Re: Begins gauntlet project resurrected! - PIC intensive update 3/07!


that would be great, since I'm looking forward to having accurate fiberglass BB gauntlets...if you ever get the hang of it, I'd be more than happy to order a pair.

Plus I plan on putting aluminum fins on them, made by a blacksmith that did steel BB gauntlets (I forget his name right now though).

Cool. I'll see what I can come up with. :)

If you're wanting to put fins on them other than the ones I'm using I can just do a finless pair for ya.

Here's another teaser. :wink

First layer of silicone went on minutes ago. emoticon

I dunno what took it so long. The fins did the very same thing next day. But they all dried so its all good.

I finished slopping the silicone on today and plastered the things with some "apple sauce". :p

Image

Well... at least it looked like apple sauce right after it was mixed. :lol This is Smooth-on's "Plasti-paste". It looks like wet fiberglass insulation, and then when the catalyst is added it looks like apple sauce, and dries looking like tuna fish. :p

Mmmm.... that made me hungry for a tuna fish sandwich. emoticon

Other than sanding sharp edges off I'm gonna let everything set up overnight, even though I'm pretty sure everything's cured.

Tomorrow, the mold gets opened up. emoticon

Alrighty! This has been a long time coming...

The first molds are ready for production, mother molds and all(I had to go a different route with the mother molds because my newby method of making them was damaging the primary molds)!

Image

I'm excited enough that I'm gonna start casting sets in resin right away. :up

Sets in rubber will be forthcoming.
