sloth can i ask what type of leds are these? are they just your standard 5mm leds that you can pick up anywhere or are these special high output leds of some sort?
They're somewhat special.
Well, I am back after my long summer heat hiatus, and I am getting back into the swing of things in the garage. Been working on this saber and one for Darth FM, but this post is about the finished tailcap assembly. I needed a place to put a 1.3 mm recharge port, so I figured where better than in the tailcap access section.
CFLS installed with MicroSD card positioned in the slot. I had to do some creative machining on the inside of my card can to get the wires all passed through, but the layout works.
Shown here with R.I.C.E. USB Plug inserted and the 1.3mm recharge plug inserted. Also with the MicroSD card ejected to test for "grab-ability"
As always, my updates will range from one or two every few nights to "is sloth still alive?" Generally, yes, I am usually still alive, but with be doing two sabers at once, I can't guarantee the frequency of updates. So please forgive the updates in old threads, but it's how fast I go. Which is slow.
Thanks for looking!
