How to Make a Cool Lightsaber Flashlight!

First thing you need to do is get a lightsaber toy (I had one in my attic).  

Other things you need
- Hand Saw
- Strong Glue (I used Gorilla Glue)
- Small Flashlight (I used Mini Maglite)(****MAKE SURE IT CAN BE TURNED ON FROM TOP****)

P.S.  This is my first Instructable so please forgive me if its not perfect.

Step 1: Cut on Line of Choice

Cut depending on the size of your flashlight and how long you wanted the lightsaber part to be.  Cut on the notches that extend the lightsaber.  

Step 2: Extra Fitting Procedures (if Doesn't Work First Time)

If you mess up and cut on the wrong notch and your flashlight doesn't fit, do not panic.  You can rearrange different pieces of the lightsaber and glue them back to fit the size of your flashlight.

Step 3: Glue Flashlight Into the Hole

Once you have cut on the notch of your choice and everything fits, it is time for the next step.  Apply glue to the inside of the lightsaber and try to avoid putting too much so your glue doesn't leak out when you put your flashlight in.  

Fit in your flashlight and let it dry.

Once it is all glued in it should look like this...

Step 4: Make Sure All Components Work

Hold down activation trigger/button (usually red) and you can tuck in or release out.

Step 5: You Are Finished!

Good job! If you have any questions or concerns please comment.  I had a good time making my first Instructable.
