    Shin tool help

    Hi guys, so I have made my shin tools from 'found' parts, but I can not find any details about the tool which is a rod, any one got any good photos or dims? I see it has a thicker cylinder to the bottom and a detailed top part. Any help would be good to finish my set off.

    Here is what I have right now.

    Wasn't it the stir stick that was the end of the tool with the holes in it?

    The stir stick was the 'survival knife' I kept the spine that you can see, I also opted to not add the other hole.

    Thanks for the help and photos, I think I will sculpt the detailed top part from milliput. Should be a quick job tomorrow.

    I thought the “jet pack adjustment tool” was made for the visual dictionary (like A LOT of the props in those books) and was never confirmed as being screen used.

    Ya, what Jon said...

    I plan to omit that part, less work, I don't see it in the Bespin hallway pic, so I rather have it more "accurate"
