Battle Ready Blade Removal
So we've had some trouble with people trying to improperly remove the blades of their battle ready FX when the original saber was a removable blade model. So here we are going to explain the correct way to do this. This applies to the Obi-Wan and Kit-Fisto models.
First, the standard removable blade FX have their blade socket attached to the blade with a series of pogo-pins at the bottom to enable the circuit. You can see this below:
In this case we are using the Obi-Wan with removable blade. As you can see, the entire blade socket comes with the blade. However, if you have a battle ready model and you remove the blade and it looks like this, you've basically just trashed your saber.
So a major difference between the removable blade model and our Battle Ready models is the set-screw as seen in the picture below:
This set-screw is what holds the blade and the blade socket in. So, for a quick step-by-step on removing your battle ready blade.
1. Loosen but do not remove the set-screw. Also, do not remove the emitter as you would with the removable blade FX
2. Remove the blade. If it's stuck you may have to adjust the set-screw and maybe give the blade a little bit of a twist (they stick a little from time to time but all battle ready blades are removable and are only held in by the set screw and a little bit of compression from the blade socket)
3. At this point you can unscrew the emitter and insert the emitter plug to give the saber a more finished look
4. While you're at it, don't forget to tighten down the set-screw
This will give your saber the "finished" look for costuming and such. To reinsert the blade just follow this in reverse.
