    What type of saber is it? Does it have an Anti Vandal switch now?

    "Yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before... you want blindingly bright, super loud, running 1138 blinkies off of the cheapest sound card you can find AND you want all of it to run on a battery the size of a dime, and run for a very, VERY long time. That one cracks me up every time..."

    Another thing to keep in mind is a stunt typically requires a latching switch. A momentary switch will only keep the blade on if you hold down the button UNLESS you have a soundboard configured for a momentary switch.

    Or you can get a Pololu board to use a momentary with a stunt circuit.

    If you're new, please take the time we all consider just as precious as you and READ!

    thank you for your help brother,what does anti vandal mean and do i have to use a resistor and a buck puck to hook up a 6mm Anti Vandal Latching Blue Ring Switch for a saber with no sound, i haven't tried to make any sabers yet i want to make sure i get everything right before i try, so i don't mess it up on my first try i have spent a lot of time looking at this website but i don't read that well, the ones with picture sink it more i want to start off small, i am mostly going to just going to build no sound sabers for a while so my friends and i can duel, i like the illuminated switches cause they look. i learn the best by watching
