I need a suggestion on how to fix a problem with my MoW Guantlets. I attached hoses to the right guantlet and one of the connectors broke off overnight. I guess the hose was too heavy for it. See Pics:
These were an honor and pleasure to work with. These are simply fine art, but these things happen and I blame the damage on those stupid Jedi.
I would suggest re-enforcing that one area, but keep using the rubber. I have dropped that left guanlet missle four time with no damage.
If you could send me a PM on what the repair plan would be that will be great! Maybe you can send me the new part at my cost.
If you have a dremel tool or the prefered black-n-decker version then I would simply boar out a clean hole about 3/8in. diameter and around 5/8in. deep then insert a dowel made of nylon or wood. A good adhesive will do the trick to secure it into place otherwise resin it into place.
It's an easy solution than removing the entire plug detail which I've secured into place using nylon plugs and fiberglass resin..
If your not comfortable doing this than please mail it back to me and I'll be glad to take care of it for you and pay for the shipping both ways...
If it were mine, I'd go to home depot and get a very short doubled ended screw, drill a hole just a tad smaller in both parts and then just screw em together. I love those things and used them on both my prior jet pack and gauntlets. I'll post a pic of the type of screw I'm talking about if I can find one in my garage.
Hope all the bugs are figured out before I get mine. Still excited as heck to get them, especially after seeing Jango Uri's finished gaunt.
Holy crap THAT is a quality artist I think I will post and ask around before making another purchase. There are just way too many talented pros to keep shopping e bay. Mow .. next time I get gauntlets they'll be from you.
