    I just read a little article about the Disneyland shop and yeah, based on the pictures I'd say that their hilts are pretty wide in diameter and the blades are chunky for only being 31" long. It looks...

    What if you're paying someone to be burned with a soldering iron on your behalf?

    That's true, aye. But on the other hand, there surely are ways to mask the threads that will withstand the plating process. Silicone plugs of some kind for female and possibly a cap of some type for...

    Well perhaps by electroplating or another means, but based on the fact that I've seen it done and have had professional metal finishers tell me it's possible, then there's a way to put brass over...

    Hi Silver. I've already placed the order for the aluminium parts from the shop, and having them done from solid brass, while appealing, would have been monstrously expensive to accomplish, and a...
  6. Brass Plating a Lightsaber -- Help needed!

    Hi everyone,

    Yet another question from me here. I really really really want to give my MHS-parts hilt a brass finish. I don't mean paint or goldish anodizing or powdercoating that doesn't really...
  7. Hi Braxus, that does help, thanks. Especially...

    Hi Braxus, that does help, thanks. Especially since I want a deep thrumming bassy Vader-style idle hum despite this being a lightsider's weapon.

    May the Force of others be with you.
  8. Do I need to replace my speaker mount with a chassis?

    Hi folks,

    For my build I'm planning on keeping it simple internally using the MHSv1 Speaker Mount Style 6. Now, I'm using the MPS Pommel style 3 v3 with this saber, and I fear that'll mean my...

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the pics. I've actually decided to all but abandon powdercoating except for using the copper vein on my lower grip section (doing a Mara Jade-style grooved 4" section), mostly...

    Lightsaber anodizing

    Hi folks
    I've had a thought about having my hilt components anodized instead of powder-coated, so I could weather and overpaint them easier without changing the surface feel of the metal too much....

    Hi folks,

    If anyone has some photos (or can take some) of their hilts/parts/anything powdercoated in "Flat Olive Drab" and "Transparent Copper", would you please post them in the replies here? I'd...

    Poll: The box in the picture is only a representation...

    The box in the picture is only a representation of the one I want, the Box Style 28 kit. Unless I'm mistaken, I can use one or two switches mounted in it to operate the electronics. If I am mistaken,...

    Aurebesh engraving service?

    Hi y'all. When I get around to doing my hilt, I want to have "THE FORCE IS WITH ME AND I AM WITH THE FORCE" engraved on the grip in Aurebesh. I don't know if TCSS can do that; if not, does anyone...

    Hi Darth Beaner.
