Wonderful job.

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

So far so good, I've ran through a battery pack already with it and it seems to be holding up. The hilt pieces are a little hard to see in the pictures, but the body is 3 separate pieces of Poly-C, and it's pretty thick, so I doubt it will warp. It's surprisingly rugged.

The heat sink is a TCSS heat sink and it works great. I have yet to "feel" any heat on the outside of the hilt, and I ran it for quite a while yesterday.

Time will tell though, ....but I think it'll be OK.

You really have some stretchy envelopes to be pushing them this far!!

Very nice, guys. Well done.

I can't believe you found poly-C screws... :D

I've been using polycarbonate screws for years. I used to use them on my first generation of EL blades I started making back in 2003.

You can find them at McMaster.com.

That is a very nice build. See-through sabers are ridiculously rare. Great job on yours! Now what would be REALLY cool is if you made a metal version of this and displayed the two side by side.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm...........that gives me an idea  ;D
