    23:56 at this point in time you could say Adam and Bill have.... ACEd this build so far.

    Have you considered inserting the finger lames into a pvc pipe with the correct inner diameter, and using a smaller pvc pipe to press them into shape and heating the pipe to mold them? You could even use a partial pipe, cut open lengthwise?

    I love how Adam fucking Savage still says that he is learning new things and techniques in a field which he has been in for decades.

    I made a pair of gauntlets like this and the helmet out of galvanized ducting. Took me a few months of cutting and beating with a ball peen hammer. The metal looks and sounds nice but is a bit dangerous. Your way looked a lot easier.

  • Alexandra Limelight

    Am I the only one who thinks that it would be better with Jamie? Like good old times?

    It's always so fun to see somebody who does this sort of work drop nuggets of gold to problems you've had. Just use a sharpened brass tube to punch holes. Increase your pattern 10% to keep it from being too tight. Small things that save a huge amount of time and effort refining.

    @28:21 "That's what I also love about this specific hobby, is how accessible it is" after being told that the foam that was used is only $5 worth, and while using a real armor arm shield and heavy equipments and laser cutter that I will have to starve myself for 2 years to be able to get.

    I want to learn how to make armor, but I can't seem to find a good enough guide to recommend the most cost efficient and appropriate eva foam to use. Like should I order online, or go to my local home depot and get those huge tile squares in a 6 pack for $25 which measure 24" x 24" x .375" ? The glue and heat gun seem simple enough, and I just recently had an epiphany about how templates are made/can be made.

    I guess one way you get and stay worth $8 million is to charge people $40 a year to watch content you are going to do anyway. (and charging WAY too much for a t-shirt) I guess I shouldn't complain about $3 a month. But even that is a lot for "starving" students and other lacking-in-financials people. I might do it. I hope it's worth it.

    I’d love to have a mechanical arm, and just wear sleeveless shirts just so people could see by armored mechanical arm, then paint it the same color as the gauntlet, it’d looks so badass! Then I’d be a mechanical armored cyborg, I’d proudly take that title.
