EFX Skywalker Reveal Lightsaber - Real Crystal Core -
« on: June 19, 2013, 07:11:51 AM »
Hello. As mentioned in some previous topics some of u know how badly I wanted to do this. I was very nervous to do it but today was the day to fulfill my thoughts.
I dremeled the plastic stone out of the crystal chamber:


Previously I've done the crystal core separately and added some electronics I wanted to have in there. Of course I had to find and order a real gem stone. I used a Danburit from Pakistan which is very rare in that shape with double ends (It's a very expensive stone in my opinion but well worth as the light will shine through it):


And finally the completed Crystal Core:


The lights are all intact and shines now more bright and wonderful through a real rare crystal:


I hope you like my little project.

Yes, I highly recommend these sabers. I got mine for 500$ shipping included. I think with all the extras that came with it it's a good pricing tag... Good luck on your search.

Romad I can help u in doing this. Just pm me your questions. If u have a still hand, it is not a big project. MTFBWU ;)

That looks great!  The Luke ROTJ has always been my favorite saber and these reveal sabers are awesome.

Nice!!

I prefer the clear crystal set-up to the Danburit one: whilst I prefer 10x the natural colour of the Danburit when not lit, I think that the clear crystal looks more like a proper crystal chamber set-up - the crystal being bigger, it looks like it is attached to the metal tube at the bottom, as opposed to the Danburit who seems to be 'floating' in the chamber...

Cheers,

Francois
