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.
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.
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.
Chapter1 – Chassis pre-assembly
Step 0: Test the overall chassis assembly
The chassis is secured to the hilt using the main AV switch, with a dedicated chassis part that locks onto it, and 4-40 threaded rods and nuts. The hilt lower body can then be unscrewed to reveal the Crystal Chamber and access components.
Note that it possible to install a second tactile switch on this hilt, 180° opposite of the main AV switch. A dedicated slot exists on the chassis to secure the switch (to be installed in the hilt first, then insert the chassis lock part to secure it.
Step 2: Cut the rods and tubes (length described on the right column “Hardware details”.
Then test the overall assembly.
Chapter2 – Assemble the Crystal Chamber
Step 7: add the chamber on the rods (with the 4mmOD tubes cover). Hex nut will be used to lock the chamber at proper distance from the chassis lock part. To see if the hex nuts are correctly set, check on the hilt with the chassis locked by the switch, there shouldn’t be any gap between the 4mmOD tube cover that the hilt.
