Hello everyone, this is my second replica saber. I built this saber for Lance (Darth Xanthus). He sent me a message on facebook saying, "Hey I think this would make a great pvc saber." So I took the hint & built it. I just finished it today. The hilt of course is pvc. It has a black mat grip, black covertech wheel, 1" trans white thick walled blade, 5 degree lens, Lux III red led, Obi Wan econo board with pnp transister & resistor, 1" premium speaker, & is powered by 3 AAA batteries. I'm really happy with the way this saber turned out. Here are some pics.
First some inside pics. Here is the speaker chamber, batteries, & sled. I used some scrap 1" thin walled blade stock for the sled. This stuff works great for 1" pvc.
Multiple hilt shots.
A close up of the emitter.
And a video. These new econo boards sound awesome & they're pretty sensitve.
