Adam makes a lightsaber of his own design, machining a beautiful hilt of aluminum to encase around a neopixel-based Pixel Core electronics kit. From the ornate emitter shroud to the painstakingly knurled hand grip, this project is both a labor of love for Star Wars and also a milestone in Adam's machining journey. The finished hilt is magnificent!

Thanks to Saberbay for providing the Pixel Core for this build! Find out more at (sign up for their mailing list to be notified when these become available)

Correction: When Adam mentions the manufacturer of the hilt at the beginning of the video, he means to say Saberbay. You can check out their line of hilts and saber components at
