View attachment 1508875I don’t seem to have much saved other than pictures etc. I’m not sure what all was discussed now, but there was planning etc for the Barbican.
I can’t give proper credits for photos so if anyone has objections let me know.
Beautiful machining job! I really like these ideas - I also agree it should be flat. You nailed the pommel with the bit hole in it, I think that looks super accurate. I'm 90% sure the extra center flange is an insert held into that big hole with a black domed bolt and a loose washer. The extra part is a different colored metal!View attachment 1508875

I think the bottom of the Barbican should have no bevel and it should be completely flat. I drew the bottom of multiple structures and 3D printed them all and the result made me think it was completely flat. Then I made the metal iron end on the lathe. The result is good, but the lathe cutter limit, can not dive deep enough groove. It's a shame, but I'm feeling good, though not exactly right.
Barbican Lightsaber I made it on 40MM aluminum tube, the thin wall of the shroud is 6MM thick.

Thanks for telling me the correct source Tom ！！！ I just found it！！！
I'll try and keep looking.It seems like the dimple is a manufacturing artifact that seems to be on top of a drive insert in the cap
View attachment 1510061I have a new theory - we already have the switch and wire holes (opposing sides whereas on the luke they are on the same side) but what if the double holes here weren't a mistake...
could that third one be the set screw for the pommel? The other two appear to be holes from the grip screws that used to be there
