    Thanks guys. I painted it yesterday, which kinda highlighted some flaws, but this is just the temporary shroud until I get the aluminum one built.

    So, Darth RL got me good since my last post. We moved, had 2 more kids, I got my Master's in Aerospace Engineering, and put my saber on hold. I finally got a bit of time and found some thin wall pvc...

    I'd go with 3/4" sch 40 PVC pipe covered in a foam noodle. I've made many a boffer sword and that's my favorite way to go. The PVC is cheap and light, and 3/4" is pretty rigid at saber blade lengths....

    You can get the tapped hole for the blade retention screw done by the store. Just look for the services section.

    I wonder if you could use a strain gage at the base of the blade to detect deflection. You'd have to figure out an algorithm that would compare the strain gage output to the accelerometer input,...

    Oh, I wasn't saying it couldn't be manufactured in tubes. I just meant that even if the op could afford to buy it, right now they only sell plates and optics, so it'd be a custom request
