    Hi Christian, no rush or anything just wondering where I might be on the list.

    Hey Guys,

    All remaining ESB's are shipped..I'm no longer accepting any further orders for the ESB gauntlet kits.

    "The ESB run is done"!

    Thanks again for all your continued support..

    Best,
    Christian

    Hey Christian,

    Sorry, I am confused not really sure what your last post means. I had sent you money for a set of these and you confirmed that you received my payment on Sept 2nd. Does your post mean that mine have already shipped, or that I somehow missed this run and you will be sending me back my money? Just trying to figure out the status.

    Thx again,

    Jon

    Whew! I am so glad to hear that. I was hoping I had not missed out on these (missed the first run you did about a year or so back).

    Thanks Christian!

    Hey Guys,

    I should have that photo tutorial up sometime today..Sorry for the wait.

    Best,
    Christian

    Hey Guys,

    Here's the photo tutorial:

    I'm posted about 20+ photos of the gauntlet assembly. Here are the first 10 photos. I'll describe what shown.

    1. Clean all edges and grind down pour spouts before beginning.

    2. Mark 4 holes evenly spaced about 1/2" from edge for your plug inserts.

    3. Check markings so the inserts will be hidden behind your flame unit without being seen. One plug insert at the front will be seen.

    4. Drill 4 insert holes using a 1/4" drill bit. Use a sharp bit to ensure a clean hole and prevent dragging.

    5. Place your bottom section in position. Hold tightly and mark your hole inserts with a pencil.

    6. Use a simple hole punch to punch a clean 1/4" hole into the bottom sections.

    7. Insert your plugs inserts to check for alignment and fit.

    8. Use a file to make adjustments. Be careful not to tear the bottom sections. Use light pressure.

    9. Mark your plug inserts flush with the gauntlet. Remove the plug inserts and saw off the excess above your mark using a hobby saw.

    10. Insert your plugs, check for flush. Do not glue.

    Second set of photos continued below.
  22. Oct 23, 2008, 7:49 PM - Re: MOW New ESB Gauntlet Kits Now Available #97

    Hey Guys,

    Here's the second set of photos and instructions:

    11. Remove bottom section with your loose plug inserts and put aside while you begin prep work on the upper sections of the gauntlets.

    12. Mark your next set of holes for your flame unit. I'm recycling this painted flame unit. I have 2 nylon screws inserted in the back of this flame unit which will line up with the holes marked in red. Since this version flame unit is not a load bearing detail you may want to simply glue it in place without any reinforcement or nylon screws and bolts etc. I'm not using the nylon bolts along with the nylon screws attached to this flame unit, I'll be gluing it into place later due to the paint.

    13. Mark your large plug detail and drill two 5/16" holes. I'll be using 1/4" wood dowels to secure this plug detail instead of metal screws. The 1/4" wood dowels will fit easily into the 5/16" pre-drilled holes.

    14. I used 2 wood dowels 1/4" in diameter and a 3/8" in diameter nylon stem for the plug detail. I temporarily super glued it into place and followed up by pouring a small amount of resin over the wood dowels for a good bond. Note: pouring resin over the dowels may cause some leakage through to the finished side of your gauntlet..to prevent this from happening simply fill in the surrounding area around the plug detail with clay.

    15. Mount your velcro closures. sand all areas before gluing into place.

    16. Once your velcro glue is dry reinsert your bottom section with your plug inserts and begin gluing them in place. Apply a small amount of glue into the surrounding area of the hole inserts themselves. Quickly wipe away the excess.

    17. Sand the surrounding area before the super glue has a chance to dry. This will work the sanding dust into the nooks & crannies mixing with the super glue to ensure a very good bond.

    18. Sand all areas flush but don't over do it.

    19. If any plug inserts will be seen simply fill in with carpenters wood putty. Sand clean after it's had time to dry.

    20. Attach your flame unit.

    Repeat this same procedure with the left gauntlet.

    Hope this helps,
