Nice engineering job EchoSix, which started with a solid approach.

EhcoSix was gracious enough to let me make these and offer them up to the brothers. If anyone wants a kit, let me know. I make them as a single piece out of resin with a screw and the screw insert.

Let me know whos is interested.

I will post a pic of the product soon.

EchoSix, would you mind elaborating on the technique used to cut the hole in the latex/urethane armor please? :pray
I am awaiting a BD Begins torso and I do not want to screw it up.

Thanks!

Sure...

Get a hole, and install it into the suit.
































 emoticon Sorry. Couldn't resist. I'm an ass, I know.

I used a pointy cutting bit on my Dremel...

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

...and pushed it into the latex and just rounded it out until it was the right size of the spacer piece, so that it fit in without having to push hard on it. It just slid into place.

I wouldn't use a drill bit on it though. It might run the possibility of snagging the rubber and doing a bit of damage.

If you're careful enough, you could always just use an X-Acto knife or something like that. Just don't leave any "corners" that might run the possibility of tearing in the future. But then, with the Goop (or any other glue you use to glue it in place from behind), that should hold any tears from happening of it's not a perfectly round and flawless hole.

I used a soldering iron. Nice clean hole and seals off the edges nicely. That was urethane though. Not sure if there are disadvantages with doing so on latex.

Smells like catfood and a$$. :lol
Actually it wasn't that bad. Pretty small holes so it was barely noticeable.
