Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Custom Beat Saber Hilts!

Adam’s latest obsession is the VR music rhythm game Beat Saber, which he plays almost every day. To augment his immersion and play ability, Adam machines a pair of Beat Saber hilt mounts for the Oculus Quest controllers! And of course, making lightsaber hilts is something Adam has some experience with!

  1. You can also cut down on the heat and increase the concentricity by drilling a much smaller hole and then boring to final ID but I guess if you have a bit that size why not 🤣

  2. Hi Adam,

    I see that you are wearing your standard glasses while working on the lathe. Do you have prescription safety glasses? I know that would solve a lot of problems for me in my shop. Do you have a recommended supplier? Are there specifications that you look for?

    Thanks,

    Rachel
