Introduction: Simple Led Lightsaber
Hope you like my instructable (it’s my first)
All supplies are listed on step 2
Step 1: Why I Made It.
Because of COVID 19 I thought I would start a project and since I love Star Wars I thought I would make a lightsaber.
BTW this is my first instructable, and feel free to tell me what you think. Hope you enjoy!
Step 2: Supplies.
For this project you will need:
Sharkbite (it’s like thin pvc)
Polycarbonate tubing (make sure it sturdy and not flimsy, I got mine from amazon) 1inch OD
PVC 1 1/2 OD 1inch ID
PVC caps any kind depending on what kind of light saber your making.

You will also need a power bank (make sure it’s less than an inch wide)
And spray paint of your choosing.
Step 3: Putting It Together.
Once all your parts arrive and you have them ready follow these steps:
Cut the polycarbonate tube, pvc, and shark bite to the right size, next measure how long your blade is and double it and cut that length on your led light strip, next double it over and put it into the shark bite make sure it fits. Next plug the led light strip into the power bank and put the power bank in the pvc handle (you might have to squeeze the wires in so it fits) if the polycarbonate tube is too small for the handle wrap some duct tape around the really bottom of the polycarbonate tube and twist it in.
Step 4: Conclusion.
I hope you enjoyed this instructable and feel free to ask me questions if your confused. Next I’m gonna show how I made my mandolorian armor.
Hope you enjoyed!
