Mandalorian Saber w/ added Crystal Chamber!!!!
« on: August 02, 2009, 04:53:05 PM »
After hours of painstaking work I am DONE! My thanks goes out to MH, Allaerra, Chewbacca (for not ripping my arms off) and Lonewind, all for putting up with my many questions!
Here is the run down:

Lux III Amber bin 6
Two 5mm white leds in chamber
1 magnifying lens from a led minlight.
1 amber lens cut from a light marker cut to fit in the crystal holder.
They both work to magnify the light.

1 amber crystal with the back of it defused (fake crystal but looks very nice)
1 brass thumb screw fastened to the heat sink
1 brass plumbing end cap.
quick connects on all leds.
One 5mm flashing red led in the pommel.
The chamber is vented to allow forward sound.

The chamber was cut by a high speed rotary tool. (like a dremel). The edges are polished so that the edges are smooth yet still crisp.
~~~ Phew~~~  I wired it once. Then I undid it. No quick connects made it very hard to disconnect it to adjust or replace anything. I wired it again.
Had a short. I wired it again! Third times a charm! 







Here's the video!

Thanks! I forgot to mention that the crystal lightly pulsates. I wired one led in with the red flashing led. It does not make it flash like the red one but makes it dim xxx the red on flashes. So it looks like power surging through it. It's a nice looking effect.

I'll mess with it to day to see if I can get a video. I don't know if I can hook my camcorder up to the computer. I'll check it out and see.
