    Hey yawl

    I've been searching to no avail, did anyone ever dig up how the floor effects people in star wars ESB and ROTJ anchored the stunt blades inside a graflex or tube saber prop? (Barbicon, pipe "graflexes", Shared Stunt, V2, any fake MPPs)

    Thanks!

    I think the graflex sabers used screws that were hidden by the red button. i know I've seen others do it that way.

    I could see counter-sunk screws like these and the ROTJ Vader saber...the red button's threads are very small

    Still, non-graflex sabers I remember reading ideas of a tube filled with resin or something? I just don't see large screws enough to anchor a blade for whacking on most of these props..
