Just checking in from the Tampa Bay area in Florida, USA. I made a couple of non-functioning stunt sabers *mumble mumble* ( = ten) years ago, but have begun work on a much more functional and closer to accurate Graflex 2.0--something I've wanted since I can remember. Born that same year, Star Wars was the first film my parents went to see once they had a sitter to do so.

Welcome to paradise! Like Solo said, this place ROCKS. Everyone here is super relaxed, kind, and funny. Here we help each other out, have zero conflict, and embrace this awesome hobby that brings people together. SW is (obviously) a very special thing for all of us here. While I am a bit too young to have seen any of the OT in theatres, I can brag that I actually live where The Battle of Endor in ROTJ was filmed. Just a few minutes drive away in the Redwoods. I watched the OT as a little kid, and the prequels, and have been absolutely obsessed with SW for the last 20+ years. I feel ya!
Please feel free to ask for assistance should you need it, and PLEASE share your build with the gang! We would all love to see the progress.
Welcome to the forum! I lived in central FL for quite a few years, sort of near Orlando and Daytona Beach. Tampa was a really nice place the few times I visited, at least one of my favorites in Florida.
Will be cool to see your progress, and again welcome!
megtoothsith: I guess when I worked at a marina in the 80s and breathed in all that bottom paint dust and acetone cleaning boat bottoms, that it aided this saber addictive brain damage I have developed? someone help me, I cant stop building!

megtoothsith: clamp card switch solution on Korbanth MPP, channel the core to the LED Module and run switch wires alongside LED? or Channel core just forward of the threads perpendicular to the existing channel topside?
