Hello World!

I recently bought and received my first ever $75 Mystery Box and I am super happy with what I got. There is just one thing that I wish it could have came with. A covertech wheel. The hilt is a Dominix V4 with AV switch in Arctic Blue. Love the look, but as I said. No wheel.

I noticed in the Order Details section that I can add notes to my order. I saw that that is usually used to pinpoint the placement of the covertech wheel on custom saber orders.

BUT

Could I have asked to have one added to my mystery saber? I wouldn't mind paying the extra fee and the hilt would still be random, but is that something Ultrasabers would honor?

If that is not a possibility, then what would be my best course of action to adding a covertech wheel or something similar (D-ring?) to allow me to attach my hilt to a belt? *Whatever doesn't include drilling into the hilt itself.*

Thanks!

They can't add a covertec wheel to a MB, if they opened it that would take the mystery out of it.

You of course can add a covertec wheel from US and do it yourself. I get you are scared to tap and drill an hole in your saber, but it is not as hard as you think. But I will say get an cheap piece of aluminum pipe to practice on before you try it on your saber.

Another thing I have seen is putting one in the blade retention screw hole. Will hang upside down on your belt without a blade in it.

You can also get a pommel and a D-Ring insert from TCSS (The Custom Saber). All you have to do is install.

Hi.  You can also just get a covertec and apply some strong glue to keep it in place.  Make sure that you prepare and clean both aluminum surfaces that need to make a close contact.  Sorry I can't suggest a specific glue... something that is a clear permanent super glue.  Let it dry well prior to use.

I know this works as I have a 2nd party US saber that came like that... and there was no way I could take the wheel off.

Have some sabers... quite a few... and I know how to wield them.

I guess I wasn't sure if the mystery boxes were prepackaged or not. If that is the case, why did it take a 5 days to process my order?

Either way, I've seen the route of using the blade retention screw hole, but it would get in the way. I have a place I want it on near the pommel and I guess I'll have to search around for tutorials on drilling the hole for it. Or the super glue route if there is a strong enough version that will keep it there permanently. XD

for drilling something round best if you use a drill press, probably any shop in your area can do it easily. if doing it yourself without a press then a center punch is necessary to keep your bit from skating. Not hard really. Also when tapping the hole use proper technique this is one turn forward then half a turn back.

Yea I'll definitely look around my area to see if any places could do it for me for a not so high price if I can't find a way to do it myself. Thank you!

Like I said I bought a cheap piece of aluminum pipe (actually from Amazon) to practice before I did it to my saber. With a punch it isn't hard at all. I also use the pipe to test paints, aluminum black, etc...
