Built with an emitter of a sink drain flange, PVC ring, candle holder cup, and a small flashlight reflector for the interior. The forward grip is fabricated from rings cut from a PVC extension pipe mounted on 1" pipe and dressed with HVAC tape. The whole thing is held together with a threaded tube used to assemble lamps.

The forward grip has been rebuilt with washing machine drain hose and epoxy putty. The pommel has also been swapped out.

The handmade clamp has been dressed with HVAC tape for a cleaner appearance and the lever has been replaced. The fake Covertec button is an axle cap nut and a finish washer.

I agree, that made a huge difference!

Tell us more about the homemade clamp, that looks really good!

Thanks, while the emitter's size was dictated by the parts used, and ended up a little big. But overall it ended up being one of my better looking builds.

The clamp? Simply, it's a piece of sheet metal with bends and holes in the right places. The bars are 1/4" styrene covered with HVAC tape. The lever is fashioned out of sheet metal and mounted on a Molly bolt swivel and held in place with a 1" #6 flat head machine screw. And of course it has the requisite 1/2" Mylar tape.

Good stuff. I bet that would be used as a prop today. It looks the part and would fit in a film!
