Steampunk Lightsaber - how I built one https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/ Steampunk Lightsaber - how I built one Wooden lamp support https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621142 165621142 Vcr micro switches https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621145 165621145 Drill out switch holes https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621143 165621143 Test fit https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621144 165621144 Take apart flashlight and a laser pointer https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621146 165621146 Take apart (relocate) flashlight switch, hopefully without damaging the switch https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621147 165621147 Put the middle threaded hollow rod from the lamp through the switch hole, held in place with a nut and washer https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621148 165621148 Figuring out the wire placement https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621149 165621149 The basic idea https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621150 165621150 Feels good https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621151 165621151 Copper plumbing connectors. Also took a small (BX) articulated mini flashlight arm, off the laser pointer. https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621152 165621152 The laser pointer fit inside the copper. Had to use electrical tape inside, wrapped around the light, just to keep it a friction fit https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621153 165621153 Used the articulated arm to run the wires back to the handle and switches https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621154 165621154 Cleaned up/soldered the wired https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621156 165621156 Added a ceiling fan pull knob to the laser pointer. It can be removed, but I like the effect as a diffuser. https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621157 165621157 Put a brass sink tail piece, with the slip nut to cover over the flashlight. Also drilled holes in the brass, to make it look a tad bit cooler. The tripod is just for show. https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621158 165621158 In the dark. https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621160 165621160 Added a brass cone and metal ring (from a hanging light), so I can hang this from my belt. https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621155 165621155 Top https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621159 165621159 Middle https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621161 165621161 Bottom https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621162 165621162 All together https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621163 165621163 It's solid and hangs well on a belt. https://www.steampunkcanada.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=165621164 165621164
