    Hello.

    I am wanting to make my own hardware Vader ROTJ saber, and I'm starting with the main tube. I can order different wall thicknesses of metal tubing, and I don't know how thick to order. Can someone please tell me what the thickness of the wall of a Graflex flash is? 0.035", 0.049",0.065", or 0.120"? Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

    Hey there.

    Well I just got out the calipers and took a reading of my Graflex and it says 1.24 mm or 0.0490" for the thickness of the main tube.

    Hope this does it for you.

    Cheers,

    MJC.

    Where are you getting your tubing from?

    I have had a hard time tracking it down locally.

    Cantina_Dude - Awesome man, thanks for measuring.

    Boba_Frett - The two places I buy my tubing from are Ebay (GREAT prices on 1.25", 1.375", and 1.5" + lengths, search for "intercooler tube") and here:

    http://www.onlinemetals.com

    You can buy custom lengths from that place, and it's pretty cheap too. Thanks again.
