Thank you, I really appreciate the comments from everyone. Feedback is always good. Dont hesitate to critizize or suggest making a suggestion to improve something, I am always willing to accept recommendations and critiques from the professionals, to me, the non-pro. Thanks again.
Quick question... And I may have missed the answer... But did the stalk come sunken like that for the screw? I had a Boba stalk from him, and it wasn't like that. How did you go about doing it, if it wasn't stock... Or was it...?
Hey, the method I currently have to hold together the Stalk is pretty simple. The stalk I recieved from BKBT did not come like it is now. I was firtunate enough to use countersink bits on it. Since its made of Alumminum, its a soft metal, and I was able to use the countersink bits with a drill to make a hole large enough around the already existing hole to drop down a screw/bolt that I found. I have picture of the whole set up on my progress thread if you want to take a look. The thread is titled, "It has Begun." Hope this helps
Cool... I'll have to check my cousins garage for those bits... I mooch all of his tools.
Anymore trouble from the magnet system? I was thinking about attaching some posts to the ear cap and then drilling all the way through the helmet and holding it on with o-rings, but if the magnets are holding, then I'll go that way instead.
BTW, the helmet looks awesome and you did a great job.
Oh yea, I went out and bought a paper towel holder from "Linens and things," works well, but I just need to balance out the helmet so I can have it centered without weight compinsation.
What I plan on doing is putting both magnets in the helmet side (but only gluing one)... Then when the helmet side magnet is dry, I'll put a drop of superglue on the other magnet, then line up the earcap and press it on. Its just has to be pretty much dead on first try.
I know that the superglue may not hold the magnet. When/if it comes off, it should leave a nice mark as to where the magnet was... So it should be no problem to refasten.
Either that, or I'll just stick to the post/oring idea... The Protocol bucket that I'm converting may not be thick enough in the ear section to hold the 2 magnets. How thick would you say that the ear section has to be to hold both magnets?
Sorry, I kinda derailed the thread... Go ahead and PM me a reply, that way you can get back to receiving feedback on your sweet bucket.
Dropped ya a PM. I forgot to expand on the "stand" I bought. I will post pictures, I would have last night, but my internet was messed up, and I was doing dial-up. I want to show the paper towel holder so that ohers will get an idea of what they can use. The BKBT is an especially large helmet, and this worked very well. Was hard to find something that would. Makes for a really nice display......now, where to put it....
Heres the picture of the stand that I recently obtained, hope this helps anyone who may be trying to find one.
Jejeje In the lounge, as a trophy, itremains perfect
Awesome stand... You said thats a paper towel rack? Thats exactly the look I was gonna go for, but I was gonna hack one of those small $10 lamps apart.
I got this thing at Linens-N-Things. You'd be surprised what they sell for paper towel racks, I was certainly surprised. It makes a really nice stand as you can see. It has a very heavy, and sturdy base, with a no slip pad undernieth. However worth it to me, it was $20, but also had a discount coupon
