#48: just because you finally got a cf, doesn't mean you can wire it. If you don't have the skill and the tools, don't touch that board with you iron. Skill meams either soldering is a job or hobby of yours (small soldering like on the cf) or you have successfully build a few sabers, and one of them being a petit crouton (the best practice for a cf imo).
#49: if you break a cf, first, get it fixed, then determine what caused the break. If it had to do with your soldering, practice some more. If it was your mounting, make a new chassis setup.
#50: just because it is cheaper to build your own saber does not mean that it is the better option. If you don't have experience and don't want to make a bunch of "practice" sabers (more specifically practice leading up to a cf saber), then you should not make your own saber. There are exceptions to this rule, but they are few. If you don't have the experience, send the cf to a smith for install into an awesome saber.
#51: there are a bunch of different chassis setups, and they aren't all that hard to do. A lot of people have been posting saying they have no idea there is a way to mount the electronics. A few are pvc chassis setuos like madcow does, t8 flourescent light tube protector, saberworks RCS, and chassis disk and rod setuos.
