Hello !

After year, i decided to finish my solo hold v2 and i totally messed up…

- Wrong way for trooper trent stencils (i waiting for another batch)

- The emitter is blocked. I don’t know how to put it off safely. I screwed it and now it seems to be irreversible :( with my father, we took the emitter top off so we can see the heatsink and the steel piece that allow emitter to spin without succes…

Do you have some ideas ?

(I am sorry for my english)

Use a penetrating oil like WD-40 and allow it to sit… perhaps even soak the part in a container for some time (at least 2 hours up to a day) as there could be a burr or debris that seized the threading.

Then use rubber gloves for additional grip or a set of rubber pliers (for round objects) To prevent marring the surface.

Out of curiosity, did you use aluminum blackener or similar to darken the parts while it was assembled?

Hello,

thanks for your help, i will order some WD40.

Can you confirm that I can remove the transmitter without having to remove the top of it?

regarding the clamp, would this do the trick? in Nylon so as not to damage the aluminum?

to darken the saber, I tried the Halliwax method but I did not find the product in France. Just a like liquid but there was no effect on the material. So I had the idea of putting black paint and wiping it with a cloth, I thought that it would look good when painted with the stencils.

More like this:

When you tried the darkening solution, was the saber fully assembled? You had been able to deconstruct it before?

BRRogers, you are the man ! I finally put off the emitter thanks to the rubber plier !

If they are a standard size thread you might be able to at least partially repair them with new tap and die if he doesn’t have more of those parts to spare?
