I've been working on a video tutorial to recreate a V1 Hero lightsaber in as close to a similar way as the originals would have been made.

Youtube playlist

This is all done on manual machines. My Lathe is from 1954 and my Mill is from the early 80s. Have a look and enjoy.

I am also using this as an experiment to learn some video editing. I know the first few are pretty bad so maybe just skim through them.

I redid the first video because it was really way to long and not very exciting. I've learned a lot over the past few weeks just making videos. I have a long way to go but I think it's at least an improvement.
