    Does anyone offer metal shin tools? I see some old threads about some being offered in aluminum. I'm looking for a set.

    If anyone has any leads, please shoot me a PM.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Well the large shin tool is a squeegee.

    I made this is CAD a while ago, fell free to use it.



    I have no idea about metal shin tools though, you could make them yourself from sheet metal.

    Any particular reason you want metal? I would think even caste in aluminum would weigh your pants legs down more than resin ones.

    I know, I just meant accurate in shape, size etc. & since there painted to look like metal, I thought it would be kinda cool if they actually were metal.

    Several people here, switched from the metal tools to resin because the clanking drove them nuts and the added weight was a problem.

    Before you commit to the aluminum tools, try similar size metal tools in your jumpsuit shin pockets and see if you will like it.

    i'm one of those! i had a set of AL tools from omega_man:



    they were based off of the visual dictionary pictures. they looked awesome, but i sounded like a wind chime when i walked with them in my pockets.

    unless your suit is made of a really heavy material, they'll clang together something fierce.

    yeah, they were really nice, but i ended up trading them for a resin set to save on weight / noise.

    Sweet set of shin tools there! If the colliding while walking is a problem, why not use some industrial strength velcro to "anchor" them to the suit?

    I'd think the most annoying part of those is haveing them slam into your shin if you move just right.
