Jedi High Council member Adi Gallia proudly wears this lightsaber at her side.

Like most of the lightsabers, this one is constructed of a resin casting of a custom machined shaft, painted silver and assembled onto a 3/8" diameter steel rod. Each end of the prop was finished with metal found objects.

The lightsaber's blade emitter was probably made from a radial bearing retention or retainer ring, used around the collar of bike handlebars. An exact matching bearing has not yet been found. A second one was used again below two large metal fender washers (smaller washers were used in between the larger ones). Another fender washer (1 1/2" diameter) was inset in the top ring.

A clear LED light bar was mounted on the prop's side. The color of the light emitted from the LED is impossible to determine, but green seems likely since the Naboo N-1 starfighter cockpit utilized green LED light bars.

LED Light Bar

Located next to the light bar are two 5 mm LED's with chrome metal bezels (1 cm diameter). Further down the handle are two silver knobs.

On the very end of the prop is a round metal piece that has a nub surrounded by eight holes. This same part is used on many other props including the Jedi Testing Screen.

The round black piece on the handle is half of a system for attaching the saber to the Jedi's belt. The other half is a clip worn on the belt that the "knob" on the prop slides into with a simple downward action. By design, the prop remains free to pivot within the clip and is released simply by pressing the two arms on either side of the clip.
