    back in the day, i made my gauntlets from aluminum duct pipe. I know I have them here somewhere. let me take a pic.






    Parts used:

    aluminium duct pipe (for dryers, etc)
    some pvc piping
    plum bob (cut down on the bandsaw)
    an empty cigarette box
    3 small empty staple boxes (for a staplegun)
    tape
    drywall plaster (used as a glue which I molded to fit)

    cost: about 10 bucks. Are they the best things in the world? Nope, but they worked for what I needed until I got a real set. So, as long as you have access to some materials, I have no doubt you could make yourself a temp set to use. Good luck!

    Hi,
    I'm in the same situation as you are and am planning to give building my own gauntlets a try.

    I found this thread on TDH that has some templates on it that may help you out. (thanks biomechaniod56 for posting them)
