Very cool saber Erv!  And the PLI/keychain is a great addition, very inventive.

Cristar Attevan - You asked about the buttons Erv used on this saber ... I just found some similar momentary buttons at my local Radio Shack.  It was a surprise to me because usually they don't have a good selection of momentary buttons ... but I think these are new.  here are a couple of pics:

yep those are very similar in shape and size, I'm just guessing they're not waterproof but they will for sure do the job. Those I found were just tested once, when I saw them in the farnell catalog, then what I love so much is the fact you press with the the finger tip "pulp" until the switch is really going, it's a very "tactile" feeling, since you don't have any "button" per se. Maybe I sell those in a close future !
but for now, back to the drawing table, I have a CF V4 to design

Alright kids... I have one thing to ask you all as a personal favor... Lay off a little about the CF already? Please?

I'm thinking Erv feels crummy enough about it as it is...the poor man... He's a great guy and spends god knows how long working on the boards just to see them be horded by buyers and others complain and keep hinting... He knows how much we REALLY want a CF board...but we just need to be patient and wait a little more quietly, okiday?

Thanks!

It's just getting a wee little on my nerves...

Ok Mods...you can have your soapbox back! And Erv... I graciously return your thread back to you, my friend :)

Erv I may have you make my persional saber for me.

I love it bladeholder down, Iam not to sure about that style bladeholder yet.

I merely meant it as a compliment is all LS, I just admire the work he is capable of and chooses to do for us. I really do respect that he takes the time to even bother with us he could just have this as his own personal thing and watch as we all drool but Erv is nice enough to share! :) I may be waiting for awhile as it is anyway, as I don't have the first clue as to how to obtain one of his masterpieces.

thanks folks !
I'll be honnest and as transparent as possible about the custom saber orders / request.
In the past, when CF was selling "normally", I had time for that, and I was taking like 5 orders from times to times. The 4 sith sabers pictured in my gallery (well, only a trio is there since one has been shipped early) are part of that.
Then with my daughter + GF + CF sales increasing I had to stop the custom sabers and even on the 2 people that were remaining on my list since.... hu... september  :o I finally cancelled one and kept this one. So... it's been like 6 month to gather a bit of time to get this thing finished. So... between CF / electronic props boards and custom sabers I had to choose.
Once I'll be installed in a new house, I target 1-3 sabers a year.
How to be on the list is a real problem. Most of the time I talked with people and liking his project I said ok, I'm going to make that one for you. I have to like the project. I'm not making "simple sabers". I don't like to say that I'll be "wasting my time", but I know I can do nice things, so I won't make 20 "simple sabers" I prefer to make 1 like telum infensus.
Limited ressources lead to time bargain  ::)

thanks for all your feedback and compliments, all taken !

they are just momentary switches, they have 2 lateral leads / pins on which you solder some wire. As for installation in the saber, that's the "problem", you need to recess a square area in the saber to fit them. And then dremmel is your friend....
