Thread: Heat sink for custom blade holder help

    Default Heat sink for custom blade holder help

    I'm relatively new to the saber making (smithing?) scene, as in first lightsaber, and I'm milling/ lathing a custom blade holder out of new aluminum. I've already ordered the parts for the saber, but seem to overlooked the technicalities of the heat sink. From all of the information I can find, the heat sink is made of 5 important parts, the led, lense, lense holder, copper disk and aluminum... Sleeve thing... My question is; is the aluminum part required to hold the whole assembly together? In which case I may need to Modify my blade holder plans.

    Yes. The led and lens are placed inside the aluminum holder and the heat sink is screwed in to the holder.

    Also if you use the internal view of the MHS builder you can see how everything fits together. The holder has a lip that locks into place in the female section, held in place by the male threads of the blade holder.
