    Mar 9, 2014, 12:10 AM - ESB Guantlet hose connection #1

    Hello. I have a Bobamaker ESB gauntlet. I was wondering if anyone can give me advice on how to connect the hose to the gauntlet? Thank you.

    I drilled the appropriate size hole for a wooden dowel. Added some krazy glue inside the hose to secure it to the dowel. Then just cut a hole big enough at the end of the hose that goes under your sleeve to fit a large safety pin to secure it. Careful though, make sure the hose length is appropriate.

    The accurate route: The screen used gauntlet have two switches on the side... basically, the wires that reside inside hold the tube in place..

    Check this out: Boba Fett Empire Strikes Back Costume - HD Screen Captures - The Dented Helmet Gallery

    And check this out: Boba Fett Supertrooper Costume Test Fitting - The Dented Helmet Gallery



    Non Accurate option: compressor fittings... there is a couple of threads here that cover the fittings you are after.
