    It's my opinion that a little bit of vibration goes a long way. When using the small Radio Shack motor I put a fairly good size resistor on it to slow it down substantially. I like the subtle feel...

    You've probably already moved on with this but I would use a couple of plastic washers that fit the inside diameter of the hilt like a glove. You'd be making a chamber but it doesn't have to be...

    I have so many small details along that 1.5" space. Those few pictures don't really show it all. The "crystal" alone isn't all that important to me at least not as a single focus. It's there, it...

    I may have confused a few. What you see for the Graflex body is my old model. I kept modifiying it to the point where I thought I went too far. That and my chassis wasn't the greatest. I made a...

    That's good enough to get it going. If you're going to build an internal chassis wait until you have the Graflex and blade adapter so you can make precise measurements. I can't see that you'll need...

    I like the use of the blade cutout as a windowed housing. You know if you took fine grain sand paper and scuffed it up in a uniform fashion it would glow more red too as it would diffuse the light...
