    Nice coating and looking clean. Good stuff! IMO a few more small overlays or other details would add a little more character to draw attention from the MHS.

    Nice Job! Fiberglass is cool stuff if you have good ventilation and can avoid small fibers getting into your skin. I'm almost done with a custom motorcycle gas tank myself.

    Maybe something conductive is touching the hilt. No thermal tape under LED or not centered on the heatshrink? Not always an issue but a potential fail point.

    Another solution is to get rid of the dring and use another material. I've used one before to hold a tassel.

    IIRC fitting a 5" extension would mean the speaker holder is no more then 4". BH6 adds a standard 2 inches to the outer length of your build. Anytime the dimensions are missing on parts you might...

    I've done one and have another one planned. I still find myself looking for ways to improve my method. It's a tight fit and ideally should be easily disassembled if you need to repair it.

    If it's like other sabers then I suspect the lens in the blade holder has shifted getting in the way of the BH threads. You may risk damaging the wires on your LED or the LED itself but with your...

    Thanks guys.

    Defcon4 - I swirled light grey, medium, and black at the same time over a black base. Your method worked great for one colour. To get the same results you did I would have used...

    I did this last year but didn't post it here. First on a stunt saber then on a guitar. It's a dip swirl technique popularized amoung guitarists by Steve Vai's guitar on the Passion and Warfare album....

    The one thing that really got my attention is the colour scheme and knurled grip. You've got me thinking about knurling again.

    Cool! I was wonder why people are pushing for smaller hilts lately. Most of the hilts I've built I don't find too heavy or difficult to grip and can duel for 15-20 mins before tiring. But then again...

    You should go with a resister. As long as there's enough current to meet the LEDs need then it will be full brightness and you could even overdrive it a little for extra brightness. I have done...

    Nice! If you want to align the switch/emitter better just sand the choke male end so it will turn in deeper. It takes some patience but should do the trick. It doesn't take much sanding to shift it...

    I really like your MHS choices on the lower half of the hilt, although I would move half of the obstructions to the upper hilt to make the lower hilt more usable. That box makes a nice stop point for...

    Nice clean cut and polish. Looks like you have a switch bezel on top of your switch box. I'm guessing you couldn't get a short version of the AV switch? Your recharge port could of been flush too....

    Wow..someone is posting on the wrong forum I'm guessing. lol

    Nice saber. A little long, but good choices. It's too bad the graflex"style parts don't have a hoop. I love that part.
