    Alum. J/P thruster caps

    I'm checking the waters to see if anyone is intrested in adding some more aluminum parts to their suit.

    These were another members idea (chime in if you want ) and I thought it was a dang good one.
    I know he is down for a set but I was wondering if anyone else would like to jump in on these.

    All you need to do is cut off the old ones on your thrusters, dremel the hole out nice and epoxy them in.

    $30.00 shipped if your interested.

    The diameter is .835

    List so far...
    1. Galactic Bounty Hunter.....PAID
    2. deadbolt.....PAID
    3. Ripcode.....PAID
    4. Cerillo.....PAID
    5. TK-2177.....PAID
    6. SlaveR5.....PAID
    7. bobamaker.....PAID
    8. TK172.....PAID
    9. Got Maul.....PAID
    10. Matrix.....PAID

    Thanks,
    -Tim-

    Interesting, Very Interesting! Although with that said, I wonder if this topic can be massaged a bit more by asking if there's a way of also machining the jet pack adjustment tool cross hairs?

    Did you ever think about making that small metal part above the darts on the right gaunt? It might be kind of difficult, since it's kinda' oval in shape.

    That's a great idea, but it may be difficult to fit it to the different style gauntlets.

    Thanks Tim. I am down for a bit, but I have a Legion of members helping me out of a rough time.
    I don't want to take too much time here to cry the blues, but I have been hit with a lot of bad luck lately. However, I will be back 100% soon. I was recently diagnosed with an aggressive skin cancer, and had my 2nd successful surgery this past Monday. The Doc said it's looking good and to remain positive! Other issues hit at the same time, but I will tackle each thing one at a time.
    As for the thruster caps, mine had been busted off at an event, and after seeing what Tim can do with aluminum, this idea hit me right in the face.
    I gotta say Tim, you took this and ran with it, and as usual... Awesome!!!! Thanks bro!

    I was going to sell my suit, but was nearly lynch mobbed by my garrison when they found out, and many of them pointed out the "short term fix" and "long term regret" so I will keep my suit, and with that said, I would love a set of the thruster caps!
    To those members of TDH who offered support.....

    THANK YOU!

    Re: Alum. J/P thruster caps

    Bro, what is your scedule like for doing a set of machined ears in febuary or march???

    I am nolonger going to be assisting FP on his MSH2 but I am ebarking on my own helmet journey soon. If only to have a set for my self I am willing to pay you for your time.

    I am going to talk to Lee and see if he is gung ho about me giving you measurments based off his "Accurate Earcaps" and have that be the basis. He seemse very open to that but dosnt want to mess with offering them him self. Let me know your thoughts and I will talk with him further.

    My helmet I am doing a rework on is a mystery... the same that FP used as his basis for his MSH2. I want to come up with a fantastic and accurate ROTJ and ESB meening they will have the gouges allready in them, accurate ears... dent... (as the ROTJ is differnt then the ESB dent) and so on. Braks seems fine with offering these when there done as long as I am honest with the board that they are from a reworked mystery but I dont know that I want to be a full time helmet maker. I do however want to make them for my self and have them sport true metal earcaps.

    Thanks for your help in this bro!
