    I took off the resin hose attachment pieces on the FP ROTJ gauntlet intending to replace it with metal. I used the tutorial to make metal ones, but I'm finding they are too big and I misplaced the resin pieces. Can anyone measure the resin pieces and LMK so I can build them the proper size.

    what do you need measured? I have mine out working on them.. are you talking about what would look like the nuts or the piece that is sticking out.

    yes. I need to know what size they are. There is a nipple, an airhose connector and a nut at the end that make up the hose connector.

    I'll go ahead and measure what you need tonight after work and post for you. I know I used a 3/8 inner diameter hose and a 5/8 outer for mine and they fit perfect.

    Thanks for Answering my question. I was using the 1/4 used in the tutorial, so it's too big. Back to the drawing board. I'll have to try the 3/8 then.

    I just measured it with a ruler and that's what I get. I went from flat side of the nut to flat side to get the measurement. It does make sense also considering I am using a 3/8th's inner diameter hose to connect them.

    How about the size of the tubes themselves? Are those tubes for air compressors?

    No I used after searching here 3/8th inner diameter 5/8th outer. You can buy it at home depot. Ask for PVC braided tubing.
