    Hmm, good point. Perhaps 1" ID PVC end caps, or similar?

    ::EDIT:: Nice, Jay-gon, those are perfect.

    Ah yes, quite right! That Vf of the deep red Rebel would put the resister in the realm of a 2 ohm 1 watt resistor, if I'm not mistaken.
    And like you say, a Cree would be the most elegant solution in...

    Also (please correct me if I'm wrong), but if you are planning on using a deep red Rebel Star that you linked to (which have a max current of 700mA), then the amperage value in this first calculation...

    Hmmm a good question, indeed! At the cons I've been to in the past, I've usually kept the blade out for the complete Jedi/Sith effect, and to be quicker to deflect blaster bolts from the occasionally...

    Ah, nice! That 22" bed length must be nice and roomy. Yep, I can image spending nearly half the price of the lathe on accessories alone, but your work proves it's worth.

    Very cool looking colors and clean design!

    Yikes, well said. I've been really waffling as to whether to invest in a lathe or not. What make/model of lathe are you working on, may I ask?

    Wow! Absolutely beautiful! This is what I love in a saber, the etching and weathering give it that used and authentic feeling true to the original trilogy and KoTOR. :D

    Yeah, I can imagine how helpful a selection of forstner bits would be in a build like this. And yes, drilling end grain is much harder indeed! Yikes, sounds frustrating with the slipping/scratching....

    Yeah, I'm in a similar situation, using PVC for a blade holder. I should think not, PVC schedule 40 pipe is rated for a maximum working temperature of 120 deg. F, and many builds have used PVC as the...

    Cool, I see, and nice use of woodburning to conceal the seams. I'm using a 1" forstner bit to bore out the internals, although since I'm lacking a drill press, it's a pretty nerve-racking procedure....

    Yeah, from what I understand, for a white blade--and if you want flash on clash like you mentioned above--you would need a Tri-Rebel or a Tri-Cree. If you want the FoC to be a different color than...

    Greetings Ravenwood! That's a very elegant saber design you have there. I really enjoy the sun gold powder coating, and the darker bands add a nice rhythm. Looking forward to following your build!
