Thread: Design and a list..ready to order?

  1. #1

    Default Design and a list..ready to order?

    I've been doing a lot of research over the last month here and I think I finally have a design I'm happy with and the list to complete it but could use a little help before placing my order. Thanks so much everyone for the helpful advice posted here, especial some of the comprehensive tutorials.

    The first design is all brass sink tube (1.5 and 1.25), and is very loosely based on Jay-gon's use of MHS adapters in his tutorials. I have brass on brass overlays, and a pvc grip, that I'm now considering reeded brass for If I can find it in 1.5 ID. Oh yeah and I have a clip system off a cell phone case.

    I also see that I need to figure out how to line my sled with some type of pvc and have planned to use a removable grip similar to graflex sabers to reveal a window in the brass body lined in pvc with a pvc door so to speak. The Pvc may also double to form my resonator.

    The second one will be sith design yet but similar list. (The design is done and looks killer!)

    Shopping List

    Once I have this figured out I have a girl friend who wants to double my order to join in on some dueling. Aside from all the adapters she has similar goals but wants to be my sith nemesis.

    Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks to me like you need a pommel, insert and clip????

    "The only thing I haven't found is a good grill. I've seen the one I want but not in stores yet. I just need to get out and look around. Oh yeah and I have a clip system off a cell phone case."

    Its not on my list because I'm making the hilt out of pvc and have a cell phone clip system. I've seen some floor drains that would look awesome for a grill but I've yet to really shop around yet.

    Oh yeah, I probably put the blade retention screw too high in my diagram. I believe it should be at the same height as the bolt attaching the shroud.

    Go to the plumbing setiong of Lowes and you can buy sink drains there.

    They are $3 I think...

    We don't have Lowes here and the Canadian Tire next door only has cheapy ones. I need to get out to Home Depot or Kent...

    I want something that is more then chrome with holes in it. Like Brass with some kind of design. So it seems that cutting down a floor drain would be these.

    Kent? You must be in the maritimes. Close to Halifax by chance?

    For sure...I don't think we're the only ones here...check out the backgrounds. Look familiar?

    I noticed you're into steampunk. Cool stuff!
    Someone told me to check out Plumbing Barn on Pine Street, Dartmouth

    Maybe I'll find my grill there!

    Go with the 10 degree lens instead of the 5. You'll be happier and it doesn't take modifying the holder for it.

    I see lots of "reeded" tubing there, you got some of that?

    If you're new, please take the time we all consider just as precious as you and READ!
