Kasucodes 2013 build thread


#1

I have a few things I’d like to share with you guys, but first I would like to reintroduce myself as I have been very busy and have not posted on the forums in quite some time. My real name is Patrick York, feel free to call me by my handle, Kasucode. After being introduced to the FGC back in 2008 it wasn’t until 2010 I decided to drop pad and build myself a stick.
Previous build thread

After building a couple for fun I have had many requests to build custom sticks. It wasn’t until early last year finishing the X-23 and later this stick

Video in action
(also Eternal Blazes, shown at CEO 2012) that I decided I love working with metal.

For months I worked on designs for a new stick in my off time but was never truly happy with anything not because of a lack of creativity but because I simply didn’t have all the tools I needed to produce the quality I wanted. It was then I decided I would take it to the next level. After many months of saving I’ve finally got together most of what I need to start building again.

I am happy to announce that I’m now a full time stick builder. Prepare yourself for badassery!

KCD short for KasucodeDesigns also “KO” knock out
My first line of sticks will be called the Knockout series.

I plan to have a few different models that will be completely different and offer something for everyone. All my sticks will primarily be offered as DIY cases for less overhead and faster build times. I will offer many customization options in a stick builder so you have more control over how your stick looks.
I’ll have more info on this in the coming month. For now I’m focused on building the first few prototypes.

I love build threads and I’m sure I’m not the only one. I just starting bringing my designs to life last night and I would love to continue showing the progress for some of the sticks I build so ill be using this thread as my ongoing log.

Looking forward to whatever baller shit you make Pat. I’ve been waiting for the day you decided to go full time stick builder.


#6

Welcome back, I really want to see what ever you going to build.


#7

Awesome, glad to see you back.


#8

I still want one of those sticks with the wrist fans! Seriously glad to see you deciding to build more sticks. Really looking forward to see what you come up with!


#9

This should be thoroughly interesting to keep up with.


#10

Much props. I want one…


#11

Looks great, I dont think anyone currently producing sticks is doing metal, so you’ve got a niche if you want it.
-sending a pm ^-^


#12

Thanks everyone.

Thanks, and that’s part of the reason I want to build some sticks with metal. A few people have dipped into it but no one has really taken advantage of it.

This stick is actually my first time TIG welding, or welding at all for that matter. it will only get better.

Heres a few update pictures.

Excellent, i’m sure you’ve already thought of this, but metal = powder coating and auto paint options, not to mention “natural” metal finishes like the diamond plate and stuff like that… clever window for the pcb…

hype meter building for sure


#14

It will be powder coated. I have many colors available.


#15

Some more progress.
