Is there a source for the mushroom cap or something you created?  Or are we being left in the dark?

I wondered when someone might ask ;-))

Guesses anyone? Here's a hint: You would usually get it in the same department as you would get the syphon ;-)

Nice hint!

I already checked vintage picnic items, plastic stuff, radio equipment and a lot of plumbers stuff but haven't found anything close!

Please don't say it's the thing we call "Pömpel" in Germany?!  I don't even know a english word for it...   :woot:

I don't know the texture but I'm almost tempted to say some kind of toilet plunger perhaps?

Now I'm almost certain it's part of the ball cock from a toilet cut in half.

Yes, it is a toilet plunger or a "Pömpel" as some say in Germany! Well done, guys! :dance:

LOL!!

I found an old WC Tank on a sidewalk in London, and had to check if there was a Shires syphon on it... Found out that no, no shires, but yes, a syphon... so I just had to strip the tank down there and then, bare hands, and take the syphon all the way back to my hotel and then home...

So yeah, you know that if we need to go through hundreds of vintage used toilet plungers, we wil!

Thats what we do, don't we?

Come on, don't be so picky. After removing a couple of 30 year old crusty brown layers they look almost new :teehee:

Yeah man, me too. I've known they were rubber plungers for quite some time now but I've never found one that fits the bill. And I didn't think somebody would be so bold as to sell a 30 year old used rubber plunger on ebay, yuck ;-)

But then by pure luck - call it serindipity - I found one on Amazon UK earlier this week!

Star Wars Celebration was a great time, and I had the opportunity to meet Gino while taking pictures of his backpack. I also met Woodman, and he mentioned the mushroom cap was actually the rubber end of a toilet plunger.

Is this the real reason why the armor is so dirty?
