    It does! Especially since all the soldering went well and my wiriing plan worked on the first to. But then again I don't have a sound board so the set-up is super simple.

    All wired up! 11857

    Doing some detail work on the hilt and designing a shroud. More pics to follow.

    Well I DO already happen to have plans for my Sith themed hilt ;)

    Yeah I'm just gonna use the AAAs as a temporary setup and order the 14650 pack. Reason why I stuck with the BuckPuck is because I can't return it and would rather not waste the money. I got the...

    Thanks guys! So as it turns out, thanks to some bad advice, the 18650 is not going to provide enough power for the BuckPuck to function. I don't know how I overlooked that detail seeing how it's 3.7V...

    My order from TCSS is showing up tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited! However while I've been waiting, I decided to design and make my own custom chassis parts. It's designed to hold the 18650...

    Thanks! Yeah that sorta makes sense haha. I'd definitely be curious to see a different way to execute it.

    Thanks guys! Definitely hoping the hilt turns out the way I'm picturing it. Considering it will be my first build, I don't really know what to expect but I'm hoping for the best. Here's the rendering...

    Custom Lightsaber Stand

    So while I've been trying so hard to wait patiently for the parts to come in for my first build, I decided to make a stand for my hilt. I think it's gonna look great with the hilt propped up on...

    Yeah it turned out great! It's going to look even better after the extension gets powder coated. The blue ring is really going to stand out against the black when it lights up.
  12. Awesome! Everything is on order. Hoping my saber...

    Awesome! Everything is on order. Hoping my saber parts ship this week! Tim sent me a photo of the switch hole he machined into my extension and I'm getting really excited about it.

    You are AWESOME, Ty_Bomber! Thank you for that. I'll probably just go with the shorter list above. Cost is a factor at this point but I also don't want to have the hilt plugged in for hours like you...
  14. Yeah I've been doing some more research and...

    Yeah I've been doing some more research and discovered that I'm definitely going to need a Li-ion battery to get this thing bright enough. I picked up some solder wick to soak up as much of the...

    Okay so I've been doing a lot of reading on LED wiring and whatnot. Needless to say, I want this thing to be crazy bright...just like everyone else. As I stated before, the LED I'm running is a B/B/B...

    I'm in the same boat however I have a drill press, band saw, and bench mounted belt sander. Thinking about picking up a milling vise for my drill press to convert it into a vertical mill.
  17. Thanks! I have some machining experience and time...

    Thanks! I have some machining experience and time using mills so I'm hoping I can make the shroud look better than the photos. Guess we'll see...
  18. Thanks! When I built the saber in the builder...

    Thanks! When I built the saber in the builder program, I just added a plain extension piece off to the side, saved it as a jpeg, then photoshopped it. Here's what the straight on view should look...

    Tim and I spoke about it and we actually did a little change up. He's going to recess the switch hole for me and instead of using a latching switch, I'm going to use a short momentary switch with the...

    Yeah true...however TCSS is about to put out a new pommel (name escapes me at the moment) that might look awesome on my build!

    I actually wanted to use MPS Pommel Style 8 but it's out of stock.



    Thanks for the tips. I was planning on putting the switch in the center of the 3" section but if you think I need more room...
  22. New to the hobby but have some awesome plans!

    Hey guys, new to the forum and new to building sabers but like most of you I've been a Star Wars fan for decades. Finally decided to build a saber and have a general idea of what I want to do with...
