    Ripper, I am new to the forums and have a few questions about your PVC sabers. Do you strictly use PVC or do you use a combination of PVC, MHS parts, etc to build your awesome looking hilts? Also, what do you do for a blade holder? Specifically how do you address the issue of securing the main LED module & heatsink? I'm pulling ideas together to produce a hilt for Episode VII but I'm on a tight budget so PVC seems to be an economical route. I appreciate any insights you can offer?

    Welcome to the forums, Shiblon.

    Rip pretty much sticks to PVC as far as I know.

    All you really need to do for PVC blade holding is put a blade retention screw into 1"ID PVC pipe. TCSS sells heat sink modules for 1"ID tubes, those would be secured with a second set screw.

    Great work, as always, Rip.
