Hey ladies and gentlemen, I have a question if you haven't read the title.

What are ways to make a good FX Saber Hilt?

For Saber Electronics, you need at least a clearance of around 1" to 1.25" of clearance inside the hilt. It can basically be a hole in the center. For my costume, I was thinking about making my very own Ahsoka Sabers! Now I know my direction, but I do not know the way.

I know you could use a lathe, which of course will take some training, trial and error, and also some practice. Some people use PVC, though it isn't durable at all. People at the fx-sabers forums say that Brushed Aluminum is the ideal material for a saber hilt you intend to duel with. I want to perform chorography with my outfit on in the late future.

What do you guys recommend I do about this?

Have you checked out thecustomsabershop.com? They have pre-made components that you can mix and match, both for the hilts and for the electronics. Very cool stuff!
