EL to LED Conversion
« on: July 07, 2016, 05:08:33 PM »
Greetings, this looks to be the right place for these questions. I have 2 "old" Parks sabers, 1 EL Double Helix, and 1 EL custom Darth Maul Double Blade. I would like to breath new life into these hilts, by either making them LED or string. I'm looking to try and get advice from someone that's done this kind of ancient tech rebuild before. The Maul saber I got from Parks in late 2001, and the Double Helix I got in '02. Thanks in advance to any and all that can help and point me in the right direction.

I purchased an Obi and I had planned on converting it over too, but I cannot get the emitter completely disassembled for the life of me. Parks conversions are a great idea but man, do they make you work for it.
