Help, looking for specs on his first light saber. Trying to build one from scratch with extra special effects for cos play this fall.
A decade or so ago, someone here got access to get over the Anakin AOTC lightsaber with calipers at an exhibition... I'm sorry I don't remember who it was.
These pictures with measurements were posted then and have been reposted a few times throughout the years:

I once built a hybrid of the Anakin AOTC and the Anakin ROTS/Skywalker saber. I got aluminium tubes in dimensions where the inner diameter of the larger tube fit the outer diameter of a smaller tube. I did it all by hand and with a Dremel. The tubes did not fit perfectly so I sometimes put the larger tube part in the oven and the smaller in the freezer and hammered them together with force.
I made the black plastic part on the emitter shroud from black Sculpey.
You can find various lightsaber parts such as black T-track, LEDs, LED holders, blade parts, thumbscrews etc over at TheCustomSaberShop.com.
