    i dont think vintage clamps are brass? i thought they were all steel? hence the replicas today are steel? i could be completely wrong
    Dur, yeah your right the clamp isnt brass like the body is, forgot.

    The Launch Bays in Florida and Cali already had Graflex based sabers. I don't know if we've seen what the other parks have. I suggested elsewhere that they could have even bought 2.0s to put on their Luke or Rey characters to walk around the park... or it could be for the busted one.

    I went through my pics from the second viewing.....This one clearly shows the emitter holes and relative blade diameter.

    I've been finishing up a 3d model with a mix of measurements from the v3 and the hero. Will post pictures soon. Is it just me or does the neck look a little shorter too?

    I don't know that the neck is shorter, I think the bottom most piece of the emitter is a lot thicker, more like the V3 than the hero.

    I used mixes of measurements from the v3 and the hero, like the neck and card from c3, and others from the hero.
    Now that I had pictures I was able to go back and fix it

    I also tweaked the color of the brown/copper cuz I felt like it.
    Any feedback for improvement would be nice!

    New update! I’m designing the parts now to have threading so I can get it machined and ready for installing electronics, but does anyone know a good lightsaber machining company? I found a few aluminum machining but I don’t know the quality of their work.

    Hey @halliwax ! There is definitely something wonky with that Glass Eye at 2:18. Put it in 1080p and frame by frame it, the thing is half out of the flash!

    We were looking at that in another thread. It seems like whatever they are using as a bulb holder for their stunts keeps it from going in all the way. Some people even won der if the eye is acting as a retention screw.

    i dont remember what thread we were talking in, but we believe they are using the glass eye as a blade holder. at first we got the blurry shots from the bootleg, and knowing a graflex 2.0 was used as the blown up saber, and rumors that there is another 2.0 used on screen somewhere i was hoping this was it! but i was wrong

    the search continues...

    there is also another behind the scenes video, with them talking about the aliens shoes and dresses, there is also a cross guard reveal on the table, in the back ground you can see a graflex with weird wavey grips and the same protruding glass eye... weird

    Can you give me a time stamp? Youtube never plays smoothly for me and it jogs around a lot skipping loads of scenes. Oddly it makes for perfect pause play clicks for frame by frame viewing!

    I did see in the next segment (2:28) that Luke is holding the connected grip rubber Graflex.

    The grips look rubbery to me.. they are all different shapes near the rivets, like the rivets have pinched them out of shape..

    I remember! This was just the first time I was in control of my viewing experience in 1080p and had the ability to frame by frame it on my own.

    I had a brushed up TGS glass eye sitting in my draw for awhile. I had it fall out of the lathe destroying it. I cut down more of the glass eye knurling trying to match was we see, what do you guys think? Shave off some more?

    I wouldn't go too much further until there are some definitive photos of the prop.

    Then you totally need to drill out wee little holes around the bottom of the Glass Eye, through the backside of the brass around the screw and through the brass to the backside of the lense!

    Let a little light through it like some of the fancy custom saber builders do.
