This run is looking great so far.  I gotta agree with Darth Steve -- these runs are awesome to be apart of.

Finally got my batteries from AW.  He didn't have enough and had to order them from his supplier.



Grooved emitter section.



Don't know if it is clear enough, but the grooved emitter section has three seperate internally threaded areas.  All three are different thread diameters.

With the neck section from the previous update.



Pommel Cube blank sections.



I was hoping to get the large grip section turned this weekend but I had some troubles with my mill and I spent the weekend tearing it apart to find out what was broken.  Hopefully next week I can get to them and assemble everything so far into a 'fairly' recognizable shape.

Yes, they will be numbered.  But that is more for me so I can keep parts together to ensure proper alignment of the parts on each saber.  The numbers will most likely be hand engraved on the inside of certain parts for my reference.  I may try and do a nicer number inside the pommel cap, but I doubt there will be any numbers on the outside.  I haven't given it a lot of thought, but no place jumps out as a good place for a number that won't affect the looks of the saber.

I think the hilts should not be numbered externally considering that this saber is meant to be screen accurate. Numbering would change that. Internal on the pommel cap or something like that would be neat, but not necessary.
