    Hey Stryder i got my parts i ordered and i had problems trying to create the blade it would be nice if you updated the images of your tutorial i had a argument with my father who work tools i was using to build it (he is a broadcast engineer and has worked in repairing electronics for 20 years). Since he thought it was a normal wire that somehowed glowed he told me i was wrong and tring to find the image on theforce.net and finally had to go to coolneon to find what i was looking for

    it would be nice to get a magnafied view of the almost invisable fragile wires i got it working but only after consulting the elwire website. Also could you sell your polyE already straightened in your kits dont own a heat gun to straighten mine maybe add a dollar or something to the cost would save alot of hassle

    I will get better pictures of this if I can. My camera doesnt do very good close up. Sorry, but I dont plan on offering straightening as a service. Eventually I do plan on stocking some straight polye though.

    I put it on a metal rod and then heat it with a heat gun

    I've got a question on the EL wire, too. How much do I need to buy? Because if it runs up and down the tubing, then I need double the length of the tube. How many times do you reccomend going up and down. I was just thinking up once and down once. And by the way, I was looking at a four foot long blade.

    I got mine to go 4 times up and down.
