    Forget about that, I'm still trying to figure out how to keep the blade from flying out of the blade holder.

    Default blade

    blade retention screw should be all that is needed. Is it still flying out even with the screw?

    i had a small question and found this thread in your signature... fantastic. now, not only is my question answered, but you have helped me with other questions i didn't even know to ask. And, i won't look like 'the lazy new guy'. Thank you for an excellent intro-to post.

    hmmm. i didnt see this thread at first for some reason. this is exactly what i wanted. i have the building know how, just not the perfect shopping mind! i see lots of shiny parts and stuff i want and forget what i need to actually build the saber.

    The MHS Builder is your friend. Play in there to get an idea to get an idea of how parts look together.
    Try to keep the length in mind though, it's easy to design something that's a lot more massive than you expected.
    Yes, I spell it sabre. I just like it that way.
