Hey folks,

The guys at ifixit contacted me a week ago and asked if I would be willing to let them do a lightsaber tear down for May the 4th. I shipped them my sprlingloaded Obi Wan Kenobi ANH Crystal Chamber Reveal saber, and they went to town on it.

Thanks for letting me know via a facebook post ... I enjoyed that article ... I just figured those were your hands ... should have known they used a stand-in 'hand' model to take that lightsaber apart :)

Great build, and great article. But in which state did you get the lightsaber back? ;)
