I bought this nice blade plug by PropsandPrototypes (from Etsy). They sell various other crafted accessories.

That's exactly the kind of thinking prop builders out in Holywood use.

I remember watching a making of special on the "Aliens" movie back in the day, and they were showing how they used things like trash can lids, and tupperware containers for parts of the walls inside the ship.
I mean, the very first "lghtsaber" was a Gralfex 3-cell flash that was stumbled upon by accident and re-imagined.

Original blaster sounds if I recall correctly, were inspired by a metal fork hitting/taping metal steel ropes, and letting the sound waves travel through.

:lol: Can't take the credit as I'm not the OP of the Clips. You see, there's this site called YouTube and when during nights of insomnia, typing in random (often SW based) words in search, returns some not so random stuff, or in this case, the opposite. :lol:
