BrightFett - I've got the "Jetpack Adjustment Tool" and "Survival Knife" which are cast in solid resin and are from Man of War Studios. (See the Cargo Hold for them)

Hello brightfett! Welcome to the forums. Just alittle fyi. This type of post should be a for sale/wanted post in the cargo hold. As for shin tools, Buda fett suggested the real screen used shin tools. Funky red and irongladiator suggested reproduced shin tools. Totally your preference. As for wookie braids and girth belt hit up woodman here on the forums. Ankle spats should be attached to your flight suit already. If not hit up arkady here in the forums. If you looking for a bucket kit hit up wastedfett. For a completed bucket, keep an eye out for buckets in the cargo hold, someone will post one eventually fairy priced. Good luck!

Looking for some additional information on the Anti-Security Blade. The ESB CRL says level 2 requires the white/grey piece to be made from the lower section of a Paterson squeegee. Is this the same type of squeegee that the Sonic Beam weapon is made from or something else?
 
sandtrooper8867 - I do believe this is what they are talking about....

I'm doing a ROTJ build and this is what I intend on doing. MachineCraft has some really good looking Shin Tool Rods too.

So for about $80.00 and some Airbrush time I can build the shin tools.

To the experts, If I'm incorrect in this please feel free to correct me.

Thanks for the replies! So only need to buy one squeegee then. I already have the gaffers tape from another project. ;)
I am going to do a ESB hero suit, so any consensus on the paint colors needed for the tools? I am a newb so still learning about the bewildering details on the costumes.
 
Its more like gaffers tape
I was gonna say I didn't think it was electrical tape either. I got this stuff called "Gorilla Tape" (Home Depot) - now whether or not this is what is known as "Gaffers Tape", yeah I'm not sure, but it looked the part, so I got it.

In addition, you'd probably wanna pick up some JB Weld to get the two metal rods to stick together and not solely reply on the tape for the bonding of the two metal rods. Its what I intend on doing anyway.

There is different types of Gaffer tape. What you posted is what is considered duct tape, which is polythene based. What F4R mentioned sports tape is different from gaffer tape. Sports tape is cotton based or latex based. Or I can be wrong? or is it the same thing? lol edit.

Gaffer tape is cotton based, it has the same texture as sports tape and is usually matte in appearance. Gorilla tape is duct tape and will probably have a shine to it and a different texture.
 
zemzero - Yep, I actually never took the wrapping off of that Gorilla Tape off till yesterday and noticed it had a sheen to it. One of those things if you don't know till you get the wrapper off it. I'll be on the hunt now for that matte tape. A shame too - cause it did have that look to it. Oh well, only was $3.00, and I'll probably use it for other stuff around the house.

Thanks,

I love how this thread has evolved (or derailed? Depends who you ask, I guess) into a discussion about tape :D
