FT\'s ESB Gauntlets


Active Hunter
FT's ESB Gaunts

Ok, Chuck asked that I post some pics when I got them done, so here they are. The pics turned out a little dark - sorry


The left gauntlet features my scrath-made flamethrower. The rest was from Chuck's kit. The flamethrower was made from 1/4" aluminum rod (I turned the indentions on my drill press), some brass tubing, copper tubing, a flange off of a paint brush, and solid hunk of aluminum I cut with a hacksaw (whew!).


The right, is pretty much the kit, except I added aluminum panels to the rope-shooter.

You can see in both pics, that I used rivets to hold my sides together. It may not be dead on accurate, but I planned on wearing this thing a lot and wanted to be sure it wouldn't come apart.

Comments and questions welcomed.
Looks great. I never thought about using rivets to assemble mine. Great idea. Nice work on that flame thrower(y)

TK-409's site has a link to where you can acquire a set of those darts. I think they are like $41.
THey are made out of machined aluminum.
Alot of people will use Bic Pens too. They look pretty good but still do not compare to the machined ones.

Actually my missles came with the kit I bought from Ruffkins.
