look at the picture, in the clamp, is the connectors
the lightsaber handle is made from a 3 cell graflex camera flash gun, a secoind button was added almost directly below the first, a strip of chrome mylar tape (in the bueaty props they had textured tape but in that pic it isnt textured) soemthing like that was taped on the clamp to cover up the word graflex, and the prop community isnt sure of what the grips were. some people belive they were like t-tracks for like cubbards, or windhsield wipers for a tank.... o ya and the dring at the bottom, was a Linhof-Kobold metal plate thing, flipped over, put a d ring inside, and rivited down.
and in the clamp was put a hp44 bus connector car
you can read all about it and the variations and such at this awesome site.
now dont get this confused with the A New Hope Model, the ANH model had a calculator led bubbles things in the clamp, a single hole dring, and a glass eye where the second button is on the Empire Strikes Back version.
this is the a new hope saber
but i want to know where can i find something like that hp44 bus connector thing that they used is ESB.
these are the drings of ESB, from left to right, not flipped and screwed down, flipped and rivited down
ALRIGHT, that was alot of typing and probaly bored you.
but my basic question is where can i find something like that hp44 bus connector thing that they used is ESB?
