Graflex Crystal Core saber Chassis
« on: October 25, 2023, 09:39:13 AM »
Hello everyone :)

I come back on the forum after a long time beeing absent.

I bought a long time ago a chassis from Yoda and never had the time to build it.
I wanted to ask the community if there is a video about building the YODA Graflex Crystal Core saber Chassis in the version below, and maybe have some information on how modify the system so it can accept Neopixel blade :)







It would be really easier for me to have this kind of video in addition with the building booklet.

Does this exist ?

Thank you all :)

It's probably the most known concept through the world !

That chassis was designed to use two 14500 Li-Ion cells for 7.4 volts (too much for a neopixel blade, IIRC), which likely wouldn't be able to handle the current draw of a neopixel blade. Those require at minimum an 18650 high drain type of cell.

Thanks for your reply !
I will use a led instead, ok 👍

I never made a building video for it only the instruction manual but the manual is very thorough with a lot of pictures that cover the whole process. If you have questions post them here and I'll try to assist you best I can  :wink:

You would have to go to McMaster-Carr for those. They would carry all of that.



I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

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

Just for companies !

Maybe anyone else have an idea ?

Find a specialty screw dealer in Europe. They have to exist.

Hello Saberland !
I’ve found my screws in France !
When you take time to search, you find  :angel:

I’ve got a question but I think, only @Yoda can give the answer. Is there anyone who has the PDF file of the instruction manual of the Cristal core Saber chassis ?
My cat ate it   :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:
I’m joking  :cool:
I need to have some details of installation, cause I can’t see the way some black parts are attached together…
Thanks a lot !

Hello there Tywann
Glad to see you finally getting your chassis together and I'm glad you were able to find the screws
The entire Manual as a PDF is quite large because of the image sizes but...
Let me know what pages you are looking for and I'll see if I can size them so they can be sent online
and get them to you through email.
PM message me the email address you want them sent to. :wink:

MTFBWY
always
YODA

Hello Saberland !
Hello Master Yoda !
Again, thank you for your patience and the sending of the manual images !

Got a question, page 12, you talk about a 4-40 thread taping… I found a thread tap which is M3 with 3mm
I think it’s too big.
Do I need a 2,5mm thread tap ?
