There's also ultraforcesabers.com for converted FX's.

@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: For those who stay and do the IP and become knighthood you likely did so because you agree to the system and the beliefs and the path that is laid out, and thus won’t find any problems in it. While I have personally resonated with the temple's path itself, I would not say that it means I don't find any problems in it. I have a hunch there are plenty others here who feel the same. Because it hasn't only been those who haven't progressed to knighthood and further who have suggested changes and improvement - not by a long shot. Quote: As a point Opie once made, if Jedi would be Jedi, there would be none of these things. We all have different points of views and they will vary from person to person, the community of like-minded individuals is what defines the community itself. What I have come to believe demonstrates the first part of second sentence above, but not necessarily the rest of it, in which I feel that being Jedi does not and should not exclude a member and the community at large from having the misunderstandings, arguments, assumptions, and other general imperfect, human flaws that we currently have. If these events never occurred, I would be very concerned that we were all turning into cultish robots. The harder one strives to be "Jedi" (or as my Maitre Alexandre has said "stinking of Jedi"), the further from it we ultimately end up being, because we are essentially rejecting the totality of our own nature. It's not "bad" that from time to time some here act out, throw fits, respond condescendingly, etc. It certainly doesn't mean that it is simply accepted and openly allowed to run rampant. But they are necessary streaks that help to color the community alongside those of the actual abundance of goodwill, benevolence, humility, humor, and acceptance otherwise that many have had testament to as well.
    • "Five Love Languages" (Last post by baru)
    • I enjoyed reading this book. I would appreciate others reading it because it can give a common laguage for people to express how they give and receive appreciation and care. If someone can tell me how I can best demonstrate my appreciation in a way that can be received, imagine how affective connections would be.

    • The Gov has a wonderful job to do. I wish that they just did that. Telling individuals what they can and can not do for themselves and by themselves is not necessarily it. I dream of a world that is self sustaining. Imagine how amazing life would be if everyone was expected to accommodate for their own food, water, and energy? IF every house was able to provide its own needs? Yes, that might limit some freedoms and give us others.
    • Initiation programme (Last post by Adi)
    • Quote: I just don't believe that Jesus killed an innocent tree which could not feed him because it was a wrong season! I understand that the purpose of that myth is to demonstrate the power of faith. But it contradicts my view of Jesus as just and compassionate. So I don't believe this myth - I reject it! :) It may help to remember the example you mention (Mark 11:12-14 and Mark 11:20-23) as metaphorical, since metaphor was a common way of conveying truths if not facts in the ancient world. A common metaphor for Israel, throughout its history, was a fig tree. It's a metaphor that the first readers or listeners of the Gospels would have been familiar with. Considering the context of the Gospels (Jesus upsetting the power balance of Israel - especially its religious authorities), it's not a stretch to see this (especially with the command that no one may eat fruit from the tree again) as a critique of the religious power structure in 1st century Judea. The verses immediately following the encounter with the tree (Mark 11:15-17) but before the verse about moving mountains feature Jesus going into the Temple and turning over tables of "money changers" and merchants selling doves, making a powerful statement through his actions (that is, that temples ought to simply be houses of prayer rather than functioning as banks/marketplaces as they often did in the ancient world.) Jesus was, in a way, doing literally what he did metaphorically to the tree, enough that the Jewish religious authorities immediately set out to try to kill him. So, there is more to it than Jesus simply killing an innocent tree, and that is the tricky part about myths. You can interpret it as a hungry, angry Jesus lashing out at a poor, hapless tree that would not bear fruit for him outside of its season, or you can see it as the metaphor it was *probably* intended to be. The Gospel of Mark is full of cases of metaphorical "side stories" like that which shed light on the "main" story being told, but seem to be irrelevant on the face of things.

    • Chaos, yet Harmony (Last post by MAGNUS)
    • I'm ignorant of the specific situations you're speaking of, but I also reflect on my actions throughout the day in terms of the Jedi doctrine, and a couple more pieces of it came to mind as I read the original post. Teaching 13. Jedi cultivate empathy. We try to view things from another’s perspective making us sensitive listeners. We provide the confidence people need when talking through their difficulties and we share our learning with those who would benefit. We do this to help create a more harmonious society. If those involved had been listening and making attempts to understand, each other's view, maybe it would not have reached the point of harsh words being exchanged. Pure Motive: To act with motive and purpose. Without a sound motive and purpose, action has no meaning, no destination and lacks a foundation. A Jedi moves with the Force, trusts in its ways. A Jedi’s actions are firmly based upon a deep motivation to be as their path dictates. What ends is accomplished by lashing out? What's the motive and purpose of arguing in this way? Just my own thoughts based on your description x57. Thank you for reminding us all we do fall short of the ideal at times.
