    nice build! It almost looks to me like the shroud flares out on the sides. Is that the case, or just the way it is lit?

    Question about LED resistor wiring

    Hey everyone! I planned a saber here a while ago, but never built it. However I've been in a star wars mood lately, and think I might finally put a saber together, however I have a question about...

    On one of the reviews for the sink tube to Mhs converter, it says that the inner diameter of the converter is 1”, so I was thinking I would just make a 1” chassis so that I could remove it without...

    As I said earlier, I'm not going to be doing any dueling with this saber, so I'm not too worried about a lot of force being put on the grips, but if the Mhs parts are only 1.45 in", that is getting...

    I’m just working on my first saber as well, so I don’t know a whole lot, but if you look for the custom saber shop on YouTube, their channel has some good build tutorials on it.

    For the end caps on the walnut, I was thinking of using the .75" male/female extensions. I had not thought of 3d printing a full chassis, as most of the modeling I do for 3d printing has to be done...

    Other than the walnut piece, and a few small 3d printed pieces, I am trying to make as much of the saber as I can out of MHS parts, so I would rather not use custom 3d printed chassis discs made by a...

    Thank you for that link, from a first glance, it looks like you did roughly what I’m thinking of doing. I’ll spend some more time later going through that thread, to see what I can learn from it. In...

    My plan is to use the MHS v1 chassis discs to create a chassis that will fit into the saber. This makes adding an aluminum piece as a barrel difficult, as the wood combined with the proposed aluminum...

    I’m not going for a pure display piece, however I don’t plan on doing any dueling with this saber (mainly because I don’t know anyone to duel with). Using a sink tube as a barrel would make it...
  12. 1st Lightsaber Build! (with a partial wooden hilt)

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm starting work on my first lightsaber build, for which I'm going to try to use a custom made wooden body for the main part of the hilt . Here is a few images of what I hope to...

    true, the covers will have to be very thin, but in my design, they are only .05" thick, which when compared side by side with images of the PC and 18650 holder (which I will be using to hold a prizm...

    so is the outer row (1.05 diameter), the diameter of the circle with the holes that line up with the acrylic? If so, I think that should still work with my design. as you can see in the attached...

    ah, I realize that it has the position of the holes that don't line up with the acrylic section, but I'm looking for the placement of the holes meant to line up with the acrylic sections, which I...

    are you sure? on the product pages for the pcb/battery holders, and the charge port holder, as far as I can tell it only says that they are made of 3/16 acrylic and fit in the 1.25" ID chassis, and...
  17. Does anyone know the dimensions of MHS v1 chassis disks?

    Hello, as some of you might have seen in my last post, I am beginning to work on my first saber. I think I've come up with a final design, which, if any of you care to see it, an image of which is...

    I think some simple pattern engraving or etching would like cool on the copper section, if you are up for it, maybe a tree/vine crawling its way up the saber, not sure if that's the look you are...

    The MHS builder does have roughly what I'm looking for, which is basically hilt style 3, but longer, which is why I was looking into the possibility of getting that custom made, as well as possibly a...
