A Murchason ring stress analyzer was a type of silver-colored stress analyzer that consisted of a tube-shaped body with a spring-shaped protrusion extending from the top. In his home in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine, the slave Anakin Skywalker kept a Murchason ring stress analyzer on a ledge next to the workbench in his bedroom.
In 32 BBY, Skywalker was using the workbench to build the protocol droid C-3PO, whose head rested on the ledge next to the stress analyzer as Skywalker brought Queen Padmé Amidala and the astromech droid R2-D2 in to his room to show off the protocol droid.
Behind the scenesEdit
