    What is everyone using for the 4 shoulder bolts that connect the neck and back plate? They kind of look like keyboard keys.

    I think I read somewhere about using furniture pads for those. you know the ones you put on the bottom of legs of a couch or something.

    There are little stoppers. Not quite for legs on furniture but for doors and door handles that work well, if I remember correctly they are a little small though. Hope this helps.

    I used the furniture thingys. They go on the bottoms of chair legs so you don't scratch up your floors.

    Mmmmmm, metal. I'm using cast resin ones for the time being until these become available again {hint, hint}.

    I just made one out of wood and then cast them out of resin. I haven't painted them yet but here is a pic. It gives me a chance to put a small bolt in them while they are setting up. I think people have also used keyboard keys. There not too hard to make so good luck!

    I tried keyboard keys a while back. I sanded them flat (the bottoms were slanted) and then filled them with epoxy. I tried sitting a bolt into them, but when the whole thing would screw down, the bolt would always come off. Next I made some out of sculpy (sp?) and I set the bolts in while they were cooking. Didn't work. The all broke into tiny pieces when I tried screwing them on. Does anyone just use snaps for connecting the back and collar and put decorative glued down cubes? I'm out of ideas

    I bought the plastic pieces for the furniture, but they somehow don't seem high enough. Did I buy the right ones???

    Damn. I was going to ask if anyone was interested in a set of aluminum ones. I'm making them for myself, and it's actually easier to make a BUNCH. Like a machined waffle. I'll have to check with Dean to see if he still has them.

    If Dean O isn't going to be making them anytime soon, I'd be down for a set of yours, price pending of course.

    Well, I'm still waiting to find out from Dean. I figure $7 a set (of 4), shipped. I won't be doing a HUGE amount. Probably in the area of 36- 72 (9-18 sets). For now.

    Don't forget about the two on either side of the cod peice,butt plate.Giving a total of 6.There is a specific press photo of ROTJ Fett where you can clearly see a shoulder bolt on the cod where it must hold the cod/butt on.

    Crap, I just realized I hijacked.:o
    Sorry about that, it just occurred to me now.

    I didn't know if the two on the codpiece were confirmed or not. Hell, I just thought the "buttplate" was a shoulder strap pad or something. I'd say $10.50 for the set of 6, then. But I'll start a whole new thread, once I hear from Dean. Sorry about that. Bad manners.

    I made some tonight. They're almost done. I'm doing them in stages, so no finished pics yet, but I should be done by this weekend, maybe Monday. I think I made too many. It took way too long.

    I guess I'll go start a thread.

    Does any one have a pic for reference of where these go?
    I'm working on a Jango but I must have missed something.
    Thanks

    yes,lads,the originals are metal,with bolts fitted.You can see it in the pix i have( if you want 'em email me).You can see that the cape is grommeted,and fits between the stud head and the armor.I used those stickybacked square rubber furn. things for my 1st one.....WRONG!!!!!!!.............they work well and look good.......'til you see the pic and see how it was done for the films........(some of us are obsessed with filmeable quality......lol..............)i'm gonna have to make some metal ones......if anyone lives in australia(melbourne)and good with this stuff,let me know.........
