    Obi wan Real Parts assembly

    Cool, what diameter rod is that? Mine was a fine thread and thin so I found a small metal sleeve that I put where the grenade stem is. I prevents the rod from moving and keeps the BP centered. Can you screw transistors into that clamp spacer? If not, how do people add them? Mine will...

    Obi wan Real Parts assembly

    How are people putting theirs together? Here's how I did mine. I machined the brass piece at the front and the aluminum spacer. It all pressure fits together. The sink knob pressure fits on the booster threads as well. My sink knob was gutted when they removed it so I don't have the small square...

    The 'Ideal' Obi ANH Derwent Interconnect Replica

    Re: The 'Ideal' Obi ANH Derwent Interconnect Replica I'm sure it's probably pricey! Many years ago I got some paperwork from Rolls Royce that specifically said Inconel and N.S. was used on one BP and N.S. and N.S. was used on the other two. Not sure what alloy the N.S. is but it's something...

    The inconel Obi saber emitter...

    You are correct. I mentioned that. There are 3 versions of the BP. Only one had an inner part made of Inconel.

    The 'Ideal' Obi ANH Derwent Interconnect Replica

    Re: The 'Ideal' Obi ANH Derwent Interconnect Replica There are 3 versions of the Balance Pipe. Only one of them had an Inconel inner part. I believe the other 2 were Nickle Stainless. None of the Outer parts were Inconel either, they were all Nickle stainless.

    Thanks. I made it up as I went. I have to make another for my replica but that's probably it. The threading is for a 1/4 20 rod. Not sure what any of the other adapters are.

    Finally had a chance to assemble it. This is a rough test fit pic. I machined an adapter for the Balance Pipe yesterday out of brass with 2 o-rings so it won't wobble and fit tight. Test fitting I also machined an aluminum spacer. I need to tap some transistor holes next.

    I wish! I traded the last extra one I had for the grenade.

    I had a box of them at one point. As far as I know I was the first person to find a real one after the discovery.
