Just because I happened to see it today:

Did you know that the original "Star Wars" lightsaber was made using antique camera parts? The prop was constructed by John Stears from an old three-cell Graflex flashgun. A black grip was added and the circular bulb housing was removed, but little else was changed to create the lightsaber prop.

The prop saw use in both Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back.
