Saber with Light Up Blade

I decided to take the challenge up a level and add a lighted blade. ¬†Essentially, I dissected a cheap flashlight from the dollar store and rewired its internals and, for the first time ever…..I soldered something!….to create something that’s not bad…and looks fairly good too. ¬†I added some “weathering” and was really happy with how it came out.

I liked it so much, I built an exact duplicate and added a small, high powered magnet on the ends so that they could be quickly attached to make a double bladed saber.
