    Hey guys,
    I have an original vintage "t-lever" part on it's way to me and I'm looking for any other original HIC greeblie.

    I'm sure people here have them in their stash .. I can even borrow and compensate for the trouble if you want to keep them!

    From what I got around, they are:
    - Bronica Waist Level Finder
    - Transcriptor/ Michell sweeparms
    - T-Lever
    - V8 engine parts
    - 2.75"/70mm C-C Wire Pull

    I don't know all the detail .. I've never been able to find that info anywhere!

    Hit me with what you've got! My goal is to mold them and offer them along with my panels since I've been asked quite often.

    Cheers,
    Al

    To be honest, I don't even know .. I'm looking at pictures of this on google and can't even recognize the part!!!I figure I'm not looking at the right thing!

    Also, I'm looking for the handles in chrome if possible, we don't have 2-3/4 or 70mm here .. only 3" or 77mm!

    What country do you live in?
    I searched Walmart here in the US and found these:

    It says they are 2.75 Inch brushed Chrome: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Smedbo-Beslagsboden-2.75-Bar-Pull/39134049

    I don't know if they come with hardware (the screws) or not (they probably do), but they are priced at $38 USD plus $4.99 shipping to me (you can see by clicking the link).

    I think these look a bit too thick to be the correct hero panel handles.

    I'm in Canada, and I think you're right, they do look very thick although the sizing is good!

    *, that's really expensive though, I can find 3" everywhere in chrome for as low as 5$ .. nothing 2-3/4" though!!!

    I have seen the 2.75" on eBay before but they aren't there right now. I'd keep looking there, because if I recall, they were much less expensive then too.
    Ill check the hardware store next time I go.

    Anyone who can find them for a good price, I'm willing to buy 2!

    After that, I'll mold them and offer them along with all the greeglies I got!

    How about this:
    image.jpg

    Auction ID: 310117136478

    It's only $6.95 USD plus shipping. I think maybe both of these handles in the this pic and the one earlier seem thicker because the overall handle isn't as wide.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Although the one in this last picture doesn't seem nearly as thick as the one up top.

    The shipping price on these things is ridiculous .. I might just bit the bullet and get a set. Will cost around 30$ Why can't they ship in an envelop and be done with it!
    First post update with proper search name for those handles.

    The two silver knurled knobs on the hero panel are from the Michell sweeparm, which is also the source for various parts used on Boba Fett (Toe spikes, gauntlet darts, backpack greeblie and Supertrooper blaster muzzle)

    Hey guys,
    I just added the newly found Bronica Waist Level Finder to the first post. Unfortunately, I couldn't get one before everyone bought them for their personal use. So I'm now looking to borrow one to mold and offer it. If you have one, please contact me so we can talk!
