    Hi

    I just thought I would post a link to my site, I will be updating the site with more pics tonight and possibly a tutorial of how I put them together down the track.

    I made these sabers over the weekend.

    The one that isn't complete is base on kyle Katarns saber, I will post more progress pic's as it comes along. It just needs the activation bar and box and a little painting up.

    These where all made using a hack saw, drill, Files, Sandpaper and a lot of elbow grease.

    Well I hope you like, here goes.

    Thanks Primrodo :D

    I hadnt actually given it much thought I have quite a few friends putting the hands up atm, but who know's some where down the track I might make a few up and see how they go on the junkyard.

    I have just been doing it for the Fun of making them at the moment. :D

    That is how Real Men™ build lightsabers. :D
    How did you make the cuts straight?

    I like the designs. Very elegant and fitting with the canon sabers. Good job. :thumbsup

    :lol Thanks Darth lars

    I went out and spend $20 on a die cast mitre saw, It has a 45 degree swivel table and the handsaw is attached to guides. Its used for skirting boards and such, It will also cut through aluminium. :D

    The next sabers I want to make are the Quinlan Vos saber that was floating around in here not long ago, and a Graflex or too. Maybe Vaders ROTJ and Lukes ANH.

    Cheers Defleshjedi. :D

    They are all Aluminium, No pvc.
    The Quinlan Vos saber is one of my favourites, I really like that saber. It will probably be one of the next sabers on my list, If you have any pics I would love to see em.

    Give me a bit of time to up date my site and I will have tutorials on both sabers, as well as a few pic's of my workshop set up. None of them were all that hard to put together.
