They come up occasionally, I've never seen one go for $250, that price was ridiculous
He was known for awesome work done reasonably
Yeah $250 is rediculous, no matter who made the host.

Every time I come here to look at the fan thread it makes me want to get a lathe, learn where to get the metal stock, and learn to do this myself... Not that I have ANY experience... but I'd love to try.

I kinda have access to a lathe, and my grandfather knows how to work one, but he lives 4 hours away. Maybe I'll ask him to teach me some time and I'll give it a shot.

Man I wish I owned one of Ehgemus's hosts. I joined after he had already left and from what I have seen, I missed out on the work of an amazing artist.

If anyone happens to have one of his hosts that they'd be willing to sell I'll gladly take a look at it! :) :D
I second this. We got into the hobby a little too late :(
But one of his hosts would be a great addition to any collection

If you are referring to my lightsaber, it already had a NUBM44 diode in it with a driver and lens, purchased as a complete laser. Much better than a Sci-Fi laser with this diode in it for more $$$.

I still have a couple hosts that I'm waiting to build. I just stich ed this leather grip onto it. Ive used a bunch of different things for grip materials from wood vaneer to carbon fiber but I thought this would look cool. I'm putting this screen in it once we get all the bugs worked out. Hopefully I'll have it done this week. I still have to drill the holes for the power up and down buttons.

Thanks. I was surprised at how well it turned out myself. I've never done anything with leather before.

What kind of wood did you use for the veneer? It looks exotic.

It's burled maple. I also have some madrona wood vaneer. It's a shame he's not building hosts anymore. They were really nice. But I understand. For the amount of work he put into them what he charged was really cheap.

So anyone here got a host they'd be willing to sell? I'm looking for around $100 :D
