    As with the gauntlet darts, I had a chance to photograph the jet pack adjustment knob. This piece is TINY!

    Thanks for the pic Art Andrews. It looks like mine is pretty close. I just need the hole on top and bigger taper on the bottom part.

    Yes, I have one. It's the saber at the bottom. I bought it before I knew more about Graflex tubes.

    ok, found some of the real mitchell pieces. located a retailer that can get some from his wholesaler who bought old overstock from the manufacturer. main difference is that the base is a bit thicker, needs to be milled down, or as another member here has suggested could be sunk into the jet pack. what you see in the pic is what you can get. no need to buy the entire sweeper arm! if you are interested you can pm me and i will give whoever is interested an email contact of the retailer. before i posted this i made sure that they will deal with overseas customers, as the retailer is located in germany and has been selling high end audio equipment for decades. i do not participate in the deals, i will not negotiate anything, i'm not getting a cut of what you pay, you can have the contact email the rest is up between you guys (and gals)and the retailer. i'm posting this cause i don't like to hold back stuff.
    and just to let you know in advance, no other base is available, just the one you see. there is no more "needles/darts" or anything else left, just the base.
    and i'm sure it won't even be near 250 bucks.

    here's another pic with the screw taken off. the tube is a few mm off in height from seven's draving. but not by much. looking at the pre pro blaster it seems to be the same height though.

    like i said, the base needs to be milled down, and the tube height is off a few mm in height. everything else is a match from the drawing.

    I took a picture of one of the found parts sitting next to TK7602's milled piece last weekend when Art brought it with him to our photo shoot. I'll post the picture up tonight so you can see it. TK7602 will have to say where the milled piece is from since I have no idea. My Russ Rep milled piece looks to be a bit different than his.

    As you can see, the real one is larger than the psberetta/serenity machined piece. I wish I had thought to bring my pack to compare it to the Russ-Rep one.

    we can compare yours to mine, and then scale the pics so that they are all proportional.

    Question, can we get a comparison shot of the original piece next to the newer, thick base part? the tube appears thicker and shorter than the original, but that could just be tricksy photography

    Hey! Check this out... while combing for more info about this turntable, I stumbled across this... take a look at this picture! This is horizontal piece is a part from the shin tools! If I remember correct the "anti-security blade" the two rods taped together to the RC squeegee. Look for yourselves

    It's close, but not exact
    there should be 2 indentations on the non-knurled end
