@meatloaf: Look around at fx-sabers.com. Many manufacturers are listed and active there. If however you prefer reasonable prices you are probably better off building one yourself from scrap metal and/or parts such as from thecustomsabershop.com (for I've calculated the costs for self-made MHS sabers to the prices of e.g. JQ Sabers MHS sabers and the differences are inappropriate IMO).
For custom and original parts and shapes you'd be better with sabersmiths unless you are skilled with lathes and stuff.

Having just gone on the custom saber shop I really want to make my own now. Does anyone know of a guide etc or what each part is for?

Thanks a lot

Re: First LED saber 30 Apr 2012 16:44 #58401

the design parts are self-explanatory. however, the electronics depend on the design (in terms of space in the inside etc) and on what electronics you want it to have precisely. on the other hand, chassis installs depend on electronic parts you want to fix inside your hilt.

I like it :D, how did you come up with your saber design? did you go upon how it felt to you or did you base it off of a design which you had a fondness of?

I went with a design that called out to me...coinidentally the name of the design is"arbiter" which means judge....ultrasabers.com is a good place to get good mhs hilts at decent prices... thecustomsabershop.com is good for getting the mhs parts for your own deisgn of sorts and the have a hilt design maker you can use to design your own hilt with a variety parts that are premade

I highly recommend not to order at ultrasabers. While their hilts are excellent in durability and design, their blades are not and electronic parts are sometimes bend together instead of soldered. There is more quality lacks, I just point out the most obvious and not getting into the specific stuff like parts fixation or LED optics.

Thank you, Gisteron. I only recently discovered that site while looking for a gift for a friend.

Do you know a better location ? I am interested too, as my friend's birthday is in May.

I will try to get this in over the weekend and start #2 as well!

    • Discussion 2 - Refusal of the Call (Last post by jedi_roz)
    • Have you ever refused the call? Do you regret it? Can you think of a time where you refused the call and it turned out to be the right decision? Refused a call? Yes, in going to a different university. I ended up choosing one closer to home rather than one that was halfway across the country. I chose to be two hours from home rather than two days because my family was not in the best health and both my brothers were still in school, I felt responsible to help them if I needed to be home fast. However in the end it worked out because I fell in love, got married and am now teaching at my first college that I graduated from. What are the most common reasons people "refuse" adventure in their lives, and why? I think people get comfortable. They are afraid to take a chance, or can't take that chance due to personal circumstances. I couldn't leave tomorrow for another job across the country because we would have to sell our house, figure out our animals, the horses etc. Try and think of two reasons in addition to the ones listed above that someone might refuse the call, ideally one negative reason, and one positive reason. Do you think they are good reasons? In our instance my husband would have to quit his job for me to move but if I got a full time job in the teaching field it would be a good thing. I do think that's a great reason, and I'm actively hunting for just that. I'm 32 years old and have no future, nothing saved, no retirement to look forward to. I need to start looking to that future. Think of our doctrine. Are there any reasons one might refuse the call based on something listed there? If so what, and why? I refer to this line: We Believe; In the sanctity of the human person. We oppose the use of torture and cruel or unusual punishment, including the death penalty. I would certainly refuse a call to commit horrible acts on humans (or animals even) A great example in my area right now is just recently a small 4yr old boy was beaten to death by the mothers boyfriend. I will save the list of injuries except to say the child suffered for almost a day and half before he got medical attention and by that point the damage was done and he passed. Now there is darn near a lynch mob for the guy who did this and people are downright ready to kill him. Truthfully the mother in me is aghast, however we were talking about it at work and one of my coworkers friends is the father of this little boy. She is ready to commit murder to avenge this child's death. I couldn't follow her conversation. I agree punishment is in order, and certainly drastic but what people have threatened to do or even commit to this man is just wrong. Could I work in the jail where this man is at? Could I be in the jury to condemn this man? I don't think so. I don't feel I could treat this guy right, (not that I am going to do anything to him but I don't think I could stay neutral in this scenario, I wouldn't be able to do my job) I don't want to see what people describe doing either. I just try to stay as neutral as possible. This one is hard because passion runs high and people are angry.
    • Too Much Forgiveness: Is there such a thing? (Last post by Brenna)
    • When I was little the expression "forgive but never forget" seemed rather ominous and almost like an oxymoron. But I see it differently now. To forgive someone is to let go of the resentment, prejudice and hurt that you hold. Forgiveness is not a condoning of actions, nor is it an invitation to repeat the actions. And there comes a point where repeated offenses are little more than an abuse of trust. I believe you can forgive someone for what they have done, but still not allow them the opportunity to repeat it.

    • Workout Check-In Thread (Last post by Edan)
    • Day 17 checking in. Today was yoga, 40 minutes. My muscles are in that kind of achy state at the moment from the work I've been doing ( :) ) so it was hard, but actually it was the best one I've done so far. I attempted, and (bar a few failed attempts in which I fell on my face and laughed at myself), I managed to do Bakasana / Crow pose. For anyone that is interested, crow pose is where you lean forwards on your hands looking forward, and balance your knees on the back of your arms. It is not easy and I've failed previously, but the fact I managed it today means that I am definitely stronger than when I started, which is good.
