Jeremy's NEW Shin Tools

    Jeremy's NEW Shin Tools

    Hi everyone

    I've been asked to build and paint a set of shin tools for the 'Dressing the Real Fett' thread
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=23257.
    Of course I was over the moon to be asked to help out with this . I decided to go the extra mile and make the largest tool flexible, just like the original 'Paterson' Squeegee.

    I bought a 'Paterson' squeegee then sculpted the shin tool, making sure I kept the two halves separate. i then made moulds of these two pieces and made polyurethane resin copies, they turned really well. Below are the pictures showing the basic idea.

    Wow, what a ridiculous concept!!
    Send it to me for immediate disposal. . . that kind of stuff shouldn't be allowed.






    Looks excellent! How cool.

    It will be possible to make these tools, I just need to find a supplier for the compression springs. The ones on this set (Jeremy's) are the ones that were inside the original squeegee. I've found a couple of possible springs but so far they aren't quite right.... the hunt continues.

    Re: Jeremy's NEW Shin Tools

    Daz, that's cool and all, but I got to ask.

    Why not just use a the real Paterson squeegee to make the tool?

    Re: Jeremy's NEW Shin Tools

    I imagine Daz wanted to make his own copy of the tool, and will perhaps (?) offer it in the future to any interested parties

    Re: Jeremy's NEW Shin Tools

    Why make a copy when the originals are still in production?
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._Squeegee.html

    Cheaper?

    The replica does look extremely nice though.
