Just in case anyone who is interested and didn't read my reply in Greatwazoo's thread, below is a repost.....

Hello Everyone and thanks for bringing me on-board!!

The item you seek for the pentorch is actually a(n) Continuity Tester. The original prop was on ebay back in 2006. Below is a link to one made by Gardner Bender, which is the closest match I have found.

The Gardner Bender Continuity Tester can be purchased here:

http://www.fdsons.com/continuity-testerflashlight-gft200-p-6316.html

and below is a link and part # to the Banana jack which is affixed on the end.

www.mouser.com

part#: 164-6216

If you click on the data sheet you'll see a diagram of the jack. All in all, this prop replica should not cost you no more then $10.00 - $12.00 USD.

Once again, thanks for bringing me on board!! I look forward to trading info and builds with all of you!

Best Regards,
Rob

Thanks for this info, roguescout. You're certainly a very welcome addition to the board!  :)

I've actually been looking for this item recently - as one of my many side projects...

Cheers!

BTW. Has anyone got any idea what the one used by Hartnell in Edge of Destruction was?

Well, I checked one of my prefered sources for an image:  http://www.shillpages.com/dw/dwia.htm

No luck though.  I'd have to go back and watch the ep again to get a look at it.
