Ahsoka Tano Replica Saber

Ahsoka Tano
The hilt is from Parks. I lathed the pommel flat, then drilled out a hole so I could add a pommel insert. I have used the material in the pommel in a few of my builds now. Some of the others have been painted, but I just left this one white. I cut the center tube down so it can use a 7/8″ blade. Made a heatsink out of a nub from a TCSS heatsink. The switch is a tiny switch from polulu. I drilled out two holes in the control box, and filed out a slot for the switch since I don’t have a mill. The control box cover was dremeled out to allow for touch plate activation. I ordered a GGG Tri-Cree for this build, and was thinking of using all three, but one of the dice doesn’t work, so this is running GG in parallel. The main portion that took a while was the recharge port. I didn’t want a recharge port in the pommel, nor did I want to have one inside the pommel. I dremeled the inside of the hilt to have the recharge port stick out further, then drilled out and threaded the covertec knob.
