    Hello all,

    I am just about to finish my V2 and I have looked at a ton of pictures from here and some from the movie. I am trying to find out where the knob on the bottom of the saber should be located with the graflex clamp attached to the saber.

    If the clamp is at 12 o'clock, should the knob be at 4 o'clock? I have seen many different configurations and I am just looking for what is the correct position.

    Thanks to all that help.

    There is no correct position for the clamp in relation to the knob.

    From looking at the photos it seems as though the clamp (or rod) was knocked loose somehow and was constantly rotating.
    On my V2 I made two different holes in the handle, which allows me to set the anchor rod into two different positions . Basically I can rotate the clamp and lock into the two different positions seen in the V2 photos.

    Best bet is to look at the photos, and pick your favorite position.
