    I have an update! @halliwax invented an adapter. Thatís right, the Yuma shot, with the stunt blade that has a little thick spot above the nipple... may be an adapter.

    he lathed two diameters, the Internal diameter of the nipple and one slightly larger than the nipple. He then bored out the larger section to fit a (I think) 5/8Ē blade. Itís copper pipe and he lathed a little cylinder of aluminum to slide in the base for extra support. I started by superglueing this chunk inside, flush with the end.

    i then drilled and tapped 6/32 set screws. Theyíre tiny, maybe 1/8Ē long, but they look shorter. I drilled and tapped with the adapter empty so I could twist the tap through. Granted, I screwed up hole #2, so I decided to make it a triangular set-up instead of two set screws. I then took a dremel ball cutting bit and made dimples for each set screw, and a gouge for the lightsabers nipple screw. A gouge because with one dimple the adapter was tilting up and out of the nipple! This larger cut out prevents it from going up or down.

    before sticking the blade in, I squished JB quick weld into the adapter, and hammered it onto the end of the blade. Some JB squished out the incorrect extra hole and filled it.

    took a metal file and sandpaper and ground it flush. Also sanded the surface of the blade.

    When you guys can create such an elaborate stunt-rod ... a mere tri-ring would be no trouble at all to bend from 2.5 mm wire ... especially when it doesn't have to be completely symmetric or evenly angled in this wonky STAR WARS universe

    I nay do just that! The tape has been applied as well, its a littke sloppy around the socket but i had to slit and overlap the tape to get it to be flat. I may redo that section. In order to help the tape stck i did it perpendicularly to last time. 13-14 strips wrapped like a column, since the tape glue had stength that way. It tends to peel back when not in its original roll orientation. What do you guys think?
