    Is it repairable? I assume you would have to attach/paint the replacement part anyway, also did you paint the gauntlets? If not maybe someone could fix it up for you? Put some pics up it will help us see what can be done

    It canr be mended unfortunately. It shattered as i tried to drill the hole in it a bit bigger. I dont know who made the gauntlets, they are not that great but they do the job.

    Ok it like this with ruffkintoy ,in ocotober i paid him $260 for a set of ESB gauntlets in which i STILL have not recieved from him !!

    It been lies after lies with his excuses saying hes sending them out ...
    there is a thread on here about chuck and i think he still owes a few of us on here with stuff from him ,not to mention on the hunterslair.com where here taken peoples money with no stuff too

    Hi guys,

    Jon, my best suggestion is to take some measurements of your guantlets and carve a piece out of insulation foam (pink or blue stuff)

    then coat it with bondo/epoxy/autofiller etc.

    Maybe even put the hole/stud in it beforehand so you don't crack it again.

    I wish you weren't across the pond otherwise I'd send you a replacement for free, it just wouldn't be worth the price of shipping for either of us since I have confidence you could make this part.


    WOF plans for gauntlets might help too, but I would take measurements off your broken piece/actual gauntlets

    sorry to hear about your jam

    i'd use plumber's epoxy putty (assuming that's available in your area). cures in a few minutes, easily shaped by hand, and once it's fully cured you can drill / sand / shape / whatever.

    actually, i'd probably embed a hose fitting from the plumbing aisle at your local hardware store right into the putty while it's curing so that you don't even have to worry about drilling into it.
