    Hi All
    Iím looking for some help and advise on what to use for and where to get all the greeblies for the ROJ gauntlets that I am working on.
    I am in the UK so if any UK fetts can recommend UK sources that would be great as Iím trying to keep costs down and would like to avoid to many shipping costs if I can.

    I think I have identified all of the parts I need, here is what I think I need:-

    Left Gauntlet
    Key pad
    Detail part
    2 push Switches
    Flame thrower/laser barrels
    Rocket

    Right Gauntlet
    2 toggle switches
    4 darts
    2 Things to connect the hoses to (not sure what to call these)
    Hose

    As far as I can see thatís all the bits but please let me know if Iíve missed anything.

    I think I have found a place to get the toggle switches from but they have several sizes and Iím not to sure which ones would be best?:-
    http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?menuno=12885

    The same site also has push switches but again Iím not to sure on what size to get?
    http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?menuno=12887

    From searching here I have found out that the Key pad is from a MQ-1 calculator and the detail part on the left gauntlet is a dental expander (what ever that is!) but from what Iím reading they are both hard to find. Dose anyone know where I can get replicas from? Iíve seen threads where people have them but have not been able to find any for sale.
    Also Iíd like to know where I could get all of the other parts from or if itís possible to build them with parts from hardware stores?
    Iím sure with all the knowledgeable and helpful people Iíll be able to find all I need.

    Dont think we do have Radio Shack here. I've not ever seen one.
    We have a place called Maplin that sells the same kind of things.
    I linked to some switches they sell in my above post but like i say I'm not sure on the correct size. Maybe if you know the ones to get from Radio shack we could compare them to the ones I've found?
