    I'm looking for an acrylic blade for my custom saber to go with my Jedi costume for the release. Does anyone know where I can find one in Ontario? I'm looking for a 36" long and 3/4" O.D. I would rather find an acrylic rod than buy one on-line. Any help is appreciated I'm looking to get one before the release.

    Don't know anyone in Ontario offhand that sells them I'm afraid.

    There is a place in Quebec that does. I bought a neon green rod from them via some people in Buffalo who did a bulk order. They look fantastic in bright sunshine.

    Check in the yellow pages under plastics though, maybe someone can order it in for you.

    Oh you want to try and get at least 4 ft of rod btw. Typical blade length is 3 ft, so you need a few inches extra at least to mount it. Its easy to cut down longer pieces. If the place sells in metric, get 1 metre, thats 39 inches so it gives just enough room to mount the blade and have almost full length available.
