    The connectors give another possible point of failure. Have you used a meter to check continuity on each side?

    I started this saber about 5 years ago. It's TCSS parts (a long choke and two short extensions for the body) with part of the TCSS recharge port disks and a 3d printed chassis to hold the speaker...

    If your battery is charged, how close is your card to the speaker? I had to be sure mine was more than 1/4" or so away or it did that.

    Looks like a couple pics are missing, but what a great project for parents and kids right now. Very cool.

    Try Google. I have purchased from a few different places. Aluminum, brass, etc. Watch prices and shipping. However, you can do some really nice stuff with parts from TCSS. Ass some shrouds, etc...

    You need to verify the pinout on the Transistor, I got some that were reversed. You also need to check the pinout on the recharge port, the ones I got locally were backwards to the ones sold in the...

    That's about as close as you'll get with stock MHS parts. The blade holder has to be deep enough to hold the blade, so you can't make it as thin as the movie prop.

    The only thing missing from the...

    I'm not sure he can go deep enough to give that effect on a standard piece. However he does do some pieces with a large OD. You might be able to get the ribbed pattern put into a larger OD which...

    I believe the nano board is limited to 2000mA. You need to stay below that. As to what to use for resistors, follow the link I posted above and play with it. Tell it to output in a wiring diagram...

    For Series wiring, see http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz . It shows wiring in parallel with a 1 ohm 2 watt resistor for each die. Useful site for this typo of thing.

    I'd like to see a range or parts with smaller OD, maybe 1.25" or 1.2". With the Nano boards, there shouldn't be a problem getting a sound card into the smaller parts.

    I was wondering if the NB would fit turned sideways. That would make more space, too. I think I'll probably have to order some parts and see how things fit with the battery in the choke. That's...

    Thanks for the comments. FWIW, the drawing is a 2"DF with the #8. :) I had though about a screw in the bottom or one in each side to hold it in place, a micro switch in the box on top, if I can...

    Thoughts on design

    Not a parts list yet, but a design render. The idea is to go smaller and less clunky than many (including the other two I've made.) It will have a nano board, a single 18650 (don't think 2 would...

    It looks like you have two blade holders overlapping in the drawings. If that's intentional, it won't work. If it was just a rendering mistake, no worries.
