I revisited a project from 6(?) years ago.

This is a very rare Peak Photo Products 3 cell flash. It's the only one that I've ever seen in the past 20+ years that is chrome plated and has a clear push button. I'm guessing it was a salesman's sample or perhaps these were made for store/window displays.

Anyway, it had Yodashouse ANH grips on it and I've been looking at it for years, not satisfied with the results.

I bought a set of the very nice ECO ESB grips from Roy, drilled/tapped 6 holes, and installed them this afternoon.

Now I'm happy with it.

So shiny! The circuit board is kinda rare, too. It has a bright gold plating. I don't remember who made it. I bought it in the early 2000s.

And a picture of it with another Peaksaber™ with the regular finish.

Don't let this flash go! It's beautiful, and I'm still kicking myself over losing a special flash years ago that I've never seen again.

I kind of want to make one of these with a luke windvane/emitter poking out the end.

It’s been a while since I have posted my customs. I believe I posted 2 a few years back but I’ve never stopped noodling my custom saber collection. I have a few rules I build each saber by:
They have to be found parts.
They have to be cheap.
They have to look like they have existed for years.
They have to pass “The Tool box test” as in, if I put one into a box of real tools would they look like they belonged there.
They have to look like different Jedi made them.
They have to evoke the OT, EU, ST design aesthetic. Overly clean and ornate prequel sabers don’t do it for me personally. Though you can see design ideas pulled from prequel sabers in my stuff, just covered in rust and grime.

These aren’t my only custom sabers, just the ones I liked the best in my collection. As in they match the rules I set out for myself. They made my cut.

If anyone is interested, I can breakdown the build and history of any individual piece above. But be warned it’ll be a list of vague garden hose parts, biscuit tin metal, torches and vacuum cleaner tubes.

Posting my previous customs really got my creative juices flowing. I ended up making four more over the last few weeks to add to my collection. 8 is probably my most “out there” design, the exposed wires don’t usually appeal to me but narratively I see it as a saber that has had panels taken off as if it’s has been refurbished. 11 is probably my most conventional saber. I was definitely attempting to evoke a graflex without straight up copying it.

Here is the Vader ESB saber! All I really need are the grips and it should be done (the only thing that’s not entirely accurate is the size because it’s only a 2-cell heiland but it was in great shape so I had to buy it. I think it’ll look really nice as a display piece with a plaque to go along with it. Also I do know the clamp isn’t the correct one but I feel like I could include some elements from the ROTS saber as well with some textured chrome tape around the clamp. The shroud and the black part on the clamp came a little worn but to me that is free “pre weathering” which means less work on my end
