Anyone know what is the threaded rod size? I've looked but can't see it.

4-40

Because all the screws are standard/imperial.  Not sure what screw you are trying to loosen or tighten.  I don't have the hardware list in front of me, but I think most hardware was under 4-40.  So going to need some small wrenches.  Off hand, I would say you will likely need .050", 1/16", 5/64", 3/32" and possibly a 7/64".  I will look for the hardware tomorrow and get you a more definitive answer then.

That's cool. I haven't tried all of the screws yet but I tried the first screw on the control box and the blade retention screw and none of my metric ones fit.  :embarrassed:

Thanks

Anyone who has built one of these up - did you find the display/hero insert was impossible to insert? I can't tell whether its because the LED lens is creating a vacuum or something else?

I have a request I've been looking high and low for one of these sabers to no avail  :cry: as usual I was a day late and a dollar short when this run was going on lol is there anyone out there that may have purchased more than one that could help me out I've posted on every forum I could think of reached out to anyone I thought might have one they would part with and search eBay almost every day trying to get lucky. I haven't tried this yet though and figured it wouldn't hurt to ask thanks

I am holding out hope for another run of these in the next year or two.
