Luke V2 MR
« on: March 05, 2009, 02:45:12 PM »


This is My first build with a Crystal Focus Saber Core.  Version is V3.

The MR Luke ROTJ Hilt was salvaged from a scrap pile in the shop, and had a Luke ESB clamp From the MRFX Luke ESB added.

The Cone knob hides the recharge port, and the saber is loaded with a7.2V @ 1800 mAh Lithium Ion pack (Parallel 2x2 LC14500)

The hilt was painted, weathered and the finish sealed with Matte Clear.

The Power and aux buttons are slightly hidden in the ends of the clamp.

DT,

This is a VERY nice V2...I like it a lot!  But what is the saber next to it?

It's an empty Heiland 3-cell...similar to the flash they used to make Vader's ANH saber.

BTW, great work DT. Is this an MHS with a Graflex clamp, or a converted MR?

Yeah it's an MR Luke ROTJ with an MR Luke ESB Clamp, TCSS Maul kit turned ROTJ kit, CF 3.0 and a Green Lux V.

Oops... ::) I've been doing that a lot recently.  :P

How did you get the clamp off the Luke ESB and onto the ROTJ?

First and only post of the evening here, and i all I can say is heh heh heh... I would guess he is poking fun at us. :D :D ;) DT and his secrets. ;D

Looks good DT. I like the mini tactiles on the control box too. Very clever. Very Sithy... Very... Well you all get my point. ;) :o 8)

hmph  >:(

Actually, I know how you got it on the Luke...
...I'm just curious which direction you pulled it off the ESB: from the grip end or the emitter end?
In other words, which way was least messy?  :D

Remove the grips, and then remove the screw on the clamp.  heat it with a heat gun to soften the glue, Gently pry the clamp apart so that the tabs are free of the holes in the side of the hilt and slide it off the grip end...

Hmm...heat gun. Ingenious!  8)
I knew they had a use other than for changing the blades on hockey sticks.  :D

Hey, would that heat gun trick work on other MR sabers as well? Like if I wanted to unscrew Obi-Wan's emitter, would the heat gun loosen that up as well?
