    Also I think this one deserves way better sound when you could get to that point. =] Just a thought.

    Agreed - most excellent work for a first saber!
    If you ever decide to revise it, I would suggest going with a NB at the very least.

    Yes, I did have to drill through the threads. I had to sand them down afterward to get to come apart and back together. But there was no other way to get the look I wanted. My goal from the beginning was to make a saber that was unlike any other I ever saw.

    I will upgrade later to a PC or a NB. It will certainly make my internal rooming issue much less problematic. I had an old MR Darth Vader lightsaber with a broken blade that I took the soundboard out of. I have the sound board, a 9 volt battery and a 5v regulator inside the handle. I was trying to do things as inexpensive as I could. But it takes up a lot of room.

    Argh I wish I could make that as my first saber. That's awesome.

    The cuts on the shroud look so clean. How long did that take to get it looking so good?

    I used the MHS Sleeve material. It was all shiny and it didn't look right. I use fine sandpaper to give it a brushed Aluminum look to it.

    It wasn't easy making the shroud to look just right. I had a Dremel tool with a sanding head on it. I would roughly sand it down to the correct shape. And then hand sand it with fine sand paper till it was correct.
