I hit it, it bent the tip of the spike nail like play doh...

    i am debating on going to try and find some 5/16 round at the steel yard... im having no luck with the bung...

    on a positive note, i did flatten it down on my bench sander and i like the grain in it. looks like saw grain

    Awesome thread halliwax. I’m contemplating airbrushing these stencils at a low psi in hopes of capturing more surface detail and gaining more control of the paint. If anybody else here airbrushed, can someone recommend some good paints for this hilt?

    I am in need of a air brush setup... punishes Props has a great video on his YouTube page.

    Adam savage also has high dollar brushes but says he uses his cheap 100 dollar single action brush the most

    I use to take air brush lessons when I was a kid... boy thatís a long time ago now..

    If I were to air brush this, it would all be in lacquer

    Judging by the pop culture video I swear thatís a lacquer paint. But who knows, probably just cheap 70s rattle can crap lol

    interesting... I’ve been using neo iwata with impressive results. It’s beern great on chassis work and small bits that need even and detailed coverage.
