    I don't know if you all know this, but I make lightsabre pictures as a hobby (it's like a slightly less harmful version of crack to me) and I take any opportunity to do pics for people. If you want a lightsabre pic done, PM me and we'll get you on your way. It's free. ;)

    I'm also thinking of setting up a lightsabre pic photo shoot somewhere outdoors in the Calgary area. Ideally I'd take some shots of just people with lightsabres and, if you wanted, some duels (I'll have a sheet keeping track of the shots so you can specify what colour blade you want). Then could either get the photos developed or send them to you by email. I could also host them on my site [link=http://natarnold.kicks-ass.org]Bezotopia[/link].

    Would anyone be interested in something like that? If there's enough interest in it, I'll try and work something out.

    I've got PVC lightsabres (not as good as some homemade, but good enough), the digital camera and the `no photoshop at all' lightsabre-makin' skills.

    Bezo Do you make you own light saber hilts. I read you have a few PVC sabers. I've made a bunch of El sabers and other. I'm organizig and getting pics together and will post shortly. I'm always glad to help out with people building new sabers.

    I'm not very good at the building part. But I'm reasonably good at the [link=http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b4dc39b3127cceb89bc7a4417e0000003610]CGI part.[/link]

    As a Star Wars fan, what could be cooler than having your very own pic of you with a REAL (looking) lightsabre, possibly even dueling with it. :D

    Unfortunately, I'll have to turn you down on your offer for lightsaber pics. :( I kind of do my own...

    Photoshoot aside (and I still want to do it for whoever is interested) if anyone wants lightsabre pics, email me a source pic at toocheaptopayforemail@yahoo.com and specify what colour you want.

    And remember, the higher quality the source pic, the better it will look. ;)

    Your hilts are incredible. I really need to make my own hilt one of these days.

    Edit: Actually, that's probably never gonna happen. How much would you charge me to make me one? ;)

    Hey, fellow Calgarians (actually I'm in Banff), where can I find the THIN-walled PVC, with an innner diameter of just over 1.5"? I have checked many hardware stores, but can only find the thick 400PSI stuff. Also, anyone know where I might find the spray-on plasti-dip, in the city?

    I know this stuff is out there, I have just getting discouraged.

    Thanks.

    I have no idea. I got all my PVC at Electrical Wholesalers here in NorthEast Calgary, but it's not easy to find.

    Jedi_Ranger_007 I have found spray on plasti-dip at only one place in town.
    Industrial Plastic @ 252-8368
    they are located at 5558 1st st se

    I think I payed about 15 bucks a can. It works great. I also ordered my 3/4" polycarbonite tubes from them for my lightsabber blades. What are you using the 1.5" tube for? The hilt??? The last time i used PVC on a lightsaber I bought the think stuff and brought it to work and bored it out on a lathe to make it 1.5" ID. I buy my hilt tubes at Home Depot. Check out the plumbing section and pick up some cromed brass sink drain tubes.

    If you need any help with building sabers let me know and I can give you a hand or knowledge.

    I built a bunch of sabers if you want to see them click on the link in my Sig.
