LIGHTSABERS - $10 - $20 complete stars1.gif (218 bytes)

LIGHTSABER INSTRUCTIONS - coming soon!

DARTH VADER ANH LIGHTSABER
This lightsaber is created using pvc piping, chrome tape, various rubber hoses, tubing caps, windshield wipers, screws, glue, tape and foam, let's begin...
Take a section of plastic tubing, cut to desired length and cover completely in 'chrome' tape (or paint), then take a black coloured section of 'u' bend tube and cut a slanted section from this, it should now just snap into position on the end of the tube.
Now get a set of standard windshield wiper blades, cut them into 6 equal lengths and glue them into even position, add a rubber plumbing seal to the centre of the tube. Screw 2 silver wood screws into the head end and stick 2 hi-fi feet on the ends. The emitter is simple a headboard bolt cover with a chrome screwbolt in the middle, finally weight the saber and glue in the end cap (which is a plumbing end cap). You now have a Vader Saber for under $20 -

LUKE SKYWALKER ANH LIGHTSABER
This lightsaber is created using the same materials, but spending more time sculpting the emitter end, this saber also takes a 4' blade, which was made from lightweight aluminium, the total cost for this saber was an unbelievable $15 - Below Pictures...

ELECTRONIC LIGHTSABER - $20 stars1.gif (218 bytes)

KENNER POTF DARTH VADER ELECTRONIC SABER
The electronic saber is actually a fair prop, the saber blade needs to be removed (for it to look more realistic), this is done by unscrewing the bulb holder and pulling off the blade - Below Pictures...

With the blade removed, you can now touch-up the black areas on the saber with paint, the saber is silver and the black details have been painted, so expect the paint to flake in certain areas - Below Pictures...

Place a screen over the bulb, this should be a clear disc of plastic, this protects the bulb from getting damaged - Below Pictures...

Then simply re-attach the head and there you have it!, the Kenner saber does make the correct 'humming' sound and also has the activating and de-activating sound, overall you'll be very impressed with this prop, happy dueling! - Below Picture...

JEFF PARKS LIGHTSABER - $100+ stars2.gif (222 bytes)

MEAN GUY SABER CONVERTED TO DARTH VADER
Parks Sabers made several fairly accurate film sabers some time ago, this version was called 'Mean Guy', based on Darth Vader's Saber, the saber has had the shroud re-positioned and the d-pin added, the grips are a harder plastic which is nice as it won't wear like rubber will - Below Pictures...

The detailing is beautiful, the powder coated areas are faultless and as you can see, rather than hang this by the d-pin on the shroud, we have added a smaller d-pin to the endcap! - Below Pictures...

All in all this is an unbelievably accurate replica that would accompany any Vader costume perfectly!! - Below Pictures...
