    I used black rubber fuel line (hose) from discoutn auto parts. Very flexible and movable, easy to cut, yet strong. Many sizes to choose from there.

    yep that's the best thing to go with. the fuel hoses. they look the right sizes and are flexible. once you wear the armor, you will know that the more flexible the better. I know there is some sort of lines crossing in there but who cares

    I wanna be confie

    So out of curiousity, what are all the weapons on the Jango gauntlets? I know he's got a flame thrower, but not sure what part it comes from, the big piece on top or the side nozzles and he's got a whipline. So what and where are all the weapons on the gauntlets?

    Re: Official Thread - Gauntlets

    That is an outstanding question!
    One, I too would like to know the answer to.

    I hear people on here mentioning this part
    and that part, but at times I have no clue
    what they're talking about.

    Anyone care to fill us in?

    BTW... Kerr, welcome to the board!

    the whip cord- right gauntlet on side
    4 darts- Right gauntlet on top middle
    Rocket(Laser on Boba's I believe) - large object atop left gauntlet
    Flamethrower-Boxed on side on left gauntlet.
    Those are the ones i know of.

    Bobby, you'll find fuel hoses at any auto parts store. It comes in at 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, and 3/8 of an inch diameter. the 3/16th is the smallest and the 3/8th is the largest. I believe the 5/16 and the 3/8 inch is going to be the average size for Jango. It's usually about 89 cents to 99 cents per foot. Try fuel line instead of vacuum line hose because fuel line has a braided cord sandwiched between the rubber and won't bend up or "kink up" when you move your arms. I hope that helps! //Charlie.

    The sabre darts are recessed into the gauntlet right above the right wrist if I am not mistaken.

    Re: Official Thread - Gauntlets

    the piece is called a rod nut. can be found at most hardware stores, can be found at lowes in the compression fittings. i used 1/4".

    Thats what I'm talking about. The Pro's are obviously that you could save yourself from falling off of wet buildings and you could behead your enemies (assuming they don't behead you first). The con's would be assault with a deadly weapon and slicing up everything around you. I love it. I was thinking about creating the same thing. That should be easy to shape and attach from a thick plastic material or aluminum. Functional is a whole different story.

    Got Maul - Holy crap, no way I'd go mechanical I was thinking just a permanent attachement (stationary affixed) possibly detachable.


    Lynn TXP 0369 - yeah, I thought the same thing. If I made it a stationary attachement, we wouldn't have to sweat it.


    ShocKWavE - it could be cumbersome. That's why I think it should be detachable, but then therewould be a giant space/gap left in the bottom if the whip cord housing when it was detached. Maybe, I can do a detachable/interchangable whip cord housing, one with the blades, one without?

    Thoughts ?

    Yep, that's where I'm leaning

    But, it could be a cool accessory. I just dunno. Seems like this never ends, does it ?

    Hmm, I'm not sure yet but I am definetely thinking about it. Detachable and maybe clippable. Something like christmas tree fasteners of metal clips with small slits in the gauntlet. If they were seperate pieces, you could store em in your waist pouches.

    FP... Yeah, It just seams like it grows out of the crack underneith the whip cord launcher. It is not very believeable when it is watched in slow mo, in real time it looks cool, slow mo, no way...

    My Jango will sport it just like a Batman spiked glove gaunlet.....

    Not a bad idea at all. But we're back to the grooves in the bottomof the whip cord housing being visable. (I know that's really anal)

    If there were two whip cord housings, with quick disconnect hoses, we could use a clip system of some sort like you are referring too for the whole whip cord housing perhaps ?

    I noticed that too. Slow mo is soo wrong It shatters our visions and dreams

    So, you mean yours will look similar to the 12 inch Marmit Style Jango then ?

    I don't know FP, seems like it would just be easier to permanently attach it but to have the option of the special feature. Seems like just one more thing to fall off your suit while doing the walk around. I think it looks cool though man but you know me, I'm all about carnage! :evil
