First, no more working on your pool table Tarkin :D

Second you'll need to make a sleeve to hold it in place up in the holder so it butts against
the bottom of where the blade will stop.

Using a TCSS heat sink like this:

You'll be able to fit this either with a reflective lens or Luxeon lens ;)

O.K. I have had my ANH for a couple days now. I....I..... need to take this......apart! So, quick question, I assume the red button itself the "hemisphere" are glued into thier respective holders? They must be pryed out to reveal the screws underneath?

Actually, This saber is VERY nice once you get it apart.

The Button mounting rings are actually metal! A nice touch!

The Creaky blade? well there is an easy explanation for it...

Most MR sabers (Luke ROTJ and Mace Windu Excluded) have TWO blade retention pins running completely through the blade holder.  The Luke ANH only has one.

I did notice that there are a couple of pieces of foam attached to the blade holder, so without those in there, that thing must creak even WORSE than before!  ::)

Another thing that I noticed when taking this saber apart, is that the clamp lever COULD be utilized for an AUXILIARY switch activator with a small amount of modification.

When you turn over the side bar with the lever attched to it, you will see a small post that is holing it firmly in place.  If one were to dremel that post out, the Lever WILL swing! ;)

This leaves a nice little mounting hole for a low profile tactile switch...  I don't think much more needs to be said here, other than: A CF WOULD WORK NICELY IN THIS HILT!  8)

Add a custom blade holder to this shell and you have the beginnings of a VERY awesome CF conversion, with a little tweaking...

There is a ton of room inside this saber once all of the MR guts have been removed.  *Hint Hint Hint* (You reading me here Ben Kenobi? ;D )

I have a LUKE ANH converted to Luxeon by Ultra that i would like to change the Luxeon color in.

Does anyone know how hot do i have to heat the blade holder for the glue to be removed, without melting down the whole thing ?  ;D

Second question is, is there someone (TCSS ?) that makes custom blade holder that would fit in if i ever want to replace the plastic thing

I did a tri-rebel upgrade to this one a few months ago. With a new 1" blade and cellophane.

I'm having trouble getting the blade holder to slide off.
I removed the pin and I don't see any thing else I can unscrew or punch out.
