    Re: ESB Gaunlet greeblie help

    Intriguing... any idea on a timeline, asok? I have a set of gaunts I'm working on right now, and at the very least I'd like to have the actual switch from this pocket light.

    No clue yet. It will just depend on when it gets to me.

    Congrats for the purchase! Can't wait to see the images! Could you do some measurements too, to confirm my values from post #14 and #19? Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the images and the measurements! My measurements were based on the image provided from the Ever Ready Catalog and the overall length might also include the light bulb:

    I will correct those measurements when I get home.

    Re: ESB Gaunlet greeblie help

    Very cool, and thanks to everyone for sharing their finds!

    Now the next question... was this used as part of the gauntlet shape at the front, or did they just use the guts & light inside and the button on the outside?

    It is possible that they used the whole mini torch and build that part of the gauntlet around it:

    That is what I think. If it's supposed to be functional like the one in the supertrooper gauntlet it needs the batteries, and keeping the rest of the torch built in sounds like an easy solution to keep the batteries built in.

    I'm with Raf on this one. That's my theory as well

    Re: ESB Gaunlet greeblie help

    Ive always thought of it as the whole torch in the gauntlet ...the recess at the front looks to me to be a rectangular opening cut into the vac of the gauntlet with the torch face behind it ... the bulb would be masked off and the recessed torch front painted ...thats what I think we see at the front...(my theory )...
    the torch could be mounted on velcro with the switch sticking through the side panel ?...this leaves easy access to batteries and a self contained unit in the gauntlet ... after all 'why fix what isnt broke?'

    Im Working on a set of gauntlets at the moment so will build a platform to hold the light in and see how it goes will, let you all know how I get on with it and also if anyone needs just the button part, as soon as I have molded it I will send a few out if people want one.

    Re: ESB Gaunlet greeblie help

    Is the button a 'slide' switch, or a push-button on the flashlight?

    Re: ESB Gaunlet greeblie help

    I have worked on these files for a while now... and almost drive me crazy. Most of the parts are based on estimations and guess work using the images posted by boba trooper (a huge thanks for him!) and although I didn't posted measurements, I provided a mm and an inch ruler to help you in printing the image at the right percentage. I did a test print using the Windows Picture And Fax Viewer program (for Windows users) with the 'Full Page Fax Print' option, resulting a perfect 1:1 page (sadly I'm not sure about the LTR format). But I guess it depends on the printer settings too...

    Here are the files in A4 and Letter formats:
    ever-ready-minilight-template-a4-jpg ever-ready-minilight-template-ltr-jpg

    If there are areas that needs tweaking or resizing, just let me know and I will do the necessary adjustments.


    Have fun!
