With this run getting close to being fully completed I'm staring to wonder what Dave's next project might be :)
Well, it's funny you should say that.... There might be an interest thread going up in the not too distant future.... :D

Did this one up ROTJ style for my friend Jesse at Kyberphonic Fonts! He provided a vintage clamp, knob, and boot stud! The vintage parts really makes dave’s kit feel so “in universe”! Great bit of kit!

Dave- any updates on this more in-depth V2 tutorial post?
Hey Drew.

Yeah, sorry for the delay. Batch 02 is VERY close to being finished, and I've been documenting things as I go. As soon as they're finished, I'll get the update/tutorial posted. (y)

Hope that's ok.

I'm not the fastest when it comes to typing things out, so I need to find a suitable gap in the work to sit down and put it all in to words.

If there's anything specific that isn't explained in the earlier post, please feel free to fire me a DM and I'll try to explain things in more detail.

I realise the stencils aren't as straight forward as they could have been and require a bit of working out when it comes to weeding out the correct parts. It was a choice between lower quality, printable vinyl and the one that I went with, which can't be printed unfortunately. So, it does mean that the stencil guide, and the 360 video need to be referenced closely to avoid any mistakes. I'll go in to much more detail soon (with pictures). (y)

Cheers,

Dave

Just got my Obi Stunt commission. Looks and feels amazing. A question for those who have received theirs, how do you get it powered on? I loaded mine up with fresh AA batteries, but nothing.

There’s a switch on the box that holds the batteries as well as the red switch on the saber.

I had the same problem but Dave explained that he had tightened the grub screws on the nipple for transport. I loosened those and we were all good.

Just sent you a DM Scott, but figured I'd reply here too for anyone else having problems:

The nipple grub screws are locked to protect the mechanism when pushing the blade on (and for transit) When these are loosened the rod/blade should spin easily. If the blade is pushed on too tight, this can stop the rod from spinning too.there should be a small gap between the blade and the nipple face.

It's also worth checking the connections on the Anderson connectors. They should all be hooked over fully like this:

If one of these has slipped off, the cover can be slid back and the connector can be pushed back in with an electrical screwdriver.

Other things to check are connecting directly to the power pack (to check there isn't a fault with the lead).

Checking all combinations of the two switches.

And finally trying brand new batteries.

Hopefully one of the above should fix any problems that are encountered. If not, please do get in touch!

All the best,

Dave
