Other Chassis for Graflex

89Sabers Graflex Master Chassis

This chassis design features a nice see through Crystal Chamber with a spinning part opposing the Crystal.
The 18650 battery is wired since the 89Sabers hilt won't allow enough space for both a Crystal Chamber and Removable Battery. This chassis thus uses a recharge port and kill key.

Introduction

  • Disclaimer

    GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made by DIYers during their install. You must have a good understanding of what you’re doing, of the components used and the safety measures associated to them. Always wear protective gear when working on install (gloves, eye protection, …), GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible in case of accident.

  • Note #1

    Always use the smallest wires to make your install easier. There can be big differences between one wire type and another for the same AWG specs. PTFE Wires with the smallest OD are recommended such as those sold at The Saber Armory. A good wire management is also required, routing wires properly helps a lot saving space.

  • Note #2

    These instructions will not cover how to wire the soundboard, make sure to learn how to by reading the manual. Always test your install along the way! Verifying that everything works after important steps is better than having to dismount everything because something wasn’t wired properly.

Chapter 1 – Chassis Prep

  • Step 1 – Separate the plastic chassis parts

    Step 2 – Cut the rods and tubes (refer to the tab under part list for details)

    Step 3 – Test the chassis assembly.
    The highlighted rods below help keeping a proper chassis alignment.
    (they can be easily bent to match or they can be removed in which case the installer must make sure the chassis is well straight when installing it).
      

    Step 4 – Glue the magnets on the cover and chassis parts
    Magnets location is different whether a CFX or Proffieboard is used.

Chapter 2 – Chassis Install

  • Step 5 – Wire and glue the speaker in its slot

    Step 6 – The chassis has slots for 2 x 2020 NPXL accent strips (optional)

    Step 7 – wire and glue the motor in its slot. Leave the black plastic part of the motor out.

    Step 8 – Glue the spinning insert on the motor (careful to glue only the motor stem).

    Step 9 – proper wires management in important in order to make sure the motor don’t get caught in wires. Here is the wires channel:

    Step 10 – Install the soundboard, and make sure the wires are well managed on both sides.

    Step 11 – Glue the CC Shell, the 4mmOD tubes, and the 1.5mmOD rods

    Step 12 – Glue the Crystal in its slot.

    Step 13 – Insert the CC shell on the chassis assembly. Then glue the part on the rods and tubes.

    Step 14 – wire and install the single pixel behind the crystal

    Step 15 – Wire and install the recharge port.

    Step 16 – Insert and glue the recharge port holder on the chassis assembly.

    Step 17 – Wire and install the battery.

    Step 18 – Insert the speaker cap
