I saw a post from Cody comparing the potentially legit blueprint from the book to a behind the magic still suggesting it might be accurate and made an attempt at building a to-scale 3d model from the blueprint pic:

Bearing in mind the worm gear hob top section detail is just a rough approximation until I can get some more reference to that, I think it looks pretty decent but obviously the source material is at an angle and a little blurry. Some reference seems to show the pommel knob having flat sides but I don't have anything conclusive.

If anybody has Star Wars: The Blueprints and can get me a high res version of the blueprint it'd be great to redraw this more accurately.

I'm also planning on modelling up an accurate worm gear hob, preferably from the original part if anybody has a line on that.

Feel free to post any reference you guys have of the original prop here :)

Took a crack at the Worm Gear Hob section today, fairly pleased with how it's turning out:

The magic of 3d modeling. Looks great.

Sorry in advance for the large images, the BBCode to have small, clickable thumbnails doesn't seem to work here...

Well I got hold of a high res version of those blueprints and redrew it from that:

I also found a fishing pole (what the original was made with according to those prints) at walmart that seemed about the right size and adapted my model a little so the pole would thread in and successfully printed myself a prototype :)

The model is currently being perspective matched to the available reference pics to see if anything needs tweaking and then I think I'm gonna look into doing a small run of accurate, machined pikes :D

Been tweaking my model and I believe I have it as accurate as I can get without discovering the exact parts or getting the chance to measure the original prop:

Should have some kind of cost estimate for a machined metal pike here soon for those interested :)

Great job on your research.

I'll be watching this progress with great interest.
