These are two male Rolls Royce balance pipes. I'm told they come off and MK 8/9. The aren't accurate being they don't have the correct amount of holes, but they are real and not a replica so I'm pretty excited about that. I wanted to ask if anyone out there has knowledge on how to make these more accurate. I have a lathe so I could easily turn down the one with a bigger lip on it. I'm not sure how to get the bevel on the inside where the holes are located. I don't know that I have a proper tool to turn and carve the bevel. If anyone knows how to do that or has done it on a male version I'd love to hear about it. Any input is greatly appreciated. I will be using one of the two balance pipes on an Obi real parts build until I find a better replacement. I'll probably sell the other if at some point depending on how things go.

Hell, I’d use that to build a totally new, unique, one. I’d use one those balance pipes with the grenade section from AS Jedi hero with a GRAFLEX 3 cell lower. & maybe see about using an MPP clamp.
In any event, it’s a great find.

I'm still trying to decide if I should keep both, I bought both because I never see anything vintage like this for sale outside this forum. I should think about making something cool out of one, it's a fun idea.

There are a male and a female for sale on ebay for quite some time now. I personally would not buy something like that but thought I can share in case others are interested and didn't see them yet.
