    Help identify a part

    Anyone know what sort of pieces were used for the ROTJ gauntlet flame thrower? (left hand)
    I've been through Menards and Home Depot looking for something close and I'm just not happy with what I've found.

    Any tips would be much appreciated.

    I just used some pieces of copper plumbing tube for mine. Worked great. They sell it in a bunch of different sizes.

    somewhere on there there's a thread that suggests coaxial cable ends. i forget the size, but if you go to radio shack and look at the crimp on coax connectors you should find something decent.

    Isn't it some coax connector?

    "I also recommend replacing the flamethrower nozzels (on left gauntlet) with Radio Shack's 'Premium PL-259 UHF-Type Coaxial Connectors'" - TK-409

    I'm also using Radio Shack's "Premium PL-259 UHF-Type Coaxial Connectors". I saw TK-409 and Bobamaker used them for their flamethrower nozzles. They look close enough and the price is right... considering you get 2 in a pack.

    That's what I used as well. They look great to me.
