    Great tutorial, indeed.

    But PoopaPapaPalps is correct and compared to your ESB blueprints you will notice that the Graflex head piece is assembled like the ANH style saber.

    I thought the first tutorial was great and somehow you made it better. Have you looked into recreating the Clamps? Specifically Vaders MPP? I'm trying to find one with no luck? I know Parks sells them, but as a relatively new RPFer, I've read they can be questionable...

    Parks is a matter of perspective ... he recently sold 6 complete replica MPP's and they were superb quality ... so the more you order the better his overall service ... or so it seems. MPP clamps are quite a handfull to recreate for just a few and it's a matter of costs versus demand to even start thinking about it. So for now Parks is your only hope :)

    jq sabers are based in Wales ... and Daren and his wife are parttime European lightsaber suppliers i.e. Parks and other parts ... great to deal with :)

    My hardware? You mean Roy's perhaps .. I don't sell anything ... just assist anyone wherever I can in regards to OT lightsaber whereabouts and vintage parts knowledge :)

    Re: Various OT lightsaber parts

    My first flash arrived today! After starting this project, I've become fascinated with these old flashes. Thinking about ordering your t-tracks, but should I wait to see if you come up with any of your own plans for Vader parts?
