Where did you get the graflex from. I would like to make my own custom one too.

Turns out my dad is a antique collector, so all I did was ask if I could "borrow" his cameras, and vualla, a lightsaber, sorry I couldn't be of more help. :( But, just go to the nearest antique shop, or something, I don't know.

Ahhh the good time of being a student...you have time to do a lot of things...next time the plumber comes I will ask him to give me the spare parts...I am sure I would be able to come out with something decent :D

yeah i saw you can make a fully custom one out of metal tube and it will be lighter too but you need skills in metal working

10-06-2004, 03:53 PM
Thats pretty cool JediConsularAD, I want to make one now:D

10-06-2004, 04:13 PM
Cool! Now I can make my own! :emodanc:

lets put it this way. You can buy a replica which is mass produced and costs around 119 or build your own one of a kind (or replica as the link shaows you) for around 20.

sorry bout the spelling mistake

10-09-2004, 02:20 PM
If you make a spelling mistake, you can edit the post by clicking the "EDIT" button at the bottom right hand of the post in question, then change it, also I suggest you click the same button on your second post and select to delete it (check the box first) so a mod wont get angry at you, but back on topic, I made a double bladed one, and it kicks @$$!!!!!

10-09-2004, 05:20 PM
thanks for the help and your lightsaber sounds really cool:c3po:

10-10-2004, 04:08 AM
No prob, and mow I have two double bladed ones, and I now use them both at a time, and it ROCKS!!!!!!!!

Btw, you might want to start a similar thread in Yoda's Swamp, (http://lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?daysprune=30&forumid=162) cause there are a lot of people there who would love to now how to do this, and they don't frequent Starwarsknights, shame on them :disaprove :tsk:, just an idea though, ya don't have to....
-Edit=I did so you do not have too.......

10-10-2004, 02:02 PM
Haha, your thread in the swamp got closed.

But anyways Adam, post pictures.

Unforunately, cause of several circumstances, I most likely will not be able to for months, as, because my mom and dad died in a car accident, I will be adopted by one of my mom's relatives in America, none of my Norwegian relatives are able to finacially support me, so the next 2 month will be all packing (packed my lightsabers and computer games(:( :( ) yesterday) so I won't be able to take any pics, though I will be posting ( most likely)....

And why did Darth Groovy lock it up???
Mean , I say...
