Model CV-10 programmable orbital vibration welder incorporates a proven electromagnetic drive to create relative motion between two thermoplastic parts. This constant-velocity motion generates heat, raising the material temperature at the joint to its melting point. The motion stops after sufficient material is melted. The plastic then solidifies and forms a permanent bond. The orbital welding process provides greater capabilities in designing plastic parts. An elliptical path can be set at any angle.
A make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
