Hey guys. I just stumbled across an image I hadn't seen before whilst on my travels around the internet...

Rare-LFL-Lucasfilm-Archives-Movie-Prop-Lost-Photos-Star-Wars-Indiana-Jones-Historic-Visit-Orig...jpg

*Image belongs to Original Prop Blog

The Hero's there, near the front, and the V3 over to the right... What's the deal with the 3rd metal hilt (with bare aluminium wind vane)??

Has this ever been discussed before? It appears to have a gold neck and tri-ring. It's got me scratching my head a little! o_O

Sorry for the delay; this is a bench test.
3V power (two watch batteries)
SPST > SPDT snap action > blinking red/green scale train signal light LEDs > common negative to power.

I’m not saying this is THE setup; in fact it’s pretty messy (relative to another member who is also working on this)

I’m trying to figure out how to alter the timing parameters on these LEDs because (unlike their data sheet implies) they haven’t been speeding up or slowing down with voltage variance. A simple IC is built in on these; so considering built in IC, no resistor necessary, and only 3V required i think they could all certainly fit inside the box: and at MOST require a milled area in between the mounting screws for the 3V battery to sit.
These particular LEDs can take 14V unresisted...

I still need to assemble my photos for the other issue in question thd9791

Is this something you'd consider making and selling as kits for people wanting to do this?
