This one has been sitting on my bench for far too long, it was time to finish it.
A little back story first, after selling the 2 Duke I bought from Korbanth’s run (too much work required, and no tools or time to do it), I bought a moded and install ready one from Khal. Khal did an excellent prep work on this hilt, big shout out to him, there is no comparison between the raw Dukes I had and this moded one I received from him These mods allowed me to install a Mini R5 too, with a 18500 cell, pretty cool ^^!
- Korbanth Duke run - Various Hilt mods done by Khal - 1? ID bore, sound vent on the pommel, few holes removal, polish & chrome coat, media blasting, recharge port hole, screw gold coat, … - Custom small brass main and aux switches on side grip (brass rod and tube). - X-4 RRGB main Led - Igniter Mini R5 soundboard – Single 18500 Cell - 3D printed chassis, kill key, recharge port holder, speaker holder (with my printer) – 2W Bass Mini Speaker – 7/8? blade
Speaker module and recharge port are both in the joint piece
For the switches, I didn’t want to spend too much time thinking and wanted something reliable too. So there are located in one of the bottom grip (left grip). Cutting a window was the only thing I was able to do with my Dremel btw…
And here is the chassis
Thanks for watching, Cheers

Looking great! I still need to view the vid again when I have less background noise, but the little I managed to hear through (I'm at work ATM), sounding great too! Glad to see more of these getting finished, despite they are "a bit" rough on the edges, people tend to forget these are still the best custom alternatives out there for this particular replica. I personally consider the fat FFX pig way too big.
I still have some tweaking to do on the Mini config, but it's a pretty cool saber to play with already I'd like to see more build logs and working saber on this one anyway, see which way other builders go, but I think there are still quite a few build in progress...

blessedwrath: Finally have more time to actually do things, now that I've left my job. I'm eager to get back into saber building again. ^_^

blessedwrath: As a first step, I've actually messed with TinkerCad a little bit. I've got the first run of custom chassis discs on the way. Gotta test 'em before I can offer them for sale.
