The New and Improved FX-SABERS Graflex
Crystal Core Saber Chassis.http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa60/FX-SABERS/Graflex%20FXSabers%202009/ChassisNew4.jpg
Some highlights about the improved chassis.
One Size Fit's ALL (soundboards)
Designed for use with PLecter Labs CF4 (micro SD) Ultrasound, MR etc...
A Large foot print to fit your soundboard and easy access to micro SDs.
Easier Do it your self assembly!
Previously the chassis had to be pre-assembled because there was a lot of gluing to be done. :-
Now... 90 percent of the new chassis all screws together and very little gluing is involved. :)Parts that do need to be glued are notched and interlock for accurate placement and improved
Improved and Functional Aesthetics.
The Chassis has evolved and is more than just a round disk.
All the various segments of the chassis have been cut and give shape to accentuate and copliment
the components being housed in it.
Starting with conveniently placed wire pass holes and additional mounts for LEDs in the upper chassis
for additional inner illumination and channels for fiber optic lines.
New Cycling field energizers Detail with slide switch mounting supports.
The Outer edge of the disks around the crystal chamber have a cogged shape to them.
The New Shaped Power gates add strength and have detailed channel supports for the focusing crystal.
A New Full Synthetic Crystal Set-up comes standard with DIY kits.(Quartz Crystals will Still be Optional in Completed FX-SABERS Graflex Systems)
New Primary Crystal Gasket is aesthetic and functional sealing in the bottom Crystal LED and the Complimenting
top plate half gaskets function as strengthening supports and add visual detail.
The battery supports have a New defining shape and are spaced for easier battery access.
The Cogged outer disk rim continues again down at the speaker housing which features the engraved
Aluminum and Brass Hardware and Stainless Steel Hex Head screws.

The First run of chassis is being cut and they will be made available through the Graflex Armory On-Line Store
once it Goes Live with in the next few weeks.
FX-SABERS will carry the DIY chassis in Copper and Nickel Plate finishes.
I will be making Chassis for TCSS to Carry in the Gold Plate ( and possibly silver) Finish.
Here are some Samples of the systems that have the New Chassis and Quartz Crystals.
Ultrasound System with Synthetic and Quartz Crystal Chamber.
Crystal Focus 4.0 System with custom Quartz Crystal Chamber
I will post here in the forums to let everyone know once they are up and in the store 8)
The New Chassis will Cost Approximately $225.00
More details about items/parts included will be in the store with the description once it is available.

Now let us take a walk down memory lane and how it got to this point... :D
The Evolution Prototypes of the FX-SABERS Graflex Chassis. 8)
First the MR battery, MR chassis 3watt Luxeon systems. And the First Ultrasound 5 watt system.
These feature the original Chassis rotating self powered crystal chamber.
Next we see the Progression to the Ultrasound 5watt Luxeon systems and Crystal Focus Systems
using a combination of Synthetic and Quartz Crystals.
Chassis at this point were sound board specific.
Then came the CF systems utilizing Full Quartz crystal chambers and multiple LED illumination.
Finally the New chassis features improved styling and function that can accommodate most any sound board with
provisions for full synthetic or full organic (quartz) crystal chambers etc...
