    I know it ain't much but it will look good when I'm done. I bought a vise and it makes a huge difference. Here is the first piece.

    That trapezoid looking piece with the hole is for the hose on top/behind the right gauntlet

    I know I have to fix a few blemishes around the welds but does this look right to every one?

    You can easily salvage this gauntlet just take off the whipcord housing that is the difference between the two gauntlets for ROTJ and ESB. There aren't a ton of good measurements out there for ESB. I didn't realize you were doing ESB or I would have told you earlier. You have a fantastic gauntlet there. Good luck on the reconstruction
