    Inspired by Jay-gon's PVC Hilts, I am going to start designing and building a series of hilts that are seen through the Expanded Universe. At first, I plan to make only lit sabers, but soon I plan to include sound with them too.

    My first project is going to be an Imperial Knight Saber. I already have the hilt designed, I just need to know if I am missing anything from the parts list for the LED, specifically if I need some form of a heatsink. If I do need one, can someone give me any suggestions on where to get one/how to make one?

    For a heatsink in a PVC saber, check out this thread:

    3/4" copper pipe endcap works like a charm.
    We all have to start somewhere. The journey is all the more impressive by our humble beginnings. for the lazy man's resistor calculator! for getting resistor values the right way!

    Yeah they do, you can use them for just about any 3 wat. led, and with a little modification (1" section of 3/4" id. copper pipe, and 1" section of 3/4" aluminum rod along with the endcap. Wrap the whole assembly with aluminum plumbers tape to hold everything together) you can run a 10 wat. led with no problems
