    Oh well for me, I'm using some solid-brass MHS parts I had custom-made. They'll get a nice patina on their own, maybe a little vinegar dabbed on to expedite the process, and along with that I'll be...

    Lol I'm usually pretty meticulous about cleaning my cookware but maybe I have something. But on the other hand, a pan is a tad removed from how it looks on a lightsaber!

    Do you have any pics/links to pics of using Tabasco or olive oil? Like I said in my reply, a little vinegar will give my solid-brass parts a nice patina but now I'm curious about this "Cajun Agin'"...

    Well it depends on the material you're using. In my case, my hilt uses several pieces made of solid brass and after a few days of handling them with my bare hands, my handgrip is already developing a...

    That's what I was thinking, yes. Just remove blaster blocks entirely and only use stabs, since I favor lightsaber-on-lightsaber combat forms. Would be difficult to trigger the aux effects at times,...

    Yeah, I figured as much. So the only way to use them and use a NeoPixel blade would be to wait until a Crystal Focus board comes out that's compatible with the blade tech and then reinstall the...

    Extra Sound Effects in a Prizm v5?

    Hi everyone,

    So I want to use a Luke RotJ sound font for my build and the one I'm looking at has extra sound effects like spins, stabs, and hilt-angle ignition sound variation. But the font is...

    Custom Brass MHS Hilt pieces

    I figured I'd post these here after I got them in the mail yesterday (and after Facebook killed my post for some reason). Custom order solid brass MHSv1 pommel, ribbed/grooved + choke combo, and...

    I just read a little article about the Disneyland shop and yeah, based on the pictures I'd say that their hilts are pretty wide in diameter and the blades are chunky for only being 31" long. It looks...

    That's true, aye. But on the other hand, there surely are ways to mask the threads that will withstand the plating process. Silicone plugs of some kind for female and possibly a cap of some type for...

    Well perhaps by electroplating or another means, but based on the fact that I've seen it done and have had professional metal finishers tell me it's possible, then there's a way to put brass over...

    Hi Silver. I've already placed the order for the aluminium parts from the shop, and having them done from solid brass, while appealing, would have been monstrously expensive to accomplish, and a...
  16. Brass Plating a Lightsaber -- Help needed!

    Hi everyone,

    Yet another question from me here. I really really really want to give my MHS-parts hilt a brass finish. I don't mean paint or goldish anodizing or powdercoating that doesn't really...

    Hi Braxus, that does help, thanks. Especially since I want a deep thrumming bassy Vader-style idle hum despite this being a lightsider's weapon.

    May the Force of others be with you.
  18. Do I need to replace my speaker mount with a chassis?

    Hi folks,

    For my build I'm planning on keeping it simple internally using the MHSv1 Speaker Mount Style 6. Now, I'm using the MPS Pommel style 3 v3 with this saber, and I fear that'll mean my...

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the pics. I've actually decided to all but abandon powdercoating except for using the copper vein on my lower grip section (doing a Mara Jade-style grooved 4" section), mostly...

    Lightsaber anodizing

    Hi folks
    I've had a thought about having my hilt components anodized instead of powder-coated, so I could weather and overpaint them easier without changing the surface feel of the metal too much....

    The box in the picture is only a representation of the one I want, the Box Style 28 kit. Unless I'm mistaken, I can use one or two switches mounted in it to operate the electronics. If I am mistaken,...
