I’ve had several inquiries for these. I’ve listed them externally.
This Aluminum Nozzle replica is a one part design (no ratchet effect) extensively prototyped and engineered & re-engineered by me to allow a quick retrofit to Art Asylum P2 TOS shells, while being the most efficient combined heat-sink & heat-dissipator possible when used with a standard 12 mm diameter laser module.
Compatible With: Art Asylum © ™ ®, HMS Roddenberry Resin Kits © ™ ®, Shanko Fiberglass Hero’s, 23rd Century Pistol Kits © ™ ®, remember you’re the prop builder ! These Nozzles also make for unique “hot” and “cold” faucet knob in a powder bath, IF you have a lathe (my powder bath is “Trekstra Cool” ).

The aluminum is NOT ANODIZED and is of a softer alloy type than others on the market. Why?, I used a special 6063-T5 un-anodized aluminum because it is workable by a prop builder. Anodizing most often hardens the material surface making it difficult to; machine, grain and/or, further polish.
This aluminum is easy to; mirror polish even-more, drill, file, acid weather, rolex grain and, do anything else you can come up with. I also do not like anodizing because it does not look “prop authentic” to the 1960’s TV show. This photo of a mid grade fiberglass phaser uses this nozzle with some minor modifications like a slightly enlarged front radii.
If you do not have a lathe; Put a wood ½” dowel in a drill, sand it down to for the 31/64” nozzle hole diameter, mount the part, and zam you have a min-lathe to; file, grain, polish, add or enlarge a groove, and do whatever you like to this nozzle.
A modified I just shipped all detailed and polished with the beck extension removed and the rear hole enlarged for a 1/2" brass tube.
