Ok So I'm concittering getting the kit fisto saber I found it for a resionable price on amazon. Now I won't be using any of the guts, I plan on fitting it with a spark And the z6 so I can make use of all the blinkies And not have to make extra holes in a saber . No what I'm wondering is of those of you that have done a simalar conversion what are some things to watch out for.
From what I've seen ofbothers conversions using the pc and cf boards and the tcss conversion kit.witch apears to be not mutch More than a combined blade holder and led heat sink. The actual conversion shouldn't be too hard. Except getting all the blinkies to fit. Otuer than that the switches are in good spots one of them being a dummy switch tha can be made to work. Now I'm just wondering where to place the charge port.
This with the chassis for spark™ and the kit fisto conversion kit from tim at tcss. I will be building this saber from the inside out ( like a true jedi) Again I would like your opinion about theese parts. In my mind I can see the chassis and chamber fitting togather but I'm not sure how i'd get the led heat sink/ blade holder module to fit togather. Also the switches? The kit fisto switches are held on by an inturtnal mounting ring and one of them is decoratave. Just thaughts and plans for now. I'll start getting the parts to build this project verry soon and will update you as I build. Again ya'lls thaughts are welcome.
Ok for all that are folowing. I did order the kit fisto saber. I also got the spark chassis and a crystal chamber from shapeways. I hope that thy fit in the saber properly. But I'm gona make this an epoc revieal saber, I'm also concittering cutting out a slot so you can see the crystal chamberthrew the hilt. Now I'm actually building this saber from the inside out. Like a real jedi.

Hey Thanks guys I did end up getting the kit fisto. I wanted to use spark but the tcss conversion Keith/blade holder was to long for me to use an such switch and j couldn't find a slice for the illuminated tactile switches. I ended up using an obsidian sound board from ultrasabers with a dimable Buck Puck two rgb fast flashing 5mm leds running a ledengin rggb for green and a yellow foc
I'd like to know how to get a hold of the guys that made the chassis for y'all. Hey Thanks again.
To get those out you carefully drill right down the center. That will remove the fake plastic part. (You won't be able to re use the plastic though) then dremel around the inside ledge of the metal part making sure not to scratch the parts that are seen. The idea is to grind down the threads that are holding it in. It's nearly impossible to unthread this without destroying the part. But if you gring it down eventually it will pop out. Then you can mount te metal part on led and send it back through the hole. A lil epoxy will hold it just fine, along with the wires holding it in.

Awesome Thanks for the pointers. The kit fisto is the only ffx saber I own and imo the most beautiful and share to ruin it I mean I already messed up the screw in ones word the pommel by removing the plastic parts inside but I think they can be salvaged by the way here is a link to the finished saber I made a while ago after it was finished
Rogue Five: I was hoping it would be rereleased in theaters for the 40th but alas 'tis not to be

Rogue Five: As much as I hated Waltless Disney buying Lucasfilm, the one good thing I thought could happen was a rerelease of the unaltered trilogy. But turns out they weren't even good for that.

ZahcStarKiller: Buying supplies to install the OM Obi TPM... Anyone know what the best Tri-Cree combo would be without doing RBG? BBW? rB/B/W?

ZahcStarKiller: Best combo specifically for TPM Obi I mean.
