Step 5: Step 5: Final
So, you see... your basic raw materials are.
For the Hilt:
3/4 Pvc tube
Whatever extras you want to put in.
And for the blade:
11 Bright leds will give you a good 40cm Blade. 20 Bright leds should give you a nice 80cm one
** You can buy Leds in Bulk easily. 100 leds shouldnt cost you more than $10. You can buy those really "extra powerfull" ones for $1 each if you want.
3 AA batteries are enough. But 4 AA Batteries or a 9v Battery (or 2) can lead you a long way.
If you buy one of these real simple Korean replicas, you can mod your way trough them and make something worth to bring to your homve movies and convetions. I assure you.
These toys range from $4 to $10 at most. Anything over that should be a ripoff.
The mod i used here allow me to do some really strong swinging with no problems and some weak beating too. Try not to hit it too hard. But there is no objections to clashing your saber onto another!
Either way, you can pull a Custom Lightsaber as low as $10 (or lower!) and a really great custom one as low as $30. Full with powerfull light, sound and usable for battle and movies!
