    Hi, I'm new here, I need some help finding what to put in the brass knurled knob on on my Obi Wan TOM lightsaber, I know it's a little purple piece, don't know what to use. Any advice would help. Thanks

    I'm not aware of any brass knob on any of Obi-Wan's sabers. I'm assuming you mean TPM instead of TOM? If you mean the ball on the end of the hilt, I believe they used a large aluminum washer with protrusions that was put into a black plastic enclosure. If you mean his second saber, it was a British sink knob.

    I'm going to move this over to Costuming and Props - you've got a better chance of finding what you're looking for there.

    Good luck!

    I meant to say TPM , the phantom menace obi wan lightsaber. It had the brass knurled knob with a purple piece in the middle of it.

    Hi!

    Been reading. Its described as a 'gem'. So some folks have actually gotten a cheap amethyst crystal and glued it on, others found a tiny plastic ball, cut it in half, and painted it the color they wanted on there. Basically, it seems that anything that will fit on the Brass knob that you like, works well.
