Thread: NEED HELP WIRING! No Clue where to start; First saber conversion.

    Question NEED HELP WIRING! No Clue where to start; First saber conversion.

    Hey Saber community,

    I am a complete newb to converting and building sabers. I have watched many different tutorials and videos on what parts I need and how to build a basic saber, but I have NO IDEA how to properly wire a saber.

    I have three sabers I want to work on.
    1st: Darth Vader MR
    2nd: Personal Saber Forge lightsaber
    3rd: Luke Skywalker ANH Black Series Saber

    With Darth Vader's being the most important right now, I have all the pieces that I need to put it together, except for the wires and resistors. I don't have the faintest clue what gauges I need or honestly how to wire anything for this first saber.
    So far I have a Nano Biscotti chip for it, so I can install flash on clash and saber lock.
    I also wanted to try and install the two small momentary switches I have into the DV MR box under the bubble strip thats in it. I've seen the saber smith Shameem do it on one of his conversions and wanted to know how to wire it properly, so I can have the top side to press for activation, and the bottom side for saber lock effect.

    Please if someone could help me and show me a diagram or a instructional for newbs such as myself, I would forever be grateful.

    Thank you saber community! May the force be with you...

    1.) Reading the NB manual should help shed some light..

    (you wont be using the led string or any of the existing internals really)

    There should be a ton of posts/tutorials on conversion here. (and other places)



    2.) Wont get much help here with that (ie: Ultra Sabers)


    3.) Same as #1 above


    Do you have a main LED? battery pack? (you said you have all pieces)

    FYI NB does not have lockup effects and does not allow for two switches.

    That was going to be my main comment as well...

    Look up the NB manual from its page in the store and read it through a couple times, That should give ou a basic understanding of how to wire a saber. THEN we will be able to be of better assistance once you have more specific questions...

    Okay thank you! I'll read through it and return with questions once I get a better understanding of the manual.
