i meant the thicker shroud material like the aluminum stuff he has. for something, well; MORE. lol

heck.. mhs parts in brass would be a nice option too. ;)

I'd love a male female 3" extension.  That would be perfect for the Graflex BH.


couldn't you just use this: http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/3-Double-female-threaded-connector-P122.aspx
plus this: http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Gender-Changer-P132.aspx

Yes you could.  I chose this route instead.

http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Double-ended-male-threaded-connector-style-1-P127.aspx

The problem is the switch box sits over the threads and you end up drilling through the threads to mount the box and make holes for the wires.  This chews up the threads requiring either time to clean them out to make them work again which may or may not work or you simply JB weld the double male coupler in place.   The male female setup would be much better IMHO.

Of course Id rather see the Graflex BH with a 3" extension all in one piece to get rid of the seam.   ;D

Yes the thicker shroud material in brass would be a nice addition and so would similarly thick shroud material in copper [I looove copper] or bronze. Even mild steel could be nice because one could use gun-bluing or even colour case hardening for a cool multicolour mottling effect.

Speaking of copper...because of cost I wouldnt expect major MHS parts in copper but some small 'accent' parts like copper Trim rings, Covertec wheels, D-rings, screws, thumbscrews, MPS pommel inserts or copper-and-black activation box/clamp cards would be very nice for us 'copperheads'...as would be a copper plated AV switch similar to the nickel or gold plated ones, if anyone makes that.

But I don't want to seem ungrateful 'wishing' for new parts so soon after Strydur has added quite a few awesome new ones recently...so Thank You for those [esp pommel #3] and I'm sure more great things will come in due time.

I thought of something i think would be great in some situations, and have done it with a project of mine. The newer heat sink assembly (the big brass screw in part) should have 3 pre drilled or even tapped holes that match up with the inner most holes of their chassis disks. This could be very use full to those of us that unscrew the back 1/2 of our sabers to get into the guts. Unscrew the emitter assembly and the rest comes out with it. just my thought on a part modification.

I like how you think.  I wish Tim made it too.  I am currenty doing just that.  ;). I'm actually grinding the nub off and connecting the hats left of the HS to my disks and rods so the entire insides come out in one piece.  All I'll do is unscrew the grip section and the entire interior will slide right out.

Wish list product:

The small (white?) 4 wire quick connectors Makoto uses. They have male and female sides to the connectors and 4 wires coming out each end.

They are much smaller than what is currently offered on TCSS. Right now TCSS has some multi-colored wire 4 prong connectors but I'm looking for these smaller ones.
If anyone owns a Makoto saber they will know what I'm talking about.


I would buy a bunch I think they are handy.

the ability to build a chassis in the MHS builder and add it to the saber build.

also some delrin and acrylic disks specifically designed for building crystal chambers. maybe 2 or 3 different types just for variety but yet keep to a standard.

then someone could plan out an entire saber including chassis w/crystal chamber right in the MHS builder.

I second the chassis/chamber idea. I'm not sure it would be possible or even feasible but I'd dig it.

Is there such a thing as a MHS end cap?

Like just a screw on cap that would go on the male side and just be a solid cap?

I can't find this if it is on the site. If it doesn't exist, .... please add this to the wish list!

Thank you :)

How about a sidious style emmiter and blade holder for mhs hilts? Like a piece similar to the front of the Senate, the Do-Clo LE and the Altus Ferrum. Hehe guess I'll just keep wishin and make my own from a blank. :P

"proper" thin-neck sections for luke rotj and obiwans

I second that notion mentioned by the ninja with the flaming skull for a face. Heck, I'd settle for anything between 3/4"-7/8", maybe just maybe 15/16" or 29/32" for deep 7/8" ID blade socket... perfect for breaking stuff... but not this nice thin(-ish) neck! 8)

Has it been considered to sell resistors pre-wired into a MWS harness or LED module?  Then you really wouldn't need to do any soldering at all.

As a way to hold a chassis in place, I made a disc to slide on the 4-40 rods.  It's about 3/8" thick, so it can take a set screw.  I think the idea would be a helpful addition to the store.  If I were to do it again, I'd keep it fully round, and thin everywhere except those three points.
