    All the non-human droids (R2, Treadwell, 2-1B, EV-9D9, even the Imperial probe droid) in Star Wars ep 4, 5, and 6 had thin arm parts. What was used for them?

    Nobody knows or has a guess?

    as far as I know for the old movies they salvaged a lot
    of parts from aircraft, and engines.

    we had a close up view of some of R2's arms at CIII
    and are still looking for something compatibale.

    I thought Don said R2 was 100% custom machined. Less the coin return and HP and coin slots. Everything else was milled.

    All the arms on all the droids were custom machined?.? That seems like a huge amount of work for something so not-the-focus of attention.

    What about the ones in the visual dictionary?

    One of the Treadwell's arms seem to be from swing arm lamps. Probably with bits added on here and there.
