Help With The Friends Lipstick
I'm gonna start by saying that I'm NOT collecting the lipsticks of the new theme...I just hope the title will be catchy enough so people could notice.
It's just that I'm building a new MOC and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to mount an inverted dish along the axis of a technic axle pin with friction ridges
Then I saw the lipstick and thought it could do the job. Though I want to confirm two things first:
1) If the handle fit through the pin, and:
2) If the colored end can be separated from the whole assembly.
I'm hoping someone who has the Friends set can confirm if the assembly is feasible. The sets won't be available yet in our country.

(@LostInTranslation it's this piece http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?P=43093, you're bound to have one)
^Thank you for that one... I should've just done that in the first place, I guess.
So, since it's one moulded piece, I guess I have to cut one of my Lightsaber blades instead of having those things ordered.
Anyway, I'm still wondering if anyone can suggest an alternative build without having to cut things up? So the concave side of the small inverted dish could get aligned through the long axis of the technic pin's hole?
Lifting form the other thread I made:
@sidersdd: the pneumatic T-piece has a small portion protruding and makes the dish sit proudly[against the structure], but If I can't have anything else, then it will be the one I shall use.
@julian977: The screwdriver is also feasible, but I don't like bending it....to hide it, if that is what you mean!
@Redbullgiveswind: It is the small satellite dish, but it won't fit through...assembly below...
The reason why I was mulling the use the lipstick is that were it feasible, the dish would be closer to the technic piece. But since it is a single piece, the colored part would stick through. I don't think I can hide that with a 1x1 round plate.
I have attached where the dish is supposed to be.
