The Creation of the Laser Swords

Cheddar Monk
Right; documentation of how I built my laser swords. Astro-mech K35-T31? You recording?

Ok, Stage 1: Assemble materials



Stage 2: Commence preliminary reading



... secondary reading...



... um, tertiary reading?...



BLEEP BLEEP BOoDLE BLIP?
[translation: Um, Mistress?]



BEEP BLIP MEEP BLIP BLEEEPbliP?
[trans: Weren't you supposed to be building a sword?]



Right, yes, um... Just let me finish my tea...

Ok, Stage 3: Soak Crystal hilt pods in hot water to cleanse impurities...



Stage 4: meanwhile, apply thermal glaze to unobtanium blade...


Damn, damn... Best put in an adendum here K35; memo, do not forget to carefully apply clear fixative tape post application, or the bloody glaze will bleed all over your hands...



Uugh, best go wash this off before it stains.

Right, Stage 5: thoroughly dry crystal hilt-pod, and connect up all internal monofillament threads



Stage 6: Pierce unobtanium blade in appropriate positions, and run a green force-conducting thread through the holes



Now, this is where it gets tricky... Stage 7: insert blade into crystal pod, and wrap green force-thread around hilt, attaching same to monofilament connectors.



And cover with force-insulating tape to secure and prevent sparking.



Make sure connecting ends of force-thread are still accessible



Right.
Stage 8: Tightly wrap blue force-thread around the crystal hilt through appropriate groove...



... and attach at green connection.



Nearly there...

Stage 9: Repeat step 8 with white force-thread above the juncture, to secure, and attach to second green connecting thread.



And there we go! One finished laser sword!



BLIP ... BLEEEP BliP BEEP?
[It's a bit ... small isn't it?]

Yes, perhaps you're right K35. Tell you what...



Right, now I have two!
Take some pics, K35!
