Special thanks and credits to Judge Sabersmith for helping on the design of this one. When I started the project, I had no CF
in hands (that happens, believe me) and I decided to make a saber with "what I had in the fridge".
I found out that the MR
616 joe jedi could be a nice base for the starkiller, especially since I finally saw no reason to keep it in my saber collection.. Problem, I didn't want to get many overlays when using it as the main tube (JSS used a 1.25" one), so I chose to carv it to do the little grooves and rings.
Second problem, there are those $*ù^ lining grooves for the changeable shrouds, clamps and grip sections. I filled them with some good aluminium added epoxy from loctite, I wasn't sure JBWELD will stick properly.
So far so good. I "opened" the crystal chamber with the mill.
For the blade holder, I had a old anakin conversion kit. But I had to shorten it
This project will be great to test the copper PC
I bought from PCBTP.
