    Bronze EE-3 with light and sound by Blater Core V4

    Hey bountyhunters !

    I just want to show of my new trooping toy ^^

    I had the luck to grab one of Hand Schaub´s bronze webleys here in europe and since i always wanted an metal version of my blaster
    i taken the chance to build an new one for my own.
    My old EE-3 version i swapped with the bronze Webley.

    some specs :

    light and sound comes from the Blaster Core V4 soundboard ( plecterlabs.com )
    resin/metal mix parts are from sidewinder
    bronze webley from Hand Schaub
    real molex connectors
    real woodstock
    rifle sling from 99cent taco
    2x 18650 Li-Ion Batterys for 7,4 V
    36mm bass speaker
    tri rebel main LED
    6 led bargraph

    Here´s the vid of it :




    Hope you like it and if someone is interested to get and soundupgrade on his blaster here in europe let me know

    Thanks a lot to all guys make such an build possible and thanks for watching !

    and here some infos for you to learn more about such an build !

    One the metal piece you see the High power LED
    in the tube behind the speaker is the soundboard, recharge port , switches, rumble motor and the bargraph
    p1090088-jpg

    the front pipe houses the AUX button, LED and the batterys
    p1090091-jpg

    p1100094-jpg

    And for those who thinks about to build one on their own
    here is the manual for the soundboard to learn how to install all the electronics
    ( select the Blaster Core V4 PDF )
    Plecter Labs - Articles - Manuals&Support

    This manual is perfect to learn and to know what electronic components you have to buy !

    this parts you need :

    10 $ speaker ( 8ohm 3W )
    10 $ wires , resistors, 2,1 mm recharge port, shrink tube and so on ...
    5 $ switches( AUX , MAIN , single auto mode , on off )
    5 $ bargraph
    35 $ Tri rebel RGB High Power LED
    100 $ Blaster Core V4 soundboard
    17 $ 2x protected 18650 Li-Ion batterys
    5 $ for each soundfont, just shoot me an PM !
    If you want all 6 fonts ive made i make you an special bundle price for 20 $ (fonts are, Deckard blade runner, Alien 2 pulse rifle, Half Life2
    Dead Space Plasma Cutter, Predator and of course the EE-3 font )
    5 $ rumble motor
    25 $ Li-Ion smart charger
    20 $ full metal trigger from the Indy webley revolver

    that would be around 237 $ just for the parts

    for you guys in US the customsabershop is the best option because you get all parts you need in one order !

    About the bronze webley, in fact it is hollow its no big deal to get all components in but the real problem is the trigger.
    You must cut off the static one and bore an opening to get an working replacement trigger in.
    You can buy an full metal trigger like the one from the Indiana Jones Webley revolver, wich are very easy to get in US.
    The metal gets very thin at this area but the bronze is very strong so you never bend or break it with pressure by hand.

    Or you let it like it is and place an microswitch anywhere near the trigger. (never an option for me)

    and now start reading the manual to get your poject started

    I also would know some guys in US who could to an conversion for you. Just ask me if you are interested !

    That is really really cool. Can you give more details of the build up for those who might want to attempt this? I have a bronze webly as well and would love to do this.

    That is great...Think you should put a parts list for the sound upgrades up!!! How much would all the sound parts be in total?

    Blastercore ordered. See what you have done.

    That speaker sounds good. Could you tell me where you got it. I have seen these.

    2W Bass Speaker

    Do you think it would work.

    Custom saber shop is perfekt for you guys in US. There you can order all parts at once !
    There you get the right charger, LED, bass speaker, batterys. And dont forget to order the 2.1mm plug for the charger .
    I would first recomment to make an wiring diagram an calculate the resistors so you could order them too.

    i got my speaker on Ebay :

    VECO Full Range Mini Speaker, 8OHM, 3W, 100hz to 20KHz, 40mm x 18mm, 85dB Hz KHz | eBay

    It has the right diameter to fit inside the bronze webley and has an much better sound.

    Amazing, dude! I love it! Erv' makes the BEST soundboards. I have his Crystal Focus sabercore boards in all of my custom lightsabers. I will be ordering one of his Blastercores for my EE3 (when I pick one up). I'm sooo impressed with your work.

    Erv´ is the man ! You are right
    He told me that he plans to release an cheaper BC board with only one soundbank and smaller features for 55 $ in the next half year or so.
    So if someone plans an cheap conversion a bit patience would be smart.

    I know I'm going to want to learn how to do the trigger conversion since I just purchased a bronze Webley. I contacted Erv' this morning to see when the next round of BCs will be coming out. Any help would be appreciated.

    Ok, first cut off the bronze trigger with an jigsaw. Then but the grib piece in an vice and begin to drill holes from the upside .
    Start with small size and get bigger till you reached the diameter you need for the trigger. Make as many holes you need one after another.
    Always take the new trigger and hold it in position to get an idea how much space it needs to work.
    If the opening its big enough you have to take an file to get an even surface on the sides and to remove all upstanding metal.

    I know without any pics its not an really good advice but i hope it helps a bit.

    i'm not too electronic savvy and was looking for someone who has already made one of these kits. I don't have a functional webley but if they've made a kit that will fit into the barrel and activate with a small switch near the trigger, that would be awesome.

    Thanks RedArc. That can get me started. Do you have a link for where I can source the correct replacement trigger? Thank you.
