'Beat me to it. 'Looks far better in real life, I must say! Those pics really make me want to get home so I can get back to work on the ol' bench!

Keep up the inspiring innovations, DC!

Thanks guys,

The grip section is made up of those small little "bumps" to stop cabinet doors from slamming, "gee, I need those lil' things actually".
Anyways, they are coming off and we'll have something pretty different for the grips coming soon.
I'm also still looking for a clear button, so any ideas would be great.

'Looks far better in real life, I must say! Those pics really make me want to get home so I can get back to work on the ol' bench!

Yes sir it does. It is hard to get the camera to pick up the details of the emitter and the little nuances of glow and reflection that the smaller LEDs put out across the saber. It's pretty cool.

Hey Guys, that is sweet!  We've been wanting to do a see-through saber, but never have found the time.  Excellent execution, I like the acryllic crystal and it's placement, as well as how you designed the emitter!  Very, very nice!  That should be a great piece to bring to the convention!

This would be the third...

Corbin made his MANY years ago.  I don't know how that saber is doing.

I did mine two years ago.  It mysteriously just up and died so I disassembled it.  It's been in parts ever since.  I'm not sure when if ever it will get rebuilt.  Honestly it's cool, but showing it off was the most annoying thing ever.  Everyone has to put their stupid two cents in, "Why don't you put some grips here".  IT'S CLEAR, THAT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE IF YOU CAN SEE LESS.

I have swung the other way though... if I ever go back to the project it will have the wiring hidden.  No matter how good you are at soldering it's unsightly.  I like to look at it as more of a functional cut-away vs. a see how it works saber.

Definitely a showpiece boys! Or better...something to take to a Rave ;D hehe

Really though, it's perfect for a functional display piece at a con. Pity SDCC is off the list. Would have been awesome to have at an FX-Sabers.com table if there ever was one... Innovative and the use of different materials just goes to show you can make a functional lightsaber using more materials than we think ;) Hope to see more of these in the future :)

Wonderful job.

Are there any concerns with warping, either through heat or just gravity?
