thedazeel #ProjectSkywalker Update 3
-
-
Today I fitted in the small illumination electronics. Just light, no sound I'm afraid. Very simple but just aligning it with the holes was a bit tricky. Hopefully I should be able to build a switch extension piece that allows the control box to activate the illumination. -

thedazeel #ProjectSkywalker Update 2
-
In between each of the guide rails I built a series of "power conduits"
I wanted the inside to look complex but yet realistic, gritty technology as this saber was built essentially from junk bought from traders on Tatooine. -
It was very fiddly and frankly frustrating to build but I'm pleased with the outcome.

  •   decomissioned_sabers The metal rods with the screw on the end do you make them or find them? 3d
  •   thedazeel They are stainless steel rods from the inside of pepper grinders. I've used them many times before. Very useful. 3d
  •   decomissioned_sabers Pure Genius!! I see them in you stuff and all I can think is those would be so useful 2d
  •   thedazeel Search in big shops like Walmart that sell home and kitchenwares. Ways a good source of cheap materials. 2d

thedazeel I couldn't resist...
I've disassembled my #SaberForge #ProdigalSon and I plan to rebuild the sliding mechanism and crystal chamber to my own design.
Don't get me wrong, I love the saber, it's gorgeous, made of excellent quality materials and expertly-crafted but I want to make it my own. :D -

  •   thedazeel Please note the #ProdigalSon has been slightly customised by me, I coloured the guide rods brassy and the crystal green. 1w

thedazeel Been doing slight customisation to my #SaberForge 'Prodigal Son' -
Before and After

The rods are made of stainless steel but I thought a brassy look would be more interesting to the eye. Also coloured the crystal the appropriate green. -

  •   brandonwayne627 Looking good!!! 2w
  •   thedazeel @brandonwayne627 Their "first generation" Prodigal Son had brass rods but they improved it with steel, however I thought the brass colour looked better as most crystal chamber designs have a golden/brass theme. 2w
  •   brandonwayne627 Completely agree! Gives it a much more "star wars" look 2w

thedazeel Here's a more colour-balanced photo of my new Sith #CustomLightsaber

I decided to go for the Dark Side this time as something different. Plus I had fun building this and applying artificial wear/scorching to it. :)

thedazeel My newest #CustomLightsaber -

From the Sith home world of Moraband, this ancient Lightsaber was likely wielded during the great galactic war against the once-mighty Sith Empire.
It is now a dusty relic of much darker times long since past. -

thedazeel From the depths of the "Jedi Temple" (my garage) comes one of my unfinished lightsaber projects.
I'll finish it one day when I have the parts I feel will work best on it but for now it's just a relic...
