    The Black emitter and flat top are from a Speed Graphic flash held together with some tapped hex head screws I added...What do you see?
    Well, it looks like I'll have to keep an eye out for a Speed Graphic flash unit. I don't have anything concrete yet but just a rough image in my head with what to do with an emitter shroud like that. Frankly, that's all that's really piqued my interest. I'll figure out the rest if/once I get my hands on a Speed Graphic.

    I saw one once that was really expensive and didn't get it. Saw another in a lot once for dirt cheap, got it-- and it was honestly the cheapest piece of plastic crap. That bulb holder and square top were the coolest part. I need to make better use of it.

    These are a couple I made for my kids a few years ago. My son is left handed, so the dip switch controls are reversed. They are made from flashlights with parts from an old hard drive, a shower nozzle and bits I made.

    Hey @BipeFlyer ! So one is Forward + Forward + Forward + Backward + Forward + Backward + Backward + Backward = Fatatlity, and the other is Forward + Backward + Forward + Backward + Backward + Forward + Forward + Forward = Fatality? Or should we say Ignition?


    Do the dip switches actually have to be in that order for the lightsaber to ignite? That's a neat idea if they do! It'd make it a... "Jedi Masterlock".

    The blue dip switched lightsaber reminds me of Kylo Ren's Mask!

    Very neat gifts you made there!

    The kids picked them out from some old electronics I had. I kind of considered them as being blade adjustments for length, power, colour , test mode etc. The combination lock is a cool idea though, let's go with that.

    Holy crap!!! I can't believe how much Canon Y's and X's are going for on eBay right now... it's insane!

    Glad I got my X for $40... sheesh....

    Speaking of which... need an opinion from the masses... should I paint my Ingersoll-Rand grips or leave them unpainted like @AnubisGuard like I was originally planning to do?

    Unpainted, IMO.

    Hey @Edraven99 ! Did you see this one?....

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/HUGE-SET-of...AAAOSwQwZaU~Lo

    I'd forgotten about it, but it went for more than what I would have been able to pay.

    Heh... that was the auction that prompted me to post on here... I saw it when it was at $158 with two hours left and even then it was far too much money than I would have been willing to spend.
