Inside sources say Top Secret #9 is isolating midichlorians in the Hadron Collider and then using them as ingredients in the new Solos Hold granola bars, which will be exact replicas of the ones Luke ate on Degobah. Amiright?
Wasn't that just a chick-o stick?
Anyway, those summer diseases are killer... I love kids, God bless the little petri-dishes.
Good luck on all the projects!
And I knew that headset looked familiar, guess I didn't recognize it w/o the giant earmuffs.

That'll spell the end for Netflix...
I can attest that Han did in fact shoot first and no amount of middle aged political about facing can change it. Besides, they were like an arms reach apart, so either Han shot first or Greedo was totally incompetent.
I'm not sad about losing all the books, some were better than others. Disney should just do a silmarillion esque anthology for all us old folks who don't know where we are anymore.

I tend to agree, however it seems like a bad strategy for Disney to take 40 years of lore and trash it. I imagine that they did it to revive the franchise for younger generations. As far as Darth Maul and Fett; if Lucas was capable of writing a decent screen play those characters would have had some actual roles to play other than disposable henchmen, and we wouldn't have to cringe and quietly curse the prequels for ruining our childhoods. Its no wonder that most people think that ESB is the best film in the franchise, Lucas had the least to do with it.
Now, I'll give Fett the benefit of the doubt on the Sarlacc, but Maul coming back from a vivisection and the obligatory fall down some pit of doom, that's just silly.

You can get them on Amazon pretty cheap. Personally I think the Samsung offer the best bang for your buck, even if they're a little lower on the mAh. I've seen them out perform more expensive batteries with higher mAh.

Knurling is always a pain, I usually have more trouble with threading on a lathe.
BTW, you can get a nice nickel silver finish with aluminum black if you rub it on with a cloth and then buff it back. You have to rub fast and not allow the oxidation to build up. Use a little steel wool on the darker spots and then go over it lightly on a buffing wheel or with a cloth and some compound.
Its a nice looking saber, reminds me of a potato masher grenade
jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.
Sept 23, 2017 13:50:47 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.
Sept 23, 2017 16:23:33 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from
Sept 23, 2017 16:24:51 GMT -5
ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.
Sept 23, 2017 16:25:38 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several
Sept 23, 2017 16:29:06 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.
Sept 23, 2017 16:29:32 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.
Sept 23, 2017 16:30:26 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
