Does anyone know where the offer/sell different blade plugs with crystals?  Also, I wonder the the polycarbonite tubing from Home Depot is okay to use.  I'd hate it melting on the LED.

Here is the beginning of my first blade plug.  The top part is the business end of a kitchen sink faucet aerator. I would rather post the actual picture rather than the link, but not sure how to do that yet, lol

My first fully custom blade plug.

I finished the custom blade plug using an old US standard blade. I really like the way it turned out, even if it isn't really visible when lit.

Who has made their own round razor blade plugs before? Would say, standard ones from wal mart fit the blades? I'm gonna be getting some soon to try and make myself =]

Same as the blades... 1" (or 2.54 centimeters, if you prefer).

There's actually a post a few pages earlier on, I forget who made one though with a round type razor piece, like from the shavers basically (Ex: Phillip's round type shaver)

So far in this thread, I have seen one method mentioned for cutting the polycarbonate tube, and that's been a fine-toothed hacksaw.  iw there any other recommended method?  For instance, what about a tube/pipe cutter for plumbing pipes?  I'm thinking of something similar to this.

Hi Cyclops942, that type of pipe/tube cutter is the best method I have seen and recommend. It reduces dust produced to near zero as it "scores" a line around the blade then cuts into the scored line as you tighten and rotate the cutter. The finished cut is much cleaner and straight plus as there is no dust you don't get loads of debris inside your blade afterwards. Then a decent sharp craft knife and straight edge to cut down your diffusion film if you're cutting a blade down (obviously no need to cut film for a plug!)
