So I recently received my OWK ROTS saber from Roman Props. The inner diameter of the saber is much smaller than the standard MHS style parts so I'm a bit out of my depth when doing the electronics side. Too much of it is likely going to be custom. Plus I'd like to use a crystal focus card and my soldering skills may not be up to the challenge. I'm wondering if anyone out there knows of trust worthy people that will take an empty hilt and do the electronics? Ideally within a few weeks.

Look up Sabergasm on Facebook. 4-5 smiths across the US that have banded together and are doing installs.

I used a guy I know named Shameem for mine. Unfortunately cannot recommend. For $350 the parts were just shoved in the hilt with electricians tape and a plastic rube. No chassis used in the install. I wasn't happy.

You ever get this finished? I just finished installing electronics in my inception.
