Since a few members are starting(or have started) to make their own lightsabers out of stuff found in hardware shop and other places, I'm starting this thread so we can all share this rather new trend in Malaysia.
I will try and finish off the 2 hardware sabers I've been working on and post some pics. Also just started on a new one but is having problem cutting the PVC tube properly at an angle . Can anyone lend me a Mitre saw? ;D
The copper pipe thing? I went to Attria 2nd Floor. There is a shop that sells bathrooms, toilet and accessories.
Just asked for the Kitchen sink water trap (the metal ones), the "U" pipe under your sink. I am sure KK got such shops.
I am getting the raw EL materials from those supplying advertising/lighting/signboards material. Look for "neon wire".
The other materials are polycarbonate tube (transparent tube) and polyethylene tube (the translucent tube). You can try to look for those in shops dealing with engineering plastics. Normal hardware shops don't carry them.
The whole EL materials, electronics and piping cost about USD100 including shipment

Oh, I don't need the "U" pipe under the sink. What I need are soft metal/PVC pipes which are chromed. The chromed pipe you're using for the saber we saw during the March gathering is way too hard to work with...
