Us movie folks frequently rip gaffers tape into different widths for whatever the situation requires, but almost exclusively use 2" gaff.

Except the camera folks, they're weird.
Haha, thank you! why do you think they'd make the top up out of thin strips?

This gives me chance to ask something that's been annoying me for a long time. What does 1970's gaffa tape look like close up? All the stuff I come across to buy is nasty plastic looking stuff, but my impression is that 1970's is fabric. If anyone also knows where I can get this in the UK would be much appreciated.

Can anyone with better res access tell me what is on the bottom of the ESB Graflex stunts? Is a Kobold clip there?

I thought so too... some of these screencaps make it seem like it's smaller than a kobold clip. Of course, this is streaming disneyplus which is lower quality lol

It just doesn't seem like a real kobold clip. Hmm.

I can't tell you what's going on down there but I took some screenshots for good measure:

^ Rectangular reflection, looks like a kobold clip here?

Seems to be the gaffered clamp saber as well.

Hope this helps!

Teecrooz showed me this and I thought of you right away

The photos I saw were much grainier then those you posted and I thought it was some kind of hand guard

Now it clearly looks like foil

Is it me? Or does this graflex look longer?

definitely does to me in that last picture. Like the bunny ears should be about where the red button is.

To me it looks like the whole upper tube is longer

The clamp would be too low

So strange...

What the heck is the chrome tape there for? Covering the giant black screws?

Aha! So it is foil. Thanks for posting these crisper stills!

It does look suspiciously longer, maybe an extension so Hamill didn't have to keep gripping it so close to the control box? The foil tape is probably to cover that extension, since they didn't seem to bother putting foil on the other bolted stunts.

Glad I’m not the only one who thinks that
