Re: Begins gauntlet project resurrected! - PIC update 4/07 - finished gauntlets!


I don't know how the hinges work on the real things, since there never were any real metal gauntlets. So the screen used ones probably were just velcroed or something. There are a few frames during the frozen lake training scene where Bruce slides on the ice and you can see the hinge on his gauntlet come loose and swing open. I'm pretty sure that's actually Bale there, and even if there were metal ones, there is no way they'd let their star do tumbling tricks with real weapons.

Anyhow, the way Dr. Feldon engineered the metal gauntlets is pretty smart. You will see a piece of the ridging that slides under the blade rib, and though not visible without close up macro shots, there is a little 1/8" tab sticking out on the top of it, and an 1/8" gap in the underside of the rib. When you push the door all the way closed, the tab pops into the slot and they 'lock' shut. They won't open until you push in on the door and pop the tab back out of the slot.

(yes, I know I need to touch up/fix the paint)

Patrick, are you trying to do hinges for folks with bigger arms or for all of your gauntlets?

Just curious.

If someone wanted a pair without the doors and hinges, thats cool. However I think most would because my hands/wrists are a little bit smaller than average, and I can barely get these on and off without scraping up my hands.

Greg, thank you so much! I may try that method of closure first before my hingepin idea.

And I'll check out that scene in the movie that you're talking about as well.

Re: Begins gauntlet project resurrected! - UPDATE 4/27!


Check the trade area! These puppies are ready!

Well, without doors that is. But for those willing to install the hinges themselves, they're ready.

You know what to do.
