Unfortunately I didn't see about this run until after the list was closed, since that is something I plan on getting eventually for something I have in mind to do.

Those of us with loyalties to the Empire prefer to celebrate 'The Sith of May' as our holiday.  So, to celebrate, how about some progress pictures?





It's starting to get a familiar shape now I think.  I have the bottom grip half turned.  I have the grip half and knurl parts screwed together and now I can use a specially made jig to line them up, drill through for alignment and mill the grip slots.  I am almost done with the blade holder section - I have the holder, heatsink and chassis mount completed.  The blade holder part needs to get anodized and I need to make the spring plate for the chassis mount and those will wrapped up.  This coming weekend (and probably next weekend) I will be doing the knurl ring (for the front half of the knurl section) and doing the mill work on the lower grips.  A few other parts - inserts, covertech, box bar and brass button - and the lower half should be pretty much complete.

wow this is so much work  :o
We are all looking at the stars, we are Homo-sapiens-Stellaris.
when I see other's sabers I might think they have build them like a Tardis, bigger inside than oustide. Unlike mines huhu.

Hey Erik

I was just watching a video Justin (Primrodo) did on his Ep3 Saber you made for him and I had a quick question, which board is going in the clamp, the movie one or the C3 one?
