Some time back, we had a Custom Sonic screwdriver contest. Honestly, I thought I'd started a thread to show mine but after a search of threads created by me, I'm not finding it. Anyway. I was never 100% satisfied with how mine turned out. It was meant to be a sort of marriage of the older style and the new. I had used a lipstick thing I'd found, some aluminum tube, part of an ink pen, and a few hard drive parts to make it but as I said, I was never REALLY happy with it. This past weekend, I decided to get off of my butt and do something about it. Some time back, I had bought a "lens pen" with the intent of turning it into a sonic. Given the "marriage of old and new" theme I had in mind, this would be the perfect basis for my second iteration. I removed the upper assembly from the lipstick container and also ditched the tube aluminum. I mounted the ink pen section in the part of the "lens pen" that held the brush. On the reverse side, I attached the spare nub from a character options 9/10 sonic. The emitter, I took apart, adding some detail bits and spraying most of it with a red automotive paint. The body of the lens pen, I sprayed with rustoleum hammered brass and covered the extreme ends in aluminum tape. This was the result.
