***EDIT Aug 28, 2015***

These will be for sale in the PROJECTS section of Classifieds later today if anyone is interested :thumbsup

They won't be in the Junk Yard because they are still getting chromed.

***ORIGINAL***

I finally got lucky!!

First, I had to outbid someone (probably a member here), but I scored two (2)!!

Then, the same day, I contacted someone about the larger tub handles and asked if they had the matching sink taps. They said yes, AND said they had another complete sink/tub set... do I want them?

YES!!! Yes, I do!!!

So I'm expecting two (2) correct taps from the auction, and four (4) correct taps from the 'tub listing'. Packages show up Tuesday and yesterday...

I got my first two (2), sweet!! Toss the larger tub taps in a junk box.

Then I open the other box yesterday and search for four (4) smaller, correct taps. I find a couple smaller correct taps, then a larger tub tap (toss that one in the junk box)... then find the last two (2) correct taps...

So I've now increased my collection by six (6) sink knobs!!! BUT wait...

I still have that box with three (3) larger, incorrect tub taps and I'm about to toss them... But they are wrapped in paper, and yes, I recycle... so I begin to open them. First one was the larger tub tap. The next one feels smaller... lo and behold!!! It's another sink knob!!! Then I get excited and rush to grab the other... same thing, feels smaller... BOOM! Another sink knob!!

I wound up with eight (8) more sink knobs in my collection in two days!! :cool

This is the first time I really feel like I got lucky with a prop hunt!!! Thank the Maker!! :)

Nice it brings back memories of when I had six in one hit :) I still have a few of them three on my original parts sabers and one for a display collection of parts.

very cool find! what did the original ANH saber have H or C? i recently hit up a HUGE local factory filled with antique tubs and sinks, i went through all of them had to be over 500 tubs and i didnt find one hand wheel... now knowing that the came in clear, im going to have to go hit them back up i was looking for chrome.

So what's the plan? Chrome them?

Or is there a use for non chromed I'm not aware of....?

LOL that was me, ya lucky bastard!!! Great score, man. I'm glad it was you! I just wish I had know. It was you and we wouldn't have driven the price up...although for a haul like that, you got them for a song! THE song of ALL songs!

Re: LUCKY SCORE!!! Obi-Wan ANH Sink Knobs!!!

Thanks guys! I haven't stopped messing with them since yesterday. Lining them up side by side. Checking they all fit my real booster... they do. Flipping the cubes. Lining them up with flipped cubes... :lol :lol :lol

what did the original ANH saber have H or C?
I don't believe anyone really knows, but I like to think it was cold since that would be the blue. :thumbsup

So what's the plan? Chrome them?
Yes sir, I plan on chroming them. :cool

LOL that was me, ya lucky bastard!!! Great score, man. I'm glad it was you! I just wish I had know. It was you and we wouldn't have driven the price up...although for a haul like that, you got them for a song! THE song of ALL songs!
Sorry! Well, kinda sorry! ;) The price was my fault for bidding 15 seconds before the auction ended. I just wasn't sure I was logged in, and didn't want to snipe at 1 second only to find out I wasn't logged in. I'll make sure you get one when they are chromed if you still need one. :cheers

So... were the originals found clear and then chromed, or are there just two (or more) variants?

Before your luck runs out set your sites on some RR engines! I wanna see 8 engines on your workshop floor by the beginning of next week :D
Keep thinking about the one in Texas. When is that going to happen?:)

Nice score Roman!

Haha! It was a three way battle! Damn, we could've each gone in for a nickel and come up with an extra pair. Plus the bath tub wheels with a larger grenade for a HULK sized OB1!
