Knight's Gauntlets
« on: Nov 26, 2015, 05:02 PM »
Since I have the Helmet thread started, might as well do one for the gauntlets too. These are going to be mostly aluminum. Got tubing cut roughly today. Found the hinge and still designing the climbing claws and the grappling hook.

The climbing claws will be something like these.

The grappling hook will look hopfully a lot like this when completed.

grappling hook parts cut and in the hands of my welder buddy. Will post pics as soon as I get it back. For the tip I'm thinking a modified wine stopper.....hopefully can locate an aluminum one then it can be tig welded too.

Well, got grappling hook built. Turned out almost 3x the size I intended. Might find another use for it ....

Attach a coil of rope and hang it from your belt?

Lol, it doesn't need to be as long as it is either. That just happened to be the length of material that I found to make it with. But does give me options. There are a few aluminum wine stoppers that would make a fancy tip. No matter what, it will get used for something and will look all pretty polished up! Still gonna make a smaller version to go on my gauntlet though.
