  2. My first lightsaber

    For the electronics, for now I've gutted an fx saber and replaced the 4.5clv aa cells with an 18650 and changed the original blue LED for a 3w CREELED in green. I will post pictures with updates but so far all ive got made

  3. My First LightSabers

    i have so far made 2 lightsabers. my personal one, a dark matter red blade with a black and red hilt. and a curved blade katana saber, yellow blade, with a black hilt and white paracord wrap. both have been amazing to do, especially the katana. i loved pushing the limits of the polycarbonate, PVC, and my skills in making lightsabers. this is only the beginning and im hoping to make even cooler sabers in the future.

  4. PVC Rahm Kota Pt. II

    So, I'm hoping I can get some help here, but since no one has seen my first blog post (or at least commented on it) I may have to post this into the Forums...

    Anyway I am including a link to the Mace Windu board I am using in this saber. It has a tactile switch spot on the board and I can't figure out how to wire this switch to a momentary switch.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

  5. Crystal Chamber Pt. III

    Ok, so I have an updated chamber that I'm going to put into my brother's Obi-Wan hilt that I posted in an earlier blog post. In part I, I showed off an incomplete version of what is below. This is the finished version, without the wiring, of course. I decided to put the original crystal back in it, and had to adjust it to get it to fit.

    I will work on the wiring probably next weekend, since I will be busy the rest of this week (it was nice having Pres. Day off of work). There ...
