    Default Blanking Cap Switch Covers

    This is mostly to Tim or Corbin, but since four of us active people wanted a lead on what Madcow used to cover his switch I don't think it's a bad idea at all to see if we can get something like it carried.

    Maybe even a line of covers for the switches carried could be made...

    Here's the idea I have after seeing how Parks did it: He made a knurled cap with a milled/drilled in recess on the back. This recess then fit tightly over the switch stalk.

    I think this has potential because there are a few prequel sabers with knobs that could make decent covers. One knurled like Obi TPM and Qui-gon's, one with a "coin edge", a blank one, etc... Maybe they could be plain so we could paint them, or I'd love anodizing them.

    I think they would sell fast.

    I know in 90% of cases where I'd buy the pushbutton I'd want a cap. Plus... we'd have the Modular Switch System!

    My only reservation in suggesting it is the volume that might be required for something so small.

    great idea.
    Would be nice to have options other than a black or rubber knob protruding from the saber. In some designs it just doesn't work well.
    All things a beginning have.
    As all things do an ending.
    Be not too hasty from one to the other to move, or much will you miss, along the way.

    Agreed, I don't like any of them in their current configuration. Being able to cover it, however, would open a cornucopia of possibilities.

    Bold is the word of the day on the calendar :P .

    Toil awhile ... endure awhile ... believe always ... and never turn back.

    Just so others have a good idea here's a picture of it on a Parks:



    It's not a complete cover... it's still the same switch with the bezel and all. It's just more in the SW universe by adding it.

    i'd buy them, not only for switches, but just general saberbling.
    And yes, the Vos saber is awesome.
