Very impressive a build so far. :cheer: I currently know too little about custom sabers to get involved in something of this magnitude. I wasn't aware that the various companies parts were compatible with each other.

as long as they're mhs parts they're interchangeable...and now saberforge is making their hilts and electronics modular...which means more options for customizability...

well the parts have been ordered, now just waiting for them to ship....due to tcss being closed for a few weeks i've had to change the build specs...instead of using the nano biscotte soundcard i'll be using the obsidian 3.0 from ultrasabers....it has more customizability than the nano and a stronger speaker output...at twice the price of the nano....also had to switch battery setup from a single 18650 li ion to dual 14500 li ions....same power output different size/setup....in 2-3 weeks at most silver fang will be complete....

I'd like to learn more of the art of creating a custom saber, but at the moment I'm just focused on getting some WD-40 for the threads on my pommel because Ultrasabers didn't grease it in any way. :angry:

once the parts arrive i'll be using this thread as a sort of tutorial....

my old ultrasaber was never oiled....6years and going and it still opens just fine...the body for my new build wasn't oiled either and it doesn't stick....but i'm constantly opening both sabers.....worst case scenario i'll use some oil from my gun cleaning kit....

well after a few days of wiring and rewiring and research and trying 4 different diagrams i've finally got most of the saber up and running...i'm waiting on a buckpuck to stabilize the power to the led....due to the custom saber shop being temporarily closed i had to get my sound card from ultrasabers (which means the obsidian 3.0 board at twice the cost of the nano biscotte which is what i wanted to use) the obsidian is a bit more complex to wire up than the nb, and it uses more power...i've already began customizing the sound fonts (it doesn't support multiple banks just one really large bank with 12 versions of each sound effect, ie 12 power up, 12 power down, 12 idle, 12 clash, 12 swing, etc...)

once it's finished i'll put up pics...

I wouldn't even know where to begin, beyond hilt design. Digital electronics might as well be sorcery... Actually no - I think I'd have a more intuitive grasp of sorcery than the workings of circuits and their components. I'm more intuitive than analytical, and I would definitely chalk electronics up to the analytical side of the brain.
