So, as with most found parts I wanted to show gutting and concerting another prop part. I know, I mostly use hand tools and a variety of small power tools so we’ll see how this goes.
this is not the original found part, it’s a newly made and close part, those of you on the OT Lightsaber Blade thread know the story
anyway, it came. Here is the first look.
18 mm at the base and 12.3 mm at the tip
It is stiff and mildly flexible. Seems to rattle inside, it doesn’t have the black material inside mostly just the white body and whatever I find when I cut this open. and the tip is hollow, which I’ve seen on some OT blades. The core antenna doesn’t reach all the way to the tip. I want to see if I can disassemble the socket first, before just chopping it.
It seems to be about 4 Graflexes long..
49 1/2” with the socket...
45 3/4 for the exposed fiberglass
