More specifically, the plug and polyE line up end-to-end inside the polyC.

I am about to finish my first lightsaber with the EL-blade, very excitied. Question- the tiny screw that holds the mono plug to the blade. I am afraid it won't hold, will it? Those of you who fight with their blades, what do you do to secure the defuser part and blade to the hilt?

Unless you put it together in some funky non-standard way, it'll be just fine.

As for holding the entire blade assemly inside the hilt, I personally use a large thumb screw through the hilt and just put pressure on the outside of the blade. I'm sure there are plenty of people that may actually drill a hole into the polyC shell, for the thumbscrew to go into.

I have never had a problem with my design, though, and neither have my 7 customers. Just as long as the thumbscrew is throughly tightened (hand only).

I have never drilled a hole for the thumb screw to sit into either. Just the friction against the side holds the blade just fine.
