    Expression Of Interest: Stefan Service

    Post  JeremyArifin on Mon Sep 17, 2012 1:16 pm

    Hello OzNerf!
    I am planning to make around 100 - 200 stefans in a month or two.

    I just wanted to get peoples opinion on my stefans and how much they should be worth.
    - I will be able to use any weights, even custom weights (a specified amount of grams to weight the stefan)!
    Here are a few examples of my stefans:
    All of them are very domed, which is what I think everyone will like about my stefans.



    Do you like them? Please post your opinion on them.

    Thanks, Jezza.

    This is where I learnt to get round domes...
    http://www.nerfrevolution.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=4957
    It takes some practise, but it's great!
    Or...
    You can just make a dome, then,
    tip it up side down until you get a nice dome shape,
    then quickly put it in some water, then after 7 - 10 seconds or so, you'll have a nice dome!
    Tip: cold water is better.
    I'll put up a tutorial in a few weeks or so.
    Thanks, Jezza.

    These are probably the best 'stefan' service so far I've seen on the site if you were to sell these darts. If you're going to do it Jeremy, you seem to be doing them right>

    I wouldn't buy them myself, just because I use VelocityTag / Stinger darts. However, from the looks of these darts, I would recommend it for those attending BYO wars.

    Hell everyone,
    Looks like everyone will like them! Thanks!
    I just ordered a whole lot of black foam. So I'll be able to sell around 350 stefans.
    The stefans will be ready for order in the summer holidays or early next year. But if I'm lucky, I may be able to release them earlier...

    Thanks, Jezza.

    I'm in the same boat as Littlebro - not a big fan of hot-glue domes.... But, seriously, they're impressive. If you can continue to create uniform tips like that, and glue them to inf0rm3r's blue foam, I'm sure you'd be on to a winner!! Well done.

    Cheers,

    That foam is Informer's, it was his old red foam. I've ordered some of his older black foam too.
    Unfortunately I'm only ordering 15 meters because that's all I could get. Therefore, this will be the last and only batch I can make. Unless someone provides me with foam (which I will pay for of course)
    Thanks for your feedback,

    Inf0rm3r has all new foam in stock. Blue tube foam, blue rod foam, and glo-foam (which I think is only tube??)

    Hello everybody!

    Good news! I will be able to start making stefans in a month or so!

    I first need to order a whole heap of foam and weights.
    Unfortunately, I can only use 13mm Foam (from Clark Rubber)
    I will be able to use inform3r's foam.

    I am looking for people who can provide me with some more foam.

    The first 100 or so will be my best ones...
    But for the rest, they will still be GREAT! but just a little less 'domey'...but not flat, they will still have a 'dome'.
    You may ask, 'why is this'? This is because I will most likely want to make more stefans, in less time.

    Please do not start placing orders now.

    I will be sending out free samples to some users when I start production.

    More details coming soon!

    where were you going to buy the weights from?

    as I am having trouble getting my hands on bulk packs of 200 00 spilt shot sinker, I used to buy them from Kmart but kmart has stop selling bulk pack, I have tryed Big w, target, I have even tryed place like BCF and Anaconda.

    Also if you want I can help you get inform3r's foam as I buy stuff off from time to time.

    Hello Cameron.

    I'm going to use washers and fishing weights. I might also use these awesome plastic coated 'plates' that have different emotions on them (they're 12mm in diameter).
    I have a whole bunch of 200 or so 00 split shot sinkers.

    That would be great if you could get some foam for me (remember, I can only pay by cash in mail).
    Tell me when you are ready to get the foam and I will place my 'order' too.

    I will be starting production in 2 or so months.

    Once I start production, I may give you some samples. Would you like some?

    If you don't mind me suggesting, If I was you I would only used one of the weight as you will find if you used both the dart will not fly as far as the more weight in the dart will mean the the blaster you are using them will have to put out more air presser to get the dart to fly longer.

    Moss of the people that come to nerf war in Melbourne that make there own dart realy only used 00 split shot sinkers as the easer to cover in hot glue than washers.

    Now on to the foam, I will Pm you with next day or two to talk about that more.

    What I meant about the weights was that people could choose their weight.

    Whether they would like me to use washers on their stefans, or sinkers.

    Each of the weights have their own advantages.
    Washers have the weight further to the front and is 'spread out' over the front of the dart, increasing accuracy. But they are harder to make.
    Using sinkers are easier and faster to make, but you need a hole perfectly centre to put the sinker into. If you do not have a centred hole, it will affect the accuracy.

    Hello everyone!

    Production will start in a month!

    Pricing info:
    100 stefans:
    1.5" : $20
    2.0" : $22
    2.5" : $25


    And guess what!?
    You can 'pay' with inform3r foam, tips, or felt pads (that can be used for slug making)!
    Of course it is has to be worth the same value or more for the stefans and their price.

    People who can help provide me with foam will always be welcome!

    'Foam providers' will get special treatment (free stefans, 'limited edition' stefans etc).

    There will be limited edition stefans from time to time.
    They will be exclusive to foam providers and other 'helpful' people.
    Limited edition stefans are stefans with a countries flag, emoticon or picture 10mm metal plate covered in plastic and clear hotglue...
    More info and pictures soon...

    Hello everyone.

    Eclipse will soon become a 'foam provider'.

    He has ordered 500 stefans (I put his order in because he was providing me with foam), and is 'paying' with 150 meters of foam.
    He will be receiving the following when the foam arrives:
    - 50 free stefans
    - 10 limited edition stefans.

    The foam will help me in producing more stefans!

    Hello everyone!
    I am also looking for felt pads...a whole lot of them...
    you will also be classified as a 'foam provider' if you can provide me with felt pads (for slugs).

    You can also 'pay' with them!

    @Jeremy

    The only place I found at has felt pads that fit great on inf0rm3r's foam are from Clark Rubber at 20c each per felt pad last time I was at Clark Rubber but that was about a year I think.

    From what I have been reading in the last couple of post and I right to say that you don't need or want my foam any more?

    Hello KingCam,
    I would still like your foam, the more the merrier.

    I've already replied to your email yesterday.

    Quick update for people receiving sample packs,
    Your sample packs will sent out in two weeks or so.

    For everyone else...
    I am currently looking for coloured hot glue! I want as much as I can possibly get...
    I know that they are available at 'Lind Craft' (or something lie that)...
    but there is no store near me
    If anyone is willing to trade some coloured hot glue for some stefans, please contact me.

    Hello everyone!
    I have some bad news.
    I have already ordered 100 meters of foam, but the person will not respond to my Emails...
    So all sample pack and my general stefan service will be delayed for a couple of weeks.

    I am very sorry, but there is nothing right now that I can do.

    Hello everyone.
    Unfortunately, my stefan service is still down due to problems with my foam providers.So unfortunately, stefan samples will also be postponed until my foam arrives.

    I can assure all of you that my stefan service will be up and running, but I do not know when.
