    Thank you again, I will try rewiring later tonight. I never left the LED on for too long and nothing was getting hot, so I hope I haven't damaged anything. Only time will tell I suppose. In the...

    I see. I should have asked this beforehand as I have heard that before, but this switch actually has terminals labeled + and -. Why label them positive and negative? (also, not asking intending to...

    Thanks for the reply. I will get some pics later tonight, will try to manage late afternoon if possible. Here is a link to the switch in the meantime:...

    Latching switch conundrum

    Greetings all. I've got something weird happening and hoping someone can shed some light. First, set up:

    Stunt saber:
    Tri cree: red orange x3, only using two of the LED'S, resistored.
    Latching...

    Popping on speaker when power is low?

    I've got my CF8 build working and it is amazing. Will probably do a Prizm next time just for ease of installation, but this was a great learning experience.

    One thing I'm curious about, but a...
  6. Thanks. I figured this would be the case, but as...

    Thanks. I figured this would be the case, but as I’ve never worked a lathe, didn’t know for sure. I decided I’m going without FOC, without a rice port, and without a crystal chamber LED. This...
  7. Inner diameter of hilt body is too small.

    I finished my wiring of my CF8, and everything appears to be working. Most difficult and frustrating build ever, I.e. a good learning experience. ;-)

    However, I misjudged the space the wires...

    I heard back from Erv and he said that you calculate resistance using the Vf of the battery when doing Pseudo-Color Mixing. Thanks Erv!

    Roger that, will be going back and forth with it (sand 3 or 4 passes, try it out, R&R) to make sure I don't take off too much.

    I found out that it is a capacitor, and I found a cross section for that type of capacitor. After looking at it and hearing back from someone who's done 4 builds of this kind, I should be able to...
  11. Filing down the yellow component on the CF8 - GOTH 3D chassis and Saberforge hilt

    Greetings again. I've come to the unfortunate conclusion that to fit this board into my saber using the chassis I got from GOTH 3D, I have to file down the yellow component on the CF8 board that is...

    Got the board hacked successfully (ran the board with just power and sound, was able to boot/activate)!

    Now, I’ve started looking over pages 40 and 41 again in the manual, and it has me...
  13. Roger, thanks FJK. Now I just gotta do the hack....

    Roger, thanks FJK. Now I just gotta do the hack. Erv makes it look easy. Might have to crack open some old piece of electronics and practice on it first.

    Bump! Going to start work on it later today. If anyone has time to check out my diagram, it would be a big help! No worries if not.

    Since you're using a recharge port, I've wired the LED of the switch directly to the recharge port: ground of the LED going to the same negative terminal used for the soundboard, positive of the LED...

    And sorry for the messy line drawings. Anybody know of a good diagram program? lol
  17. Crystal Focus 8 w/hack, RGB LED/RGB crystal diagram

    I am 98% sure my wiring on this diagram is correct. Would someone please check it and let me know if I ran amiss anywhere? Thank you!
  18. Yep, and less time consuming as well. I'm not...

    Yep, and less time consuming as well. I'm not going to use JST connectors to try and save space, so I would have to cut wires, resolder, whole lotta ugh.
  19. Thanks. I'm doing a green momentary switch and a...

    Thanks. I'm doing a green momentary switch and a purple momentary switch, both are 3.0 volts. Technically, I would need an 18ohm, 1/8W resistor. Think I could get away without them though?

    My...
  20. CF8 Power-on Indicator/Accent LED pad is regulated=no resistor?

    Greetings. There is a question I haven't been able to find an answer to, clearly at least.

    On page 39 of the manual, it says that the Power-On Indicator pad is "a regulated 3.3V pad". That...

    I went ahead and found regular ones; had to buy 100, but I got a good price at least. Still curious though if anyone wants to chime in. No worries if not :-)

    Current sense resistors okay to use?

    I'm almost 100% sure these are okay to use on the CF8 PEX pads, but they sound a little different from your typical SMD resistor, almost like a dynaohm. I need (2) 1 ohm 2 Watt SMD resistors for...

    Thanks for the replies. I’ve also emailed NTE just to see what they say. I found another spec sheet with the same values as reported on the back of the packaging. Still thinking like you all,...
  24. Trust the NTE LED packaging, or the spec sheet?

    So I found this RGB LED for my crystal chamber at a local Micro Center. It is NTE model NTE30115. The spec sheet is here: http://www.nteinc.com/specs/30100to30199/pdf/nte30115.pdf

    Boom. Thanks for the quick response FJK (hope using the acronym is okay :p ) I'm a believer in resistors as well. Also, while the NB board is "simpler" in terms of the number of joints you usually...
