Perhaps not the most original ASP, however I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I was looking to create a hilt that was small short enough that it wouldn't be uncomfortable to wield one handed(some previous sabers I've bought have been a little too long and, even though I've got rather large hands, they bump my wrist when I try to use them one handed). The "anodized" finish, which they apply before weathering, seems to cause a bit of a tight fit for the blade and speaker. With a little sanding, it all works out.

I just received the Hero plug and play package today and installed it, I will post the completed saber when I get some time. Unfortunately I'm currently working 6 days a week.

Hi Nishtol,

You say that your saber isn't very creative but I like it, and the main thing is that YOU designed it using the parts that "Called to you" and you assembled it yourself.

The saber is yours!

Congrats and kind regards,

For Tyeth

I did say "Perhaps" it isn't original, not that it wasn't creative..lol..as for what called to me, it was more the price and sizes that made the call.
I'm thinking of designing my own saber which I'm not sure yet how to proceed. I want to copper electroplate strips(I know I'll need to use vinyl to do this) and electroetch the aluminum to weather. I'm looking for the copper to age green(Usually doesn't take very long with oils created by one's hands). What I'm not sure about is how to prevent the threaded portions and interior from being plated as well.
