I'm in!

This will be a lot of fun. I've got a few ideas for this I hope I can trick you all and maybe you won't guess it's mine.  :cheesy: Unless of course it's not anonymous.  :cheesy:

Or one from that bunch of Probe Droids I saw yesterday finds you. Either way...  :cheesy:




I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.

Well, I think I know what I'm doing. Kinda. If I can pull this off, I'll be impressing even myself...

My guess is a guitar that turns into a saber. 2 birds and all.

A couple of years back, I did build a saber guitar out of some scraps I had laying around. It had Hasbro saber electronics wired in to the output and an led fretboard. It was also unplayable, mainly because the scraps I had laying around were scraps for a reason.  :tongue:

And I'm of a mind to say that the saber I've spent the last few days designing would probably be better as a standalone than a contest entry. I could get it to work within the criteria, but it'd be stretching the rules a bit. Which normally, I wouldn't mind, but seeing as I wrote the rules this time, I should probably stick to them. At least try and set a standard.  :wink:

I guess I should remind FJK about this. Also, that reminds me of something else.

Well, I'm out. An unexpectedly large electric bill has just eaten my saber budget for 2021.

You don't have to spend a ton to make a LED saber. This just notes it needs to light up. So have fun with a different kind of challenge.
We have done ones in the past for spending less than $50 and many people competed. It was awesome to see ingenuity.



For me USPS lost my TCSS package with parts I needed  :mad: so I am waiting on a new shipment at this point.
