I'm looking to get a green light saber cane for my brother. He's in the US Navy and recently had a below the knee amputation on his left foot. He told me that he'd really like a sweet looking cane to use for when he just needs to get around like at home when he doesn't have on his prosthetic. I was looking around online for where I could get one done and this forum came up. If anyone is able to do that please contact me with a quote and when it could be completed/shipped by. He really wanted it for Christmas but I understand that that might be unrealistic. And the only requests he had were that it would be green and light up if possible.

I personally have to use a lightsaber cane a lot. All you have to do is get a lightsaber with a 1" blade holder and I have found that the solid acrulic (with the air bubbles in it) make for an awesome look. The solid acrylic will hold up better than polycarbonate tubing will. Yes, that is a US scorpion, but I did some serious modifications to it. Hehe
Can definitely recommend LDM/General Grievous (FX-Sabers). I have several sabers he's built, all have been excellent. He's has been incredibly helpful when I've needed advice on how to fix something when I try to build sabers (amazing how many things one can do wrong:)...). His cane sabers are viewable on his webpage along with his other work. Great guy, great work, great customer service, can't go wrong.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
