What type of saber is it? Does it have an Anti Vandal switch now?

Another thing to keep in mind is a stunt typically requires a latching switch. A momentary switch will only keep the blade on if you hold down the button UNLESS you have a soundboard configured for a momentary switch.

Or you can get a Pololu board to use a momentary with a stunt circuit.

thank you for your help brother,what does anti vandal mean and do i have to use a resistor and a buck puck to hook up a 6mm Anti Vandal Latching Blue Ring Switch for a saber with no sound, i haven't tried to make any sabers yet i want to make sure i get everything right before i try, so i don't mess it up on my first try i have spent a lot of time looking at this website but i don't read that well, the ones with picture sink it more i want to start off small, i am mostly going to just going to build no sound sabers for a while so my friends and i can duel, i like the illuminated switches cause they look. i learn the best by watching http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Assets/ProductImages/lrbr1.jpg
