    Jan 12, 2008, 4:24 AM - Into battle with the anglegrinder (Metal ESB) #1

    THE THREAD TITLE SHOULD SAY Into battle with the anglegrinder (Metal ROTJ) NOT anything about HELMETS...

    So I finaly started my Esb suit. Im working in 0.8 mm (dunno what that is in inches) and 2 mm gauge steel plates. Will post pics as it progresses.
    Currently finished with 1 chestplate since i managed to ruin the other one with the anglegrinder, the collar, gutplate and the shoulder pieces.

    I managed to fit this into a school project, so I also get some school fundings for buying steel/clay/and whatnot I will require

    Phew, lots of text for a non-englishspeaker, so on with a few pictures:

    The picture that inspired the threadtitle

    As you van se, i bend the edges all thre way around to create a smooth edge around the whole plate.

    First go, now one of these are finished, the other one in the trash

    Just a quick question about the helmet dimensions of the helmet made by Bobamaker.

    ps: oh yes, and hello everyone, longtime lurker finaly decided to post something. Im norwegian so sorry if there are some gramatical errors.

    Did some more work today... This project will be well documented by photography, a side-effect from it being a school assignment:o


    This is how I bent my shoulders... I just took a log the size of my arms, and bent them around it.





    Testing out some denting on a ruined chestplate and another piece of metal.


    Replacement chestplate.



    I skiped a bit in the pictures, but here you see the back side of my belt.


    These are now riveted (is that what its called?) together. Creating not a totaly canon belt, but I do like it anyway.


    TADA!


    The other parts, (yes they are bent, you just cant see it in this picture)

    I think I bent my shoulderplates a tad to much
