My son asked to get a light saber for his birthday. I Said, when you turn 7, I will help you build one. Until then enjoy your plastic hasbro saber. Well, my son turned 7 last week and it was time to fulfill our agreement.



Now my son was going to put all the internals (or as many as a 7 year old can). He soldered all the wire connections (I did the ones from the board and battery and recharge port. He tinned, soldered, Heat shrinked, drilled (with some guidance) and tapped (with limited help) where appropriate.
