Hey guys!

For sale are 4 of my balance pipe to Hales adapters. This is what I use on my own saber to hold the pieces together. It allows for a close fit with the balance pipe, but allows for some variation in inner diameter of the balance pipe, be it replica or original. This is best for use with a spacer like Romans holding the Hales and booster together, as I don't use a threaded rod all the way through. That being said these are 3/8 16 rods, and the 'cones' are tapped for that thread, so you could use the cone with a threaded rod. I used some painters tape (you could use packing tape too) to wrap the cone a few times, making the fit to the balance pipe snug but still easy to remove.

You get what is shown in the photos, a nut, two nylon washers to protect the vindvane neck, a threaded rod section, and a 'cone' based on some reviewing of the 4k Disney film. The materials except for the washers are all vintage stock from the early 70's, including the aluminum I turned to make the cones. It came from my mentors old machine shop that had sat unloved since he stopped being a machinist.

I'd prefer to ship within the US but if you're international send me a message and we can sort out how to get one of these to you! They are 75 a piece shipped within the US.

Update!
I have three available now. The one with the blue nut was on my saber but I made a new one for myself.

Two of the newer style available and a single classic cone available. All the same price.
