    I'm getting myself in a muddle now. These two are different sabers right? The top one looks like it has tape for the booster section which is holding the pommel to the main body, whereas the second pic looks to have a solid metal booster. Am i right? So which one of these has the switch as they both look like they have wires connected to them?

    The retention nut from the switch threads onto the cone knob.

    However, the switch is having a hard time matching up perfectly with the thicker amount of threads that are on the lightsaber body.

    Granted, I'm not really giving it a 100% try, as I don't have the new saber body yet, & I'd like to keep this one in as good a shape as possible... until the new one arrives.

    I think Dan's cone knob is 1/4 20 so it may be coarse vs fine thread?

    looks good though, was that a scrounged part?

    Good point, I'll have to see if I have any other reference pictures that are useful. I get confused between the two Obi ANH stunts, I might have filed my pictures wrong.
    No worries. There always seems to be some confusion over which hilt is which whenever I've seen this discussed. When there's clear evidence like the long lever visible it's easy but other times not so much.

    I *think* these are 2 different hilts. The top one being the v3 and the bottom the V2.

    Here is another shot that shows the gunmetal, bronze, and black, with the clamp in position.

    Whoa, nice switch! Got any more around you'd be willing to part with?

    I found it on eBay searching for "on/off toggle switch". I would've bought multiples,to sell later, however, not knowing if they were correct, I only got the one.

    I almost want to say I don't see the long lever (which would be on the right or top side of the clamp)

    this could be the shared stunt, seeing as the clamp on the v2 seemed to stay put.
