    Thank you, Don Se Wion! That will make it easier to clean up the ribbed section on the lathe.

    Thanks for the info! Do you know if the ribbed section can also be unscrewed from the lower part of the hilt? They seem to be made of different metals.

    Answering my own question (again). I finally got it off, but not at the place I expected to. I used two strap wrenches to get it off, but I had an unpleasant surprise. It turns out the matte finish...

    I don't know if you still need this info, but a Graflex replica clamp will not be any good to you in repairing a Master Replica Luke ANH Force FX. The MR hilt is much, much larger and fatter than a...

    Honing a Hasbro 2007 Luke ROTJ emitter

    I'm all but done converting a Hasbro 2007 Luke ROTJ, but I realized that the hole for the blade is much narrower than any other Force FX I've ever worked with. Being able to remove the emitter for...

    Oops! You're right. The black of the swing sensor against the black background made me miss it the first time I looked. Here it is.

    Now where on earth did that come from? :shock: A sound/light board built into the blade!? And yet the LEDs seem strangely spaced. It's not like any Force FX I've ever seen.

    I don't believe the board will be able to power a Tri-Rebel Star. It was designed for a much weaker RGB. But you might be able to use Plecter Labs' Power three Xtenders with resistors and power them...

    I don't recall, but probably a Maul Conversion Kit. It has the narrowest outside diameter of all the blade holders in Tim's inventory. (Or at least it did at the time.)

    Am I correct in thinking this never came to pass?...

    Am I correct in thinking this never came to pass? If not, I wonder why. Who hasn't looked at the PLI and thought, "I'd love to use this, but I don't know how it would work with the MHS boxes that...

    Most likely. As I said, that board is a terribly fragile thing. But you can replace the original board with just about anything and make yourself a bright, color-changing saber that also works as a...

    Yeah, I thought about that, too, when I saw the video, but I have to keep the cost on this one to minimum. Still love the sound, though, even without the pitch shifting.

    I decided to go with ResBlade. Purchased it from Saberfont.com. Such a cool and strange sound font. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Thanks for the recommendations, Skottsaber! I've put Phoenix Pyre, Steel Sword, and ResBlade on my list of candidates, but the others seem to be no longer available. :(

    I found them earlier, and, yeah, they have a ton. Which I why I'm asking for recommendations. ;)
  17. Recommendations for non-Star Wars, non-silly sound fonts?

    Apologies for cross-posting (I also posted this to fx-sabers), but I'm in a hurry to get feedback.

    Honestly? My idea would be to throw the board away and move on to a more meaningful project. This was fun to toy around with (pun intended), but it's more trouble than it's worth, and there's nothing...

    Ari-Jaq, Don Se Wion, that is precisely the kind of information I was looking for! Thank you so much. Obviously, I need to work on my Search-Fu. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again!

    No problem, I hope we can move on. And I just realized earlier that I failed to thank either you or Ari-Jaq for trying to help. So, a belated thanks to you both.

    DarkarNights, I think you meant to respond to someone else's post, because I didn't mention anything like that, and I never edited my original post (as you can see). :D

    Ari-Jaq, I think you meant "wire the string in series," not "wire the string in parallel," didn't you? That's the only way it would make sense to solder all the leads together and use a single Power...
