In building several props, I’ve come up with a list of parts I still need. If you have access to anything below or know a good place to purchase ’em, let me know? Some of these things are so scarce, they’ve been evading prop-builders for *years*.
Nycoil Banjo tips: part #55020 in the Nycoil catalogs. Nycoil doesn’t sell to private parties, only companies, and I haven’t been able to find a distributor who carries these things. Also, the modern version is nickel, not accurate for my purposes.
Alkon AQ68-P Connector
Foster Quick Connects. It’s really made up of two parts. The #B22-2 Plug, and the #2022 Socket.
Raytheon Crank Knob: Can you believe these things retail for 65 bucks and more? The one I need is 1-1/4″, and gray and black are both acceptable.
Paterson RC Print Squeegee (mfg part # 255) It’s 13 5/8” long by 3” wide.
Dental Expansion Screws: Made by Glenross. The correct style is the large screw, not the spring tension model.
CASIO MQ-1 Pocket Calculator:
Texas Instruments Exactra 20 calculator:
U.S. Divers/Aqua-Lung scuba tank harness called the KAM “EZ” PAK. Width: 2 3/16″
Length: 2 3/16″ Thickness : 1/2″
46 series Hengstler counter
Kobold camera flash
1972 Fire Extinguisher Dispersion Nozzle
Graflex 3-cell camera flash
The reflector dish isn’t necessary.
Paterson Chemical Stir Stick
Sterling Arms Mk4/L2A3 Submachine Gun (Doesn’t have to be functional at all, just intact!)
WWI British rifle grenade, the No. 3 Mk. 1
SPAS 12 Shotgun cage and pump handle (Yeah, I know, I’m dreamin’)
Remington M870 Shotgun parts
M1-A1 Thompson parts (Even Airsoft would work)
Beretta 92FS (Airsoft)
Redman Orbital scrubber/furniture polisher ’78
(I have less information about the items below)
Kango 426 Rotary-Hammer drill casing
“Hama” German slide viewer
Hama Release Timer
Jobo “Laboratory Lamp” minilight light meter (part number 6415)
It’s also for my own reference. Items in the list above composed props from Ghostbusters, Star Wars, and Aliens. Some are more obvious than others, ;K)
