    Already disassembled the bulb socket and looks like I'll be able to place a blade holder behind it and retain the socket springs which snug the blade already Think I'll go for a purely Sith design. Going to be digging around for inspiration for a bit I think. Trying to go Sith yet not Vader knock off too much.

    Following, I have a couple of the Heiland flashes I want to convert to Vader version ANH and ESB, but I'm stuck on the blade holder.

    I purchased a sinktube 1.5" blade holder that I'm going to try to turn down to the needed 1.43" needed to fit and see how that goes.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your progress on this.

    So far it's really slow. Had a free hour or so and tried resizing the blade holder. Got maybe .05" off it seems

    Tried rigged the drill press as a lathe. Only kinna works. Lol.

    So on a whim and went and bought a new course metal file this morning. BOOM! that was the issue. Knocked the 1.5 down to about 1.41" and the blade holder slides in with just a hint of rubbing and will slide all the way to the threads. Did have to hit the flash tube with the Dremel sanding flapper wheel a little too, just to clean it up and knock off the edges from the holes in it.
