I leave my alignment to Fate-whether Light or Dark


« on: February 08, 2019, 06:07:12 PM »

So unlucky me tipped my saber bag a few minutes ago and the covertech wheel of my Diamond Savior must have fallen at just the wrong angle, because I managed to bend it. The saber is otherwise undamaged, so I think it might be better to get a covertech and install myself rather than sending it in, since it's my regular saber and I don't want to have to wait for it to come back.

I just wanted to verify that there aren't any unexpected pitfalls in doing a covertech installation (especially since the whole is already there). It seems simple, but I'm afraid that means there's some sort of catch I'm unaware of. Is there anything particularly tricky about the installation, or is it straightforward unscrew the old, screw in the new?

Naw, it's easy. All you need is a 9/64 hex wrench. You can unscrew the old and screw on a new one in about a minute or so. I sometimes swap silver and black ones between hilts.

Sweet! I have a set with all sizes, so I should be fine with the key size. Just placed the order for my wheel. Glad to know it's actually as easy as it seemed XD

Yeah, it's really simple. I have one of those sets with the different sizes too, and I just picked up a metric set recently too, so that I'm prepared for just about everything. Cool

Yup! I need to be taking pics with it soon for one of my Saber Guild Submissions, and I don't want to end up not having it when it's time for the shoot
