    Right gaunt has come to a halt as can't seem to get hold of any Alco MPE106d switches . Am able to get them here in the UK in bulk of 100 but only want 2 so if there's any OB1s out there can you help me ' your my only hope'

    The gauntlets look great, I mean really awesome!. I see your missing part, not a hard fix though How have you connected the parts together? have you used epoxy stick, or soldered/weld seams?

    Cheers fettwho, nearly all of the above . I used bonding sealer for the main and aruldite steel epoxy for more fiddly bits followed by finishing with alu filler . My nephew has just given me a mig welder so if i do another set i shall weld the majority . The sealer was the best non weld option as i found the epoxy showed signs of cracking under stress . Can i say Wizards templates are excellent if you're looking to make you own

    Your welcome
    I was wondering about epoxy, great stuff if its thick enough, but brittle when thin.. Yeah I love WOF templates, and maybe one day I may use them for a second or third set of gauntlets, as the results I have seen from them have been great. i.e like yours.
    The part your missing I made from a craft knife handle ( the round aluminum ones ). I crushed and filed the ends and drilled the center. also filed each side to even it up, and it really looks the part.
    Photo added to show, sorry not very close shot, will dig them out and take better photo if needed. ( unless you manage to source one )
