For a bump, I am going to talk about the NOS DESW I bought. Personally I get buck fever when I find a title that you dont see very often. Even though I spend most every penny I have on pf's, and I have for almost 14 years, I still make bad decisions. So from my crappy records it looks like I spend a grand on this pf. I am guessing I paid shipping also.
I would still buy it for a grand... if it was drilled and dimpled. Since it was not I had to but a fairly nice used pf to make a template from which cost me 250 plus shipping, then make the pf template which takes a day to make and a day to dimple and drill. then I decided to reglue all of the inserts since they were somewhat loose (some). This is just time. I didnt remove and reset them I applied epoxy from behind.
So my point is, in many cases a seller prices a undrilled pf the same price they sell for drilled. Most of the time they sell because people like me didnt ask.
reproductions are always drilled, but anytime you buy a nos pf, make sure to ask if it is drilled and dimpled. Happy turkey day. I call it turkey day because I dont have family except a sister, so I dont get together for a feast, but I am thankful most every day.
The DE star wars will be for sale when done.
I can drill and dimple about 250 titles if you need one done
