    Son of a...! Missed another one putting those rotten kids to bed.

    Beautiful work getting that bad boy cleaned up and everything turning once again, Dustin!

    GIANT PICTURE DUMP! (and it will be a double post since this will go into my own builds thread...)


    I can finally say this is finished! (Well unless I find a booster with a weld and clear exactra... I'll take those, heh)

    After my realtor threw out my exactra strip, I got a bit set back and then lazy about finishing after @mugatu hooked me up with a new one..

    So tonight I finally finished off the exactra and re-did my transistors to ones that looked better and matched. And that's it! It's finished.

    I also had did one of those cheap boxes for myself when I made one for my brother. Looks good to me.

    So thanks to @teecrooz for helping me get started on all this - the grenade auction that started this all was one of the more thrilling moments in my life, ha.
    @Edraven99 for the trades!
    @mugatu for hooking up the exactra.
    @Sym-Cha @Romansempire @Scuttjua @Jameskenobi for answering my queries as tried to find out all I could about this prop.

    Awesome work, Ellery! I especially love the box with the burlap, definitely looks like something we could have seen in Obi-Wan's hut.

    Here is something I've made a few weeks ago, the frame must be the first cage made from RE I guess, the rest are real camera and drill parts (don't remember correctly if the parts are out of a Kango drill from the Aliens Motion Tracker or from a camera for the Skywalker Binoculars built):

    It sits very solid and should be last an eternity. Hm, maybe I'm going to built this into the saber......

    Hey @Sym-Cha ! Do you have a photo of the grenade end of the rod without the "neck-piece" attached?
    I totally missed this inquiry ... sorry mate ... it only has a screw thread when the neck-piece is removed and it's a bit rounded ... as soon as I sort all the mess out in my house and find a vintage screw part in my dad's stash, I'll get back to putting this lightsaber together

    Yes welcome as well Cinistar.

    As Sym stated we may be able to assist with the search, except for the booster as that seems to be the hard part to find now and I have a few people Im already looking for...

    It's crazy that the booster has become just as hard to find as the balance pipe, now.

    I would 'like' this comment; except I really really don't. If, you take my meaning . ;-)

    Yup the tape one the clamp. Some one had shared a few pictures illustrating the pattern but they seem to have fallen victim to the Photobucket massacre.

    I based mine off of a saber scottjua did and can send you pics of mine if you want. Not sure how accurate it is but it looks good in my opinion.
