Question, what transfer paper did you use? Was it the Press-n-Peel PCB transfer film?

Etching looks fantastic, and I'm a really big fan of that switch, too. Good going, tx.

So I spent the better part of Sunday adding the electronics only to turn it on and end up with an expensive stunt saber Sad

I'm pretty sure I probably have a couple bad soldering connections. I had a hell of a time using what I had. So I did some research on flux and solder last night and discovered it makes a big difference out what you use and how you use it.

Ordered some new flux and solder that I think will be much easier to work with and hope to tackle it again this coming weekend. When I finally get everything finished I will start a new thread with pictures and video.

Still, that thing is sick! Nicely done. Hopefully you get the sound thing worked out.

That is truly amazing looking, what a job you did on the project. Looking forward to the sound, I'm sure you will get it working.

Thanks everyone, I'm sure it will get worked out. Have some spare time this coming up weekend so.. Thinking about just gutting it and starting all over (the electronics). May be easier then trouble shooting.
