    if you know the width of that part on the shot i'd half the width and look for that as it looks quite spread

    I do not think it's metal braid as it doesn't look even close. I would bet it's corrugated aluminium tube. Just like this:

    No, its a metal braided cord you can see the weave pattern. It looks like they took the metal braided cord, cut it open and flattened it out.

    The picture he has posted is a RotS reveal, which is not the same as the RotJ reveal. RotJ reveal had the braided metal, RotS has corrugated aluminium tube.

    I am not all that familiar with corrugated aluminum. All the corrugated aluminum that I have seen have a uniform pattern and the picture of the prop looks more like an alternating pattern. Hense why I made my comment. :$

    You are more well informed than I ;)

    It does look like braided tubing, but with a finer pattern than the RotJ stuff. I have never taken the time to look for RotS parts I'm afraid.

    Thanks guys...right its from the ROTS-Reveal that I also build next to my ROTJ one.
    About the part:But nothing has the exact same pattern.And I think the edges are not cutted.

    Oh and if you know other parts from the lower jaw of the ROTS post them here please!:)

    Sorry for the confusion guys, that bottom pic reminds me of the stuff we use to wrap all the wiring harnesses and plumbing near turbo setups, heat wrap is what we call it, looks like this

    I originally thought it looked like heat shielding too... but I think halliwax is onto something with the batter grounding strap. Its a lot closer to the right size to fit in the mask...

    It could be something like the..I also think that it was in a stripe because both fine edges are the same on every side.Not cutted in a half or something.

    It looks like window screen. The black fabric-like type as opposed to the old school metal window screen type.

    You can also try searching for decorative brass mesh. It comes in several different styles and some websites have different types of screens such as punched metal.
