R2-D2 Dome Alignment Bullet set of 6. These are threaded 10-32 x .25" diameter, giving you more precise adjustment than 10-24 threads. Drill your dome ring to just slip over the bullets, add a slight chamfer, and these will enable quick and easier alignment and removal of dome. Your current screws may be 10-24, so be sure and check.
There is an option to also order stainless screws and nuts that fit the Rockler bearings and dome bullets.

This is a replica of one of the real R2 dome toppers. It happens to be the one I took photos of when I was around this particular R2 when Don Bies had it at Steve Sansweet's Rancho Obi-Wan for a photo shoot years ago. Of all the toppers I've seen, it's the most interesting since it has a beveled edge instead of just being rounded over.
It's aluminum and made in two pieces, so finishing is easy. It fits into the hole inside Daren's alum dome, and is held with an included 1/4" ss washer and ss 1/4-28 nut.
These skins have been updated to make them easier to prepare, will show which panels always get removed, and include a coin return flat-pack, which you can use to assemble your own coin returns that can glue to the coin return faces, which are also provided as part of the rolled outside skins.

This is a servo mount, mount hardware, and servo screws. This mount fits both my HP mounting rings, as well as the BobC rings.
This adapter fits the Granite Earth dome drive and allows you to install Pixelfiend's geared dome setup. It has 3 screws for attaching to the motor shaft after you cut it to length. It's best if you can file flats onto the shaft for each of the fixing screws. If you have a dome plate right on top of the gear set, you will want to countersink 82 degrees for flathead screws. The adapter comes with both capscrews and flathead screws.
When you order your gearset from Pixelfiend, tell him you are using this adapter and he will drill the proper holes in the pinion.
Holmes Frame Side Plate Set. Comes with hardware and driling template.
When these go out of stock, they will not be run again.
This kit includes precision machined parts used to build a 232 MaxDrive designed by Maxstang in the Astromech R2 forum.
You should only buy this if you have been in contact with Maxstang, and know this is just part of the items necessary to implement his design. These parts only work with styrene feet.
Set of three 6-wire slip rings. This is the same slip ring included with the Kid-Proof Holo Projector upgrades.
These Holo-Projectors are club-spec in the visible part, but have a dramatically larger rear access opening, and are very large inside, with two different "steps" you can use to mount electronics.
Each of these is a complete Kid-Proof HP with servo mounting hardware and slip ring. Be sure and select the HP location for each one as the mounting rings are custom for front, back and top locations.
The mounting ring position fixure is very helpful for installation. It's the same for all locations, so you only need to buy one for your dome.
If buying more than one, select shipping for the additional HPs as "Additional HPs".
