Thread: Kids saber?

  1. #1

    Default Kids saber?

    Does anyone know where to get or what the name is of a cute little gizmo that would make for a neat start to a kids saber. It is a thin poly tube with a single strand of el-wire through the center attached to a black metal housing that holds the inverter and 3 AA batteries. The "blade" is about 24" and the "hilt is about 10". I wouldn't mind making a few sabers for my son's friends but I can't really spend a fortune either.







    Does this help? Anyone? If this is a forbidden topic just let me know. I just can't stand it when I don't know what a part is.

    I have never seen one of those before. Interesting design though.

    That almost looks like a mini-mag lite.

    You know, the second I typed that, I had a vision of twisting the blade to get it to come on.

    I saw a reference to a similar device that was listed a rave party light or maybe light wand (I think it was called something like that), I may have seen it in my quest for EL stuff before I found Tim's shop.

    Maybe I will have to design something like this for the little ones.

    I thought it was really neat. I have tried searching for this thing by all kinds of names but no luck. The first time I saw I thought about the maglite thing too, but the switch was a little button on the bottom with a rubber cover more like the big maglites.

    Tim, if you think it's a cool idea and want to explore the possibility of making up somthing like this I am pretty sure I can talk the owner into letting you borrow it for a while to spec it. He has been hounding me about a yellow saber anyway[]

    I have one of these.

    This is the inner part of the mini-saber that Jedigear used sell. They have been closed for a few months now and I don't know if they're coming back. http://www.jedigear.com/

    Here is a picture of it w/ the saber "shell"

    The shell comes off and you get what is pictured in the original post.

    Here is the shell compared to a Parksaber Inertia:


    I believe that they were also sold at the Parksabers booth at Comic Con last year.
