I got it from Radio Shack. It is a SPST Micromini Toggle Switch. Part #275-0624

Instructions

1. Print
2. Assemble (not the heroes)
3. ???
4. Take over the world

I printed the staff with ABS, 2 shells, 0.2 layer height, and 10% infill. Some pieces do require support. Included is the staff sliced to fit a Makerbot Replicator in .stl files (may not be oriented for minimal support). If you need to slice it differently, I've also included the .skp file with the original designs in it. All names referenced below should match the .stl file names.

Note: Pieces have small holes for short segments of ~1.7mm filament. These are used for test fitting and alignment for gluing.

If you do not own a 3d printer, the design files should allow you to make your own scepter out of wood or other carvable material. Much of the process after cutting out the segments will be the same.

Could you post a new Instruction link? blog not found. And also the zip file seems to be broken.. but that may just be my download?

GlitchTech on Jan 8, 2014 said:

Oops. I'll update that link now.

As to the download, that is generated by Thingiverse. I'll drop a support ticket.

Just curious, what's the print and build time on this? I just was loki this year and this would be much more fun for next year if I have a head start on printing! great project by the way!

Oh, and I am working on an upgraded scepter which should be easier to assemble and includes a spot for a small Arduino for fancy LED action in the gem.

The total print time for me was just over 34 hours (including raft) on my Replicator. It took just under 500g (including raft) of ABS. The whole finishing process took me around 2.5 hours with another hour for assembly (plus glue dry time). Electronics were simple and took maybe 30-40 minutes? Top it off with paint for another 3 hours plus dry time.

So in all around 40-45 hours plus drying time for glues and paints.
