The Nightsaber of Ultimate Truth: Part 1

 

 

 

 

I have nearly finished machining the parts for my newest saber, the Nightsaber of Ultimate Truth!  This is a commission for the SCUL gang.   The Pommel, blade guard, and hilt adornments are all machined from brass.

This is the brass pommel and the aluminum connector. I machined this entirely by eye, and the main power switch will sit in the bottom of this.

This is the main compartment in the hilt with a cutout for the button panel.  I realized that making a panel that all of the switches are attached to is much easier than drilling individual holes for each switch

The battery compartment is made of a section of Chrome sink tube.   Simple enough.

Finally, this is the blade holder, heatsink, and blade guard.  I will be posting some pictures of the assembled piece once I put it back together.

    I hope you are making a duplicate for Schleppy.
