This will be my first LED saber and im having trouble finding the right stuff.
I went by Tims tutorial but im not finding the LED kit i need. i see the lens' and what not but does anyone have a list of everything i need electronic wise ill need for the LED blade. I dont need pommels or sink tubes or anything like that. Just the basics to make a LED blade. thanks

You looked? Really? Cause if you go to the store, and click LED supplies, all of this comes up.

i saw all that stuff yes. But i dont know what i need to get. there is more than one thing on each of those pages. There is also no need to be so harsh thank you.

ok tell me if this is right.




and this last one will have my tube and all my electronics right? all i have to do is specify color? i just dont wanna order the wrong stuff.

i dont see how that complete LED blade has all this stuff and its cheaper.

That's because it doesn't. All the complete blade kit has is the tube, diffuser, shouldered tip, and reflective bit inside the tip. The electronics are actually in the hilt, not in the blade for LED.

I wasn't meaning to be harsh(not really harsh anyways, just a little bit :wink: )

Oh, yeah. Don't forget a thumbscrew. And have Tim drill and tap a hole for the thumbsrew, unless you want to do it yourself.

ah so the complete blade kits is just duh the blade lol.

so i just need the LED kit which has all my electronics. ima go with the royal blue for my first.
A sink tube adapter and the LED holder (i think its called) and a complete blade kit right? and the rest is up to my customization with the parts i already have.
