    Jul 28, 2004, 10:15 PM - Girth Belt Interest Thread - Big Run Shipped 1/11/05 #1

    12/05/04
    Ok, just an update to this thread.
    I am still offering these and will continue to do so as long as we have a consistant interest.

    NOTE:
    These are 14 strand English Mohair Girths exactly like the ones used in the films. The coloration is correct due to a dying process I have been using. I also make and attach the screen acurate nylon straps to the one side of the buckles as seen in the Reference CD photos of the AOSW and MOM pictures.
    I have had a lot of positive feedback from the customers that have purchased the girths from me and hope the interest continues.
    Thank You,

    Thanks Marrow!. I will probably finish up on the first 3 tonight and they will be ready to ship by Saturday. I attached the nylon straps to the first one last night as I was doing the first color of the dye. They look great. I hope you like it.

    I have had a few questions from people wondering if the color would work for ESB as well as ROTJ.
    This picture told me that it was perfect!

    I will be working on the 2nd run of these this weekend. The first ones I sent out should be making their way to their respective houses as we speak. I can't wait to get the feedback on how they look in person.

    I have been receiving a few questions about the straps. I will post what the belt looks like with the straps attached.

    I just wanted to give an update to those that have put their orders in. The first batch came out absolutely perfect with no problems what so ever. The second run did not take the dye at all and I dyed the girths twice. I am working diligently to resolve this issue. Come hell or high water, I will get these out to all of you as soon as possible. Thank you all for being so patient. The test one is currently soaking in acetone to strip off whatever it is treated with.

    Are there any issues with the dye 'bleeding' during extended wear? In other words, is the dye locked in so that it won't leave a stain on the jumpsuit?

    They range from 36 in to 58 I think. I know the smallest I can get is a 36 though.

    The first batch of 4 that I did will never bleed. Now, the 4 that I am currently working on appear to be treated and did not take the first 2 dye baths. I took one and soaked it in acetone for 24 hours, washed it and it is in a dye bath right now. I am praying that it takes the dye. If it does, then all is good. I will let you know how it turns out.

    Ok,
    Last night I finished up dying the first one that I soaked and it looks like it took that color pretty good. Now all I have to do is the other color to see if it takes and we will be back on track. I have 3 of them floating in acetone right now, waiting to be sent through the dye. I will probably dye them tomorrow morning.

    Really nice. I need to weather mine up to get the color to a dirtier red. It measures 4.5" tall

    Just a quick update,
    Those of you that are waiting on size 36, they are still on back order from the manufactorer. I will keep on their rear till I get them in. The good thing is that they have about 20 of them arriving and I have 11 on order. The bad thing is that they are done for the year as far as producing more of these girths. Now the size 36 is only a special order item so that is why they have minimal stock.
    I was able to do the first dye process on the 4 girths that were soaked in acetone and they took quite well. I will be dying them in the other color tonight and put the straps on and ship those out.
    Another good thing I also realized is that when I was at the store picking up the girths, the ones that were deep on the rack were the stiffer treated ones. All the newer stock was the soft untreated that really take the dye well. THe special order ones have been coming in untreated so I thing that the manufactorer might have treated them in the past but has since stopped. In the future, I will not buy the treated ones as they aer way too much hassle! LOL
    So, the light is ahead and keep your ears open cause the girths are rollin out very soon.

    Well, I tried and I tried to make these treated ones work. The acetone bath didn't really work. They took some dye but just enough to make them look quite faded. I am going to order 4 more directly from the company cause it appears that the newer stock is untreated.
    I really feel bad that this order has taken so long. As soon as I get the untreated girths, I will have these out in no time.
    Again. I cannot apologise enough and I have already put about 15 hours of work into trying to resolve the issue with the treated girths.

    Ok, I just got off the phone. I placed an order for all new belts. I will be getting them in a few days. I also received confirmation that the size 36 belts will be arriving at my house in a couple days. I have 11 of the 36 coming. I am just going to make a production line! LOL
