After some research I discovered what one of the actual items
as used on the ANH Interrogator droid.


A couple pics of the actual prop...






Couple pics of the found item...





I haven't been able to find any mention of it.
Is this old news?


I believe that this as well as the piece on the backside of the droid
were/are the only two pieces remaining to be identified.

Rabbi Tuckman: I am Rabbi Tuckman, purveyor of sacramental wine and mohel extraordinaire.
Robin Hood: What's a moyel?
Rabbi Tuckman: A mohel is very important. He performs circumcisions.
Robin Hood: What, pray tell, is a circumcision?
Rabbi Tuckman: It's the latest craze. The ladies love it.
Achoo: I'll take one.
Little John: I'll take two.
Robin Hood: I'm game, how's it done?
Rabbi Tuckman: [pulls out a carrot and a miniature guillotine, and sticks the end of the carrot into the hole] I take my machine here, I take your little thing, I put it through this hole, and then,
[releases the blade, cutting the end off the carrot]
Rabbi Tuckman: I nip the tip.
Little John: I changed my mind.
Achoo: I forgot, I already got one.

:p

Ouch. Well aren't there several gynecological instruments on it that were identified as well? I guess it's only fair.

Now we know what went on in that interrogation room.

Droid: Do you know what this is?

Solo: I think so. What would you like to know?

Not a circumcision tool.
I also thought that at first.

But, it's intended purpose 'may be' just as painful.

They were phased out of production just over 30 years ago.
Some consider them antiques.

I'm currently looking for an online source and I am very close.

Stay tuned....
