I have a light staff under way but at this rate itll be another 6 months. Too many other projects.
She gets one that looks vaguely sith like with scratch marks for grip while I get two black and silver handled more classical style. Both handles are aluminum with a mild level of polish and the grip black is a duracoat for maximum durability.
She got the bight teal on the top while I got an aqua and ice blue. Hers is brighter because its a fixed LED while mine are RB and RGB.
Further powering a few hundred milliamps up to an amp for the LED array takes a fair amount of fet power. I milled aluminum heatsinks that socket some FETS and allow a set screw in the handle to press the heatsink into contact on the ID of the lightsaber aluminum tube turning the entire handle into ground and a heatsink. Otherwise these fets overheat and blow within 30 seconds. It turns out using red is even worse because it has such a low potential drop compared to blue and green that the fet has to dump a ton of power. Thus why people making red blades often run half of their LED's in series with the other half. Blues have such a nice high voltage that the fets down have to dump much heat. The quad fet below is powering an RGB saber. with two fo them running the Red led's. The 6 fet sink runs the blade in segments with a common ground (or anode, I forget which) making the blade power up in sequence.
