Hello saber fans. I'm Jack A.K.A Darth Midian. I've been building lightsabers since the summer of 2009. My medium of choice is PVC. PVC is a great inexpensive way to create the lightsaber of your dreams. A lot of people feel that PVC is an inferior medium and that you're limited in what you can do with it. The only thing that limits your use of PVC is your imagination. PVC gives you, the builder 100% creative control. The only way one can gain 100% creative control with aluminium is to have your own lathe.
I don't build sabers for a commission, I build sabers because I love Star Wars, lightsabers, and the hobby. The purpose of this thread is to show you what you can achieve with PVC, to show you the techniques that I use to create a PVC saber, and to display the sabers I've created. I also have an MHS saber and a sink tube MHS combo saber under my belt. So I'm not against MHS or aluminun, I just love the creative freedom that I have with using PVC.
I'm also here to offer my assisstance as best I can for any of your builds. If anyone comes up with a new technique or has a better way of doing something please don't hesitate to share your advice, we all learn from each other here.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my work, Jack (Darth Midian)
lkstarkiller: Yea, I just watched the video for igniter 3. So that will be my graflex board.

scarecrow: I'm doing a Graflex with and I3 and Intelliblade, too. MB Chassis with a drop in 18650. I've got high hopes for that one.

Rogue Five: That's the exact same setup I'm planning for my Graflex also. Show us the way, scarecrow...show us the way.

scarecrow: You got it. I'll be starting a thread called Scarecrow's Workshop in the Dagobah section. It'll be there.

lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400

lkstarkiller: I am livid right now..... I don't know if I will be able to sleep tonight.

scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.
Dec 14, 2017 3:50:26 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.

scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.

ARKM: Dang! I hope you get your saber.

Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.

Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.
Dec 14, 2017 4:28:59 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th
Dec 14, 2017 4:33:18 GMT -5
scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.
Dec 14, 2017 4:34:21 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.
Dec 14, 2017 4:37:52 GMT -5
Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
