3- Additional chassis parts:

Most of the chassis parts needed for our chassis are available at The Saber Armory.
Local hobby stores or online store (as well as eBay) are a good source for parts.
You can also be inventive and add any custom parts, wire mesh, paint job or else to your chassis to give it an unique look!
Here is a list of parts needed to install the above chassis:
Brass or copper rods – 1.5mm max OD

 

4– Electronic components and blades:
Saber electronic components are basically more or less similar from one saber to another. You’ll need a main Led, a Battery, a recharge port, one or two switches, a soundboard, accent leds, a speaker and wires. Then the blade is the last part of your saber, they are usually made from PolyCarbonate tubes + tip.
You can find most of what you’ll need at The Saber Armory. Some components can also be found at The Saber Bay on Etsy. Local electronic shops or online stores like Digikey are also a good source.
Soundboard, CFX or ProffieBoard
Battery, 18650 battery
⇒ Recharge Port, 1.3mm recharge port
 Battery charger, according to the battery voltage used.
 Kill Switch, high amp slider switch
 Main Led, Tri-Cree or Neopixel
 Switches are included with the hilt.
 Speaker, 22mm Speaker
 Wires, we strongly recommend PTFE wires, as the insulation is thin while still able to handle current very well.
Use the smallest AWG size possible:
– Tri-Cree install => 30awg for eveything
– Neopixel install => 32 awg wires for everything except Battery and Neopixel strip + and – (24awg PTFE).
 Heat shrink tubing, to protect your joints.
 7/8″ OD Blades  or 1″ OD blades.
When the blade is removed, you can add a blade plug for security and aesthetic ⇒ Example in the shop

Disclainer:
– These instructions will details the install procedure as much as possible. GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made by DIYers.
– Always wear protective gear when working on install (gloves, eye protection, …), GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible in case of accident.

Recharge port wiring reminder:

SHIEN:


The main chassis comes with the back cover attached to its front, the sprues have to be cut and removed.
That cover is used if the Crystal Chamber is not installed. If the Crystal Chamber parts are installed, then the cover can be discarded.


The battery is installed first, with the wires facing the front of the chassis, in order to double them back into the wire channel.


There is a slot to insert the speaker the 22mm speaker (it needs to be secured using super glue or E6000).


Add the heatsink or NPX holder, with the switches installed.
Note: to easy the install, if tri-cree led is used, it is recommended to cut channels in the heatsink, similar to the NPX holder, so that it could be inserted from the back of the hilt).


It will also make thing easier to glue the heatsink or NPX holder on the chassis to avoid rotation when inserting the assembly into the hilt.


All wires are to pass through this dedicated channel.

 


Recharge port and kill switch are to be installed in this location, the recharge insert from inside the chassis, and the kill switch from outside (they need to be secured by glue).


1.5mmOD rods are used to attach either the back cover or crystal chamber parts.


The heatsink or NPX holder is secured by a set screw.


The chassis is secured at the same location as the black greeblie crew (or covertec screw alternatively).
Longer screws could be used to replace the hilt ones. Or the screw provided with the hilt can be shortened, in order to allow a small set screw to be installed underneath to lock the chassis.

SHOTO:

The battery is to be inserted first with the wires coming out on the back side of the chassis.
The battery needs to be secured with super glue / E6000 to avoid falling forward into the speaker.

THe the speaker is added, facing back as well (to be secured with super glue / E6000).

The Heatsink or NPX is added with the switches installed into it.
The wires are all passing through this channel
As the Large hilt, to ease the install if tri-cree led is used, it is recommended to cut channels in the heatsink, similar to the NPX holder, so that it could be inserted from the back of the hilt). It will also make thing easier to glue the heatsink or NPX holder on the chassis to avoid rotation when inserting the assembly into the hilt.

Recharge port and kill switch are to be installed in this location, the recharge insert from inside the chassis, and the kill switch from outside (they need to be secured by glue).

There are channel for the wires around the battery to pass wires under the soundboards and access the kill switch too.

Note: an earlier version of the cover model was missing the side channels for wires, if that’s the case, dremeling the channel into the cover will be required.

The cover are installed with 1.5mmOD rod in 4 locations.

The chassis is inserted from the back and the heatsink or NPX holder is secured by a set screw.

Same as the large hilt, the chassis is secured at the same location as the black greeblie crew (or covertec screw alternatively).
Longer screws could be used to replace the hilt ones. Or the screw provided with the hilt can be shortened, in order to allow a small set screw to be installed underneath to lock the chassis.
