@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

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.

    • Quote: :S I don't know ... ... today, I just feel *off*. :blink: That's all. :( On the other hand ... * I'm having a pretty nice day off ; * It is a beautiful-weather day and I'm just getting ready to go out (though there is that *off* which is a curious way of "enjoying it") ; * I'm healthy and fed and can afford a cup of chocolate in city-centre ; * I enjoy reading philosophy (I'm not coerced into reading it to earn a pretentious - and useless - university degree) ; * I have several pair of shoes -- I don't know why that is important, but still ... There's about what to be grateful too. It's just one of those muddles that comes on and then itself goes *off*. It's funny, but the grateful is there without having to look for it. The *off* however is really evanescent. And if I kept my awareness on what is really there ... ? Perhaps that *off* is part of a much larger and broader *ON*. :huh: :unsure: I'll let you know later ... ;)

    • Quote: Quote: Quote- "You may look at someone and think he or she is sitting badly, but it's up to that person and there is no moral superiority in standing 'better'. If it works for you do it, but do it quietly. You may find the Alexandre Technique can produce the desired effects if you practise it yourself - telling other people that they need it or that they are standing badly can put them off ever wanting to learn about it. If it works for you that's great - let others wonder about your new graceful way of moving or increased health and vitality. If they want to know your secret they'll ask, and you can tell them, but meanwhile just concentrate on yourself." 'Teach yourself the Alexandre Technique'- Richard Craze This speaks beautifully to a few conversations getting kicked around. Thank you for sharing it! I agree with Cabur Senaar... this rings with a great truth - a Native American might say, "There is power in silence"; A Christian might quote Matthew 6:1 through 8; still another might say, "quietly setting a good example is the noblest way to teach". All a bit different, but can all relate to what you said here - good stuff! :)

    • Kabbalah Course Discussion Group (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • the definition of mysticism has sort of evolved - or maybe itsjust become more open essentially mysticism as the word is used today is the unification of the individual with the whole of reality or at least the sublime ostensibly the sublime experience is in effect tje divine experience and so to be unified is an ecstacy from which we draw not only happiness but also wisdom and purpose every now and again i like to look up the definition of the word "sublime" the path of the mystic is imo simply one linguistic interpretation of the path of knowledge lol or is it the other way around? i think mysticism is great its referenced with "occult" and often (in new age) its associated with "alchemy" which i dont know a fig about what the old alchemist "mystics" really did or belived but its presented now that the word of the day in the alchemist tradition is "transformation" which i dont know of a system that ISNT about transformation, including our exciting (IM excited!) forray into what ive always heard described as "jewish mysticism" the kaballah oh and again im not sure which video its in but kabbalah as its explained here DEFINITELY has a yin/yang concept of giving and recieving i dont recall if he mentioned this but the word itself actually MEANS "to recieve" and he explains that is part of our nature i dont want to say more because i think im talking about videos ahead of where we're at in the convo but imo its not possoble to develop a system that will.actually work for elevating consciousness without pretty much hitting on the same ideas that have always been used to develop consciousness the awesomeness for me is when i find something which offers new (to me) way of explaining something which i relate to more meaningfully than what i had before
    • Jedi First Responder – First Aid for the Jedi byst... (Last post by Locksley)
    • I think that this is a really great topic. Having a clear and solid understanding of proper emergency responses is one of the most important and solid skills anyone can have. As someone living in California, I know that in the event of a serious earthquake EMS may not be available immediately - or at all, for an unforeseeable amount of time. I've had basic first responder training through lifeguard training, as well as an introduction to firefighting class - but I can safely say that it wouldn't be enough in an emergency. If you want to really do some good, you definitely need to go through the official training courses - and heck, take more than one. Keep your ID up to date, and when practice seminars come into your area, attend! Also, as other people here have already mention, the "Good Samaritan" laws vary greatly from location to location. Here in CA for instance the law is basically worthless, as evidenced here. Definitely make sure to do your reading. When in doubt, get the certified training, and it will be likely to protect you in most circumstances. If you live in the US, check out the American Red Cross website for information about local training opportunities. Usually the price is relatively affordable, and the benefits are a very useful skill set. That said, remember that one course will not prepare you for everything - nor is it enough to only take the class once every renewal period. Keep your muscle memory sharp by taking refresher courses whenever possible.
