    Sep 20, 2005, 2:02 AM - Bucket armour #1

    Hi

    I hit upon a crazy idea just over a week ago, whilst making repairs to the garden shed I spotted a bucket out of the corner of my eye and decided to try and make some armour from it, its naturally curved so little or no shaping should be needed. pictures to follow

    I used a 5gal bucket for my cheast armor and it works great. It can be shaped if needed with a torch. It can be hard to cut though.

    I used the same idea, I got a big bucket from B & Q for around 6 and I think so far it has come out pretty good, granted its not up to the standard of a lot of peoples armour but Im really pleased with it.

    That is good looking armour

    I have cut mine out and just need to clean up the edges, it will do until I make it out of metal
