    So I ask my brother about the lathe we were going to buy and he tells me he paid for it 2 years ago. We picked it up and I'm redoing what started. I'm liking the machined parts.

    As I machined more parts, I began to dislike the pvc/abs base plate. Scrapped and made it from aluminum. The tip is too small, but I got worn out on the project for now.

    Both Gauntlets more or less completed. Rocket needs correct paint job.

    I recently saw a new flame thrower design here on TDH that appears to be the most accurate yet. It includes a clear plastic part on one rod. Anyone know where this is? I can't find it.

    Repainted the rocket. I had it painted as the ROTJ version. Made a new flame thrower nozzle on the lathe out of a plexiglass rod. Made some extras. Most have blemishes. Will fit over a 1/4 inch rod. PM if interested. I do not plan on making any more. It was attached with clear silicone.
