Hey guys, i want to show you my progress on the Darth Malgus Saber i'm building. First of all these are the planned specs:
7.4v (2X 18650's)
Recharge and Rice ports
LEDengin 10 W Deep red or standard red (Full powah setup, no FoC)
Premiun TCSS speaker
So i started the saber by getting the Ultrasabers Malice emitter(larger claws) and round pommel:
I used a 5 inch extension for show only... but then i figured that the claws were too large and the pommel was not that close to the original one.
So i got the small claws emitter PAUSE:[ i could have gotten just the claws but i liked the look and feel of the larger claws that i decided to keep them. ] and the square pommel, plus i decided to go with the bronze button so i could paint it later, the red one is plastic looking.
Also i got a choke and a main body for it with some adapters. After some paint this is how it looks:
And here is a side by side with the TOR game lightsaber:
Si i still have a lot of work to do, i will be machining a safety plug that resembles the tip of the emitter shown on the picture above, that is why i painted the malice emitter all black to the end. When the blade inserted this plug will be removed and will be left looking like the saber on the right. I think its a good trade-of.
Next is to continue wiring the board and the switches and ports... while i wait for the custom plug.
and in case you were wondering what happened to the larger claws and extra sections i had, this is what i did:
Its going to be like a close combat weapon with a shorter blade... its a beast already without the blade LOL.
