I was thinking of something long handled like a pudao. This is what I came up with so far.
It is nearly 26 inches long so I have plenty of space to work the guts. The windowed area will house a crystal chamber and I am currently planning to use the Igniter Mini with the Z6 LED and a 2 battery setup.
I'm still working on some more external decorative ideas. I may add a leather and wire wrap over the short smooth areas and there will be decorative grips of some sort using the holes in the last extension by the pommel but I haven't decided just what yet.
I wouldn't mind suggestions on this part but I am thinking about doing 2 speakers with one pointed toward the blade end with holes in the connector most to the right on the bottom diagram for that sound and the other speaker for bass aimed out the pommel but kept up in as far as I can for resonance.
This is my first so comments and suggestions are greatly welcome. and I still have time to plan because I'm waiting on the money to arrive.
I am no expert when it comes to saber building but I can say that is one mighty long hilt. Definitely go for the Maxamp for 2 speakers set up because there are plenty of room in that hilt, I think its going to be loud. I look forward to seeing this when you get into it.
jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.

Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.

Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from

ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.

Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several

Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.

Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.

Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
