    Attaching gauntlet darts

    I procured a set of aluminum darts for my WOF scratchbuilt gaunts. Can anyone offer suggestions how to attach them to the gaunt. Pics would be nice if possible. Sorry, I'm a visual learner.

    I attached my darts by first drilling the holes, then inserted plastic tubes which I glued in place. ( ensuring that the angle was correct by test-fitting a dart when I glued them in place. ) Once the tubes were glued in place, I trimmed them flush to the outside and filled in any holes or gaps. ( aside from the holes in the actual tubes )

    Then I used hot glue to secure the darts in the tubes. I can try and post up a pic of the dart setup for you tonight if you'd like.

    Jango 72, I like that idea. I think I will drill the holes and maybe place the darts in some kind of set up that allows me to mount them all in one go.

    Hot glue will be used.

    i used plumbers epoxy putty. drilled holes, stuck the darts into a lump of epoxy putty on the inside and adjusted them so that they were all parallel / level. 5 minutes later they aren't moving.
