Introduction: LED Torch Light Saber

About: educator "technologist"

This is a project of my son Marcky. According to him: "I thought of this one night before I slept. I found my flashlight that I got for my birthday. Then I came across a paper towel core." According to me: "The rest is history."

Step 1: Find a Plastic Milk Bottle Small Enough to Fit Snugly Into a Paper Towel Core.


Step 2: Cut a Half-inch Section of the Bottle From the Bottom.


Step 3: Plug the Tail End of the Torch Through the Opened Bottom of the Bottle.


Step 4: Slide the Two Joined Parts Into the Paper Towel Core.


Step 5: Use Sticky Tape to Hold the Three Parts Together.

    But the light wouldn't end at a fixed point. It also would be thin and not very hot.

    couldnt you just tape the flashlight onto the end of the milk bottle

    Pictures and better description?

    cool i made something almost just like that with a key chain light and a straw

    Some pics would be nice...

    you could try one of these they are just a hilt and the blade retracts
