    Looking for Two Greeblies for ESB Blaster

    Where can I find the two round circled rings that go behind the piston type greeblie. To be accurate,I saw them on gonzo fetts blaster,and most guys here don't have those two round pieces behind the piston greeblies. Anybody have a set or where I can get some.Any info will be helpful.


    Thanks

    Send a PM to Asok.

    He's got the visible V8 model kit and could mold you up a couple. That is if you don't mind resin copies.

    Are you referring to the fender washers that go under the v-8 parts?

    I am working on that part and hoping to get them made this weekend. I had to go buy a machine to put the mold in a vacuum to try and get it to come out right. The problem is that the part is very small. Saturday is my day to do castings.

    Re: Looking for Two Greeblies for ESB Blaster

    How many are needed for each blaster and does anybody have a picture?

    This is what I have so far. With the part so small, there are so air holes in it. They will need to be trimmed. The black on is just dyed black. The silver one's are cold cast .aluminum.

    I am looking for a pic now, 2 are needed for each blaster, on each side above the trigger, under the v-8 connecting rod.

    Does anyone have any proof that this is, in fact, the correct found part? I probably missed it somewhere.

    I'd like to second what SingleSeat asked--how do we know for sure that this is the part under the V-8 rod? I probably missed it too, but I'm curious how this was decided upon. Thanks!

    The part was confirmed awhile back on the RPF.
    Pics of the ESB blaster show a bit more detail on the piece than just a plain fender washer. The V8 part matches perfectly and works better than a washer since it's thicker.

    BTW - I've never seen anything prove that there are 2 connecting rods on the ESB blaster. I'm still planning to just use one on the right side. Makes it looks like a safety lever that way.

    I had heard that as well. It was presumed that the one on the left was "possibly" broken off during the filming of ESB.

    It's believable, yet, even so, I'd like to see the evidence to prove this once and for all.

    That's cool, but I was talking about pics of the real prop. I can't seem to find any either that are the smoking gun for this part.
