    this funky fx was caused by accident, i was drilling into the sides of the brass housing into the thick plactic lens and it caused this... if u look closlry u can see the side profile of the drill bit to the point.

    The steamy one is the best! I like the thin one a lot too. Just because it is a lightsaber, doesn't mean it has to be big and bulky. I would like to see the thin one in a brass finish. That would look cool. Great work!(y)thumbsup:thumbsup

    We used to have competitions here around making sabers from found parts and even dollar store items. You'd do well in one of those, not a bad start!

    There are a boat load of folks that exclusively buy their collections. Always nice to have a new member that builds. :thumbsup

    thanks for that, you should look into making your own, its a great feeling to know you have made something worthy to you and didnt cost £££££$$$$.

    i found the best way to start is:

    1 rotory tool with cutting discs and metal drill bits.

    2 chemical metal.

    3 seletion of tubing (i always look into dumps and skips as i walk past lol)

    4 metal odds and ends ie clips, jubilee clips things like that

    ...oh and 'O' rings lots of 'O' rings.

    I love 'em man, don't be too hard on yourself. Hardware sabers are always fun projects.
    It's also cool to see how you progressed from each one to the next. You can really see your skill level and creativity improving.
    Great job and welcome!

    and by the way...
    "4 metal odds and ends ie clips, jubilee clips things like that"
    the RPF term for this is "greeblies" :)

    I really like the ergonomic brass one with the happy accident on the front. It looks like it does something- it looks functional.

    Also the rough edges on most of the others look good. One of my problems with the sabers from the prequels was that they were too clean and sleek. They felt sterile to me.

    Nice work, and very inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

    Hey great work! I especially love the emitters you found, they look really industrial. Especially the gold emitter inside the beveled tube!

    I like the tonfa-inspired one. I could see somebody using a pair of those, in a battle. You should make a second one and display them as a pair.
