    Nov 25, 2008, 11:54 PM - FS: HYPER-FIRM RUBBER KNEES 2ND RUN (now with ESB) #1

    OK guys
    The first run has been finished & the ROTJ knees have been shipped out
    (Here's the build thread
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/forum...ad.php?t=28007[/URL] )


    Just like the ROTJ Knees, the ESB knees are entirely my own work, sculpted from scratch using reference pics with the help of autocad .
    The knees are rubber with Stainless steel armeratures in them. They are made of very durable Hyper-Firm rubber.
    The darts are also rubber and molded from the real Michell sweeparm part.The other (stepped) darts are molded from machined masters created using the same reference pics & scaled using Autocad to ensure everything is as accurate as possible.

    I will be offering both styles of knees ;
    ESB/PRE-PRO and ROTJ
    They will come with armeratures & rubber darts.


    $130 shipped USPS in the US

    International buyers will obviously have different shipping rates, so contact me for quotes.
    A 50% deposit is required to secure your set.
    Once I have your deposit, I will begin making your knees
    Please allow me 3 weeks to complete your set.
    When your set is finished & ready to go, I will pm you & let you know
    I will not ship your knees until the full amount has been paid.
    PAYPAL ONLY AT THIS POINT
    Paypal to nmjca5@msn.com
    Please include what you want exactly & your screen name please in the PAYPAL info
    FIRST PAID, FIRST SHIPPED
    Here's the list and status

    I have quite a few people asking about the darts alone
    I hadn't planned on selling them seperately
    They were designed as an addition to the Knees
    I wanted accurate knees to have accurate darts
    there are many nice aluminum ones, but they don't seem to be right
    granted, i had to make the "big" ones shallow to be able to pull them, but the specs are dead on
    They are not easy to pull either
    Not worth selling seperately really.
    But, then again, the knees aren't selling that well right now either
    I'll blame the economy (hope it's not product)

    All purchases paid in full by that time will get this price.

    It wasn't limited, just lack of interest from everyone.
    I am no longer producing these though. Sorry bros
