"I see you've constructed a new lightsaber. Your skills are complete." Calixte asked me to set this up a while ago, so I figured I'd check first, to see what kind of interest there is in getting together in Sept. to build lightsabers. I know there are several Jedi costumes-in-progress out there, and having your own custom saber in Sept. would provide that extra touch in pleanty of time for Halloween. The intent of the gathering would be that we'd all start with our own pile of parts and walk out with completed, custom sabers. As an example of what can be done for under $20 ea., you can take a look at [link=http://www.jushhome.com/hiddenphantom/sabers2.jpg]these sabers[/link] I made for the fan film I'm working on. I can offer up a make-shift workshop (two-car garage) and a pile of tools including two dremmels, hack saw, metal files, etc. at my house. (about 5 min. from the Lansdale Turnpike exit.) We could work together on the forum in the weeks leading up to the meeting to discuss designs and parts. Then everyone could show up with parts in hand for final assembly together. (Parts are generally easy to find and cheap to buy. Lots of stuff comes from HomeDepot's plumbing and electrical departments.) As a finishing touch to the meeting, we can shoot video and photos of everyone with their new sabers and I can add the glowing blades with the effects software being used for my film. So, anyway, please post here if you're interested and/or have any questsions. If there is enough interest, I'll talk to Calixte about setting up a poll for dates. Have fun!
