Glowrod (aka Lumas): flashlight / worklight
Halite Imaging Electrograph:  Monitors hot spots in ship's electronic systems.
Hand Laser Saw:  To cut through things.
Hydroclamper: like a hydrospanner, but different
Hydrospanner: all around supertool. like a wrench, but different.

Usefull for     installing new parts and for preventing meltdowns.
Magnon Spirograph:  Used to measure effeciency of hyperdrive systems

Power-Pulse Monitor: measuring engine performance
Recording Rod: audio / video recorder ( about the size if a lightsaber handle)
ReliaCharger: a power charge in a stick (basically)
Relotian Dionizer:  To negate the effects of an ion blast(takes about a day  per system) or any other ionic contamination.
Sonic Screwdriver (OK, so it's not SW, but I like 'em)for undoing sonicly  screwed items
Synthion Canister:  Storage and aplication device for Synthionfoam.
Virimon Pump:  Fire Extinguisher.
  

Vehicle Parts:

Activation Matrix:  The bit of the hyperdrive that makes it go so darn fast.
Agitator Bearings: neccesary for repulsorlift operation on gas giants, adjustible.
Alluvial dampers : Keeps the ship from shaking itself apart at high speeds
Amicron Mix:  Acts as a radiation soak, and is used to shield any sytem that leaks dangerous radiation.  Should be changed fairly often.
Anion Discharge System:  How the ship gets rid of ion drive byproducts.
Antioxidant Induction Fluid:  Keeps the Activation Matrix from covering itself with a thick rustlike layer which prevents hyperdrive use. (caution: do not drink)
Balance Turbines: Distribute repulsorlift field energy evenly around the craft
Brath Bearing Brackets: allow smooth rapid turns on speederbikes
Central Computer System:  What it says.
Cephalaph Shielding:  A waxy grey insulant used to protect the other systems from the ship's power plant emissions
Comm unit - Pretty obvious, isn't it?
Computer Control Circuts:  Enables the computer to activate and deactivate ship's systems.
Computer Feedback Circuts:Keeps computer aware of the status of the various systems.
Drive Compensator : a device used to counterbalance to effects of the drive
Drive Compensator  Fusion Coil : The central [and, consequently, the most expensive] part of the fusion engine, which provides power to the ship.
Fission Charger : a device used to re-carge fuel cells.
Frigidon Mix:  Very cold fluid. Passed through certain systems in partialy insulated tubes to keep them from overheating. Also poured on things to make them more brittle.
Fuel Cells:  Containers of fusable material designed to be used by the power plants.  Burnt out fuel cells can be recycled, or recharged through a fission charger.
Fuel Converters - Since most ships have reactionless drives, fuel converters would be quite uncommon.  If your ship has one, and it blows, you've got a major problem on your hands.
Horizontal boosters -;  thrusters used to provide lateral movement
Hyperdrive:  That which makes the ship go past light speed.Duh.
Hyperspace Compass - a heading indicator.  Like a compass, it measures your direction of travel,
Inertial Dampers:  Keeps the crew from getting that chunkysalsa look when the ship makes a fast turn.
Interphase Transducers:  Converts energy from the powerplants into a form usable by the hyperdrive.
Ion Piston: Ion engine part
Jehltekk Enhancer Valve: component of a repulsorlift maneuvering system
Microimpact Dampers:  Keep the ships drive systems from jolting themselves out of alignment.
Power Couplings - A power coupling transfers energy from one circuit into another.
Power Plant:  Source of energy for all ships systems.
Quad Power Cyclers: power cyclers for speeder craft.
Sliverfoils: Ion engine component
Reactant Agitator Injector: feul injecton?
Repulsorlift generator: generates the repulsorlift field
Repulsor Modulator: gas pedal?
Serbo-bracket: available in any landspeeder, brackets the serbos
Synthion Foam:  Insulates, reduces emissions, and holds things together in a pinch.
Thersop Ambulator: Skiff tiller control component
Trianolubricant fluid:  Keeps ion drives from overheating.
Trianolubricant Injection System:  Keeps those ion drives swimmin.
Turbothrust Converter Coils: expressed in sizes V-5 to V-12

Rotating Balance Stabiliser: Keeping personal missle weapons ballanced in thier housing.
Static Pulse Adaptors / Galven circutry: lining on the inside of the blaster barrel
Xciter : mixes energy and gas to form a raw blaster bolt.

Large Weaponry parts

Azimuth Rotation Platform: essential component to turrets.
Calibration Module: presumably used to 'adjust the sights' of SF weaponry
Capacitor Banks: banks of capacitors
Cooling Unit / Vent: pretty obvious
Firing Computer: the fire control box

DER: Dedicated Energy Receptors
EPR: Electro-Photo Receptors
FST: Full Spectrum Transciever
PLS: Passive Long-range Sensor
STS: Short-range Target-acquiring Sensor

Note: This list was compiled by members of the SW-RPG mailing list to be utilized as "Flavor Text" or "Fluff" for when equipment or vehicles break down or become damaged. There are no prices listed for the various items on the list. This is due to the wide variety of sizes, shapes, functions, conditions (new. used), and availability of items. It is a compilation of technical terms and items found throughout the SW universe publications.

Presumably the items listed are ubiquitous throughout the SW Galaxy.

Quote: "So yer in needin 'o sum parts, eh? Less us jus see whut 'ol Phil can cumz up wit."
Equipment: See list above
Background:
    Dirty Phil began his carreer as a Salvage expert for the Reussi Corporation. After the Corp. vertiably destroyed the Ecology of ReussiVIII Phil Stayed on-world, buying up land as it's value plummeted.
    Since ReussiVIII is located at the end of the Nanth-Ri trade route, Phil has worked out several "deals" with the routes pilots, paying handsomely for the location of starbattles, and deliverd salvage.
    His "Scrapyard" comprises almost an entire sub-continent on ReussiVIII, and is easilly several hundered square kilometers in size, and can even be seen from low orbit.
    Phil himself doesn't deal well with people, and employs several, large, burly life forms to assist him in negotiations.  The scrapyard is tended by hundreds of droids( all are armed) who continuously re-organize the lots. Though this may seem confusing, Phill seems to know every part on his lot, and it's location.
    The atmosphere on ReussiVIII is Type II, and corrosive. It consantly rains highly acidic water, which doesn't blend well with technology. Therefore, there is a good chance that items purcased from him may malfunction (purchasers are required to sign a waiver)
    Since the Scrapyard contains a wide variety of weapon parts, the area is well protected from attack by several well hidden, jurry-rigged weapon emplacements
