    Jan 14, 2008, 2:34 PM - Jeremy's NEW Shin Tools #1

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    This is correct, still looking for the springs though.

    Why make a copy when the originals are still in production?

    Cheaper?

    The replica does look extremely nice though.
