Speaking of the Romans conversions....
What I'm getting: - Roman's hilt - Solo's blade holder - Either Vader's or Darth Ryo's Master Chassis (can't decide. but loving Ryo's mostly metal set-up) - Wanawanga ESB Kit - Probably VV 7/8 blade, unless better recommendations
Questions: - What type of momentary switch will I need to put under the red button and whats the install on that like? - What do I use for blade retention? - Can I leave the clamp attached to the top half of the hilt while retaining the L-twist disassembly. I ask because I will be using the clamp card for Secondary Main Power and an aux - Whats the best TriCree for ESB? BBW, RbBW or RGB ( I do love my having the option of any color for poops and giggles, also because Ill be wiring the crystal to reflect the main blade.) - Is a CF worth it for this run or just go PRIZM?
I looked at the partsofsw link and that made some choices harder. Such as which ESB hilt I wanted...... I'm thinking rivets/No upper screws, full two red buttons, chrome mylar, no tab, rivet kobold d-ring. Sort of a mix between Hoth and Bespin (pre-encounter). Suggestions?

Yes the clamp can remain although it will hide some of your chassis and most likely crystal chamber.
The rest is up to you. Everyone has their favorite variant of the ESB. I've changed one over the years from glass eye to two red buttons. I have wannawangas t track for my blaster and love it. For the Graflex though I prefer rubber.
The switch is use is a very small switch from Mauser. I don't have the part number on me. Someone else might chime in on that.

is there a way to wire the second red button(bottom) to the board using the SH holder? I dont know if there is a wire channel built in for that. I dont want to use the side pin thing that VV uses on there flex. I want to keep the outside as stock as possible.

Well I already bought the SH one so I guess we'all have to see. There was hardly any videos or pictures of it but I was strongly recommended it. That would suck if I couldn't even put a red button there.

Another question! haha I got my hands on a vintage and noticed that when the clamp is completely secured (twisted all the way closed), it's not at a 90 degree angle like it's supposed to be. is that just a normal thing i'll have to keep adjusting or is there a fix for that?

It was designed to be a camera flash not a lightsaber. The camera flash didn't need an alignment. When the prop builders designed the saber they most likely tweeked it until they achieved the look they wanted.
vargose: Verso $45, Sabercore $30, DIYino $30, Golden Harvest $60, Proffie $45, CFX $85. Do you remember when the days when the Crystal focus was $150? Gotta love the sheer availability of options now.
