Simple Signet Ring
Portable Benchtop Spring Pole Lathe
Clay the Ancient Way....Sort Of
no clue, I haven't used this on any pieces of clothing that are intended for daily use so the wear and tear isn't as high. but it doesn't surprise me that bleach has a negative effect on fabrics. thanks for the comment. cheers, knut.

How to Make Maple Syrup
Super Gripp Homemade
Crossbow Trigger Mechanism (simple But Sturdy)
if its looks+weight vs usabililty go with aluminium rings, way lighter and can be super shiny or can be painted/anodised to look more like steel. As for the ring orientation, they are oriented this way to conform to the wearers body (no loose hanging maille) so it wont hinder movement.Thanks for the ible and telling people this is for looks only.Cheers, Knut
Medieval Brigandine, Nice and Easy
Space Balls Dark Helmet Costume
Viking Helmet Made Out of Wood Shavings
Safety Pin Crocodile Clips for ETextiles
If you were to go for something like that I would recommend using something like bike sprockets for the oculars, quite suicidal to have spikes going inward but it probably looks cool.Cheers, Knut.
Real Metal Looking Sword Out of Pallet Wood
DIY Bench Power Supply With Old Computer SMPS
ow wow i didn't expect any comments on this ible anymore, no that project has sadly been sitting at the bottom of my todo list since i got a fulltime job. i might continue that project somewhere in the distant future but for now im mainly making armour sorry.cheers, knut.
damn, looking at the end product i'd say you could have made enough money for an anvil just working as a machinist for a couple of days. cheers, knut
As mentioned in a previous comment, the main reason why I used this method rather than clay / putty is simply that I made due with the stuff I had lying around. Using a disposable container to lower the amount of clay needed is a nifty idea.thanks for the comment.cheers, knut
the main reasons i opted for a transformer rather than batteries is that batteries tend to run out quite quickly when doing larger pieces and have a tendency to explode / leak if messed with too much.
Making Dimensional Recycled HDPE Stock for Projects
nice ible! two questions, how much does it weigh and how thick are the plates?cheers, knut
the holywood style "boobplate" would be highly dangerous to the wearer i agree, however there may very well have been pieces of armour to fit more suitably to the female form. exagerations can be made to armour to "fit" the sex of the wearer, for example:
great job, just a tip, make something with a little extra padding on the shoulders and most importantly wear a sturdy belt. the following vid will explain better than i can:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4Uw1g5MU_U

sweet display piece, but a horrible clickbait title:P
Honestly I dont know, I've never worked with vinyl. However, all the stencil needs to do is keep the water / acid from reaching the metal, Try out a small test piece with some vinyl scraps and you'll know;) cheers, knut
Medieval Visby Gauntlet
if you want the "blacksmith" look, after its finished just place it on your fire while its on low air to get it blackened, then while its still hot use some beeswax or parafin to give it a layer of wax, this will keep the rust out.(I use parafin on my armour, not a spot of rust in years, unlike oils wich evaporate after a few months)
Move over wax fruit, here come plastic garlic!
The rest of the bike I mostly used the frame for tubing to make my bellows / forge. The other crank is being transformed into a broken back seax. I kind of regret ever starting that project, the steel used in bike cranks is really REALLY tough metal, so each heating only moves a minimal amount of steel. Will keep a good edge in the end though.cheers, knut.
ofcourse! nothin like some dirt and molten slag between your toes! also dont forget the large pieces of glowing steel and hammers flying around!
Mastering the "J" Hook
Looks pretty good:) what are you going to hang from it? also you can use a small punch to create hole rather than a drill.cheers, knut.
