Så kom der desværre lidt triste nyheder fra det kolde Nord (Finland) hvor min saber skulle laves.
I know you weren't in a hurry, but just a small heads-up!
I've had A LOT of trouble getting my new lathe operational, it works all right but the electricity system in my household is too sensitive for an old 3-phase motor the lathe uses... I've been going through several tune-ups and mods, without success... Thus, I'm now selling the damn thing and try to source a replacement lathe later.
I still have my old small lathe and I can do a lot of things with it. But I'd prefer to have a bit larger capacity for the Kanan hilt, so I'll probably start this project not until I have a bigger lathe again. Hoping that this will happen in early Jan, if not sooner!
Just for you to know that I haven't forgotten this yet!
