Since I can never leave "well enough" alone, I decided to make some changes to mine.
Since I wanted a "reveal", I ditched the "canoe" and got some grey ABS from the hobby shop.
I also made a close approximation of the internal circuits. Not perfect, but I'm happy.
I also removed the raised ring on the pommel.

Excellent job with the internal circuit board. I have the same idea and have a bunch of old HDD boards left over from my crystal chamber days that I need to go through. Did you find a board like that it did you “kit bash” the circuits from multiple boards?

Tracking numbers went out to everyone who's saber has shipped. If you paid in this past week, your saber has not yet shipped, so there is no tracking number to send. I ship these out in lots approximately once a week. If you have a particular question to ask me, sending a personal message directly to me is a more productive form of communication then posting in this thread and hoping that I'll see it.

I have them and will include them with the next shipment that goes out as an option. They're a little thinner gauge then the chrome ones. So they should go in easier. They are black steel, and I think that some acetone will strip the black coating nicely, but haven't gotten a chance to experiment.

If anyone wants one as a replacement, you can send me a PM with your shipping address and I'll mail them out.

Question, what is the inner diameter of this whizbang? I thought I read some where one inch? I am looking for a chassis for my build
