Howdy saberland.



Some of you might remember this saber, it's the ANH Obi thin neck that I built as my very first light up saber.  Well, as I wrapped up my Obi Epic Reveal saber, I realized I didn't need TWO obi ANH sabers, so I floated the idea around about selling my first one, and Cordaroyfog was kind enough to give this one a good home.

Unfortunately, when I brought it down out of its loft in the slothcave, I realized it was, well, not great.  I couldn't very well sell this thing to anyone and feel confident enough to put my name on it.

So with Lee's patience and a steadfast determination to provide an excellent product, I set out to completely rebuild the saber.  From stem to stern, every piece has gotten an update.

Original specs:
84 Makoto V2 LED string
MR Yoda board
4x AAA NiMH Battery pack
TCSS Speaker
Russrep grenade, windvane, emitter
Parks booster & clamp
Romans Pommel
Rebelscum bubblestrip
Recharge port hidden under rear transistor greeble

New Specs:
84 High output blue outdoor sign LEDs wired seriallel
Plecter Labs CF-LS
2x 14650 Li-Ion pack
R.I.C.E. port hidden under forward transistor greeble, with custom machined transistor port plug
Recharge port hidden under rear transistor greeble, with TCSS small killkey
SD Card access through custom machined rear tailcap
TCSS Speaker
Russrep grenade, windvane, emitter
Parks booster & clamp
Romans Pommel
Rebelscum bubblestrip
Custom machined internal frame
Weeks and weeks and weeks of thought, design, machining, testing and assembly.

I have a special magnetic wallmount stand planned for it, but will complete it after this.  He also gets all the design sketches.

I want to say a special thank you to Erv' at Plecter Labs for such a wonderful product, and supporting me and others in this hobby with the absolute best board available, period.

wow sloth, just wow.  8)

I may have missed it (though I read the specs 4 times to be sure) but what is the part sticking out of the long slot in the graflex clamp?
