    Let's just say the photos didn't have anything in them for scale...
    Was the gigantic flashbulb not a giveaway?

    Very funny, and nicely done

    It was disassembled in the pics. Even still, I've seen some big bulbs!

    That's like a lightsaber pocket knife. It makes a good training lightsaber though.

    Hey DC, haven't seen you round here for a while. Glad to see this little beauty. This is the work of a master Sabersmith.

    Thank you sir! I can't accept the master title yet. Perhaps when 900 yrs I become.

    Hey, sorry I'm going to be polluting a tiny bit, I hope this is ok, but that was too funny for me not to tell.
    So, 90% of the time, my girlfriend is all about the "you are buying too much stuff" etc etc, but sometimes, she's like "how much time would it take for you to build Rey's blaster for my cosplay", or, like tonight when she opened our new vacuum cleaner and said, wow, give me a piece of graflex, that would do such a nice lightsaber, takes the Quasimodo helmet and poses with said custom lightsaber...

    I made this recently as a wedding gift. Just some Aluminium tubes of various diameter and other greeblies, blue Cree XPE LED, made to fit a 1 inch blade.
    It's saltwater etched with the Bride and Groom's names (Sophie and Erik) in Aurabesh and the date of their wedding. The pommel is just the spindle taken from the inside of an old Hard Drive and fastened straight onto a 3d printed chassis which is held in place by the rear thumb screw.

    Hi all. Have this in another thread but decided to have it here as well. It's my old school hardware saber. Built from mostly hardware store parts. Still working g on it. Making a simulated clamp lever and side bars. Tried making a custom but it's looking like a cross between obi wan and Luke's rotj saber. Opinions?Click image for larger version.

    I'd love to know exactly what goes into the emitter end. Very cool.

    The emitter end is just aluminum and copper tubingtelescoped inside the different sized pipes. The outer is 1 and 1/2 inch aluminum with a large fender washer on top. I have a shaft collar at the very top. The emitter and widvane(roller bearing) are all connected together and can be removed as one peice.a threaded rod runs through the whole thing.
