Instructables
Hello every one, here I will show you how to make your very own star wars light-saber Boffer weapon. This is roughly $7-10 in material. about $25 if you buy all brand new stuff.

Step 1: Material

1 star wars light saber. the ones that have a big handle and with the colored plastic connectors that you flick out and they connect (I suggest using the 1 i have in the pic cause its easy to work with and looks cool). 3 FT-(1/2 inch PVC pipe). 1 (1/2 inch pvc cap). 1 (SCH40- 3/4 inch adapter). 2 (5 min set time) Plastic epoxy glue. 1 pool noodle

PLease not!!!  when you go to your local hard wear store to get the 3/4 inch adapter, bring a sample piece of your 1/2 inch pvc with you. I have found that not every 3/4 inch adapter will fit on your pvc pipe. what I mean by this is that most will slip on smooth, and this you do not want. You must go through the batches of adapters that the store has on the shelf and find that one (what I call factory dud) that has a little extra plastic on it, inside the connector. You will know you have found the right one when it is hard to fit the 1/2 inch pvc through and once you do, it should be a little pain to pool it back out. if this happend you have found the right connector, Congrats!!, so buy that one. (warning tho, do not keep testing it or you will ware the inside out and it will slid on easy like all the rest)

I've made something like this before, but i used pvc padding/insulation. That made it much thinner and lighter. But i really like the idea of using the handle from the toy. Great job.

Thanks. Yae I would0of liked to make it thinner to but in traditional LARP rule the padding has to be an inch away from the core center. So this is really the only method that will work for legal LARP/Foam battling rules
